I'm going to turn a nearly HGF forgotten gem of the past to Freeware.

1. very 1st Protoplasm Pro (recompiled - details see below), or,
2. Shuniji Pro (recompiled plus some changes - details see below), or
3. LaserBlade (probably as is)

had been poll - results:
ProtoPlasm Pro 29% [47]
Shuniji Pro 42% [69]
LaserBlade Pro 27% [45]
Total Votes : 161

If feedback here is great, let's say over 120 votes and at least 5 pages of comments I'll put out two of the above.

This poll runs for 21 days. Anyway the 1st item will be made available when 90 votes have been reached - or shortly after that depending what the most voted item at that time is. ProtoPlasm is basically ready while Shuniji still needs some attention.

So it's up to you! spread the info and make others vote too

I don't think I've heard of any of them as those were around before I got into vsti's. But I did make a selection: Shunji for me. :D

Thanks for the kindness of setting one of your vst's free!

Not knowing much about any of them I chose the first. A brief description of each one would be nice. Thanks for this kind offer HG

Since Protoplasm is the only one I've used, that's the one I voted for. Hey, beggers can't be choosers. Anything is great.

Put your hands up and come out slowly. He has a synthesizer, and he's not afraid to use it.

I own all three, but Protoplasm was my first love. I believe it's the oldest of those mentioned, and definitely has that unique character.

Shuniji Pro looks like it could be very cool, so that is my first selection. If I had a second choice it would Lazerblade Pro. I think that would be cool as well. Whatever the final outcome is, I will be there to download the winner. I am always looking for new tools to play with. If they happen to be free, so much the better.
