This is a strange, powerful, and majestic beast. At first it looks quite basic, but just click this icon just right of the disk icon (and above where it says "Demo Mode") for the main editor, where most of the action happens. Hope you have fun!

Very nice, I actually got this one during the Halloween sale, will be a good opportunity to learn it!

For users that have already used the trial, would it be possible for Mok/Traction to make a special case for OSC reset it? Could be an issue for someone.

Would be nice if there was a full licence for the winning entry! Not sure if that is generally the case for commercial synths? I know u-he has in the past.

I wonder how tricky percussion sounds with Waverazor will be, seems well suited for bass and lead sounds. Nice challenge for the start of 2019!

Can't use the trial? 30 days is enough to cover the OSC. Registering wasn't any more difficult than most - unless you use your music workstation is Offline?

The LE version should be enough to make a track, but would be limited to adjusting the Macro knobs of the Factory presets.

I guess that's me out then, can't be arsed installing something which lasts 30 days, cos I'm not gonna buy it and I'm surely not gonna win it :D
Good luck to all :tu:

It would be nice if they could offer a discount on purchase at the end of OSC (in case anyone likes it) or trade for using OSC song as demo songs on their website -- good marketing value.

The UI on this thing looks...uhhh...I mean it's visually kinda cool but they actually expect people to use this thing right?

Yes, eyesore. I'm reminded of that osc synth that was all green based on saw waves. Unreadable font, non-obvious clickable areas. Kind of a step back ux wise.

Looks like an interesting synth. I just took the first step and downloaded it. We'll see if I make it all the way to completed track before the end of the month.
