This is only one of a few synths I just have to have. The bass on this thing alone is worth the discount price; lil poly ana is an absolute steal for just presets and modulation/automation. I find really there are no better deals on the net than this thing. Bold claim, but paying for the full price later would suck when you can get this thing for so cheap with version 2.x as free update. If they beef up lil poly with the update, this will be amazing musically using extra fx and such. If they never updated it, it would not make me feel less it's cheap. Mike's informative email reply really made me want to help by buying it. At the discount price it's great to see what's coming without paying the the regular price too. A lot of static on this topic. I decided there wasn't much to lose with what you get with where it's at now.

Honestly I think the 3 new gui's are fine, esp. compared to that original one. That first one looks brutal. jmo
Put preset 048 "Solo Brass" on at 192 khz. Play some high notes. Not even that high. Wince at the aliasing. Turn "anti-alasing on." Say, "WTF?" Turn anti-aliasing off. Boost quality up to 768. Note it's better, but still noticably aliasing. Load up XILS 4. Never use Poly-Ana again.
Is there any chance for fixing this issue?

Great lyrics! Can't wait to hear the tune. Did you use poly-ana on it?

I definitely don't see it the same. I know there is a bit of aliasing and I don't tend to prefer the anti-aliasing feature, however to me the xils synth is just nowhere near as satisfying. I think it suffers from a worse version of Arturias style if anti-aliasing that just kills the sound and turns it to fluff. I had Xils 3 (some crazy 5 dollar deal) and it was the only synth I owned that I uninstalled. I just found it to be the most lifeless synth I've tried. I'll take a bit of aliasing over that.
This is a block of text that can be added to posts you make. There is a 255 character limit. Once I have something clever, I will certainly fill it in.

I think it should be a Beatles pastiche where the "bla bla bla" replaces the "ya ya ya"

Poly-Ana is on sale for 75% off for it's 10th anniversary Black Friday sale.
So $44.99 down from $179.99 until November 30th.

I've been watching the Black Friday deals closely and this seems like one of the best so far.

I'd really love a 3.0 version.

I am surprised his business is still afloat. His sales must be close to zero, especially since he lost exposure on KVR.
