Run ReFX Cloud and they show up as not downloaded.
Thanks mate, I’m new to REFX. Having a lot of fun with Vanguard too. :)

I know this is the honeymoon period. But with such a wide sound palate (VA, WT and sample sound generators) and such a low CPU hit, Nexus is about 75 % of my soft synth needs.

Nice 👌🏻

Yeh, if they open it up further and let you drop in your own choice of oscillators and connections (and load samples and WTs) it will be one of the4 best soft synths period, as it is it's a great and inspirational palette of sounds.

Agreed, I’d like to see it open up even more, especially with respect to sampled sound generators. And with only reFX actually producing those samples in the first place, it could easily happen.

But even as it stands it’s still pretty awesome for me. What I mean is I’d _like_ it to open up but even if not, I’m still a happy camper

Are the newer xmas xps custom sounds, or a selection of presets from that years packs?

It's the latter. A few presets are from a couple of upcoming expansions, apparently.

I want to chime in as I was skeptical for upgrade into 4.0. I've upgraded into 4.5 but this time it wasn't 10 exp pack - I went with 4 expansions (about 13 GB of sounds including free packs). I'm impressed with this upgrade, now I only need more time to play with it :hihi:.
Good job ReFx :clap:

Good to see that there will be a second vintage synths expansion. Really liked the first one.

That's a nice little bonus to add '19 and '20. They are much smaller than the usual packs, just 24 in each, but added to the other two that's 152 new presets from their more recent expansions.

I wonder if Nexus 3 owners get '19 and '20 too?

Thanks. Nice little addition then, and it's appreciated. I assume the new '19 and '20 free presets for only Nexus4 owners since the email mentions "FREE NEXUS4 Expansions “Christmas 2019”, “Christmas 2020”, and “Christmas 2022”.

Looking forward to checking out Vintage Synths 2 later today.
