Life-changing synth. If you've hit a wall in your ascent to being the big name producer that you want to be, and are wondering what synth will take you to the big league, this is likely it. I wish more developers took a page from OnePingOnly's book when designing their instruments. My music was lacking that special something, and boy am I glad I found that special something.

Don't let the lack of a GUI fool you.

User Interface
This VSTi uses the default interface of the host. I use FLstudio so when I open this VSTi I just see a shitload of confusing thingy's. I'd really wish this VSTi would have a good interface, because now it is VERY difficult to work with.

Can create some weird, but nice, pings and blings. Also useable in percussion. But that's al it can do.

Very limited, to say the least.

Not much

Some nice presets! Too bad they have numbers in stead of names!

Customer Support.

It's free!

Very stable.

It's not much, but it's worth a try.Read more

You set up ping relationships, weird as that sounds what it means is you get a percussive kind of synth that can get impressively complex. Good for dnb but begging to be used in experimental tracks, OnePingOnly has a different kind of learning curve although once used to it has high fun factor.

Pros: unique sounding, unique means of developing percussive sounds
Cons: no GUI, supposed to be coming soon :)

It's a hard call, some people I've suggested get this free VSTi simply hated it. I played it in the context of a song the same people liked it.

Maybe I'm a easy touch but when creative ideas are made free for me to have fun with I'm greatly appreciative. Cool idea, thinking differently will get you used to the OnePingOnly world.Read more

When I need it, it´s damn great.

Those Plings really sound very original, and not as simple sinus-tones or something.

No GUI - I really wish they will offer one at any time.

Its such a small VSTi - but I wish people would give it a try.

So long... nice little OnePingOnly. :)

This is an odd little percussion synth... a sound of its own. Can't quite figger out the key layout.
I haven't really used it on any pieces, but I think it might be a nice addition to a dance or drum'n'bass track if one were so inclined.
Freeware and better than some of the shareware products out there. Worth the download.
Bram's a madman and you must obey... his plug-ins (Cyanide, H2O and Supaphaser) are very good as wellRead more
