This is a truly amazing tool for doing evolving ambient and rhythmic soundscapes. I give it only 3 stars at this point due to the idiosyncrasy of its only taking input from the computer keyboard and not responding to MIDI input.

Yes, it's good that the host program can record the keystrokes, but it really limits things like being able to use alternative controllers, especially for live, and improvisational use. I would love to be able to set my nanoKONTROL up to talk to this thing.

Also, there are plenty of other things I do with my keyboard that I do not want a synth plug-in responding to.

Please, if possible, set this amazing synth up to respond to MIDI input.

Uh whoa, .

This is top notch plugin wizardry right here. It's so good in fact I have to go change my vote for DC18. Fantastic work without a doubt.

Needs more sample import;). EDIT: RTFM and it does indeed have the option to do this.

A unique sound design tool that's fairly original. If there was an ability to add my own audio loops it would be five star for something new & different.

I couldn.t get it to work. would not accept any audio configuration that i have on my pc. Too bad cause it looked like fun.

Yes, that's a pity lucknow13. The .exe reportedly doesn't like ASIO (prefers Direct Sound) and the .dll is 32-bit only... Apart from that ¿ :-(.

This totally hosed up my ASIO setup, stay away.

Seems an interesting idea(tho I have no idea what exactly going on).

But the realization seems not on a side of usability.

Works only in 32-bit host, unfortunately. Which makes it not accessible for the most of producers today.
