I'd say that too mate, although there must be a finalization for the product and make it officially available to public.

I agree but it still feels unfinished with bugs and even the GUI is a bit rough around the edges.

Actually there was an update by Clement (Olivier's friend), back in 2016, some fixes and that's it. I believe he doesn't have enough time. Perhaps it's better to contact him directly.

Oh I remember there was something wrong with the fm ratio or something. Maybe that is the update.

Exactly my point. Why let this great synth die because it can't be maintained? The main developer has sadly passed away and unless he had explicit wishes that his friend learn development and carry on, it would seem to make the most sense to just open source the thing at this point and let Oliver at least have that legacy.

Cheers!

I tried several commercial synths, but somehow it didn't click. Then I went to VST4free. Brainstormer has 5 stars, so I dld it. They have the old version without presets, though. So I did some research and came to this thread. Sadly the dev passed away. But I still want to thank them!
Wot a sound!
