And a real disappointment is again just ADSR envelopes which are not that practical if you have a pressure capable controller…
As soon the bug is fixed, I’ll noodle a bit and then add it to my unused collection I guess… But who knows…
MIDI is broken? A user reported using 4 instances inside Drambo on Audiob.us

Not much to add specifically, but I recently added their Alpha to my collection and have really enjoyed it. Big sweet spot and pretty good range for what on the surface looks pretty simple.

This will definitely get a look from me, though I’m not an huge FM guy.

The standalone doesn’t work with my controller, all other Bleass instruments work fine as standalone…

"Whenever a developer releases a new FM plugin synth, it’s become almost obligatory for it to describe its hardware forebears as being ‘notoriously difficult to program’, and to say that it’s made the whole process a lot easier.

"With Omega, Bleass is going precisely that; in fact, it’s going even further, claiming that it’s “not just easier than other FM synths, it’s easy - period!”

"So, we’re assured that Omega can produce all the FM tones you’re familiar with - sparkly electric pianos, pads and bells, plus deep basses - but without the hassle. There are four operators, which are all editable on one screen, along with an analogue-style waveshaper and multimode filter."

Has anyone been in contact with their support? I sent an email almost a week ago, with a reminder yesterday, but still no answer. I accidentally ordered their Omega synth only, and not the bundle. Both are the same price $59, so I got confused pushing the closest "add to cart" button. I emailed them directly afterwards, but no answer so far.

Thanks. Looks like I emailed support@bleass.net. It is the email address in the email foot when they deliver the licenses.

It seems to be fixed, I tested again, this time connected to a Mac and it worked, later also with my Sensel. All is fine now.

MIDI is working for me on iPad standalone, has been since day 1, but there is a hitch... it seems held notes randomly retrigger for me. Other than that I'm absolutely loving it, I really like the waveshaper, it really fits the synth in my opinion. My only gripe is only sine waves... when will developers stop doing this it's so annoying. Honestly they should all be doing the waveforms like Nemesis at this point. But, having a blast anyway!
In the future there will be robots!

It sounds very musical to me. A lot of FM synths don't. I'll probably buy it. Some seem to care more about stuff like complex envelopes than musicality, which I guess is fine, depends on what your goals with the synth are. Does anyone know when the sale ends?
