I think everything imaginable is already out there, but spread across different synths. Some have this, others that...
There are a few that are very complete, but I don't like them.

So, you already have a concept and now you are hoping that people here will list exactly those features that you already happen to have for your synth, right? 8)

Even if you give away a bit, it might make more sense to present your ideas and ask people what they think of them...

No. 1 requirement MPE compatible and should be able to morph between presets.
It should be able to do concatenative synthesis.

And on top of the ice, direct imagination to sound interface...; - )

I would like to know if there are things you miss or could be better among the synths today. Is there any concept or features you think should be out there but is missing?
Maybe this question is improper in this forum? I don’t know. Any suggestions where I else should turn with a question like this?
Nope.

Hmmmmm. Maybe I'est answereth too hastily:

I have yet to see a tube-powered soft syth - perhaps a decktop hardware syth made of glowy tubes controlled by a soft-sith intraface using shark-based DSP ferm curds - that might sells to the players who have outgrowing their monosiths.

Ok, that's enough of me being silly.

Suggestion: if you've been working on something, what about showing us all what you got (maybe with audio examples if you're afraid of someone stealing your IP?)

Make sure any synth you make responds to release velocity.

There - you have at least one opinion now.

Lol -

Ok, I'm going to hit you with a thoroughly selfish idea that others here might like to see, too:

A stand-alone wavetable creator that uses several different methods to create said wavetables - to be used in a number of different soft synths (and hardware synths, too - like Waldorf's Blofeld)

I dream of one that emulates the sound of cottonwood fluffs landing on a bed of silk: the softest synth.

Most of the users are not designers,not even music producers - just enthusiasts and they will decide is it or isn't good enough to buy it - actually demands are up in the sky these days and if you are not super programmer and i guess there just a few of them,probably better not to compare functionality to already existing ones but to make something new with fresh juicy sound :)

That's not going to be as soft as my silent sulfurous emissions gently permeating your nasal cavities.

See, that’s where you’re wrong. Cheeks have minimal impact on tone. It’s all about sphincter tension and length and girth of the colon, or more specifically, the rectal-colon cavity. Having the right gut flora can actually have surprising influence on the sustain of the sounds, and that can help with tonal variety.
