My wet dream would be uh-e or TAL working on the original code base for an 2018 implementation. It sounds like nothing else in the plugin market.
extra extra wet dream: turn it into a faithful VFX emulation :pray: :pray: :pray:

I still use IK Philharmonik and Spectrasonics' Atmosphere libraries, albeit within different plugins. Also, Ohmboyz, Michael Norris' Spectral plugs, and Wavearts Trackplug.

Yeah, same here. I wish someone would take it on and sort the GUI out so I could understand how to program the damn thing.

i'm a big linplug fan and will continue to use albino3, octopus, rmv, organ3 (and of course the newer plugins) as long as possible. i also recently reinstalled alchemy 1.55 and fxpansion synthsquad and i realize that i like them a lot more than some of my newer plugins. another big plus when using older plugins is the low to moderate cpu consumption. so for me personally i have learned that it is not necessary to have all the new and shiny toys, in some cases i much prefer my old and trusted vsts. :wink: :wink:
