Hi,

TS404 was deprecated from FL Studio, does a similar alternative exist? Something super simple, and when I mean super simple I mean like the TS404 which was very basic.


Many thanks for the help!

AFAIK, TS404 is the grand daddy of Dune.
TS404 from Sonic Syndicate then Wasp (inside Orion and FL) and Dune from Synapse Audio

Image-Line destroyed TS404 for me back in 4.12 version, IIRC, because previously you could set a very long release and then use knobs, automate them within piano roll(there were no automation clips then),
to create very interesting sounds and by slapping distortion onto TS404.
In a way it was like having electric guitar with insane sustain. This made TS404 to be quite interesting.
After that version of Fruity Loops you couldn't do that anymore and from that point TS404 was dead for me.
The party was over. That's how TS404 became the most boring thing in entire Fruity Loops, at least for me.

It is not included with FL Studio anymore and believe it or not I created most of my sounds with it. Using some effects I created some amazing sounds. It was very very simple but I haven't found anything like it. The standalone version is not a vst. Thanks for the help. I think If no developer is interested I wouldn't find anything as it. If I post this in the FL Studio forum I will get trolled. Thanks for your respect.

Create your loops with the old version and render them, if you love it that much

Yeah I love i too. Have used it a lot. Shame they discontinued it. It should be part of the 'legacy' stuff though.

I remember than i heard this Unit in 1999?
That Dreamtranz and SLCEnergy pattern are still in my mind after all those years.


When i look back and If i my choice would not be
- Cubasis(Printerport Dongle with extension :tu: )/
- Magix Music maker3.2 on 166 mhz PC plus
- a Yamaha CS1x (950 DM,,450Euro´´?)

i would take an EMU ESI 32(which i bought 2001) or similar entry sampler and this plugins.
I get away from it because of missing Midi and sync options...

Vier is an emulation of the Doepfer MS-404, which I believe TS-404 is based on.

But it is much more complex. It looks a monster synth.

don't bother, 'Vier' is crap.

then again, i doubt 'TS404' was any better. might be perfect.
