thanks a ton! i guess we learned working with the costumers/community is essential from our development on the scope platform where the community is much smaller and there is no chance for success if you don't work with the people who use your products. this and the fact that me and the other main partner both come from exactly where most of you are coming from - passionate musicians coming from deep in the underground. it is nice to sell and make some $$, and obviously with facebook likes one can not buy groceries, but foremost we are synth freaks and it is a passion :)

@chaosWyrM

thanks for taking the time with a detailed response, happy that we could accommodate you :)

about the randomizers, i suspected this is what you will mention, indeed on the gui it is a button or two, but inside it would be another insane layer of stuff to add. I really love random features too, this is why at least on the app it was very important on my side to include it.

i don't know if you use it, but plauge bidule has really cool random features - it has both a regular randomizer and also a "mutate" button that is more subtle, both are great fun to hit with this device.

Small video my partner posted last night, just showing how the device is far from just a drone machine in the right hands:

I think this is a good example of what this synth is good at.
Also IMO for some weird, more old-school, sci-fi effects if you're into that.

@faxinadu

I purchased Aeolian Meditation yesterday. So far I have only tested it in Studio One v4 and Bitwig v2.3.5. While it loads in the 64-bit version of Bitwig v2.3.5, it gets blacklisted in the 64-bit version of Studio One v4 (Windows 10). Any idea why?

When starting up Studio One, it is scanning for new plugins. When it comes to Aeolian Meditation it halts for a while, and then says "failed to scan Aeolian Meditation", following by blacklisting it. The next time I start Studio One, it says "Aeolian Meditation ignored because of it is blacklisted".

In short, plugin gets blacklisted, so it won't show up in the list of plugins, so I cannot load it in Studio One. The only information I get from Studio One's plugin scanner log is:

2018/08/03 01:40:58.594 [Info]: UI Status: Scanning 408 of 552: Aeolian Meditation
2018/08/03 01:40:58.597 [Info]: File is on blacklist: Aeolian Meditation

So not much information on WHY it gets blacklisted.

the only thing i could think of right now is maybe since it has the OSC server inside somehow it doesn't like that. i will try to investigate more, going to see is studio one will work on one of my other computers.

EDIT: ok got the free version to work, only to discover it does not support vst plugins, and there is no demo for the full version, what an odd way to go for presonus :P

did you try reseting your blacklist manually?

this is the only info i found, this is for v3 but maybe it is the same in 4:

Yeah, that's right, the free version doesn't have VST support, but according to PreSonus, the demoversion of the Professional version should have it, at least if you look this page:

https://support.presonus.com/hc/en-us/a ... ne-4-Demo-

Anyway, yes, I have resetted the blacklist, several times actually. The outcome is always the same. Studio One starts up, cannot scan the plugin, puts it in the blacklist.

Just tested in Reason now, and it works there as well, and I just remembered that I still have Studio One v3 installed, so I tested it in there, works perfectly. So it seems to be Studio One v4 only. The plugin scanning procedure was changed between v3 and v4 in Studio One, so there seem to be some incompatibility there.

I know by experience that trying to raise support cases with PreSonus is like staring into a wall and hope for something to move, so I will leave it at this for the moment. The plugin seem to work in all other DAWs except Studio One v4, and it seem to be a Studio One problem more than a plugin problem in this case.

following your link i managed to find that yes it is possible to download a full demo, but again trying to load it crashes my system :roll: i even deleted all my vst plugins to make sure it isn't one of them, alas, still crashing. i will try on the other pc where the prime version worked in a bit.

and yeah about their support, a bit horrible, i was playing with it a bit when they were on v3 and dropped it mostly because of that back then.

thanks for understanding, i'll let you know if i uncover any clues. i tend to agree with your thoughts that it is probably an issue with them, but i would like to at least try to investigate more.

just to mention we tested on tons of daws across a number of windows versions, but due to the nature of things something might have slipped, if anyone finds something i am more than willing to take a look and try to solve.
