Well, I installed Polygon and when I launched it in my DAW, it asked me to locate the Folder. I screwed up this step because when I load presets, it can't load them. I uninstalled Polygon and re-installed thinking it would ask me again on first launch but it did not. How can get it to ask me to locate the folder ?

You don't need to, you can set the folder path manually - just press the 'M' button and go to 'Change Polygon path" and browse to where you put the folder.

Would be good to know, currently on sale for just under £20 at Plugin Boutique. No demo to check and find out either.

The fact that it's monophonic is actually something that works for this particular plugin, you can create amazing bass-scapes with it for example (I made a whole bank just of bass-scapes)

It's a great plugin. I'm not all that keen on glitchmachines' interfaces as I find them a bit unintuitive - it's an excellent sound design tool, but in my opinion it really is being let down hugely by being monophonic.

Managed to get this and Convex for around £25 from PiB after surrendering reward tokens and virtual cash.

Should keep me occupied for a while. :party:
