Yeah, Reaktor, VCV Rack, and Max. I just want more time to use those three.

The video demo on the website don t suprise me and i m really not sure if this synth is made for me...

About the sound, I didn't test it in depth and I don't own softube modular.i can't compare.

What I notice, the oscillators have some analog drift, pwm are great, even modulated at audio rate, good job.
About the filter, it sound great too but they aren't like repro or the legend, it's normal, it's a full modular.
The CPU performance is great.
What surprised me is the formula parser and the easy workflow.
The chorus is nice, for now, I'm not convinced by the phasers but I need more time to test it.
I think, this modular synt have a bright future, the foundation are solid, the cherry team are responsive and nice.
When third dev will develop other modules, it could become exponential.
Do not fear to test it , cherry audio offers a refund, 14 days without restrictions, you could read the faqs, I don't work for them and I don't have any authority.
I'm not a big presets fan, and I think, they not deserve the synth, but who care about third modular presets...
Cheers.

I bought yesterday. First thoughts:

1. You must install Microsoft Visual C ++ 2010 in the new Windows.
2. VST2 in Reaper 4 x86 is excellent.
3. Needed synchronization with DAW in Delay.
4. 6 inputs and outputs for each connection. It's good.
5. The coloring of the modules is convenient. Creating synthesizers is easy. There are presets for training.
6. Rotary knobs and buttons for quick access to the parameters in the Perfom module are priority over automation and Midi Learn in DAW. I did not immediately understand why automation is reset after the project is opened.
7. Authorization via the Internet is somewhat troubling. I have a flash drive key for Reason, and I do not need internet. If I reinstall Windows, and the Internet was gone. What to do?
8. Needed predelay in Reverb. Reverb sound nice.
9. VCO is also nice. Not too "digital".
10. The processor load is tolerable. 13 copies of the modulator with simple synthesizers loaded the processor by 60%.

12. There are no thresholds for Midi Learn as in Tassman - not to edit the SS in DAW hands for optimal values.

A small composition was born:

With regards to authorisation, I would like the choice of where the authorisation is stored. USB stick is ideal for me

We don't want to bash the competition, but with that said, we didn't develop Voltage Modular in a vacuum. We had some very clear goals to improve upon aspects of other virtual modular synths that we didn't like, particular UI and speed of use. I'll be the first to say that for years, Reaktor has been the instrument I've really wanted to love, but every time I use it, I get frustrated trying to figure out its convoluted hierarchy, and just looking at all those itty-bitty cables makes my brain hurt. I've heard awesome sounds come from Reaktor, no question about that, but I just don't enjoy using it.

If you're ok with Reaktor's UI, then maybe there's no need to switch. But be clear, if you're comfortable using a hardware modular synth, then the learning curve of Voltage Modular is going to be absolutely zero, because it's EXACTLY like using a hardware system, just with added conveniences. No hidden panels, cables "in back," etc. etc. Just open it, drag in modules, patch cables, move modules any way you want RIGHT NOW, and off you go. It's so fast and I've used it so much that I finding myself getting annoyed with my dot com modular. ("Crap, I gotta set up Silent Way." "Crap, I need another oscillator." "Crap, the cable won't reach the mult." :D )

Don't know if we can do that or not (I'm not sure we can have windows expand beyond the boundaries of the module dimensions). I'll try to find out though.

@Mitch, few questions:
- do you plan to expand the Core with more free modules, or is it paid stuff only from here on out?
- do 3rd party developers expected to charge for their stuff, or can it also be free?
- how many of 3rd party developers are working now on their modules and what sort of interesting stuff we can expect from them?
- when does the discount for early access pack end? :)
