GUI is very cpu heavy but the modulations are interestingly designed and oscillator wave shapers appear quite powerful.

Tried it (vst2 x64) in latest fl studio; works like a charm. I like the UI and the sound (at 4x oversampling that is).
Handy little synth!
LFO is going WELL into the audio rate; 20000 Hz is no problem :clap: :clap: :clap:

Works for me in REAPER (x64, vst3 version) also. Interesting waveshaping (rare kind) synth. GUI is kinda cluttered, but very intuitive and muuuuch better than previous version (https://bedroomproducersblog.com/wp-con ... th-vst.jpg)

Is the GUI resizeable (the text looks a bit small) ?

Some workflow irritations. No double click to reset, and you have to double click to open menu options for filter and so on. Fairly high CPU. Noodling with Pad2 preset used around 9% of my i7 6700k and brought FL Studio's CPU meter to 65%. Could do with a resize option.

I noticed a lot of unwanted low frequency on many of the patches, you'll definitely need a highpass filter handy after this.

On the plus side, it makes some very nice and interesting noises. Definitely think I'll keep this for tinkering with, but I hope it gets some usability improvements.

v2.0.0 on mac osx AudioUnit is resizable
just hover the mousecursor over the right bottom corner
a black triangle "hi"-lights where you can resize it

kind of hidden...

Heh, yeah just noticed it. Although sadly it resizes back to default every time I close and re-open the interface (Win 10).

> sadly it resizes back to default

yes, same here - os x/logicX

btw, gui tipp:
any parameter that is underlined can be
doubleclicked to open a dropdown menu with options
or
scrollwheel scrolled (doubletap-scroll on trackpad) to scroll through various options

and yes: light-cream font colour on slightly less-light-cream backgroundcolour is kinda hard to read ;-)

Why does everyone have to make such minimal GUIs? It’s hard to look at. It’s eloquent, but the readability shown in the screenshots (not just the text; the whole thing) makes me not want to even download it.
