Lack of multi layers, doesn't mean they are simple synths.
No but it means they are simpler and hence so will be their interfaces and workflow. Putting 8 synths into one plugin is obviously going to require some additional complexity but in the end switching between those 8 synths is a simple mouse click away..... :tu:

Sure they could tack on any number of "features" and they may well do since we don't know what the future holds for Dune 3. But I think a lot of the concerns about workflow that I've read could be eliminated by simply putting in a little time and effort.

After doing a few hundred patches Dune 3's workflow is lightning fast for me and I certainly don't possess any special skills not available to everyone........ :shrug:
Yes, and Dune 3 has also some tricks no other synth can do but there are also a few things which just are 10 times faster to do with a similar result in other synths. Nothing wrong with this but as usual there is place for a better and faster workflow.

What are a few things "which just are 10 times faster to do with a similar result in other synths" ?

For example I don't know how much faster or easier it would be to switch layers than a single mouse click unless they incorporated telekinesis. :shrug:

Like I said with experience Dune 3 has become lightning fast for me to program. Sure there is always room for improvement and if the Dune 3 team was as large as the team that did MassiveX then I'd say sure add every feature everyone wants but with Synapse being a two man team I'd rather precious development time be spent on things that enhance the range of sounds Dune 3 can make instead of things that might make it a tiny bit faster to program. :shrug:

But I hope everyone gets their wishes granted. No telling what the future holds for Dune 3 but for now it's tons of fun and dead easy to program and sounds absolutely awesome so I'll just enjoy it for what it is today.... :tu:

Name a complex synth with a more "friendly GUI". If you think Dune 3 is "unfriendly" you'd better steer well clear of VPS Avenger. :P
That's funny, I actually think Avenger has the best UI out of any synth I have used. It has a lot of "quality of life" features to make it easier and more intuitive to use.

Since I got Parawave Rapid my GAS for Dune 3 is gone. This is how to handle 8 Layers.

It's good to know. Unfortunately for me the sound isn't as good.

Use colors for different layers...

I doubt you are going to buy any synth! You just like to chat it seems ;)
Certainly not during this sales weekend. I like to pay regular prices instead of driving developers into poverty.
But I do intend to get a synth by the end of the year. I seldom buy anything, so I am comparing all options carefully before deciding.

That would be cool, yes, a rainbow synth thanks to all those layers.

Well, color can be used as a thin border somewhere to give a better feedback.
Btw: Rainbows have only 7 colors... :D

They can make one layer black or white, neither is a color :wink:

I like Avenger's approach for layers. You add as needed. So, you can tell immediately if this preset is simple or complex.
It's one developer as I remember! (Rapid also has one developer). So, "only two developers" for one synth is not an excuse!
Move your asses little bit SA developers :hihi: let us see what you can do about feedback visuals and overall friendly design in Dune 4. The sound is already great ;) and for the 100th times, find solution for putting the name of preset outside the holy screen and please make shortcut for "previous" and "next" preset without switching the tabs all the time if I want to stay in modulation matrix (for example) :mad:

Well, LuSH-101 has nice layers. But there's quite a GUI to manage them, separate presets per layer plus global mixer. Dune 3, by contrast, is very minimal in this regard and changing that would mean different design altogether.

when does the sale end today only?
Go to their site..... :bang:
I have been to the site. In the shop but all I see is Black Friday sale not any dates which is why i asked if it's friday only. Other companies will sometimes go to Dec. 3rd, or list the dates.
I can see in the shop: "Black Friday Sale, expires Cyber Monday!"
