Tuesday you made us all into kids on Christmas morning… You get a vital, you get a vital… EVERYBODY GETS A VITAL! What you have done with minimal assistance is so #$% impressive. To see that this is just part of your output is intimidating. I think you are brilliant also for trusting the sales model you have. Making your creation a part of EDM history (prediction) by allowing mass adoption makes you generous and wise in the same act. Not everybody has $189 to spend on a synthesizer, and you acknowledged this. You have also given/sold us a whole cutting edge synthesizer, not a half a synth with another $200 worth of plugins required. 20 years ago, sadly I would have stolen your work with some risky key crack, today I am proud to pay for your work, especially because you trusted me to do the right thing. No dongle, or painful ilok software, and you have included a shop, which I can imagine empowering sound designers worldwide. Duda also rocks, no dig intended, I just extra-appreciate what you have done. I spent years collecting hardware, and you have made me rethink most of it. Your code isn’t bloated, and to me is insanely optimized (compared to my alternative, Pigments), and your controls/automation around filters, env/lfo are better than one could wish for. Much respect also due to the amazing preset creators, and the GUI assistance I believe you had. I can create sounds as fast as I can think them up, and I already find many things I like better than Pigments 2, a worthy rival. I could keep going, but I will leave you with two requests.
- Order yourself a full-face helmet immediately, your brain is special, fragile, and a national treasure imo.
- As soon as you safely can, please take a long trip to somewhere amazing; you have earned it. We can wait for features and low-priority fixes, but you finished a marathon, we owe you any rest you need! -Dan
