Don't let these grumblings of mine distract you from the fact that I think CLAP is what we've all been (perhaps unknowingly) waiting for, for years :)
I can't wait for the day I can finally nuke my entire VST3 dir (it isn't too crowded in the first place anyway). That's still far in the future, if it ever happens. I can only hope...

BTW, the new update has fixed the issue for me:

Not sure what the heck that was all about, but it seems to be gone now thankfully.

There might have been a slight inspiration ;-)

Usually, when I see FREE, I pass on by. Very few free synths, IMO, have ever sounded really good.

So imagine my surprise when I heard how amazing this thing sounds and not just for a free synth. I have paid for synths that don't sound this good. I absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants a great sounding synth that won't cost you anything more than your time downloading it.

I almost feel guilty getting this for nothing.

Thanks guys! It always makes my day to read from people enjoying Odin 2 :D

If you like the sound (and y'all feel guilty for not paying 8) ), the filters are available as a standalone FX unit with four MSEGs in Filter Force. There's also a free version if you want to try it!

Edit: Filter Force is just a spin-off of the synth I'm developing ATM :wink: It's codenamed Odin 3, but I doubt it will keep the name since it differs quite a lot from Odin's concept already.

Hi! What's the difference between Filter Force and Filter Force Free?

Asking for a friend... :wink:
Windows 10 and too many plugins

Filter Force Free limits you to LPF24 and HPF24 (out of 21 total filters characteristics) and also only two (out of four) MSEGs :)

No Linux support? 😢 Will Filter Force or your new “Odin 3” synth support Linux?

Yeah this bugged me quite a lot (I'm on linux myself). I hit a roadblock with OpenGL during development, which I couldn't solve at the time hence only macOS and Windows for Filter Force. That being said I found a workaround earlier this week, so the upcoming synth will (in all likelyhood) have a linux version :tu: I'm not sure if the fix will be applied back into Filter Force as well. Only if I have spare time on my hands :)

Does anyone use Odin 2 on Reaper? I downloaded the latest version (Odin 2.3.4) and found a problem with the presets. This is on Windows 11.

I select a preset I like. If I close the synth window (ie the FX button on the track) and then re-open it, it no longer shows the preset I selected. Although the preset sound itself is still selected, it shows no preset as being active in the Preset Library.

It's not just Reaper, or Windows 11. I can confirm that this also applies to the VST3 in Studio One and Ableton on Windows 10.

Also tried the CLAP plugin on Reaper. Same issue...

It probably does not communicate the preset name (and only the name) to the host. It must not recall that preset, as you might have tweaked it without saving it…

Same here, both VST3 and CLAP versions, using Reaper with Linux (Ubuntu 22.04).

Well, yes. But other plugins still manage to display the preset name after closing and reopening, even if a setting has been changed.
