Nice. Would be great if he also open sourced Short Circuit. Best free sampler around, but a couple of bugs that need fixing.

I was amazed by this synth around 2007 …then along came zebra 2 and forgot about it .

Anyway , in renoise the gui doesn’t show up ( 32 bit installer on vista )
In reaper it does , but alpha channels are missing ( slidercaps ) and it looks jaggy

Really happy to see this, it’s a shame more people don’t do it. I hope someone can make it buildable in linux, I’m not sure if the code needs changes or it just needs path changes and stuff but it would be cool to have it. I still use this in wine sometimes, it’s a classic.

A lot of people already are participating - no wonder since it is an awesome synth, capable of almost anything, including sync, unison, fm, wavetable, analog osc, lots of LFOs. Pretty nice move by Claes.
