What's there to say really? VITAL is an incredibly powerful and entirely capable wavetable synth and it's available sans-barrier (free!) for those of us who cannot afford to buy expensive plugins and if you want to support Matt you can buy versions with more presets and waveforms but you can /also/ subscribe at 5$/mo towards either buying artist's preset packs or the fully stocked paid version (which has the same functionality as the free one! Only limitation is 5 text-to-wavetable requests per day for free users afaik). Between the incredibly powerful synth itself, the beautiful and inviting interface, the thriving active community at the vital audio forum and the empowering pay-what-you-want/can pricing scheme for this synth you can tell this was a work of love. VITAL works on windows and mac but it even works on Linux.

Good Morning, Has anyone got this working on Ubuntu 20.04 with Ardour 6.5 ? I am a paying user of Helm and I am ready to buy this however only the stand alone works on my system.

Warm regards.

It should work if it supports LV2.

It doesn't seem like Vital likes Ableton or that it' just a bit spotty.

Gonna try it with Waveform 11. It didn't like Tyrell by U-He, hope this goes better.
