Completely understand the hesitation. :)

€99 isn't an intro price, that's the final asking price for 1.0 and I'm not planning on raising it anytime soon. It's likely that for major version bumps (i.e. 2.0) I will, but 2.0 isn't going to happen soon or suddenly, it'll happen incrementally.

Plan from here out is to do bugfix point releases as issues crop up, and do incremental releases (i.e. 1.1) every few months, which will have feature additions and deeper development work. Plan right now is to have 1.1 out in January, with a primary focus on CPU optimisation work and AudioUnit support, in addition to a few new features (few workflow improvements, pre/post filter routable sub osc, among other plans).

I think I have a Cadmium deficiency! :hihi:

Tried the Demo and it 'poof!' crashes Reaper, crashes Mulab and in VSTHost no picture or sound, with a long list of exceptions! :(

Whoa! Does the crash happen immediately when adding Cadmium, or does it happen when opening the UI?
Yea, also crashes Cubase 9.5 when opening.

Visuals and UX will get updated in time but will probably keep the flattish aesthetic.
I don’t mind the flat type of look, but it would be cool to maybe have a choice of a few different sets of colors for the display.

Planned, will land early 2019. Going to start with light/dark scheme and go from there.

Right after Creative Intent Tantrum ....

I’ll have to demo against Bazille in any case....
How does this compare to Bazille?

Instacrash when opening the plug (32 bit version) in Live 9 too. Brief glimpse of an empty white window, then crashes to desktop.

I prefer Cadmium to Bazille. They are very different synths though, and I happen to like apples more than oranges.

Just released 1.0.3, which fixes a bug with some NVidia GPUs where Cadmium would crash right when opening the UI. In addition, blank parameter labels in Maschine are fixed, and also a bug where Cubase sessions with at least one Cadmium instance would crash on load. Existing customers can always download the current version from their purchase confirmation email, and everybody else can grab the new demo builds from LHIaudio.com.

This one took a little longer to get out because I've been working hard on 1.1 in parallel. Have already managed some CPU usage reductions without impacting the sound, and through spending some more quality time with my performance measurement tools I'm quite confident I can reduce the load further. I may potentially be able to multi-thread the audio engine for even better CPU utilisation.

In addition, 1.1 will also (finally!) have AudioUnit support, LFO BPM sync, and an additional pre/post filter routable sub oscillator, which will be particularly useful in patches which make heavy use of filter FM but need some additional low-end. Aiming to have 1.1 out by mid-January.

How’s the development of this excellent synth coming along?

looks & sounds interesting. but no AU yet. hope development is in fact coming along...
always one plugin short of perfection...
