Version reviewed: 1.26 on Linux

This is a simple-yet-powerful synth and that becomes even more evident when we consider it's still a WIP/alpha software. I really enjoyed how it sounds and its modulation section reminded me a little bit of Odin2, which is another synth with deep capabilities and a straight-forward interface. I think that in the near future Actuate can become a reference FOSS synth alongside not just Odin2, but TAL NoiseMaker and Helm as well.

Version reviewed: 2.2.1 on Mac

The MAC version has not been properly packaged yet. It's not in the complete AU format.
Please check again before release.

Sorry about that! I have updated the builds here on KVR and on Github and it should work now. I overlooked that since I am unable to test the Mac or Linux versions sorry.

Causes Cantabile to crash when trying to scan in this plugin. Causes vsthost to work at a crawl. (Windows os).

Hi! I was able to fix some issues in more 'live' oriented hosts in the past so I'll take a look into testing with those and fixing your issues if I can. I admit I have never used either host and test on FL Studio for the most part. Hopefully future versions become more compatible, and thanks for trying it out.

Edit: I tried Cantible and it looks like a memory access error happens that Cantible reports in its logs. I looked through their troubleshooting tips and tried all in addition to toggling OpenGL (Actuate uses it) and different audio engines with no avail. I would suggest opening a bug with Cantible for this so your exact environment details and logs are there for them. I also tried VSTHost and was able to open Actuate and send MIDI info to it. I compared Actuate's CPU/mem usage to Sylenth1 and only saw a few % difference with my CPU hanging around 9-13% and no stutters so I'm not really sure where your issue lies there. However it does seem that the plugin window half-works in VSTHost, so I made a few sounds in the param window to test that at least you can use it that way. For now I will make a note that those DAWs have issues so other user can be informed. Thanks again.
