If you need more than thirty days or even thirty minutes to decide whether a synth is for you or not then..... :arrow:
Okay, it's probably just another your attention seeking post, but just imagine that not everyone can have 30 days in a row to demo a plugin. Ongoing music projects that require attention, or just daily life, plenty of reasons.
How is pointing out that another recently released plugin has a 15 day demo limitation that didn't reset when they released the new version with a resizable gui "attention seeking"?

Dune 3's limitation is 30 days and does reset when an update such as this one is released. I assume you're over at the Ultra Analog thread moaning about the shorter demo limitation and no reset ?

Like I said being able to use a plugin for free forever to render is not in the best interest of anyone.

When you go to buy a car do you expect to drive it for 1,000 miles before deciding to buy ?

Don't have time in thirty days to test a plugin or not able to make a simple decision in that amount of time ? Then the real problem is not the demo limitation. Deciding whether a plugin is right for you is not rocket science. :wink:

I realize a skin really shouldn't matter that much, but it does. Call me shallow, but this feels like a new synth, and it makes me want to use it more. I feel it sets it apart from Dune 2.

Actually, I reset UA myself, took me just a few minutes to find out how...
Since in theory I could use UA without any limitations forever now, it is another reason to go for another type of demo mode because I am sure I could do the same thing with Dune if I wanted to.

Of course I won't do that, it amount to stealing. Actually I have already uninstalled UA (too many panels and tabs for my taste).

Had the first demo and I couldn’t dedicate my time to it because my business picked up and overtime was in order.
V3.2 was available again for demo, as Richard said, and this time was an instant purchase.
There are situations where 30 days are not sufficient due to personal life choices but 30 days is quite a long time to test.
So, new demo periods for new versions is quite fair.

Holy cow, I'm usually not a fan of white skins since it's not easy on the eyes, but the new skin is so CLEAN

If someone can turn the knobs white in photoshop or can swipe them out for all white knobs I'd be happy for them!
not as easy as you think, for some unknown reason the knob shadows are drawn onto the background, so makes it virtually impossible to change knobs

You mean the background is it own png? Why not change that as well?

I was trying to mess with highlights or hue but not getting close.

Maybe just replace the entire knob file, but not sure where to find more knobs like this.

Not having to render shadows or mess with alpha channel compositing lowers UI CPU usage and simplifies themes.

not something I care about, just makes the gui useless to tweak if you want to (as some do)

the background is a png file, that has some shadows already burned on. Some of the shadows encroach onto text, so it's a lot of work to get round this (and it isn't a flat colour either) Other knobs appear with shadows even if the knob itself has no shadow.

ive tried several knobs, but the permanent shadows make it a futile experiment

Really? I have to put my sunglasses on before I change to the White skin. It is way too bright to be useful to me.
