Great to see developers making MPE instruments in MAX now, the future is bright for MPE and Live. This is just 25E so tempting....

I think this looks great! I bought a license and hope to try it out this weekend.

indeed great! ableton live 11 suite, is already an experimental playground, also by 'third party' M4L devices (the same developer of EMIT etc. the nature devices), de spectral effects, etc. etc.

and now this!

I think getting he price right helps a lot, we all like a new toy every now and again and the 25E mark is guilt free as far as I am concerned!

The demo sounds are nice but I found with Superberry it was a bit frustrating that none of them were available as presets (indeed it still has none). Is this the case also with this one? I'm not wholley dependent on presets but when I hear great songs like those being programmed I want to see how they are put together.

I agree, needs presets for all the Fors synths, even if you don't use them, its really needed to see how the synths work

I like the fact that there are no presets, personally. It encourages a more exploratory use of the synths.

As for Chiral, I'm not as in love with it as I am with Superberry or Doublet, probably because I've never been a fan of the west coast synthesis style of waveshaping a basic sine wave, at least not without the corresponding LPG to tame it.

Each of their synths is unique in both good and bad ways, not to say I don't like them a lot, but Chiral hasn't hit that sweet spot for me quite yet.

I have been using it and quite enjoy it. For me, it's an entry point into Fors. Superberry and Doublet are next on my list.

Maybe make a MAX4LIVE thread only where only MAX4LIVE things gets posted, so this forums doens't get cluttered. Not everyone have Live you know.

well- it has some super-powers :)
Chiral synth by Fors can save its twisted wavetables on the run-
in various formats.

hmmm, not sure what holographic synthesizer means in terms of sound, but it reminds me of Generate.
