MacOS only at the moment. I hope for a Windows version as it seems interesting. Open source so there is a good chance for WinOS I assume. MacOS user are very welcome to report about this one I'm interested in opinions.

Very cool! I'd sure love a Linux version! :)

Doesn't the UI look like, maybe, Psychic Modulation had a hand in its design?

You can build it with HISE https://github.com/christophhart/HISE/tree/develop
I have success while ago, but synth was unstable.

I had to repair the presets and move them into application support with the samples. The presets don’t find their samples, but as they are mentioned by name I could load them and resave. But when calling them up, they sound without being triggered. I don’t know if that is intended…
The range of attack, decay and release seems odd 0 to 1 ms…

I am unskilled as far as programming goes, sadly. Nevertheless, it may be worth my while to give HISE another look. 🙂

I just checked the website. I love the improvements to the GUI!! A quick question: At the moment, it looks like it is essentially a one-note drone synth. As a feature request, could you make the synth "playable" so that I can play the drones pitched up and down on the keyboard like a multisampler does with samples?

So, to better explain: the current drone sound would be pitched by semitone up or down to match the midi keynote I am playing. This would be a really cool feature!!! Thanks for listeningg! :)

Now that I know that there is a Linux version, I'll be downloading and playing with this! :)

I prefered the old GUI. Also in the old GUI, you could see the name of the loaded sample. That seems to be gone.

You can flip the 'drone' switch, then it becomes a playable instrument. In the previous version that was the default setting. Now the drone-mode is the default, another thing I prefered in the previous version.
