Blade is a beautiful sounding instrument and very powerful as it always was. The sheer amount of tiny knobs all over the place makes it very difficult to use. It would really benefit from an overhauled and resizable GUI.

I think Rob started making his own GUIs at some point. Some of them really went down hill after that imho.
Hi-de-Hi!

Yes, I agree. I had the same impression with Predator 2. Soundwise a killer synth and extremely underrated but the user interface is just not its strongest selling point

The only thing which frustrates me about his synths is that he only seems to code mono oscillators. I can work around is knob-heavy GUIs. He's always got interesting ideas for oscillators though.

Ah yeah, I forget. Nevertheless, they're Rob's designs right? He could insist on a stereo oscillator

If Blade2 supported resynthesis it would be almost a kind of Kawai K 5000.
