Incredible synth, I was sold once I’ve started to twist the notes in mpe mode, although it sounds great in any mode. There is no other synth that goes into the same territory as Generate, at least that I know. Thanks for the update.

Just picked up Generate in the BF Sale (A bargain at £44). I had looked at it when it forst came out and thought I probably didn't need it for $150 but the numerous and very useful updates and BF price reminded me I did :-)

Truly amazing and actually 'original' synth with a clever and inspiring GUI and Workflow, glad to own it at last- west coast and MPE...not so many of them around!

it is indeed one of the 'special' or niche synths... a great synth, and with MPE, well, an astonishing bandwidth you can achieve with only one preset....

great to program, indeed fast workflow for detailed preset making.

Any change in the cpu load with the new update? Generate is def a secret weapon synth, that and something like Plasmonic are 2 of the best slept on softsynths that have come out recently.

How many iLok activations do you get with Generate? i.e. can you have it simultaneously activated on two computers or dongles?

yes, indeed, based as always on other, not syntesis, but 'papers', etc.
and implemented in a unique way, so unique synthesis.

a pendulum works in a circle, if you have circle, and a line, from the centre to -of course- boundary, that line can represent the phase of a sine wave, for example. or is it always a sine wave.

o well, me no expert.

the developer has explained how it works, because of the special properties, he invested a lot of time, to make workable oscillator.
