- the standalone version (which at least IS installed) dont fit on the screen no matter which resolution I choose, that means the top 2 or three menue lines could just not be seen, so, just useless

- I dont even know IF the vst is installed (I have chosen vst 2 64 bit) cause it is in none of the pathes mentioned in the user manual (not in Program Files\Steinberg\VSTPlugins\Vaporizer2 not in Program Files (x86)\Steinberg\VSTPlugins\Vaporizer2)
Is this solved in version 2.2 ? I dont want to download and have that mess again if its not been confirmed to be solved.

Hello, for the best of my knowledge the first issue is solved. But I dont have a clue for the second one. Maybe it is due to write permissions for folders. Have you tried to run the installer as admin?

Usually I ever do this, but I will give it a try if at least I can run the standalone version to see if I could do anything with it at all.

One question to the installation: are the factory presets included or do I have to download them in the separate link ?

They are included and can be selected / unselected during installation. But there are more free presets and wavetables downloadable on the webpage.

150 presets only with 2.2 update?

even parawave audio rapid has 1000 presets as factory....

you should provide more factory sounds....

demo sounds are really tiny, absolutely no thickness in sounds...sounds like 80s-90s

really dissapointed. plus it looks like serum but there is thousands of presets for serum but nothing for this synth...

not impressed at all, looks like one guy company, will not last long

Can you reorder and choose more effects on one bus? From the mod matrix it doesn't appear that I can send an MSEG to a distortion on a particular bus. The FX send on the matrix should probably only show enabled effects.
Send to FX1.EQ[1].
Send to FX1.EQ[2]

Still playing around with it but missing those features already.

This is internally prepared. Only the UI part is missing and it is on top of the backlog for next update.

YOU ARE AN ANGEL. Some of these presets are gorgeous. I can already tell this is going to be a supremely valuable purchase for me.

There are additional 650+ free presets linked in the download section on the website.

Sorry to hear that you don’t like it. If you have purchased a license, PM me in case you want to get a refund.

Do you have an AVX machine? If not, you need to use the SSE version.

A few other items from a semi-frequent oscer please!:
1. Max pitch modulation should be about 6 octaves (I think that's enough) This is for percussive emphasis and a huge part of attackiness. Right now its only like 13 semitones which is not nearly enough.
2. Ability to disable keytrack, and set pitch for the 3 oscs.

These probably seem like not really necessary, but they are very helpful for sound design as example in these two videos (use link, youtube embedding doesn't start at right time):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPRBIBl5--w&t=1m (kick, pitch env example)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qi5fbezyzio&t=2m20s (cymbals/hi hats manual pitch example)

outside of basic drum patches, they would be incredible features for sound design.
