Got the bass down with the new version of Bark of Dog. So easy it feels like cheating! As much as I hate one-knob-solutions - color me impressed.

But Synth 1 is generally so well-adjusted and self-contained with eq - almost no need for all the high- and lowpass-filters so often necessary with other synths - just a bit of adjustment on my hats, AllPads channel and master so far.

I find it stupid easy to just make all sorts of nice sounds in Synth1. and for those who are sick of it, I haven't used a single supersaw so far. uwu
It's very tasty, I swear!

If allowed, it will be very helpful for non soundcloud-pro users (as we can replace tracks without having to delete the earlier one).

Short answer, no. The tracks are in a SC playlist for voting etc etc … would take a lot of extra effort by BrianP to find/merge tracks from multiple sources etc … he has enough to do

Of course, I may be completely wrong. I understand the issues about replacing tracks and losing comments etc.

...and the sonic variety is just stunning. So far though convincing reed instrument sounds are tricky (well at least to me). The factory presets for say the saxes are pretty lame.

... and yes, no supersaws from me either/yet! I have made great overdrive guitars though - sounds like heavy distortions and/or fuzzbox - then pure bell tones - amazed all the time with it.

Really nice synth, which has been (almost) untouched in my DAW till now. I just might want to join you guys/gals this month :)
