    It's the most analog sounding softsynth that uses a new method of modeling analog components (calculates feedback with predictors instead of utilizing a one sample delay unit in the feedback loop), with a lot more precision than what was previously available (yes, even on hardware VAs). Yes, it needs a lot of CPU to do that. And yes, you can hear why it needs that CPU. It sounds organic and alive... analog, in fact.

    Well, take a listen for yourselves, these are examples from a beta version, which should go public beta soon:

      ACE is brilliant, as well. Also CPU hungry, but amazing sounding (all modulations are audio rate!).

      Check out Bazille (currently v0.4 alpha available), which is like ACE, but phase modulation and phase distortion based, and has double the modules of ACE. It's a part of u-he Berlin Modular series, which is ongoing work in progress. Link: http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=258683

            If it's even more CPU intensive than ACE then it's probably unusable for me

            Nice to see a few people are doing "CPU be damned" designs (Aalto is another one) in order to model analog better.

                I hate the idea of spending $1000+ so I can run a $100 softsynth oke:

                No Sandy Bridge for me, I work for AMD gotta stay loyal

                  Diva is going to be in the range of $149 to $199, Urs is contemplating about it still. My PC is 4 years old so it's due for an upgrade anyways...


                  Well, suit yourself, Intel still whoops AMD's ass big time. Sure they're more expensive, but they simply perform better. AMD has the price/performance ratio and lower end of the market, I guess.

                        Go get your ears cleaned and checked, mate. This is sounding and behaving like an analog synth. I can't wait the blind tests that are bound to show up sooner or later. You'd likely fail it.

                              move along nothing good to hear here....

                              News flash: demo sounds say more about the author than about the machine used.

                              Go test it yourself. It doesn't come with presets. Pick the dual VCO, whip up a bog-standard double saw w/ lowpass filter.

                              Just dry, no unison tricks - it sounds really rich.

                              One problem with emulations is suspension of disbelief. We've got a whole generation of people who were miffed that they could not modulate the flux capacitor while froodling the hobgnarx on a Jupiter 6 because Roland couldn't include more modulation routings so their patches tend to deviate from the regular sound you associate with analog. Start with just the basics, dry, and hear for yourself. Me - I always gravitate back to simple Juno/Moog-ish patches, and that's where this excels. It's great that it could do the other stuff too but most important to me - it sounds already great in "simple mode".
