Ho ho-o-o, Back to the future with a futuristic synth from the past! It's a pity that this is mono, although with Kairatune you don't even want to bypass this restriction) But at the end of the month, it will be interesting to open the OSC #36 playlist and listen to how much the level of skill in this challenge has grown in 9 years!

OSC #36 was the first one synth challenge I ever submitted to (and my highest ever placing!) Will be fun to revisit this synth.

Is there a 64 bit version of this because Cubase 11 rejects all 32 bit plugins.

There is v1. 2. 4 VST2 64bit - this is the final version, so to speak. Versions 1.2.5 and 1.2.6 were dedicated to the release and debugging of Kairatune for Mac, and 1.2.7 introduced VST3 and nothing more. (from the official website)
P.S. The VST3 version gave an error during installation (who needs these exe files at all?! :x ) and then it didn't start in VSTHost. I will use the good old VST2 :tu:

I glanced at the first contest yesterday, and was surprised to discover, of all things, a cyberhalling! Man, there's a long way from Hallingdal to Houston!

Just getting started, so apologies if I missed something obvious: No env retrig / legato bypass?

In the oscillator section is a button called TRIG. That should do the trick. For reference, check the manual. https://futucraft.com/download/kairatun ... ce-manual/


Edit: or maybe it doesn't do the trick. The manual doesn't seem to be too clear about that. I can't try at the moment...

@schiing: I don't think you're missing anything.

What I do get ( in REAPER at least ) is 'phaser depth' detuning the oscillator. A lot. :lol: This bug does not occur in the 32-bit version.
