Agreed. I overlooked this one for a long time just because I didn't find the GUI appealing, but the sound and features are fantastic.

The included instructions for how to install this was not very good. To save other newbies like myself 10 minutes to figure it out, here is how it is done:

Extract downloaded zip file.

Put "009. Gamelan" folder in ....Documents\discoDSP\Corona\Banks folder

Put Gamelan.dwb file in ....Documents\discoDSP\Corona\Waves folder

Put the two sf2 files in ....Documents\discoDSP\Corona\Waves\User.dwb folder

Are there plans to make the 4 controls in the unison section automatable like the rest of the synth controls? Would be nice, both for automation and I miss them in my automap template.

We will think about it.

Unison amount can be controlled using Mod Matrix right now.

But that doesn't let you have automatic control from hardware, For example using Ableton's configuration on plug-ins allows parameters to be controlled from any Live instant mapping device like Push, APC40 etc. Without these controls being automatable thy can't be controlled this way, or with NI Maschine knobs, or with automap etc. Automatable parameters are the key to hardware control for most things these days.

All the other source buttons and knobs are. Shame these ones aren't for some reason.

A big plus is that Corona got resizeable GUI, very nice to be able to see the controls properly.

Not many plugs got that.
