I didn't want to imply that he's only after money. I doubt that he made much money with Helix in total. And, if the plugin flopped, I can also understand that he wants to save himself the support work now. Just saying that I'd like to sell it, if I could, so I get a bit of worth for an unused piece of software, whose license is just "lying around" here.

Again, not much of an issue if I don't.

You never implied anything, you were just being honest.
With a good manager he could have made a shed load more, which makes the whole saga rather strange.

Helix as mentioned above did great supersaws. what ever happened to Helix anyway?
Years ago it was on point but has since been superseded like so many other Synths of yesteryear.

From basic memory the developer offered a great Synth, but KVR users wanted a lower price point.
The Developer held his nerve and then it sort of disappeared. :)
so he never really did anything with Helix after that? its true that many hsynths has superceded it but i really liked Helix's workflow and most importantly its sound. but thats that :)

It would be good if Helix had an update .

New gui too

I'd buy it then

Best supersaw? - impossible! There isn't a best. I've tested 24 very capable synths and while there are some there I wouldn't choose to use myself because I don't like the sound, there are a bunch that I would happily grab and use for great supersaws.

I would be happy with any of these:
  • ANA 2
    Hive
    Serum
    Vital
    Spire
    DUNE 3
    Rapid
    Pigments
    Zebra2
Some are a little more punchy, some a little smoother, some a little wider, but all very nice. :D

Now, how the envelopes, filters, and effects are on these is a completely different issue! :hihi:
I notice you didn't include the Flowstone offering, Viper.
Not even sure if Synth Edit or Flowstone Synths count but maybe Viper?
Only because I don't have it installed. TBH, I think anything counts in this sort of test. :tu:

He was retired for some time. Enjoyed life on some desert island, and then came back after 6 years, and gave Mac users a 64-bit AU version. ;)

I imagine him now doing his dajob work at university, with Sylenth1 as some part time hobby. At least I can't imagine his business in any other way. Maybe I'm completely wrong.

I asked the dev if I was allowed to sell my license two times, but, he "held his nerve", as you say. ;)
hehe it sounds like the developer loved your money more than he did his own Synth and its reputation. Which quite frankly beggars belief.
I therefore hope Helix meets its own demise. Retired to the occasional discussion like this.
Sorry but a rogue Developer like that has no room in a busy market.
Jonas Norberg is not a rogue developer and he has updated his synth several times for compatibility. ... why add more features to a synth which is already solid and fully featured?

"but i really liked Helix's workflow and most importantly its sound. but thats that" - that is a perfect statement of a synth that is fully functional and does what it's supposed to do!!

There are many synths with pretty gui's with half implemented bells and whistles and has memory leaks worse than any tea bags and is more bug infested than rotten meat in a dysfunctional fridge... which people would flock too because its the "latest tech and great eye candy"
