Hm? The free version lacks the S&H Module.
But it is used in one of the presets.
Chosing the preset activates the S&H.
Changing the preset, saving the DAW project, closing the DAW and start everything again. S&H with my changes still present.
Question: Can I use S&H with this "trick" though not in the free version?

I can't judge this, but we have a great precedent in the form of Cheese Machine 2 :idea: I Think the rules that worked there can be applied here as well :?:

Is the attack odd on the envelopes? I can't get a good pluck. It's like the attack isn't truly set to 0.

I believe you can activate Sample and hold by simply double clicking on S and H icon.

I noticed that too. It's an analog-style thing, I suppose. The compressor seems to have a faster attack time, though, so that can make things a bit snappier. Creating a click with a very short inverse filter envelope had a similar effect.

Cool, thanks! :tu:
I though the greyed out elements are "Pay Version" elements like in the FX section!

For real? :o Instant 5 for everybody :party:
Yeah. I figured this was going to happen. :dog:
Man, that was a joke :D I am 100% going to vote.
Yeah. It was obvious that you were joking. What didn't seem obvious was that I was too. :hihi:

Have fun voting. :tu:

:lol: haha I notice myself feeling irrationally irritated at using a cut down version of a synth with loads of features that I would really enjoy playing with, like all those (disabled) fx and the midi fx. If they weren't there I wouldn't miss them, but having them greyed out - I am amused to share - it annoys me!
Yeah zarf. Those disabled options bother me as much as you do.
Just in case the developer tracks this thread I want to congratulate you on this excellent virtual synth. The GUI is very pleasing to the eye and everything is designed very clearly. What I would ask you, knowing that it is a commercial product that follows a promotion and sales strategy, is that you explore the possibility in the future that the free version does not have these areas disabled in gray, because it is a bit annoying for users. Perhaps there is a better way to promote your product through the free version that is just as effective for you and less annoying for users. :wink:

Quick experiment with this synth (not my submission), I'm finding the delay to be really useful for getting interesting textures

OK, I'm starting to get some nice sounds from the HP synth! So far I'm going in a symphonic/jazz kinda sound with the design...still early though.

Oh, bummer. I'm running into stability issues with Ableton crashing now that I'm building up some tracks and effects (18 tracks, 20 plus effects).

I may have to make a scaled down entry, or worst case, pass up on this month's challenge.

Well, it's all relative as this new computer is light years better than my old WinXP machine running Ableton 8, in fact most of the synths used here barely ran on the old machine if at all.

A bit quicker than last month :)
HY poly seems a bit of a pain without the other components, really miss a distortion, oh well cannot be helped. If the full version ever goes on sale for like €10 I’m all over it :D

I made a folder of VST3 presets, so you can make music as badly as I do :)

Yes, thank you! I'm looking to round out my percussion sounds...and hopefully make music as badly as you do :tu:
