Well, it's been a long time coming, just quickly got a glimpse of it, but it's looking rather 'shop-esq'.
I couldn't make any sense of it at first glance.
I was just hoping for a simple patch browser, not a twigs fried in honey or a donkey in a coffin.

Anyone had the time to check out these browsers properly?

Is this a seperate app, hard to work out what it is tbh. Does look like they are trying to use a sledgehammer to crack a nut and to have another agenda than simply enabling uses to manage presets which is what was actually asked for

Annoyingly I can’t seem to update my few Softube plugins as I have to go through this Gobbler stuff just to get to them

in your Softube account, scroll down to the bottom and click on "My Downloads". This will take you to the individual installers.

Still can't save a drum channel setting,
or a delay preset or any f**king thing other than a circus of tags.

Jezuz Softube.

What happened when Henrik left? Was his brain the only one operational?
Just a f**king patch browser yeah!
Not a website. Not a school magazine. Not a bibliography.

A browser.
Even just the basic means of saving a preset for each module.
Simple OS interface, nothing fancy needed.
Now we have a pop-up billboard full of bright colours and fascinating facts.

customer can eat it huh?
Missed trick.

I did that but it says I still need it setup a Goobler account, I don’t think I needed any account before as they are all iLoked anyway so downloads should be safe

Looks like this is one update I won't be installing.

Boggles my mind how this is my best selling library with all the ridiculous problems it has just saving a damn patch. And now this train wreck?

I'm convinced this company is run by a bunch of idiots.

quite poorly readable fonts.
GIANT icons with images on them to represent a preset.
A mammoth story of of an introduction that is anchored permanently to this phenomenal waste of space.

I'm SO pissed about this.
What the f**k is wrong with these people!?!?!

Ah, I see. For some reason I misread aMUSEd's first post as 'This is a separate app' rather than 'Is this'.

Somebody should write these idiots a very strongly worded letter.
