Hartmann Neuron VS, Intel Mac -- Free

The accompanying sound library is ~1.5GB... both are linked below.

Hartmann Neuron VS (Intel Mac)

Neuron VS Database

Note: You still need the <nuke> controller to make the current version completely usable, but... It's a proper good start. It will work without, but apparently any parameter tied to the nuke controller will require it to be present. Given what I've read so far, I fully expect that with a short amount of time that will be overcome.

The Neuron was one of the most amazing synths in recent history, in my opinion. To have it freely available, on modern machines (albeit only Intel Mac) is bloody amazing.

The <nuke> controller was a dedicated HW control surface that originally came with the software.

I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

I have a recollection that the supposedly Nuke only parameters can be modulated through midi....this might be a false recollection, but I remember asking about whether the output of the nuke could be recorded and automated. It did work, but I think that the issue was the density of the recorded information, or something like that. So, my guess is that it is possible - but I'm not sure if it is a controller, or nrpn, etc...This was several years ago - I wish I remembered the details better.

Then there is also the software that allows you to analyze your own samples and import them. Apparently that has not been updated (?).

There was a fellow on harmony central who INSISTED that the whole thing was basically a scam, and that all that the neuron did was crossfade between samples. He claimed to have 'evidence', etc. Those posts might still be up on hc....but I didn't believe him for a second. I was quite impressed by it as a synth. There was really nothing like it.

So are the kb+nuke ebay prices going to burst? Thank God I sold my nuke back in '10, the main issue I could see was maybe becoming obsolete w/ new operating systems. Neuron is great for vamping samples, breathe new life from old sounds.
