Found a pretty significant bug (I think) in the mac version of 3100 using Ableton Live..

Everytime I start and stop playback the Resonators section resets to default- the ui doesn't reset but the sound/parameters do.

So I guess I'll try the 3300 since that's a thing. I liked the challenge of trying to make the 3100 do my bidding.

*Edit*
Oh wait, the 3300 is just the 3100x3... Even more quirky fun :)

*Edit 2*
Looks like the Resonators bug only happens in the AU version. So VST it is.

:hihi: making a cheesy, cheesy, cutesy little test...

It's awefully addicting this stupid little piece... so I torture you ALL with this! But I spare you the loop! :hihi:
I think, the synth sounds really very juicy and nice, but it's total horror to program. NOT FULL BUCKET'S FAULT, in fact, this is probably a stroke of genius for all I know, because I totally believe it's a 1:1 translation and I can almost feel the Korg-ish sound, which I actually like! :)

Anyway...if my brief exposure to it is any indication... Oh, help us!
Right after Thorn gave us a chance to work with next to no external effects, this round will be likely ruled by them. In this silly little test up there I've mostly just used a bit of Abstract chamber, but a heavy saturation on the little snare-like drum at the end and some EQ on the hihat-like tings... uhm... it will probably be hell! But hey, we've winged freaking Noisetar (another stroke of genius in itself, but...ehm...you know what I mean!)

Sounds a hell of a lot better than what I've come up with.

I'm just using presets because I can't be bothered straining my eyes on the microscopic controls.

Will probably knock this piece out in a few hours and take my rightful place at the bottom of the list.

I just needed something to do to get my mind off of work for a while and this was a nice distraction.

You know, I used a bunch of presets, too. That beautiful simple sequence rhythm thingy was kinda pleasant. The main accompaniment is a custom preset from scratch... don't remember about the other two lead like sounds, but the string like pad is a preset, too. The "drums" :roll: are from scratch, of course.

I just updated the track preview with a milder mixing and a less harsh cut at the end, hehe! Felt it was a little too nasty. :scared:

I think I need to break out the manual :dog:
Just a touch of EQ and a tickle of compression

I'm having the same trouble as Jasinski did but with the MSG1. It's set to modulate the filter cut-off, I save it, but as soon as I either re-start the sequence, or close the GUI and run the track it forgets i's setting. I can only get it to play properly if I switch to the saved patch while it's playing. Bug in AU version? I'm using Logic Pro X.

AAHHH, I just figured out how I can make "noise", using AM and the MG1 on W.
Neat! 8)

Hi Wags
I like your tune :)
Just a heads up: Voxengo Curve is not free - you might want to change that?
