There's still room for performance improvement, but I'll bring it to you in this state.
I've got to say, I'm massively impressed with this synth and also your approach as developer. I get that a KVR OSC contest is a great opportunity to obtain a load of beta testing in one single month, but I think if it was me, I would've had a breakdown and thrown a strop by now trying to deal with implementing so many changes in such a short period of time. I'm assuming you also have other stuff to do on a day-to-day basis as well, so every credit to you. :clap:

I'm looking forward to having a play with the update. Cheers! :tu:

Oh thanks for the tip, I will check my track with the new version!
Let us know if you hear any difference with the legato feel please. It might be just "me", but I did feel it was better. Perhaps the dev could say whether he thinks his "fix" could affect the legato behaviour?

Sometimes there is a problem with the envelope and it makes a strange release.
It has been corrected.
So the latest version is v2.0.6.
Awesome!
Envelope decay/release works more smoothly now without unexpected noise on key release :tu:

It doesn't feel _very_ different but maybe slightly smoother? I didn't spend a lot of time making comparisons, just listening back to bounces from the two versions.

I think "smoother" is probably right. When the first note overlaps the second by a reasonable amount, the transition is much smoother! It means you have better control over the way the legato feels.

1x Ableton Gate
2x Flux:: Bitter Sweet

It's really encouraging to be told that :)


A little more about envelope bugs:
Bugs sometimes sound that should not be heard when the key is released.
Sometimes it was almost silent and sometimes it became clear.
This was a bug specific to v2.0.5.

Here's my submission. Lith is pretty darn sweet. I'll make my track downloadable closer to the deadline just in case I hate it before then.

Reaper
40 Liths, all from init
Lots of Leveling Tool, ReaEq, and GClip, some Tal Reverb 4 and NastyDLA, a Rough Rider 2, a DragonFly Reverb, a stack of Unlimited, a Wider and a Stereo Tool.

Just a touch of EQ and a tickle of compression

https://soundcloud.com/oorlab/oorlab-sh ... air-osc129

14 instances of Lith (the first version) , usage of native MonoDelay, freeware Tal Reverb 2-64, mastered with Cubase Elements 8 native plugins EQ, Limiter and Compression.
Downloadable.
I specially liked the FX/ Machine and FX/ Scratch sounds - giving a sort of manipulable radio shortwave sound.

bass with saturator
Sounding very fresh & upbeat. What is a saturator and what does it do to a bass?

It clips the signal to make it warmer
