    version 1.0, MacOS X UB
    D'une grande souplesse, modulation de pratiquement tous les éléments (le coup génial est de vous permettre d'entendre ce que donnera la modulation d'un élément par un autre par un simple glisser de la souris au dessus de l'orifice approprié). L'auteur promet une rapidei mplantation des microtonalités.
    A ne pas négliger, un protocol intéressant de randomisation, dans lequel vous pouvez intervenir jusqu'à 4 types de modules avec un taux de variation différent. Intéressant pour laisser le log suggérer des combination et modification que l'on ne prend jamais, jusqu'à tourner en rond et se dire, que le logiciel est limité. Il y a encore quelques petits manques, mais ils sont minimes. Proche d'un Filterscape ou Zebra (plébiscité comme un des meilleurs synthés) par des capacités énormes de modulation (il n'y a pas une matrice proprement dite, mais on traine à la souris le module vers une sorte d'ouverture des autres modules, pouvant être modulés). Idéal pour les débutant qui peuvent procéder intuitivement et entendre avant de faire leur choix "ce que ca donne"...
    Ergonomiquement plus que correct, graphiquement c'est un peu chiotte, mais à côté des logiciels, qui reproduisent même des bouts de rouille et bouton rognés par des animaux domestiques (qui laisse entrer des chats dans son home-studio, sait comment elles apprécient des boutons de synthés et des tables de mixages), c'est le haut du pavé.
    La seule chose qui manque d'après les réactions des users sur le site, c'est la variation des tailles du plugin, certains ont une résolution d'écrant trop basse pour visualiser tout le plugin... ou l'inverse ceux qui bossent sur un Apple Cinema 30, ils voudraient avoir le machin... plug-ros. Comme on est entre garcon, la taille, ca compte visiblement. En espérant que ca permettra de pisser plus haut... que son cul????
