I'd gladly pay extra for one that has devil horns on Stevens head. And even more for a game where we can throw darts at him :hihi:

Hi Phil,
It could be great to have Polyphonic lfo, hopefully the g- env are poly, but every poly synth, poly not para :) sorry I couldn't resist, like Ana2 need poly lfo's!
An ETA about mpe integration?

how do you mean not fluid? is it taking a long time to change presets?

I reported the sluggishness in changing patches on the SA forum some time ago:

Although I have no issues with (speed of) loading new presets, there are some quirks that could be addressed in the future updates:
- the drop-down browser for the preset packs (the little triangle above the button "save") - I click on it and nothing happens. sometimes it works, most of the times it doesn't.
- the sampler knobs (start, loop start, loop end) seem to be inexplicably tied together and they all move by adjusting just one of them (!)
- the various pop-up windows that appear inside the GUI (WT Browser, Matrix, Arp etc.) they all have that close button but the experience is inconsistent due to them having different sizes. A method of closing by clicking for instance anywhere in the blank area on header of the window would be awesome (rick click to close, or doubleclick to close... something that doesn't require finding the X)

Apart from these, the synth is a beauty.

I wouldn't say very, just noticeably sluggish with 3D wavetables.
Meanwhile, I wish there was a color indication for effectively inactive (due to any reason, either voice count or volume) oscillators or sample slots

I like the not in use oscs being indicated.. good idea! Will add it to the feature list. Thanks!
