Confirmed at -41db. With Scope Schwa. I don't think it's a problem. Maybe in the FM modulation world is an issue? I used BLUE for many years enjoying its sound and power and I can't think of any real impact on the sound overal.
when made sound bit more quiet i think goes totally away i test soon later if remeber correctly. ps. -42db measurer using eye with voxengo span i think. if have still voxengo span installed i check again.

I can now confirm that there are some aliasing noises during the sine wave sweeps. The sine wave is not entirely clean overall. They same thing was in Punch once, but Jon fixed that by request.

Predator seems to show more than Blue.

I love Blue.

Best basses. Pads. Weird shit FX.

Pretty good patch management.

And I've only got the 'LE' version.


Nothing compares to it sonically.

It's sweet but powerful.


All these years later...

Blue is very useful. For 79 dollars it's a great buy even if you only use the excellent presets. But programming Blue is a delight.

I love love LOVE Blue. I bought in '06, i think, and still use it all the time. $79 is a good price, too. For the use I've gotten out of it, I'd happily pay full price again for the forthcoming upgrade to Blue II.
The fm stuff is pretty sweet, and I like using it as a VA too.

Re: the oscillator noise, just shoot support a note. Rob and Jon are really responsive, and very nice guys to deal with in general.

Light CPU and ridiculously easy to program. Well worth $80.

Sneak Preview and some info about Blue 2
http://blog.timespace.com/2013/10/rob-p ... k-preview/
The XY pad of Blade is now included, which is great in combination with FM synthesis.

A user interface overhaul with preset and bank manager, as found in Predator, SubBoomBass, Blade etc.

New range of waveforms, which are 'samples' dedicated to synth sounds, special sounds, choirs, strings, flutes and many more.

Added option to wave-sequence.

4 FX in total with new algorithms.
This is just a small feature set of the upcoming beast.
