Added some lag in the envelope attack with vco modulations.
Slightly calibrated cross mod. This is fix now. Sorry for the issues...

It's the usual thing with TAL synths, wait 2-3 months before they become stable in sound and features :)

I know it seems like I was complaining haha. I'm just impressed with how on it he's been with updates.

For me it's between complaining and being happy about new features :)

I've already started and partly finished several tracks with the synth, and now he changed the sound again. Need to check with the new version or if I stay at the old version to render the pre-masters...

And I know it happened before with Tal-Mod, but just couldn't leave my hands from it, sounds soooo goood.

The quality/price ratio of TAL's plugins is astounding. One of the few devs I buy from every single time.

This is very impressive.

Was hoping for an easier ride on the CPU, but it is obviously fairly involved. Perhaps it's the dual layers (duh)

Tal synths are pretty stable from the beginning with no major issues :tu:
Still waiting for cherry audio to fix the osc sync aliasing issue in ca 2600, 3 months after it's release :lol:

I did not mean stable in running but stable in sound or features.
Stable in this regard means, the sound doesn't change afterwards (when loading the same project file).

PS.: I've completely skipped the Cherry stuff, fortunately J-8 came out then and I wasn't interested anymore.

It seems that a low cpu mode will be added as there's a new field saved with the presets called 'lowcpumode' (just speculating :oops: )

Under the demos tab, you can find an A/B comparison between Patrick's Jupiter and the J-8.
This comparison really is impressive! Especially how exact the osc and filter are. I only noticed a attenuation on the middle frequencies in the filter of tal j8, while the original stays more constant in volume while the filter sweep. Like a small eq peak bump in the upper mids.

As people are talking about updates, can I ask whether these vst's update themselves or can be updated within the program? Or do I have to check the website and download myself?
