I'm hoping for a release in early December.

I've had a recent big milestone completed which is background update of changes to the circuit. When component values are randomised or changed currently the DSP thread is loaded with a re-computation cost. This is fine for the full version, but for the low cpu version I have to pre-compute some tables to speed things up. I've got up and running now a way to offload the pre-computation to a background thread, then warmup the circuit and swap it into the DSP thread without any cpu spikes. This is called "lock free programming" and I want to thank a good friend Magnus Lidström for giving me his excellent class that does this in a very tidy manner. We help each other out with various utility algorithms from time to time.

I've also spent some time re-visiting the UI design to make it a little less busy. Here is how the final version will look:

Hype! I like that you keep aliasing in mind when doing physical modeling.

Have you thought of emulating a Macklemore VLZ Pro channel?

I do want to check these out since there is a lot of people that love the sound of them being used as a stomp box.

Yes please! Can still be found for cheap and sound great when overdriven, hope you can pick one up and work your magic into a quality emu! :hail:

The Feedback PRE CR kit for Eurorack may be of interest?

Thanks for a great set of plugins Andy! I finally got The Scream the other day and I've been using The Drop and The Glue in pretty much every new project since I got them just over a year ago.

Really looking forward to the synth and any other upcoming Cytomic originals, as you seem really good at design as well as DSP based on The Drop and your deviations from the original in The Glue. (I missed out on DCAM back in the day.)

If you are in need of electronic before/after audio examples for The Scream (I get the impression most of the following here is more guitar based), let me know and I can post something so you can see if it meets your standards.
