re:modular video: it sounds cool but it's nothing you cant get from Zebra, Diva, Spire, Sylenth, Hive, whatever.

haha. Alice deejay hook. :love:
serum sounds pretty piss poor in that video. wouldn't be my first supersaw choice anyway

btw. still the PWMed square oscillator is the coolest trick

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?
surreal,
You are of course correct.
I shouldn't have used the word "Rogue"
Bad choice of words for sure and for that I apologize.

Nope I am no fanboi of Helix but just highlighted the fact if a synth is feature complete with Maintenance updates moving with time then there is nothing to criticise the synth nor Developer about... if a person wants other synths with different options, well then go purchase other developers Synths with those desired features.

@strovoknights Hey thanks for posting that! Anacreon uses a special panning algorithm designed to make any supersaw sound as wide as possible.

@all I would say that you should get as many different supersaw VSTs as possible. Every synthesizer or VST is going to have a slightly different sound. I particularly like synth1 for muffled lo-fi supersaws, superwaveP8, Sylenth, z3ta+ is tricky but sounds pretty good, and honestly Ableton's built in Analog synth is awesome if you get a rack of multiple playing at once with the unison cranked up.

Don't forget to put something interesting and buzzy in the suboctave! I like to put a pulse or square wave or a synced oscillator an octave or two below the main supersaw and highpass filter it to get the texture without the bass interference.
