I wish NI hadn't locked the Absynth User Library, I was just getting started by then.

+1
Locked libraries has caused me to dump certain synths/companies.
e.g Tone 2.

Absynth user library is in read only mode, so you can still download patches for exploration...

Absynth is definitely the one piece of software that I wish NI would update.

Hopefully NI are lurking here and recognize the demand.

Yeah, like... they realize that about 15 to 20 people want a new Absynth.

yeah but if you extrapolate for outside the kvr population i bet the number is at least double your estimation!

Probably. Well, i don't know how many people really want a new Absynth, but, AFAIC, people are more into "boring" stuff, like the flagship VA's or wavetable synth we see everywhere, which are so damn popular.

I don't think there will be a new Absynth because of the complexity of it versus demand means there is not enough will.
Absynth is a pretty big part of what I've done from 06 thru 19. I think it's a finished product... and I don't mind the interface. So I'm not much a part of 'wishing for Absynth 6'.
Yes, it's small.
I'm a realist rather than an idealist. I don't think about this stuff when I work, it's not a thing here.

I know, I have a couple of banks there. I'd like to upload more and inflict more damage. :D
Other people will have upped their game since 2011 or whatever as well.

yeah, it is what it is.
and i like it as is too. don't have a 4k monitor or any desire to get one, my eyes are too far gone for it to be worthwhile :lol:
so long as it works on whatever os im on, its fine.
when it doesn't ill move on, theres other things, maybe not the same, but equally as fun and noisy :ud:

Yes, either this or the AKWF, lotsa fun.
I like Absynth and use it often, playing to its’ strengths not its’ weaknesses.
