If we use Zebra2 as the synth, are the synthesis capabilities of Zebrify also allowed? The instrument and effect use the same synthesis engine, so this seems like it would be a different case than the Repro-1/5 question.

Alternatively, if using both the instrument and effect is disallowed, can we just use the effect version? I have this plan that relies on using many independently-tuned comb filters in series (i.e. more than just a single instance of Zebra/Zebrify would allow), so I am trying to figure out whether this is workable within the rules of the competition.

I'm really excited that it's U-he month! This will be my 12th convective entry to OSC - what a way to celebrate, especially considering U-he's Triple Cheese was the synth that tempted me to start OSC in the first place.
I think I'm also going to go with Hive2, it's such a good balance of sound, workflow and performance (which is definitely useful for OSC).
This is going to be a busy month! :D

If I can find the time to enter, my dinosaur of a computer will only be able to handle Zebra 2... if only Satin was on sale ;)

Side note: Fathom of Seaweed Audio seems to have closed down business because his latest Release worth 3 months of work was ripped immediately and provided for free by a bunch of audio warez a***holes. His thread is locked now. I'm so sad.

Oh dang, that sucks. Luckily, I think, this thing needed a different concept anyway, if I remember correctly?! But that's just me, of course. The reality is, if a synth is truly brilliant, I don't think the cracks would destroy their business. Folks like U-He and DS surely have their troubles with those cracks, too, but they are so beloved and so awesome that likely enough sales keep coming. (I HOPE!!!)
Anyway, always a pity, my condolences.

So to warm up the debate, I'm really glad that cracks exist. They allowed me to start music when I was too young to spend any money on it. Then, I bought all my favourite software :party: and since I had "tried" them for years, I knew which was the best. I had the opportunity to really use (not with the trial version which are often not really usable) approximatively a thousand plugins :evil: and really know what I was into. I also tried many DAWS (FL Studio, Reaper, Cubase and Live) to be sure about the one I wanted to buy. I think this is more a problem of each person's ethic who decides (or not) to reward the guys behind the software they like.
I'd go even further : I really like the donation system (distocore, cheers!) : you like it you give, you're poor, you don't. I know I'm an idealist but I think if I ever make a plugin of my own (I'm currently in a master to learn to do it), I would do that.

Hope this kind of post is not forbidden here, since this is not the subject :hihi:

I don't think the Fathom synth is dead. I received an email from Everett will the following info.

The Fathom synth site is up, and he will continue to support the synth. The work on the next AVX release is continuing as well.

Certainly goes off topic a bit much, so I think we shouldn't continue talking about that here. Even on-topic stuff gets off the rails quickly... Maybe Peter can start a thread on that topic! ;) (I could surely contribute!)
