Wow this has never been done before? I might have to carve time for this one too. I've been curious about playing with it seriously.

I've had no problems with the arrow buttons being unresponsive. The arrows for panning and pan-mod controls on both amplifiers seem to be reversed though... clicking left pans to the right. Using version 1.2.0.
Apart from that, love this noisy box :D
FM bells make me happy :D

Yes, the arrows of the "Range"-parameter at "Formant 1" also don't work in my DAW (Cubase elements/win64/scrooo-vers. 1.2.0). Dito with the Amp 2 arrows.

I'm really enjoying this. I took to it like a fish. Strange how some synths really connect with you but I also have a weakness for spectral or additive synths. I've had a concept in mind for a synth that I've been planning to build in Reaktor later this year that honestly isn't too dissimilar from the scroo concept, but more behind the scenes.

Not what one would call a 'fat' synth. :)
Should be a fun challenge.

Confirmed, the li'l arrows only work if the Formant mode is set to "Partial" or "Ring". And the Amp2 AM arrows are entangled, too. :oops: I'll provide a fix asap.

In fact that's what I always think, too. But be careful, this one can scrooo your loudspeakers... make sure the Clip button is always engaged... :hihi:

Yeah, but full bucket synths are sooooooo low on cpu that you can stack about 80 instances and get a very fat sound 8) .
I might try to break the instance count record... again.

OK, should be fixed with the new version 1.2.1. :pray:
