What I'm thinking lately is that the Massive Modular sold much enough and it's time to release the one even though it hasn't reached 512 DL.
So it won't be long, but currently the Bazille skin is the prior task to get done.

Anyway I don't want to charge customers extra bucks 'cause it feels to me kinda betrayal for those who wait for the skin for like 2 years.
Would gladly donate to you via PayPal for that 512 DL skin :)

I received a link for new plugmon skin with racked FX.
iOS iPad has issues as I'm abroad ATM.
Can't wait to download this and the SD Version.
The look is smooth and the racked FX are spectacular...

Thanks Plugmon.

Thanks all the people. I didn't expect Massive Modular could reach this far; 512 Downloads.

The racked FX is heaven!! EQ1 & 2 at the same time, Rev1 & 2 at the same time....U-he should do this, too. :love:

Looking back, however, it seems to me that too many colors and elements put into it. When Zebra 3 is released, I'm gonna set out for the new, the more sophisticated skin.

Massive-like Mod System in Zebra²

Post Fri Sep 15, 2017 2:31 am

I've tested both musik-fabrik and musik-fabrik SD (is there any difference ?) and would make a single remark… I think the info pane lacks readability, for two reasons:
  • the text seems to lack luminosity and is strongly degraded
  • some characters, especially 'f', have their upper part mangled
look at the picture below, it's what I see on my screen when Zebra is set to 100% with a neutral gamma: please compare the first 'f' of 'effect' with the 'f' of 'patch format'.

This one has now become my default Zebra theme (after previously having your 'Massive Iceage' as the default for months)

Does this happen with other skins too - For some reason I thought skins only altered the look & positions of the buttons & panels etc. rather than text in dialogue boxes

Apologies should've clarified - Does this happen with other non-plugmon skins ? And if so are you running Windows by any chance ?

I haven't got any other skin, except the u-he's original — and I'm running OSX on a 27'' iMac…

You likely don't have font anti-aliasing enabled in Zebra's Preferences. So enable it.

Can you buy the new skin on its own?
I really have no need for patches and as beautiful as the skin is, $25 seems a lot of money for a skin.
Cheers

Bummer. It's not a problem here on Windows - those fonts are nice and sharp.

mmmm strange behaviour. Not on my OSX environment, either.

One thing I can say is that this part is a text based element, where the font renderings could be affected by system font settings, or even by DAW. I cannot identify it clearly.
Sometimes just re-opening the GUI fixes some graphic issues like this.

Massive Modular is not a "Skin & Preset bundle", but is a "skin with bonus presets". I mean, even without patches, I would sell it for $25.
I consider it not just a skin, since it brings not only aesthetic changes but also functional changes like the new modulation system, the piano roll sequencer...Have you tried the demo version? I bet you can't stop yourself once you try it 8) 8)
