Hi Gary 8D,
I remember Bini- was it? the delay, or am I mixed up?
Now there is a much better trigger system, which uses a codebox Ruby.
This has timing about as good as MIDI, CPU dependant.
It leaks RAM if dynamic in 3081(last stable version)-
but the upcoming stuff just smashes it-
including using 1/4 the cpu for Ruby trigger operations(no leaks).
So hang me for letting a cat out of the bag,
it's beneficial I hope RDSP.
It's like the mythological tick1000...
but it's better to use less for sequencers and such and not poll streams

Both SIDizer and Oresus were the first came to mind, hopefully they will be updated.

to Gary--
Here is a seq I built using this Ruby trigger system, compiled in the nu Alpha->

That's what kind of killed synthmaker for me; it should have been dead simple to knock up generative sequencer-like things etc but the timing was always slave to windows interrupts and was all over the place. I know you can kludge it using audio paths instead but was always fiddly and, well, just seemed a missed opportunity.

Good question, I don't know. I lost interest shortly after the transition to FlowStone. I think I paid for one update and then let it lapse.
I never migrated, the pricing scheme was beyond what I was prepared to pay (and I had recently got Reaktor so... :)) And closing the old forums was a bad move, so much experience lost.

Yeah, Bini was me, I still use it sometimes. :) It was simply a couple of delays feeding back into themselves to make all manner of unholy noises, taking advantage of SMs one sample latency.

The Ruby stuff sounds intriguing, I guess I'm going to have to check it out now... :)

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but SynthEdit currently has mature 32-bit support (Windows VST2), 64-bit (Windows VST3) support in beta, and Mac (Audio Unit) support in Alpha.
i still have an old license for synthedit. is the MAC version available somewhere?

It's coming along.
No release dates.
The alpha has not been made available to testers,
but AdamTrance has it and is turning up all the binary conniptions.
His Viper will be among the first 64-bit releases.
We need to give a round of applause to MyCo!

If any other specific questions, I think I can answer. DSPR are reasonably transparent these days.
