I have exactly the opposite view - prefer to support smaller devs. The reason is bigger companies often hide behind electronic wall of support and quite often nothing is ever really fixed. I had this issue with Propellerheads for example. On the other hand in case of small devs at least they are more approachable
+1

I bought Viper not only because of it's high quality, but also because I wanted to support Adam after his 3 years journey of emulating the Virus. A really marvelous task! :clap:

If you want the Virus TI's wavetables for the Viper, send me a PM.
Please note. These wavetables are not mine.
Nice - I didn't know these existed out and about. Just found them and will give them a try later. Thanks for the heads up.

I have to say I love the latest soundbank for viper, as well as the update. Viper just sounds so awesome. :party:

So is it better to take 2 weeks off and have a good rest and back to work happy?
It's not either / or. Well planned business would release it two weeks before vacations to have the time to address the bugs during 9-17 working hours; or release it after holidays, when he's back "in the office" to take care of the reports.
In a one man operation sometimes unforeseen circumstances throw plans out the window. And I’m sure many users are happier he released it now before Xmas, rather than after he came back from vacation like it seems you want him to.

Tried the demo but it keeps crashing for me in FL Studio, Windows 10. It happens sometimes when I change a preset, and also it randomly just locks up causing the DAW to crash. Also sometimes it will cause audio glitches if I move plugin windows around while it's playing, seems to vary according to the preset.

Guys, if you just say its crashing I cannot do anything with that information. I need detailed info: which DAW you used, which viper version (32 or 64 bit), did you change the gui size, did you hold a key down when you changed presets when it crashed, which presets it crashed etc...

Using Win 10, FL Studio 20.6, 64 bit demo version of Viper. I did increase the GUI size by dragging the corner.

Hold down SQ Trance Heaven and move the FL mixer window around, that causes drop outs and crackling for me.

Something else I've noticed is that sometimes changing presets while playing will cause a momentary loud burst of the previous preset, eg from PL Organ Chord to PL Progress Chord, or SQ Techno Loop to SQ Tooth Guitar.

Not able to reproduce the crashing when changing presets yet.

Ok the audio drop outs is because of the arp causing the spikes in the SQ preset. The loud burst on preset change is only happening in the demo version, the full one clears the audio. The demo version has to be this way because of the demo restrictions and its a side effect.

Ah if that's a quirk of the demo then its's fine. I'm going to check Use Fixed Size Buffers in the FL wrapper settings and see if it helps. The synth sounds fantastic btw.

When you say it's the arp causing spikes, what do you mean? Why would the arp have that effect?

People have been posting pictures of Bitwigs performance meter that is sample accurate and it shows that the CPU goes up to almost 80-90% for a very short period of time every time the arp generates a note and it causes audio dropouts and stutters. This is because of a bug in FlowStone the way it handles midi data. Once they fix it this it wont happen and the performance should increase.

Cubase 10, Win7. Viper Demo 64 bit version. Did nothing but change presets, every preset change causes extreme cpu spikes. After switching 2 or 3 presets Cubase crashes, it shuts down without warning. Doesn't matter what presets. Did not change gui size or used any keys, doesn't matter how i change presets.
More BPM please

A question to those who have crashes with the update when browsing the factory presets.

Did any of the presets from/to you had switched before a crash involve a wavetable oscillator? Such presets should be in Factory Bank4 only I think.

Or did these presets have the unusual waveforms, espectially in osc3?

Or was it just random presets, no matter which ones?
You may think you can fly ... but you better not try
