version 0.3.7, MacOS X PPC
WOW!! It's FREE!! This is awesome for vintage or new sounds. Sounds as good (or better) as a soft-synth that would cost big bucks. A must have for your AU/VST collection.
version 0.3.6, MacOS X PPC
The automat is the best synth I know, not only in comparison to free stuff!
version 0.3.6, MacOS X PPC
Nice for making synth strings and pads.
version 1.0b28, MacOS X UB
Dommage qu'il ne passe pas la validation de Logic pro8
version 0.4.0ub, MacOS X UB
Les sons générés sont chauds et enveloppants. Les effets sont parfaits (chorus, phaser, delay stéréo) et l'interface est sans reproche. L'edition de courbe est ultra-pratique et permet aux créatifs de s'exprimer sans limites. Le plug est très simple d'utilisation (pour ceux qui possèdent quelques bases en synthèse).
La fonction évolutive (et aléatoire) est des plus évoluée: chaque paramètre, y compris ceux de la matrice, est activé et permet à ceux qui ignorent tout de la synthèse sonore de créer des sons, en un seul clic, absolument expressifs: freeware en plus de cela, c'est un 20 sur 20 pour l'auteur que je remercie...
version 0.4.0ub, MacOS X UB
Super freeware, moins bien que Crystal qui vaut lui même mieux que pas mal de synthé payants...rapport qualité prix imbattable (sauf par Crystal donc) et merci pour la version Macintel, dans les deux cas super réactivité !
Un peu de patience pour la prise en main, mais dès que l'on pige le truc, il y du potentiel !
