The only thing I don't like from these screenshots is the weird background pattern in the effects section. A minor thing of course and maybe it's just me. I also don't like the background pattern used in Falcon.

Really love the new themes! Great job :)
Would be very handy if you could implement some kind of Favorites functionality to the synth also.

Great news I look forwrads to checking it out. RAPID is excellent. For the next update maybe note down one of the first things to improve as being the somewhat "cold" filter.

Okay. I love this update. 1 bug i found; when i choose a fx unit, i can't deselct this by pressing the "---" when i want to remove the fx.

Other then that; seems a very stable build with lovely graphics

I can confirm it too, in the Effects section.

Hmmm...i would rather have them to add different filter types. I am kinda fond of that direct and "cold" filter they use right now...

Yes. I would welcome a really "juicy" analog LP/BP/HP filter, along the lines of the Diva filters for example, as an addition to the current filters set.

Thanks for all the feedback so far. Keep reporting your experience.

Yes, that one slipped through. It was introduced during another fix. Really annoying. But it is already fixed, we just have to wait a bit before pushing a new version. Let's see if there are other ones.

At MacOS / Logic users here, can someone confirm that the current plugin size is not restored when reopening the plugin? I'm not sure if this is specific to a certain Logic version (sandbox madness), or a general one.

The next update 1.6.0. is reserved for the new effects (MB-Saturator, Glitch, ...).

It's hard to grasp request for "Juicy", "Analog", "Warm" filters, since it's very subjective. You can probably already replicate it by just using the normal filter plus an additional insert filter e.g. by using different resonances at different cutoff frequencies. Or putting the insert with Tube Distortion/Exciter before the filter.
Just saying, the payoff to develop new ones is a bit low to justify it. There are higher priorities, that will actually introduce new features.

Sure additional responses/coding maybe to the existing filter, options are good. I often have to work a little harder to get the textures I am after with the existing filter. Addition of drive/Saturation etc. Whatever makes a filter character different in some nice way. The filter is what I struggle with most personally. I have that treble control at 0 always.. more of that treble the colder it seems to get. Or I have to change the sound itself a bit to get extra grit.

Maybe there could be some intentionally nasty lo fi/undersampled or not oversampled responses/coding for the filter.

But the synth itself, powerful and great and is in every track I make.

As far as pay off I would have thought it would be a very critical part of any synths sound and feature set, but what do I know ? Only what I would like myself.

Yes, when reopened, size is restored to 100%. The previously selected skin is restored correctly.
