You can always get the latest software upgrades here:

But wait a couple hours because 2.14 is just about to be released.

Sorry, the Fathom interface is not fancy enough to tell you that you need updates or where to get them,
all my time is put into the audio engine. You should check the upgrades page every couple weeks to check for upgrades,
since I release them very regularly.
I was not critical of the GUI but wanted know if I missed something.
Actually I really like the GUI and the multi-touch works great.

Regarding the version 2.3.0 seems newer than 2.14. I guess not.
I will wait a while and get the 2.14. I am certain it will be a worthy update.

Thanks for the very prompt reply.

No problem, I'll post here as soon as 2.14 is available.

KK -- Version numbering sequence can fool your eyes. Think of the latest version as being 2.14.0, versus your 2.03.0. :D

Yes, I think Everett should change the numbers. In my backup disk, where I usually store ALL the downloads for a while, versions x.10, .11, .12 and .13 appear ordered before x.2 and x.3. Actually, this is pretty much a convention followed by everyone. Everett should have used a 0 before the numbers in the older updates (before 10). Now, there's nothing he can do about it.

Problem is we already had updates numbered from 2.1 to 2.9 so this can only be solved by renumbering the version to 3.0 and start fresh.

The addition of the sampler modules would be a good occasion to renumber Fathom to 3.0 :wink:

I agree, because it is obvious that it will be a huge evolution, in terms of developments as well as in terms of palette of sounds for the users.

Yeah but what happens when we get to Fathom v2.99.0 and 2.100.0 :D

Please make a recording and send it to me.
Sorry, i really don't have time to help with this, but i just tried again and can tell you the following:
This time, the audio wasn't constantly dropping in and out like last time, but this time, after a minute or two of messing with random controls, the sound just cut out completely, and stayed silent. I had to reload FL to get the sound back, and the second time i tried, it didn't even cut out, but after a couple of minutes i got the error "FL has stopped working", and FL closed.
So including yesterday, that's three times in a row it's been unusable on my system.

Something else i noticed: when i turn any knob, it doesn't do anything to the sound, until i stop and start the play button, and then everything updates.

I must say though, this does look like a really nice synth, and i would love to have this working on my system and follow it's development, but it seems like it doesn't like my system for more than one reason.
I never even got to try the filters, as all the problems happened at the osc stage, with only one osc.
Oh, by the way, no osc retrigger?

Ok, anyway, here's some details:
FL latest (build 477)
One instance of Fathom (mono32) and nothing else (taking around 3% cpu)
Tried with used fixed size buffers ( with both sub-options checked and unchecked)
On-board soundcard

Win7 32bit

I have no problems with any other synths. In fact, i can't remember the last time saw a plugin behaving this badly

Hi Everett,

tried out latest version 2.14 - works without any problem on my side. Hope you got some sleep by now and feel fit enough for a round of feature requests ;-) Please just put them on the "todo later" todo list if you think they are worth at all.

What I wanted to do:
Basically the feature I would like to see is Mixing and Paning - What I was trying to to is to have one Oscillator and route it through two independent ways to the output - each way has a filter which is modulated by a LFO with lightly different phase. one is routed to the left and one to the right. I have added the patch in my post before this one...

What features could be worth thining about, that would have helped me:
  • Right now I can do the panning only by going through a Delay which is configured to let only the dry signal of one channel through and the other is set to zero volume. Would it be possible to get a Panning Module?
  • The last stage before output I have routed both paths additinally back into a chorus, giving three "outputs" together. This chorus is louder compared to the side channels, I would like to turn the chorus level down a bit. Would it be possible to get a VCA Module, or a Mixing Module where like 4 channels can be routed in and each can have a panning and a loudness control?
Thanks Everett, for reading. As I've said, please take this as a feature request on your list, don't start immediately with the implementation ;-) Probably it would be a good thing to collect some feature requests, get a voting about priority in your user base and only then implement them, if they are requested by more than one (me?) user...

Thanks

Not sure what to do to update so
I deleted the 2.3.0 Fathom folder
and installed the Fathom Pro 2.14

Can I use the 2.3.0 files in the Program folder,
Copy and paste them into the 2.14 Folder?

Yes, but there were a lot of new presets between 2.3 and 2.14,
so I would recommend using the 2.14 presets plus your own presets.

So the older 2.3 presets are not compatible with Fathom 2.14?
So I did it right by deleting Fathom 2.3 before installing Fathom 2.14?

May I suggest that you raise price and remove $2.50 update fees.
The higher price will also reflect the quality of your product.

You may state "The price of Fathom is much lower than it should be.
Ask our users!"
