Thanks! :-)

Scaling and 16 note polyphony shouldn't be too hard to do. I've put it on my list!
wanted to ask for a slightly bigger UI as well. on a 1440P screen it is all quite small. Maybe a 150 and 200 % addition ;)

Still a big fan of Drumatic4. Use it in almost all my projects. Invader sounds really nice.

I bought a license yesterday, a larger UI is always welcome, and I have a 1600p (3840x1600). Going for a 2160p (5120×2160), hopefully, during the year.

I'd agree with those requesting a slightly larger GUI. I think a 125% option would be perfect for my screen. A 4k screen would likely require something larger.

I'd like to see a built in MIDI Learn option. Can use the DAW, but cleaner when the plugin does it.

Otherwise, no bugs so far.

previous stuff was SE, nor sure if SE does VST, so I'm guessing he has a fairly new sdk license, which doesn't allow vst2

Well, SynthEdit is quite some time ago. :-) Drumatic 4 was iPlug1, Invader is iPlug2 (after using the VST3 SDK for XPressor)

You're right about the license. I cannot release VST2 anymore.

Wow, as simple as it looks at first glance, it sounds excellent to me, lively and with quite some bottom :tu:

Just a few things that might be improved in my view:
- The semitone detuning of the oscillators, i.e. in precise semitones when using the mouse wheel.
- Below 11 o'clock I don't really hear a difference whether the HP filter is on or off.
- When in 1-voice mode, the velocity does not seem to have any effect on follow-up notes.
- Is there no legato mono mode?
- When the browser is open, it took me some time to figure out how to close it.

Thanks for this beta bargain. I tried the demo and purchased a license. Like others have mentioned, it sounds great with a nice UI.

Ah, that's the developer behind the once famous Drumatic, I had not realized that when on their site because of the demo version :)

I think another color for the displays would be better, like, orange or green instead of the light purple.
And maybe a consistent mode for those parameters, currently some have a drop-down menu, others react to the scroll wheel.
