also, synth1 really does sound terrific (not to be confused with sylenth1).

Re: Worst VSTI and VST you ever had

any EQ plugin that doesn't let you click on EQ curve in that way adding more filters and swiping through frequencies. Pls, no more virtual knobs.

There aren't worst, but... re-skinned versions of previous ones, for example, adding "2" in the title while VST's functionality still remains the same, effect and synthesis-wise. Few more presets and we're good to go. Money-grabbing, I know.

These new compression/multiband/EQ plugins that pop-up from time to time. What are they trying to re-invent this time?

From other perspective, I've had some mixed feelings on some Kontakt libraries I've found and had an option to play with. Those libraries that offer very over-processed wet sounds and just in-general are just expensive sample packs with some fancy skins on top, boring effects and basic modulation options. It's never a good first impression when you load one of those, press a key and meter goes red instantly. And these comes from such companies like Spitfire. I've seen a few that has basically no real functionality and just there to look good and experimental while it's just a basic synthesis going on or every key is mapped to a different sample or a multiple. Sucks.

Re: Worst VSTI and VST you ever had

Ignoring freebie's I would have to say that EastWest's PLAY Engine really makes me want to strangle my workstation with the multitude of "fixes" I had to go through to even get it working. At least the libraries are relatively decent (if not some of them being abit dated compared to equivalent Kontakt counterparts)

Hmmm, no. But I did try to key-track the sample rate of a bitcrusher so that I could "play" the aliasing once. That didn't work out, so I can only imagine an instrument revolving around that would be "meh".

I did something like that with key-tracking the buffer with this Reaktor ensemble a while ago and it worked out okay: [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

Hypersonic 2. I can literally smell shit when I think about it.

Kontakt Seahorse rocks, I don't know what the fuck you're talking about

The best part is pulling the WAV files out and realizing Kontakt had 1% to do with any of the modulation involved

Re: Worst VSTI and VST you ever had

Then it seems I'll have to give that another look. Figures Reaktor would have a way to do it. Would a Reaktor 5 module work if I got Reaktor 6?

The biggest issue when I tried to do it was tuning. I was using a key-tracked DC current to feed a peak controller that sent it's CV to the sample rate control of a couple of different free bitcrushers I tried out, I couldn't adjust the key-track curve to be harmonic for any of them though (outside of octaves). I figured it would need to be something programmed from a deeper level to do what I wanted.
