I hate to sound cynical, but it's pretty clear that VAZ is mostly dead. There was a time I recommended it every chance I got, but to be honest, there are too many issues with it that have been ignored over the years. Sad really, because I think if a 64 bit version that had an updated UI and preset system, were to be released, it would rule. I think too many people are just put off by that 1992 UI. It really is a gem though. RIP VAZ.

I discovered a new modular from Softube going for $75 and it looks real! Not sure if its as functional as VAZ but there are some YouTube vids available. www.softube.com

Now that the Softube Modular has been released I wanted to bring up this topic once more. I would really love to see Vaz Molular in a 64-bit version. Are the tools needed to make this happen super super expensive or might a Kickstarter campaign from users perhaps manage to raise enough funds to make this viable?

Also... the upside of Brexit perhaps means that Madgav might be able to start up sales once more?

Or am I just as they say, beating a dead dog?

Sorry... just speaking as someone who really loves his Vaz Synths. :oops:

I'm afraid you are right with this.. :(

Hard to believe its been around for 20 years now! VAZ Mod wouldn't need the gaudy visual of Softube just something with a slightly more realistic look and some more functions that would come with 64-bit. I prefer its cleaner easy to use platform. Sorry to see it go the way of Seer Systems Reality. I popped $400 for that only to have them abandon it a couple years later. :dog:

Can't say, that's for developers. Maybe a holoroom full of modules. 8)

Crowd funding isn't a bad idea. For me Vaz Modular is the holy grail of my big studio. In my opinion Vaz is still lightyears ahead of the soft synth competition in reproducing vintage synth sounds. Yamaha CS 80, ARPs, Moogs, Prophet, Oberheim, even the mighty Yamaha GX 1.... Wow did a mention the smooth strings and choirs of the Roland VP-330? Vaz always delivers analog smoothness and bite! I've made sounds that people can't believe is software.

I have been in contact with Martin during the years, always very helpful and kind. I would be glad to donate a large amount of money to be able to use Vaz even in the future! I really can't be without it! Let's say 64 bit and as a bonus Mac AU :)

Proud and lucky Vaz Modular owner for many, many years,

agree with Erik or even sell the project or make it open source if Mad is not interested in Vaz anymore

great piece of software. I also hope it doesn't go down the drain.

So.. I'm still enjoying the sound of Vaz in 2018 (with Jbridge, works great with StudioOne. And no windows 128 bit on the horizon yet.. That kinda makes Vaz future proof for us :-) Hope that everything is alright with you Martin and thank you for your amazing synth!
