You are aware that there is already a VSTI named One (http://www.fabfilter.com/products/one.php) on the market, are you?

Lucky ours is called "kHs ONE" then. ;)
Honestly I hadn't noticed, and there seems to be more than that is called just "One", and a couple that are closeby. I hope and believe that really won't be a problem.

Which patches? I've had it peak at 10% which is pretty average. I run at a 5ms 256sample buffer, if I increase that to say 10ms, it drops down to around 6%.

Bought One today (qmixmail). It's a great synth. Keep up the good work!

Downloaded the demo. First impression upon loading the plugin: I love the visual appearance! Straightforward, elegant design is always a huge win in my book. The color choices are incredibly easy on the eyes, very visually appealing, and yet still allow you to quickly find what you're looking for. The subtle arrows indicating signal flow path are also a very welcome touch. The design makes it very easy to start working with it right away, without having to "learn" some funky new interface. I can't express how incredibly well designed I feel the UI is - the subtle complete/broken lines to indicate which elements work together or are separate.. it's clear you all put a lot of thought into how this is laid out.

And then the sound.. excellent! While it's been said that there is nothing "revolutionary" about kHs ONE, and I would agree there aren't any ground-breaking new synthesis techniques, the sound that it creates is both inspiring and rich. It is reminiscent of the Nord approach - do something simple, but do it excellently, and do it with style. And with the summer intro discount, I bought it. And laughed at the authorization sound that made me feel like I was back on my old NES.

But my thoughts may be a bit biased - at $49, I feel like I just robbed a music shop at gunpoint. And it feels great! Thanks for a great deal on what I suspect will become one of my go-to synths for straightforward, quality sound design. :)

Thank you st0w! It's really heartwarming to hear that people notice the efforts we put into making kHs ONE! You nailed a lot of things that we've aimed to make people feel about it when they use it, so we're very happy that's something we've succeeded in.

In general we're really happy about all the great feedback we've gotten from our users. It's what keeps us going. :)

Yeah it's a great little synth.

Maybe it isn't revolutionary but it has a logic layout and this will become my go-to subtractive synth.

The manual is a great addition too.

This is a very good synth to learn about subtractive synthesis.

Sounds pretty good, cleaner than Dune, which I also tested today and kind of disappointed me. The sound character is quite different of course. Basically I am looking for a synth that finally has no noise on chords in the 5th octave upwards. Some synths sound great, even bombastic at first, but on good headphones one can usually detect some ugly noise.
The design is also nice, no tiny letters to decipher...

The only thing that takes some getting used to is the layout of the center panel between the oscillators and the effects panels...

It's definitely on my short list :)

Glad to hear it! Tell us if anything is unclear and needs explaining. :)

Confusing name, people will associate it with Apogee ONE and vice versa. Your SEO will be bad and so on.

Why are there no demo tunes on your site? The player is there, but empty...

As far as the synth itself, everything is pretty clear, will do more thorough testing later this week. Living in a piigs country, I will have to wait till the next promotion, anyway 8) :roll:

There are a couple of other products also called something with "one", like FabFilter One. Haven't actually seen Apogee One come up before though. :) The actual product name is "kHs ONE", but people may miss the "kHs" part. Either way, you're right that the name is a bit generic which may or may not have an effect, but at this point it's not going to change and I guess we'll have to live with it. :)
