It still does not have a built-in patch manager so you will have to rely on your DAW.

Also Karrikuh:
If i may be allowed to act as an ungrateful bitch and dare to ask for more, i'd (please) ask for filter saturation. And maybe another lfo.

Please.

I can't believe I'm just trying this now, feels stupid. Sounds great but it's really simple, filter is really good for tone. I like how the parameters work, feels normal, musical and not nerdy.

I kinda ignored this synth because it did not came with presets so i did not gave it time and damn...
This thing has the best UNISON mode i ever heard on any vsti and hardware.
Its ridiculous how good it is.
I wish it would have small envelope for pitch like real JP, cause now env pitch mod is kinda limited , both envs are used by filter and amp.
Also 9 saws would be nice.
Congrats on that unison :clap:

Yep. I didn't see much rave about the supersaw, but, it's pretty darn good.

I just wished that the synth would be more feature rich, then I'd use it more.
Plugins and a DAW. On a operating system. Which runs on a computer.

I dont think its supersaw yet with 7 and this kind of unison detune but its close ,more intense values of detuning in it are not tweaked to resemble supersaw IMO but they could, its more unison oriented so it sits in the 80s , not JP yet cause supersaw detune needs different algo for detuning with higher values, its not linear, im not a fan of the env releases tho, they stand out so much considering how good other parts are, also resonance in filter is so so but overall nice surprise even after hearing all those other synths.

your average trancehead will not care how close a supersaw actually sounds like a supersaw. :idea:
