I just got Vital and have started to mess around with it. I’m glad there’s a free alternative to Serum now, but is it actually open source like Helm?
In the synth, there doesn’t appear to be an Info or About window, although I could be wrong. Furthermore, when I installed it, I didn’t have to press a button to accept any kind of license agreement/EULA, even a GPL or other open source one. Also, the source code for Vital isn’t up publicly on Matt’s GitHub.
Some news sources did in fact say that Vital is/would be open source, but all of the places that they did say that were from the beginning of this year or earlier.
I would love to see Vital not just as a piece of freemium with strings attached (I wish I didn’t have to make an account just to download the basic version of the plugin), but as a fully open source plugin that I can fork and modify all I want when I become a better C/C++ programmer.
Also, on an unrelated note: Uproar 24, if you know who they are, is going to have a field day making a YouTube video for this plugin
