I was kind of hoping there would be plans to include additional filter models in the turbofilter module. Adding models of famous hardware filters seems like it's in line with the design philosophy of the other "turbo" modules. I really hope this is the case as the existing filter situation unnecessarily cripples what is otherwise a very impressive synth.
As written earlier , the filters are as simple as can get , probaly straight out of Robert Bristow-Johnson filter cookbook + some modifications .
Which is also the reason why they explode at high audio rate ,
Mturbofilter gives you basic building blocks but these are not adequate enough to construct a convincing analogue modelled filter .

For warm in my opinion check out ArtVera
at bottom of page

I would like to hear other examples of warm, analog and thick.

From the docs here:
https://www.meldaproduction.com/doc/MSoundFactory
MSoundFactory is a modular environment, so we can freely add new modules for various methods of sampling and synthesis. Here's a list of what is planned. When it will be implemented depends on the development time and priorities of course. Feel free to post other ideas to us at info@meldaproduction.com .

Features

Virtual keyboard in the bottom, collapsible
MIDI filtering for modules, most likely based on custom expressions
Optimal microtuning - detuning each note in a chord for optimal alignment of harmonics
Custom GUIs, based on images, lower priority
Instrument browser hash-tag search
Global instrument preset browser, which would allow access not just to the devices, but their own presets, all in one place
FX and 6-out edition of MSoundFactory

Modules

Per-voice equalizer
TurboFilter (planned as a dedicated plugin too)
Sampler & Multi-sampler (current samplers are for percussion only)
Spectral synthesizer, most likely image based
Granular synthesizer
Good info.

Some mentioned MSoundFactory for warm pads.

Although MSoundFactory can make warm pads, it would not be my first choice for them.
Having said that, it does excel at all kinds of interesting sounds.

Here is a plucked string sound with bell tone on the higher frequencies:

Is this warm?

I hope this thread descends into the Sideways wine tasting scene of silly descriptive terms.

How about this? Is this warm (it's a pad though)?

If me posting these is getting annoying, please let me know. I'm trying to triangulate here. I've only been making electronic music since November.

Sounds great! Looking forward to your patches for MSF! Have you explored Device creation at all, I wonder (as I did for Wags)?"

It is warmer than the first sample, but will like to have others give their opinion.
If not please offer your own sample music that you consider warm.

Your Plucked Strings sounds great.

Dirtgrain, your sound is smooth to my ears.

Oh ya, ditto to PatchAdamZ on that clip. I'm thinking reverb can make something warm, but again, I don't have firm grasp on the term.

MrMagoo, very nice. I have a ton of Pink Floyd records, but I can't place that one. Is it from Meddle? If that isn't warm, then I am so lost. Very cool.

Try with an EQ and/or a harmonizer (harmonic exciter)
