I have had Tantra on my to-buy list for maybe a year, but it has not gone on sale. It has been on sale in the past.

2 things - I wonder if there will be an upgrade for any existing Tantra owners and also how much it will be. Hopefully not the usual PA thing of charging crazy amounts initially.

The UI looks interesting based on the small image - https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/prod ... undle.html

The GUI for Tantra 2 looks like the food you would eat in a concentration camp.

wtf has happened to the GUI ? Doesnt look like DS's work. And it's exclusive to the mega bundle, what about existing Tantra users ? Seems a slap in the face to me. PA as usual, pissing people off royally.

it's usually done by Voger (who does a lot of design for good looking plugs), but this one 100% isn't voger.
PA recently opened a position for in-house designer. Not sure.

I'm not a fan of new design either, it's "flat" which i don't mind at all, but it looks underdeveloped.

Ouch, not a fan of the GUI either... From the tiny screenshot, it looks really basic and without any character.
I liked the GUI of version, and I like every GUI from Dmitry Sches plugins... I hope this one is only a sketch.
Some recent Multi-FX plugins really upped the game recently (like the Devious Machines Infiltrator for instance), both GUI-wise, sound-wise and feature-wise. I hope Tantra 2 will meet these expectations, and that both the sound, GUI and workflow will be good.

Wow gotta agree about the new GUI if in fact that's the way Tantra 2 will look when released. Huge step back from version 1 in my opinion.

Tantra 2 will have to bring a whole lot new to the table sound design wise in order for me to buy it with that GUI. :?

Just as a reminder this is Tantra 1's GUI:

No it's not. From their page: "*Early access for MEGA Bundle users: September 30 (sales start will be October 5)."

IMO, the most attractive multifx gui since the beginning of plugins.

I like the new GUI but never used the first software. However, DS Thorn is a favorite synth of mine this year so I'm pretty interested here.
