Thenatan is an indie developer and might be taking the same stance as Klanghelm.
Klanghelm FAQ wrote:Do you offer demo versions?

No. At least for now. Because it takes time to create demos and it takes time to maintain them. I want to focus on the actual product, spend my time on supporting that. Keep in mind, I offer my plugins at extremely affordable prices. One reason I can keep Klanghelm prices low is by refraining from putting my time into demo versions.
FWIW, there are a few videos for Vybz. See: https://www.kvraudio.com/video/thenatan

We just need some affluent and prolific KVR members to buy it and enlighten us. :hihi:

Apologies for my part in hijacking this RC-20 thread. :oops:

I'm surprised at how advanced this seems to be. I thought he was just a guy who made romplers with some 3rd party shell. It's caught my interest.
Hi-de-Hi!

I'm quite effluent at the moment, so I took a gamble and bought it, as I love stuff like this, and am a big fan of RC-20. Looks like there may be a demo version at some point as it installs in 'demo' mode.

Anyway, only played with it briefly, but impressed so far. It does some things better than RC-20 (the reverb and delay LFOs for a start, nice selection of different reverb types, the syncing etc..) and some not as well (the distortions, no 'flux' (booo!), no 'wobble' section (the 'time machine' is a bit crap to be honest - little control over it)).

CPU very good - similar to RC20, i.e, super low considering what you're running. Easy install and authorisation (inclusion of .dll files in the package is a nice touch), and the docs are good.

I'll definitely get a lot of use out of it I think, as a companion to, rather than replacing RC-20. On with some more messing about.
