Kalamata,

Hi. Thanks for the suggestion, your input helps a lot.

I've discovered through a lot of experimentation that $25.00 is about what most people will spend without thinking about it too much.

Your point is correct, that Fathom is probably still a good deal for around $85.00 a little less than the typical $120 to $200 for the best synths in the world like Avenger, Serum and u-he Diva.

But if it is more than $25.00 then sales drop too low.

However, to your point, I am working on an "Elite" version of Fathom which will be around $80 with some added professional level features and I think it will sell well among our super users who often request if there is a way to chip in more support to the project.

8) Also Quick Update. A few of you are waiting for bug fixes. There just a couple bugs left and all of them are related to CPU efficiency and voice management. I've managed to narrow the problem down to how Fathom handles voice stealing and polyphony. So a new release with drastic improvements to any CPU related popping is coming very soon.

Along those lines, it would be cool to have one button to select a "draft" mode that doesn't place the full burden for high resolution on the audio engine and CPU.

Some synths like SynthMaster (Quality) and u-he Diva (Accuracy) offer that option.

zzz00m, Others have also requested a single draft mode button, so I will try to get that in.

:borg: Also, I have an update for the last remaining issue left over from 2.13 and 2.14.

This is a copy of the email I just sent to the three users still having the issue:

I've been doing some extensive testing with Fathom to get to the bottom of the popping and distortion issue. I'm finding that the three users are probably dealing with the same problem related to CPU load. The problem seems to be caused by how Fathom is handling CPU load and voice stealing, and it seems to be the worst while using Reaper since it does not automatically distribute Fathom tracks to separate CPU cores.

The good news is that I've found the cause and have completed most of the design for the fix, but it is in some critical code and needs to be tested more aggressively before I release the final fix.

Basically, instead of simply reacting to CPU overloads Fathom will have the ability to predict CPU load and the maximum sustainable polyphonic voices and react accordingly before the CPU is overloaded, thus making it possible to assign voices in real-time before they need to be cut off or stolen from other voices.

Also, there will be a new setting for Reaper users which allows the user to change the internal CPU threshold so that the feature works properly even if multiple Fathom tracks are using the same processor core.

The fix should be available soon and I will keep you all posted when it is finally available in 2.15.

You will need the new password to unzip the file. It was changed with a recent version (2.12?) and supplied with the email receipt.

Carrieres, I sent you a PM.

You can always get the latest updates here:

Paying for upgrades is voluntary and if you see the free version available that means you can download it.

Use the serial number that came with your order and if you need the new one check your PM.

You've been here at KVR a long time, so I'm really happy you are using Fathom.

:borg: Monday Update: Still testing the Reaper fix.

:love: Also New Color Picker.

Several of you over the last year have requested the ability to change the color of the graph lines. Well I finally had a chance to do this now that Fathom has a settings page. The next version 2.15 will have a color picker which you can use to change both the color of the graph line and graph fill, including opacity, for any of the graphs such as oscillator, filter, envelope, wave draw, main view spectrum, note dots, as well as the gradient colors for the main view.
