Watch on youtube.com


I am incredibly excited about this and I imagine that several of you will be as well. it is fantastic finally seeing something new being done with physical modeling and to have it come from the maker of Aalto, this is going to be special.

No phat filter? Massive fail! :ugeek:

I'm still trying to make sense of Aalto :help:
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

I'm pretty interested in this, Aalto is such a great sounding synth.

This looks damned interesting. I've always wanted to play with a physical modeling synth that lets you dig around inside the algorithms. I hope they put up a demo version so I can check it out.
Switches, knobs, buttons, LEDs, LCD screens, monitors, keys, mice, jacks, sockets. Now two joysticks!

If it's the same as Aalto you'll be able to download the full version and use it, the audio cuts out after a little while until you register it iirc.

Fuck yeah. :guitar:

My dream is to have Aalto ported to iOS. It would be LOVELY to use the touch interface.

Totally forgot about this until today while updating Aalto (didn't realize it got updated twice since August :shock: ). Looks like we only need to wait a few more weeks, listening to the samples on soundcloud. This thing sounds good.

Yes it's pretty awesome and has some very unusual and lifelike sounds. It's a massive CPU hit. It's getting me up at 60% and higher in Live 9 with nothing else running and only one instance. I downloaded the demo and had immediate inspiration just scrolling through the presets and had come up with a new piece of music within an hour just using the demo and waiting for the noise to subside before I bounced the tracks to audio. All in all if you are looking for something different this is it
