Wow, a very interesting set of spring OSC rules! I didn't understand the translation a bit, so I want to ask:
1) Did I understand correctly: my track should contain some (any) number of sounds similar to bird chirping, for example as an element of percussion, melodic line or atmosphere?
2) I don't have any one commercial VST, but to understand the rules, I want to ask: are commercial effects also subject to General conditions about the types of effects?

Drat, how can I get bird song out of Delay Lama?
might have to pick a different synth and make a "serious" track instead of my previous plans...
Just my 2^(2/1200)

Does Softube modular count (as well as other modulars?). As there's drum modules and all sorts in there.

^^ similar question: What about Reason Rack VST?

My thoughts on the answer: well, you could argue that modulars are not 'a synth'. Or, you could argue that they are. I don't know! Has this come up before, anyone? Do we have a precedent?

We did Mux one time, also MsoundFactory, Modulair and Fathom. I used Mux for the last Any-One-Synth. So modular is fine. However, make sure to not use samples at all.

Can't use samples or sampling for OSC. So NI Form or something like Iris 2 etc. is a no-no.

We don't have a condition: "One man - one synth" :) I'm also very happy that someone else will use the free synth! :hug:
