REQUEST RE: COMMERCIAL PLUGS

Hello -- as usual I am requesting that we be allowed to use commercial plugs this month. Anyone else want to jump in and officially petition BJ and Richard?

Thanks!
As always, I beg and pray that commercial plugins are allowed, too! :tu: :pray: :hail: :love: :hug:

I wouldn't mind hooking up OuterSpace for that one, hehehe, but I'm ok with either... this synth has plenty of quality that may not need too much mixing flattery. :shrug:

Really loving this synth so far! I also have a question: are stereo effects allowed (like voxengo stereo touch, ozone imager, etc.)?

Seems so - things like HAAS effects and such, just not modulating ones like chorus as per the rules.

Oh, yeah, I love using auburn studio's panagement! It has some challenges, but I'm totally used to it...
Here's a quick goof, testing the synth. All sounds from scratch and it's too easy to make them, too!

Anyway, just a goof, not a submission, of course! :ud:

No! Only Free and opensource software!
Just kidding ofc (not really kidding, but ok)

However, in the rare occasion that the chiefs wanna inspect a project, then what?

Is A1TriggerGate okay? http://www.alexhilton.net/A1AUDIO/index ... riggergate
It is a "free sequenced/gate audio plugin."

Looks fine - filter, gate, etc. nothing looks to be out of line

Cool taron. Maybe I’ll reach out to them directly. I hate drawing in stuff with the mouse.

I believe there is no "paid version." At the bottom of the page, it says:
OB-Xd Desktop has no restrictions and is free to use. Buy to support further development, thank you!
It's weird and I doubt many people will pay 39 euros for a synth that is identical to the free version. I think it would make more sense to make it donationware so that people can donate a bit (like 10 or 15 bucks) -- rather than nothing at all, which is probably the default behavior at the moment.
And what is there to develop further?

I'm having some trouble with the Learn function and my Akai controller. I can write automation manually to any of the synth parameters though. I can't seem to figure out a way to simply assign a controller to a synth parameter thru Logic. Also, some of the synth control labels seem off -- for instance LFO amount adjusted PWM amount. I'll put an image on the Slack - can't figure out how to get an image onto here.

Yeah, I have no idea how to work the "learn" button either... but in MuLab I simply assign the controller to the parameter. Works fine.

Using Bitwig 3.0.3 and the VST3 64bits Version - Plugin didn't read the automation.
Switched to VST2 64bits Version and voila, the automation works.
