I used to have Ultimate. It was nice. Though I'm not sure what's the difference between all of those.. To my ears they all sound the same.

I have a number of questions.

First of all, when I first started downloading free stuff back when I began ITB recording, I downloaded the P8. I honestly don't remember how it sounded to me as I got rid of it and almost all my free 32 bit synths due to stability issues on my system. However, I had no idea these people had all these other synths. I listened to some demos and really liked what I heard.

1. What are the GUIs like? It's hard to tell from the screen prints but I get the feeling that they're on the small side, even for 1024 resolution. Yes, no?

2. Why are these so cheap? What's the catch?

3. Why aren't these talked about here AT ALL?

4. Does anybody here actually own any of these synths? What's your opinion?

This whole site has me totally bumfuzzled. When I first started asking for synths a few years back, NOBODY brought up ANY of these.

What gives?

How can it be Synthedit when there are 64 bit downloads?

Synthedit is now 64 bit ? I don't know, I stopped following these synths a long time ago. They were talked about 13 years ago. There was also something negative about the company in the early days but I've long since forgotten what it was.....

Maybe they are native coded now but I'm willing to bet not. Since developers are usually happy to proudly announce "Coded in C++" etc but rarely if ever announce "Proudly made with Synthedit" :shrug:

SynthEdit 1.3 is able to put out 64-bit VST2 and VST3, and also Mac AU, AFAIK. I read it's quite buggy though, but, i don't know.

Since when? Why is this the first I'm hearing of this? And if this is true, why hasn't all Synthedit devs made a 64 bit version for their synths?

Since quite a while back. Some devs have updated ...

It's difficult... all the modules a SynthEdit synth consists of have to be ported to 64-bit, and, AFAIK, many of the custom modules people used for their synths are not yet ported. It seems to be much easier with Flowstone, because the architecture is different, and doesn't have that modular approach. At least that's the way I understood it.

Okay, I'm no Synthedit fanbois. In fact, HG Fortunes synths are the only ones I even miss. But I did listen to the demos and these sounded quite good. I couldn't tell they were Synthedit. Had I been able to, I wouldn't have even gotten involved in this thread.

So something is going on with these synths that are possibly a cut above your typical Synthedit fare. I don't know. All I know is I really liked what I heard on a few of these and was trying to find the catch as to why they're so cheap.

I read where the people who coded custom modules for SE must re-code or modify those modules to work in 64 bit. So if an SE developer uses a third party module that hasn't been updated they are SOL.

I seem to remember the Superwave synths use stock modules but again memory may fail me.... :?
