Hey,

Just ranting, but I still love Dune 1 VST too much. For some reason more than Dune 2 and 3. Probably because I'm more used to the GUI of Dune 1.

Anyone else in the same boat?

I used to be in the same boat, but now I'm in a Super Star Destroyer.

I agree that there's something quite special about Dune 1. Possibly the most versatile and best sounding single page synth around, and really light on CPU.
Would be nice if Synapse set it free, seeing as Dune 2 and up aren't backwards compatible. I wonder if anyone would actually buy Dune 1 at its current price ($99 iirc)

I bought v1 and still really like it. Was never tempted by the newer versions.
I'm a cloud and I'm proud.

I haven't used Dune 1 since Dune 2 was released and haven't used Dune 2 since Dune 3 was released. Natural progression.... :shrug:

Dune CM can still be purchased for the price of a single Computer Music Magazine and you get 70 more plugins as well........ :tu:

There's zero reason to do so IMO. Dune 2 > Dune 1, and Dune 3 > both. Definitely always a progression.

Who knows, maybe Dune 4 will please me enough to finally keep it. :D Or maybe Richard develops an entirely new synth.

I love Dune II... For some reason, I prefer the sounds I get from it.

To be honest I'd rather he work on something new than work on Dune any further but who knows what the future holds.

You should be able to get the same sounds with Dune 3. All my Dune 2 patches sound the same in Dune 3. :shrug:

everyone is slightly different. i own 2 and 3 and use 3 because i bought it, but 2 works best for laptop situations, and i think the extra filter is clunky. i totally get the version 1 lovers. one of the best sounding vsts i've heard. juicy.

What does dune 1 have, which dune 2 doesn't have?

I always felt that dune 1 sounded very thin, dune 2 sounds more like a hardware synth

I'm sure I should! I'm a lot more familliar with D2 but I do own D3 (I just need more time on it). :)
