    I'm fairly confident that I will want to buy the upgrade - but if I don't how does this work? Will I be able to reinstall Synplant 1 after I try the demo?

    Yes, but to be sure, run the uninstaller and check that Synplant 2 is gone from your host first. Then download the old installer from the bottom of our download page and install.

    Pretty freaking impressive. My 1st sound is mimicking a ride cymbal and the results are amazing. Bravo!!!

  • Dumbo

    This is so fcking great! And it even runs smoothly on my old Win 8.1 machine! Creating new sounds is absolutely addictive. I really appreciate your effort!
    Thanks, this is really really good!

    nooooooooo just found it in the manual :___(
    well.. if ever there was a good reason to upgrade!

    Borrowed from a thread on Vi-Control: "Addictive synthesis" indeed!

    I am 47 and I've never given my opinion about something on the internet because that isn't my personality. I just want to say how great this is. The only software synth that is more fun than hardware. Well done.

  • stelvio

    Is there a way to map the Velocity and Aftertouch of my MIDI controller to parameters in Synplant?

  • Brian Rost

    This is certainly a surprise! I actually wasn’t expecting an update ever, which was OK because I love Synplant so much. I’m downloading today and looking forward to exploring it.

  • Aesthete

    Will Genopatch (AI) take take over the world and end humanity ? That's fine as long as we have Synplant 2 now.

  • Robert W Hanline

    So amazing! I'm having so much fun with this update! It's brilliant!

    Agreed!!

    still on my first tom sample and cannot believe my good god damn ears.

    The DNA manual editor seems to be more complex than it seems. How does the circle and dot work? Also there is a colored thick line. Anyone knows the details? https://soniccharge.com/forum/topic/2514-what-is-that-vertical-line-on-each-knob-of-the-dna-editor?~post12913

  • Pascal Niemeier

    Love it.

  • Pascal Niemeier

    Btw - do you plan "formant" re-synthesis? Would be great when feeding with choir sources...

  • Jonathan Gutstadt

    Having so much fun with this update. It is absolute 🔥. Thank you!
    The updated Helix with graphic representations of what you're changing makes it so much easier to dial in your sound. And the sample editor is 🤯 (mind blowing).

  • BeneathClouds

    Truly inspirational and very addictive.

    I am getting some beautiful results from samples of various hardware synths, e.g. PRO 3, OB 6.

    Words fail to express just how amazing Synplant 2 is.

    Huge respect to Sonic Charge.

  • Helge Krabye

    This is great news! Synthplant 1 was a fascinating tool for creating new and never-heard-before sounds, and Synthplant 2 seems to be much deeper!

  • Juergen Voelkel

    I spent the last 3 hours with running my shortwave radio archive through genopatch and had some ethereal moments before I discovered what the DNA helix has to offer! What can I say except this is top-notch ear candy! Thanks so much, Magnus!

  • Asher

    its cool I just really wish there was a way to see modulation its super hard to figure out what the genome patch is doing I see some parameters wiggling but I do not know what is controlling what. It would also be super cool to see the osc in a wavetable editor but ik thats asking a lot lol

  • Radosław Rasiński

    A great thing to experiment with and quickly create new sounds!!! I'm just wondering if there will be an update in the future to be able to import stereo files into Genopatch?

  • damian white

    im gonna get it:)

  • Jack Tipper

    Gah! I just bought the upgrade and I am really excited to dig into it, but all of my old Synplant patches in my Ableton sessions aren't loading after installing Synplant 2, so I had to revert to v1.2.6. Please let me know if anyone reading this knows of a way to get instances of Synplant 1 in Ableton to open correctly and automatically in Synplant 2 going forward! 🙏

    Running macOS 13.5.2 on Apple Silicon, Ableton 11.3.11 (rosetta), VST3.

    It's a problem with the VST3 versions in certain DAWs I am afraid. Sorry for the trouble. I just posted a reply, with two workarounds (including a script that can update your Live projects), here: https://soniccharge.com/forum/topic/2487-synplant-2-is-not-loading-on-projects-using-version-1

    Having lots of fun trying out Synplant 2.. one thing I'm not entirely clear about, in the DNA editing section the dials have a notch, but they also have a colored line that fills up some amount and doesn't seem editable. I can't find in the docs what exactly this corresponds to if somebody can shed some light!

  • Luis Bicho

    Hi PPL and Magnus, nice one! I have a question what kind of synthesis does the synplant use, addictive?
    Or there is another way to call it since it can do square, Triangle, Saw and sine.
    What do you call this kind of synthesis?

    Could you just allow V1 & V2 instances to be open instead of overwriting V1?

    This is possible and I explain this in the post I linked to.

  • Charles Hall

    Is version 2 Apple Silicon (M1/M2) native? I’m not interested in having to use Rosetta in 2023!
    Thanks

    Yep! In fact, all Sonic Charge plugins were updated a year ago to be Apple Silicon native.

  • Charles Hall

    Fantastic! Thanks! They really should make the system requirements easier to find on their website. That or I had a huge blind spot and looked right past them. Searching for M1 and Apple Silicon on forums just showed old posts about them working on it.

    Time to redownload the Microtonic plugin and the Synplant2 demo!

  • Sebastian I. Hartmann

    i'd really love to update, but the problem is, i'd also like to keep V1. so why do i need to uninstall V1? as it seems now, the dll name is the same and it just replaces V1 but what if i like V1 with all the flaws you changed? can you please make an installer that does not enforce uninstalling?
    (And yes i read the workaround thread but that does not apply for my system, where really things musnt be changed, i am looking at a very very very long backwards compatibility time)
