    AWESOME! This DSP sound synthesis is getting out of control!

    Keep up the good work!

    This is an AWESOME synth. I love triggering the kickdrum at the same time I am tweaking the frequencies between 200-6000hz :) Lovely techie noises--way fun.

    Does anyone else notice a small "tick" at the start of a kickdrum sound if you trigger it when the previous sound hasn't finished yet? If this can be confirmed, can it also be fixed, pretty please? :)

    Confirmed, but unfortunatly not easy to 'fix' without using an excessive
    amount of dsp resources.
    Try to use the fastest/usable Decay setting.

    Hmm, I can´t believe that there is no user-response anymore!? Is there nothing more to say about or to do with this great plugin?! All the work of LeMury in vein?! Please no....

    Travelrec, we are using this plugin feverishly... It's so good, we are not taking time away from it to talk about it! :)

    LOL, you can use KX as a synth player?..
    i didnt know!!
    how do i go about playing instruments from the DSP?
    these drivers just keep getting better and better (and thats with the current driver set that i have 3537...i keep finding new stuff to play with and this is over the course of months...i wonder what the next versions will bring)

    unfortunately i'm having trouble to get these synths working at all with my sequencer when i have the time to try, so i can't comment

    the problem seems to be a conflict with logic/midiyoke

    Weird. I'll try it with logic.
    Anyway, we are working on a better MIDI solution for such 'kX DSP instruments'
    in the next driver release. (No more need for virtual midi ports like midiyoke etc.)

    i'm aware of the midi implementation planned


    but for some reason everytime i send midi data from logic through midi yoke i get a loopback error

    that also happened before my recent re-format

    Yes, although I'm not an Logic expert, it seems to keep connecting midiyoke's ins to outs.
    I've tried to change the midi enviroment setup, but to no avail.

    I was wondering why there were no more responses to this post!!!. Being a drummer, I thought this Analog Drum Machine was a fantastic achievement. Especially if you use the DSP. I have a pretty cool setup in DSP where I have the snare going to a Reverb with one setting (light) and the Hi Hat going to another Reverb slightly heavier. I didn't respond because I was too busy using the Drum Machine. Great work Lemury!!!!! I really hope you continue to develop KX DSP Instruments, ESPECIALLY DRUMS. This is too cool.

    Yeah logic really hates midiyoke... you gotta edit win.ini and disbale all the midiyoke devices you don't need. For most cases, you shouldn't need any of the midiyoke input ports, only out.
