What can I say, that 99 percent of these other excellent reviews haven't said?

I absolutely LOVE this synthesizer.

It is a staple in my studio and will be for an indefinite amount of time.

I was so impressed, I bought the Pro version for a mere $80.

Matt Tytel has programmed an absolute beast of a synthesizer that you should definitely have in your studio.

It's not just "Good-because-it's-free", it's more like "How-can-this-astounding-synth-possibly-be-free?"
I say that Matt deserves your money. I reckon you would probably be more than happy to support him too, about five minutes after installing it.
Tons of modulation options and some awesome morph stuff with the wavetables.
Text-to-wavetable is a really cool and useful feature for sound creation.
The Spectral Morph feature is clever.

10/5 stars. I cannot recommend this highly enough.
Look up my username on Soundcloud to hear it in action, as I use it for 90 percent of my synth parts.

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.

Big and detailed Serum to Vital compare. http://soundpeaks.net/blog/serum-vs-vital

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.

you're going to be pleasantly surprised;). It is at the height of Serum.

Well, Sprint Street, I do not think the Synth that can handle all music genres is made yet. I have things like Fathom, Serum, Dune and Omnisphere along with the more common ones from Native Instruments and Uhe, and still I use Vital a lot. I am not into the same kind of music as you are so I think that is the difference why som give it a 5 star. It would receive a 5 star from me if I were to review it. Echo Soundworks released recently some presets for Vital. Many great ones and in genres at least close to yours. They sound great in my ear.
