Rommelaar wrote:A while ago the main developer wrote that the remaining bits and pieces before releasing Dune 2, were some graphical user interface (gui) related things and presets. I see the importance for a good gui, but how important are the presets? I get that you need some to inspire and show what your product can do, but is it a selling point? Aren't we all told not use presets and create our own instead?

I guess what I am trying to say is that I ready to become a day one buyer. :love:


Having a big amount of high quality presets is very important and can be the biggest reason for a synth to become (very) popular and widely accepted. Sure, it has to be a good synth to begin with, but don't underestimate the importance of high quality presets!

I can think of a few synth plugins that are very good, but people are not talking about these synths at all and I never see them in a top50 something list of synth plugins. It's exactly these synth plugins that have a factory soundbank that doesn't do the synth any justice.

The amount of people that wants to focus on making music and simply don't have the time or experience to make their own sounds is very big. Somebody with a lot of talent producing/writing music doesn't have to be very good in making patches, and the same can be said the other way around. There are people who can make the most beautiful sounds out of any synth but they don't have to be very good in writing/producing. It's a different art.

So true that.
I put 95% of my time into doing sounds, and 5% into audio demos for those sounds.
If I did music more than the time I spend making sounds. It feels like I'm wasting time.

Something wrong happened with that quote, idfpower. Not very important, but maybe you can fix it. :wink:

Softube FET's on sale but I don't want this to come out and I don't have the money on my card. What to do, what to do.

Oopsie :dog: My bad :clown: Sorry :oops:


PS: regarding that Dune2 track - is that sound "doctored", or the actual sound of the synth? 'Cause if it's raw...my God, that thing sounds HUGE ;)

I don't think it's squeezed to death...

Having said that.. I'm wondering if Richard allowed for this audio demo to be posted in public. :?
