So many wonderful sounds. 'Discrete Drone Layer' especially is so lovely.

It sounds great- on of the better Arturia synths I think- I love the 'Synthesis' view- that should now be an option for every instrument ;-)

Woa! Didn't expect it to be released so soon. Just spent five minutes with the demo and....off to purchase now.

And it's f**king MPE compatible :o
That's new for VCollection synths.
Beautiful.

I now see presets for it in Analog Lab after I updated it.

None in the lighter Intro version, though it does show the SQ80 in the synth list.

This sounds really cool. It sounds way better than SQ8L at least with presets. I never really bothered trying to program SQ8L because the I only like a couple presets. I should do a real comparison though using jbridge.

You won't because they don't just "grey" the option out in demo mode, they remove it so it isn't there. It seems import = purchase ;)

Variable, but kinda high.. not so far off OB-XA V. Just going by the Cubase meter ( ... ) it sometimes seems like unison eats a tiny bit more CPU than the equivalent polyphony in regular mode. At least it's variable polyphonic unison though ;) 16 note max.

Uffff, so that's definitely way too much compared to SQ8L...

God this sounds marvellous, even with just one oscillator.

Not light, close to Repro territory for me. Playing a 6 voice chord with 3 oscillators and fx disabled has FL Studio showing 18% in the CPU meter for me, i7 6400k @4ghz. Same with Repro (except with 2 osc) and multicore on is 20%.

Big plus for me is they've ditched that horrible pop-up GUI system for modulations and effects etc. Now it's just a tab that switches the interface.

Gosh that's definitely too much. What the hell are they doing in that code...

I just buy a strong enough CPU to handle anything. 5950x. Much better investment than more kinda-slightly-different-than-what-I-already-have plugins, if you have to choose between the two.
