i had the same question and of course i went to the usual suspects folders, IgniteVST, should be in roaming or local. and it is in roaming, no uninstaller.. and it installed itself completely wrong, vst3 files in a normal plugin folder, vst2 32/64 bit together... that can be solved...
but no uninstaller, i can find...

EDIT: windows 10, demo version, 1.2.2 i think. i am not a noob.... but this is a bad installer.

still thinking if it worth it buying, but this is something i do not like...

EDIT: i guess you mean where all the data stored, yes that i have found. but no uninstaller. removing everything isn't a big deal. but well....

the price seems like a no brainer, but i can do wavetables in reaktor 6.3 (full), pigments, ableton (...), codex, synthmaster 2.9, msoundfactory.. i do not want to have a serum or whatever, taste, and my workflow (i can get the modular quality stuff out of pigments..).
win 7 pro; cubase 10 pro, live 10 suite (+push 2), reaper, arturia V collection 6, reason 10, maschine (mk3+jam), korg collection, komplete 11 ultimate, softube modular, VM and many more..

I wouldn't even pay the £11 for this. The GUI is nice but didn't hear any nice sounds that I would ever use, and they all seem to have this cheap generic digital sound which I hate. I'd much rather keep the 4gb of disk space

I just purchased and installed Sektor and I'm having some issues with running the program.

I included a screenshot of what I'm experiencing.

thanks!

I figured out what the problem was. I moved the AppData folder to another hard drive.

I had to do an mklink, which is really confusing and backasswards.

Unfortunately, I have to agree. The GUI is nice indeed and it’s got some promising feats but at its current state it’s pretty much useless to me. The sound is just so thin. Considering you can get Synthmaster One for like 29 € right now, even the 15’ish € is too much. Just compare the filters of the two. It’s like night and day.

Well I love Sektor I can easily modulate anything including the effects and see the results live, and easily drop samples onto the GUI and even Reverb IR's into the convo player to compliment a patch I'm working on. Plus it allows thing like being able to use LFO"s as another Oscillator and drawable envelopes.

That's just ridiculous. You can't possibly have bothered to listen to the presets. Backtobassic, which is one of the first Bass presets you'll encounter, is speaker-bustingly huge in the sub-bass. Or try the first Lead preset, 10ten Trap-a-Thon 1, and listen to how big that is. OK, it's a little bright but you can fix that with the LP filter or by applying a bit of EQ. I think it was when I got to 10ten Trap-a-Thon 3 that I decided I really wanted this synth in my collection.

There is nothing wrong with Sektor's filters, you can use the resonance to crank the bottom end as much as you like, just what a good filter should do.

At current prices, I reckon getting both Sektor and Synthmaster One makes sense because there is not really a huge amount of overlap between them. I get that Sektor won't be to everyone's taste, it has a really nasty character to it that a lot of people wouldn't be into, but to say it's "thin" or that the filter is no good is just rubbish. If I could only have one, I think Sektor is the better choice for what we do.
As it stands, though, you can have them very cheaply so why wouldn't you get both? I am off to get the other one now, while it's still cheap.

Has anyone here had latency issues with Sektor?

I just noticed today that an arp I created was out of sync with the drums and other instruments in Ableton.

Not that I've noticed. I've not really put it into any songs yet but it plays OK from my controller.
