Infinite dynamic thread layers. No bumps.

At least now they're giving us an idea of what it is.

now we have the worst presets ever heard, coming from SoundPaint, and still some of you are defending them. (Notice I am talking about those specific presets, I already said that some of the other presets sounded great.)
Nothing wrong with those presets, they aren't supposed to be used in a "wonder who made that wonderful tune" context. However, I agree the way they are being used in some places, especially somewhere like 10:40 or 16:20 onwards indeed, the improvisation sounds like it's clashing musically and doesn't feel good to me, either. Separating the impro from the sound/preset itself is important, even in those places. But something like the opening sound you describe as "AWFUL" is very on point for the style and use it's aimed for, it's simply not "wonderful radio tune" material but designed with entirely different professional use in mind.

I wish this thing was affordable.
Sounds promising, I like everything I hear, but... I'm more than covered. We have so many solutions... That would be a pure bonus... :shrug:
If the price is right, if there's an intro price, I'll consider it for sure. Sounds awesome.
This post is supposed to be non-agressive. Now please give me a broad smile. :ud:

The Juniper 8 is a Stradivarius of Synths. This is the only comprehensively Ultra Deep-Sampled version of this magical instrument. The specific unit sampled was previous owned by Michael Sembello (wrote Flash Dance on it) and Junkie XL who preserved it sweetly. It is 100% feels sitting right there with it. Also used in Thriller etc. Music history ... within reach.

never let it be said Benfordlaw is a one-note troll. i'm sure they will move onto their hate of flat interfaces at some point.

The Jupiter sounds damn good to me.

Yes, how ridiculous to actually want decent PRESETS from a synth! Actually, everybody who writes music actually builds their own instruments from scratch, every time they start to write a song. I am only 1/1000th of the way through building yet another piano, so maybe by 2022 I should be able to begin work on my next song. Obviously.

The preset and the (shit) noodling at 10:40 are possibly the worst thing I have ever heard coming from a synth, and how amusing that some of you hear are trying to make out that is doesn't sound like crap, like something ANY free VST could produce.

Most people who make music use presets...

I agree - THAT is how to start a demo video, with some decent music.
But don't mind me, I'm a 'troll' because I dared to say something that some of the fanboys here disagreed with... LOL.

I'm very interested in soundpaint.
Main things I'd like to know:

The new audio format means lighter libraries too? I usually avoid big sample libraries.

Is It posible to create our own libraries? I have some rare instruments, found sounds and CPU heavy patches that I would like to sample. And if It is possible, how difficult is to program them?

If I create new sounds those are easy to share?

I didn't watch the complete video yet, but I was wondering what Juniper's total sample file size is?
UVI has a ton of sampled synths and there's IK's Syntronik, so I was curious if this one is a lot less sample-wise or more than they use in their products.
