Synplant is a software synthesizer with a genetic approach to sound creation. Instead of creating patches the conventional way by turning dials and knobs, Synplant lets you explore a world of organic sounds by planting seeds that grow into synth patches. The purpose of this product is to move focus away from the sometimes intricate and difficult process of sound synthesis and instead let you develop sounds by simply using your ears.

You will find that creating synth patches with Synplant will be as easy as listening and deciding what you like and then having the sounds evolve in the directions you desire. Although Synplant is exceedingly easy to use, whatever you do, do not let its relative simplicity fool you. Beneath its straightforward and playful interface you will find a versatile synthesizer of the utmost quality with lots of character. Also, once you are ready to get your hands dirty and dig deeper into the anatomy of Synplant you will have the option to crack open your sound seeds and modify their underlying genetic code.

Would likely buy it if it were 64-bit.

Excellent work, Philipp! Thank you :) Early morning here and just reclining to a low-beat Plant 79, 3-ball pattern and watching the MIDI go by....in a slow..hazy...daze ;)

For those who didn't get the word yet, Synplant is now 64-bit with the free 1.2 update. :-)

its a good product and has no competition as far as i could find, but the price is not accurate. it's $99 plus vat, which makes it about $123. 99 does sound more attractive, but it's not what you actually pay.


16 October 2015 at 9:35amskepsys82

99 + 23.76 = 122.76.

thatz the actual price.

My bad, misread your reply...

That's just common practice. Ugly, but common. Since a long time. Every country has different VAT and online shopping is global, you can't show a huge list of (how many countries are there? 150?) different prices.

16 October 2015 at 10:08amskepsys82

when checking out, the vat and thus the correct total price is shown, so the technical capability to do so exists. why then not replace the purchase button with a button that actually shows the correct price? it is because 99 does sound better then the actual price, psychologically more appealing. on eastwest quantum leap orchestra the price you see is what you pay, no extra taxes. being a digital product, the seller does not have more expenses to ship it digitally to romania then to ireland - it;s digital, nothing is different - so why should i be made to pay 24%, and someone less then that? i dont see the logic. it's the same product, and nobody actually ships it to me physically, we both get just a link or code as a result of the purchase, yet im supposed to pay more than you (by you i mean another buyer).

16 October 2015 at 11:08amstardustmedia

Yes, it could be technically possible. The IP tells you where the user is from. But I don't think it's trivial.

I checked EW and their prices are VAT included. But it's not the VAT I have to pay. During check out it shows you then the price without VAT, that would be MY actual price. You have to track all the different VAT, they also may change.

It's definitely more attractive to show the lower price. I just know I have to pay a little extra. That doesn't bother me.

16 October 2015 at 11:36amskepsys82

i further checked this and it seems it's something that changed regarding tva since 1 jaunary 2015 in all e.u. states, so it seems to be recent. i purchased ewql 2 years ago and that might be why i didnt notice this. still, the site says 99 bucks, and i have to pay 123 almost. you might be ok with it, but to me, although i find it's still worth it, 123 is certainly not just a little more than 99 but it is a lot more. any way you put it, it's still deceiving, im shown a price when in the description page of the product, and when i actually go for the buy, im shown another bigger price. someone buying from luxembourg pays 17% vat, like if it wasnt already enough that its one of the most wealthiest countries in the world anyway, they just had to pay less somehow :| and i have tp pay 24%, being from second poorest country in e.u. (romania). how is this fair? if any, it should have been the other way around.

16 October 2015 at 11:08amstardustmedia

PS: When you check out you already gave them your country. To show the correct price already in the shop is more difficult.

16 October 2015 at 11:37amskepsys82

might be more difficult, but wouldnt it be more transparent and correct towards the buyer?

16 October 2015 at 11:50amstardustmedia

Yes, but I think that's the wrong place to discuss that ;)

$99 even for me, so pricing is accurate...but im in the united states.

i dont see the reason for complaining...it clearly states +vat.

at least they dont jack the price for us users with a fake vat...like some devs do.

19 October 2015 at 6:55pmskepsys82

i did end up buying it after all, but i wouldve liked it if i knew the correct price before i made plans to buy it, not after, when i was already decided...in any case, the product is fun and easy to use, i cant deny that. and i feel its worth even the sum i paid in the end...just that it would have been more transparent if the actual price was posted on the site instead of the ambiguous (now, since january 2015 e.u. vat measures) 99 dollars.
