Mmhh, my daily dose of Plasmonic before I go to sleep.
This time an ambient space guitar...one preset, no extern FX.
A vocal pad tomorrow...damn these formant FX inside Plasmonic are also really fantastic, again I am stunned, subtle but somewhat so smooth and organic as well.

What I just noticed is that the GUI seems not right and has some bugs for me.
F.e. it seems not to show the right values. When f.e. an OSC is set to 0 and I hit a key it shows me a modulation of -1 semi tone. When I set it to -1 it shows no modulations when playing something. Something like this happens across the while board.
Also strange that parameters like pan always jump to the full right when the amplitude release is zero. Seems not to affect sound but looks strange and is confusing for me.
Also when i choose a destination and open the modulation source page and set a value, the GUI does flickering sometimes and seems not to show the right values until I close and open it again.
As much as I love the sound, the GUI NEEDS really some fixing/changes since it takes a lot of fun out off it and after a longer session it hurts indeed a bit and I get headache.
So I hope one day the GUI is on par with the sound engine :D
So far not the world end but I think it might also put a lot people off since I am not alone with this. But I am using MacBook M1 and Big Sur and it seems there are other GUI problems with other plug-ins so it could be also another Mac specific problem.
Whatever, first time I used the FDN formant in spaces and I really like the subtle but still kind of organic sound it can produce.

Thanks.I think Plasmonic must be one of the most versatile synths in terms of variety of sounds it can produce and it actually is even one of the more easy to program, once you find your way. More important is that it seems to inspire me more than most of my other synths which sounds a bit lifeless now :D

Thank you again cine. I very much enjoy your input.
I will going to make it m my habbit, too, to dive into programming plasmonic at least a bit every day.

I would like to know your or others practise how you start when you look for new sounds.
Like what do you do when you start from scratch. Like Which modules have you activated at the start and where do you develop the sound...
