  1. Wow, what a generous little gift, much thanks to all involved! I look forward to trying it out.

  2. Without question, It’s an interesting synthesizer and the idea of “Restructuring Synthese” would be capable of more development, but I don’t understand the hype about it – because it’s from the famous Wolfgang Palm and it’s free?? Contrary, it’s even sad that it was developed no further. If you could load your own WAV samples (as Base or Top) and there were much more layers than Top and Base (and independently outputs for the layers), then it would be a really extraordinary synth, but in this simple form it’s hardly usable in professional music production. I’ve tried to layer some PLEX on several channels, and I changed Top and Base, and on one channel I got a PLEX with Base only and on the other a PLEX with Top only…and I put some FX processing upon… Messing around with it, its sound is interesting, but I got no revolutionary results… Nevertheless thanks to Wolfgang Palm and maybe there’s some good programmer around that takes the “Restructuring Synthese” further to real revolution? Maybe you, Herbert? 🙂

  3. Without over analyzing the thing for what it is, it’s a great free synth with some nice sounds. For the price (free) it works just fine, and sounds good. The interface is easy to work with, and attractive. If you want a monumental synth that has forty layer capability, and sounds that would crumble Mount Olympus, well that’s gonna cost ya. But I’ve got more than one synth in the chicken coop, and can throw all the sound I want without having to get bogged down in techno-specs. If it sounds good, Print it. I’ll find a use for it, and it will be a welcome addition to the collection.
