maybe some of you using synthmaster2...? I tried this beast now in one project. It's capabilities are so awesome, the flexible envelopes, the distortion. Very nice stuff. I love it's flexibility, it's a real workstation synth, it comes close to my korg m3.
But one point is puzzling me totally: It seems that all my synth master sounds will sound very/too much "brillant", so playing with multiple instances will result in a painful high frequencies sludge... The most sounds in synth master are so fat itself played solo, that it's hard for me to fit them to the mix. Of course I eq-ing / filtering lots, but I cannot get rid of that harsh high frequencies. The filter in synth master doesn't seem to be so good at all to me... But maybe I use it the wrong way. Don't have such problems with other vstis.
The second problem is the stableness of the sound: If I use sm's ensemble feature, the sounds tends to be very unstable in volume. Of course this is normal for kind of unison effect, but that much? Also the quality settings (why do I need to bother about quality modes anyway?), if you compare draft to hq, draft will have evil bass frequencies, while hq seems to sound a bit "boring".
So my question is, what are your experiences with sm? Does it work successful for you? Do you have some example song published? Do you think there is a good replacement synth available (OSX)?
I am completely convinced now by Synthmaster, since v2.7. It has been extremely improved again.
