I dragged the window to a secondary display that has a standard DPI, and this is what I see, which looks different from yours.

I was able to increase legibility even further by increasing the GUI scale factor. Wish I could offer a workaround for you.
It doesn't look that much different and you can't possibly think even that gui looks like it belongs in 2021 ?
I posted that to demonstrate that I'm not seeing the same visual artifacts, which look like missing pixels as if the GUI is being scaled in some way. To answer the second part of your question, yes, I do.

As much as i appreciate interface optimised for retina/hidpi interfaces, you can't simply ignore standard resolutions. It feels very poorly executed.
Fonts are usually a dead giveaway. Some fonts that work great and look amazing (most thin stuff) on retina display, simply falls apart on standard displays

We'll just have to agree to disagree then. I think it looks like someone's first SynthEdit project from 2005.

But that's just my opinion and I am a huge fan of Dmitry Sches. :shrug:

Is this a good alternative to Logic's Phat FX as a sort of all in one multi fx unit?

I guess alternative to Step FX more than Phat FX.
Probably?
Spet/phat fx is great tho

Just checked Tantra 2 and it is not multi-touch capable. :(
However when hitting randomize all buttons change at the same time as if it was multi-touch capable.
So there is hope. :)

Tried it today, the UI and colour choices are terrible, I don't know what they were thinking. The sequencers aren't as easy to manipulate as either Thorn or Tantra one, and the effects quality seemed so-so.

Hopefully that's coming soon.
