PLease stop posting your ridiculous you tube videos ,it is common knowledge for everyone who has the slightest interest in analog signals and dsp in general .
Do you really think we are high school teenagers that are WOOWWED by that ?
Sorry but dont understand that tone of communication we are trying to be gentle and decent as much as possible. We pasted video as communication helper to better express what we mean and are talking about.

We cannot know what kind of experiences and knowledge different people have, for people who are deep in problematics or have electrotechnical education these things are absolute basics and trivial things. For others they might be very interesting, scientifically mysterious and instructive. We didn't made this video only for marketing but firstly for educational purposes. Different people have different background.

Many people shared video at social networks with many likes and positive comments, many were thankful for it, here is just one proof / screenshot from one popular synthesizer FB group:

It's funny how they try to promote this 'synth' like it's the best thing since sliced bread, but it took them over a week to even sell 100 copies. If it's really as good as they pretend it to be then it would sell like crazy.

I'm quite sure when U-He releases a new synth they sell 100 copies in less than an hour.

I really would like to see some names of those 99.5% synths that sound 'sterile, digital, cold, boring, robotic, uniformly, numb and sharp' according to Eplex7.
U-He makes perfect plug-ins they fully deserve it! Diva is fantastic synth and many others.

We are not presenting our synths as best thing. Surely not (also because best does not exist, it is always subjective). As we wrote in next discussion evrybody prefers something different while some people prefer soft and gentle analogs others are searching for dirty gritty detuned Russian synths like Polivoks, it depends lot on genre same like with guitars you need something different for pop, folk, jazz and different for heavy metal. There are many genres of electronic music.

When we wanted to produce electronic music with warm 80s feeling 4 years ago (something like Nero, CHVRCHES, or more dirty underground sound like Terrence Fixmer, Dj Hell, Ural 13 diktators, Zombie Nation or Gritty German electro) we realized that in song/mix most of VSTs sounds sterile and digital, that is why we decided to develope this style of dirty warm synth.

Of course we will not mention those sterile sounding synths that didnt meet our needs, because it may be rude/dishonest, I can mention that Sonicprojects OP-X was closest to that desired sound, we tried 70+ synths but probably not all at the market of course.

Of course if synth sound digital, sterile, numb doesnt necessary mean that it is bad! Many music styles like trance, psytrance/darkpsy/hitech/minimal and others needs those clean sterile synths for precise crystal clear sound! To mention some synths sounds sterile or numb is not critics!

Regarding number of sales, while we are sure bestselers are one of best quality products at the market we know that there are many many factors - marketing, prejudices, quality of sales / business team, brand, how many years company is at the market, how big newsletter/social media pages they have etc etc.

Few examples from real world, you surely know that pop/hip-hop stars with very basic music usually 3 notes and easy lyrics are selling 1000x more than talented underground artists, jazz players or geniuses like Shpongle, Kruder and Dorfmeister, some orchestral composers or so. Also Van Gogh sold only one painting during his life for few bucks :-( and had sad life.

Our ambition is not to be bestseller or get maximum, we are more boutique independent brand trying to bring something new/different and other to market to fill hole at some sub-segments.

PS: you will not send us your music asked many times? or you are not producer/musician at all? :)

More the other way around... Kids just want to play, and don’t take this too serious...

I like the word salad but I need more psy trance arguments please.

I haven't tested it but maybe 44.1 and 96 sound different. There are converter tradeoffs that happen as you go up and down in sampling rate, and there are different considerations for nyquist filter.

To me it is simple. 1. I have tried tons of freeware. 2. I have tried this. Conclusion: This offers me nothing new and sounds awful. Why would I part with money? All other arguments are academic.

Academic, yes nice definition. What are you most favourite clean/sweet sounding analog freeware vsts, which are your dirty/vintage/gritty (like polivoks) emulations?
and which are your favourite sterile / digital sounding (close to dsp hardware powered synths (motorola/sharc chips) vsts?

I have counted 125 freeware that I liked enough to keep in my vst2 folder. I have not included my romplers and physical modeling synths. I will now endeavour to count my vst3 synths. All of these sound better than yours. Some are gritty and others are clean. I like variety.

eh.... the sound of this IS interestingly dirty. it's a new take on the "slop" factor and that is appreciated. But, I'm always playing chords and cant with this mono. I feel they succeeded in making a "loose" old school analog flavor that I don't think I've heard before in freeware

You can do it without paying all that money. If your existing synths don't do it on their own, there are plenty of cheap and free effects to play with. Still, it's up to you if you have nothing better to spend your money on.

If I'm not lazy I'll post a sound demo later since I bought this. Sound demos on mono synths are kinda boring.

To the better analog emulation companies (not part of the 99.5% lol) like U-He, how much attention goes into parasitics in your emulations?

Is it based on SPICE modeling?

How did you tackle the problem of aliasing present in other virtual analog synths?
