There is an issue with our OSC site links above. Google safe browsing seems to be intercepting the links and going to a 'safe browsing' page to inform the user that the site is safe, but not offering a way to get there! (Update - you can paste the link address shown on that safe browsing page into your browser to get there)
e.g.
https://sites.google.com/site/kvrosc/rules

So here are some useful links for this challenge:

So, the only unpleasant moment of this round is that everyone has to create a Cherry Audio account for the sake of their free synthesizer, it's not great. Well, I already went through this for the sake of Voltage Modular Free (which I later deleted), maybe it will even be possible to recover the password. But it's still a strange and presumptuous distribution strategy, it seems to me...

:dog: :D
You described exactly my situation. Had to ask for a password reset to get the little bugger. I already converted some of last months work in progress from FB-7999 to the MG1. At the moment this feels like a big step down. Let's see if there is anything hidden under its hood. :?

I'm having an issue when the LFO is ext sync mode, even when Logic is stopped, it continues to send sync, which in turn is triggering the LFO, which is triggering a note. Could be a logic setting that I can't find (I'm seeking advice on that) but I've never encountered this behavior on another synth when syncing lfo rate to the DAW. Does this happen with other DAW's?

I will be deleting and uninstalling and requesting account wipe after this month's round, if I decide to enter at all, just because of the way this was handled.

Not only the fact that I had to create an account, but I also had to input my credentials inside my DAW when I first loaded the plugin. I don't enjoy sharing my credentials to unsecured forms that go who-knows-where.

Not having an entry by #1 OSC jazz-fusion virtuoso cdbaksu this month because of this
- is a loss for us all… :scared:

Since I happen to have some Cherry Audio stuff I recently bought I'm ok with the user account thing - but I do understand you guys fully regarding this!

I will now also complain a little about something else haha :wink:

Why no commercial effects this month…?
That would really spice up things for me
(read: Bleass Phase Mutant) - such a great effect!
I play World music too, I'm just not sure which world it's from... :lol:

This wouldn't be allowed even in a commercial effects month, unless other rules about types of effects allowed were also relaxed.

So true, :tu: I almost wrote ”even if there was a free equivalent to Phase Mutant, I'm not sure even that would be allowed” So you just confirmed what I already suspected 8)

On to something more important:
Are you entering this month with your wonderful and relaxing nature music? :love:
There's a ”Birds” preset… ;)

Is there? I haven't really explored the presets. I'm not really working on nature sounds with this one. But I am working on something. And I did make a sort of bird patch, but it's pretty bad and I don't expect to use it. Maybe I'll come up with something better, though. Who knows?

I wasn't sure I was going to participate this month but after listening to some of the demos on Cherry Audio's website, as well as empphryio's tune, I'm feeling pretty inspired. I might come up with something. We will see.
