Hello guys.
Yesterday i saw this link of the Samplephonics facebook page. This looks pretty interesting!

I didn't know they also produced plugins. Their samples are top notch, i hope this thing will be on the same level!

Here's also the video teaser of the plugin:

There's a lot on the GUI so not sure how that would fit in a Kontakt panel, but is there any other reason this couldn't be another Kontakt based virtual instrument, like their Nevo Analogue Machines and 808 instruments?

In the newsletter I got today they indeed called it a plugin. Exciting!

I don't think

"Here's a peak at the modular synth we used for our upcoming plugin. We spent many many hours sampling a wondrous collection of sounds from this beauty...all to be unveiled soon!"

many hours of sampling !!

If their Dirty Modular will be a real(!) vst/au synth, would be great. But if it`s Kontakt based, hmm i don`t know.

Also if they called it plugin in their newsletter, their Nervo Kontakt instrument was also called "rompler".

I paste here what i've wrote on their facebook page as i was really interested ona first look, but...

"Nice one, but it would be an original product if it had switchable modules and connections really like modular stuff, i/o, cv i/o, modulation sources and destinations with all the unusual modules that can be found on analog modular hardware.
OSC, LFO, Filters, Envelopes and a couple of fx with a SEQ seems to me nothing new than a pretty standard vst with a good designed skin.
Probably it will sound great of course, but synthesis side, i don't see anything innovative.
My 2 cents of course."

Using cabling graphics to show signal flow is a nice idea. It can't be as flexible as semi-modular VSTs or a proper modular, but the snippets sound decent, and there's plenty to do.

However, I'd be interested to know why they chose for this to be a Powered by Kontakt library - I'm guessing it's bumping the cost up by 35-50%. Is it to keep the samples locked in a monolith? I can't believe that the proportion of potential purchasers who haven't got Kontakt full version is high enough to make it a money-driven decision, but I could be wrong. Just curious... :shrug:

Watcha chaps.

I bought this just before the intro price went up.
Sorry, I can't answer all your questions (many of which are subjective taste issues, eg Kontakt vs VST), but for CPU hit here is a hopefully(!) useful pic from my PC just now:

Image

In a nutshell, with five fingers holding down keys at 96khz on most patches, CPU is between 30-55% (in Ableton Live 8 ).
TBH, bouncing down to audio would be my preferred manner, but the CPU hit isn't terrible by any means.

It sounds absolutely fantastic, imho.

Each to their own, natch, but if you're looking for a great sounding modular program, you won't get many better than this currently.

Cheers.

What would be best value?

With Arturia Modular V at half price at the moment, it costs like 1/3 of Dirty Modular
