It might be too expensive,might not.I suppose it depends on how good and useful it is. Most big name synth plugins are around $200 even if they are frequently on half off sales. I don’t usually pay full price for any plugin if can help it,but people pay 190 dollars for Serum all day every day. I demoed the other Dawsome synths and thought they were interesting but not something I needed to buy. I also never bought Serum because it’s too expensive and I got most of its competitors…on sale

Regardless, you have 90 days to decide for yourself whether MYTH is worth it. I can't think of many developers who provide a fully functional 90-day free trial. Give it a spin! 8)

You can also just "exploit" the 90 days trial to have some fun for free - without even the slightest intention of doing a purchase. Just use it to create tons of sounds and samples or music that you can use afterwards :-)

Congratulations. Saving up some money to get this 🙂 so fascinating. Wish you the best sell.

Hi Peter can you let us know how long the intro price is available for please.

I only ask as it's out of my price range at full price so don't want to still be trialling it within the 90 days and then find I can't actually afford it.

I am assuming the intro price will end a lot quicker than 90 days hence the question.

No consideration of whether you already own (all) Dawsome-Products?

$105 on JRR with the "group" discount code.

I dont think dawesome have ever offered a loyalty type crossgrade, but it doesn't bother me because they often run generous sales and the demo period is unbeatable.

Initial impressions. It takes quite some time to tease out useful sounds from this. It's definitely not a 'wide sweet spot' synth. Seems to be mostly geared towards textured pads and creative fx. The presets themselves are mostly good and showcase what the synth can do. Some of them are extremely quiet, eg Endless by 4 T Thieves or Ghostbuster by Hydratek. The sound character reminds me of Pigments.

The effects are very good, and I was pleasantly surprised by how many of the presets weren't totally reliant on them to do the heavy lifting.

CPU can be very high. The Ghostbuster preset maxes out FL's CPU meter if I don't reduce the polyphony. Holding down 4 notes sends FL to over 40% on a large number of presets. Most of the presets have maximum 24-note polyphony, which I think was unwise on such a hungry synth. Easily changed, but still.

A couple of annoyances. Scrolling through the top preset browser is dependent on which preset designers you've selected on the bottom browser. Eg, if I scroll to the end of Empty Vessel's presets it'll just cycle back to the start of them instead of going to Hienergy who is next in alphabetical order. Unnecessary behaviour, seeing as there is already a browser on the right for specific designers you've selected. If the panel opens every single preset I should be able to scroll through them. Also when you click the burger menu to open the presets, the window that appears covers the burger menu, forcing you to click elsewhere in the UI to close it. Just a minor thing but it's irritating.

I'm glad the demo period is so insanely generous, as I think I'll need it to learn to get the best out of this.

Did you chose the right SETUP for your controller?
Endless by 4T Thieves uses E2 - for example (polyphonic) aftertouch to allow expressive play. As soon as you use this it gets to normal gain levels!
Similar for "Ghostbuster" (which also uses E1 which normally is Velocity)

You need to choose a SETUP only once, it is not stored with the preset. Instead it is stored for the instance / or globally. In this way the same presets work well no matter if you have a standard midi controller or an MPE controller like the Roli Seaboard or the Osmose.

There are also some in-build tutorials to get you started with MYTH, and I know it is not popular, but i tried my best to make the user guide pleasant and fast to read.

With MYTH you can make even a sample of a toilet being flushed sound beautiful.
One of my sounds in the FACTORY bank (CLEANSWEEP PAD) is based on the noise of a floor cleaning machine; the original sample used for the IRIS sounds like a mixture between a giant vacuum cleaner and a trumpeting elephant.

My controller does not have aftertouch or MPE. I assume I just use the MIDI setting, which is what I'm doing. It is a nice user guide indeed :)
