If you are looking for a VST instrument that can produce very playable and unique blown and plucked sounds but also had a low CPU hit Modelonia is the perfect instrument for the task. Modelonia has an orchestral/score vibe to it and it comes with a large library of sounds to get you started and there is plenty of control and modulation to play with to get even more interesting things happening, i found myself inspired and easily coming up with melodies with this plugin and i can see it playing a major part in a lot of my productions. For £53.00 Modelonia is worth every penny, a big plus for me is that there is none of this off putting intrusive jumping through hoops internet connection needed business before you start to use the software that you have just paid for (Some developers need to realize that the vast majority of us producers are good, honest hard working folk and keep their copy protection scheme simple and pain free - rant over!) the support from the NUSofting developer has been very responsive and helpful when i asked for advice and as long as NUSofting stays in business they will also have my support as a customer.
I'm enthusiastic about modelonia and downloaded the demo. I work on a mac with the latest operating system with the live 9 suite. Modelonia always come up with an error message: "can't load bank, wrong file size" when loading a previously saved song with a modelonia instant. Is this problem familiar?
