Here's a NKS template for using this in NI keyboards/Maschine

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/hiwrbo8jcoah ... Rz17a?dl=0
Together with a couple of fellow NI user Library members (Cooner and Christos Adamos) we have now kompleted the NKS conversion with previews and the full factory library as .nksf

No doubt Arturia will eventually get round to doing this themselves but in the meantime I couldn't wait :)
Updated this with the 1.1 presets, improved graphics and full previews.

Here's another nickpick, No 'Rate' mode for glide.. Pretty basic stuff but it's not there.
You mean this?

Image
What I mean is, glide is functioning as ‘Time’ mode. No option to change to ‘Rate’ mode. In other words, the gliding sound will always be noticeable even within small intervals as opposed to noticeable only within big intervals using rate mode. .

Take for example, Diva and hive’s glide - Two modes(time and rate). Serum gives you a curve editor, even more flexible.

But like I said, it’s a nickpick :wink:
Speaking of nitpicking, I have one also. It's even more of a nitpick than yours, as it's just a display I'd like changed. When you turn the control for the LFO all the way to right so it is S/H, it still looks like a square wave. I know the dot that goes along moves in a more random S/H pattern, but I'd like the waveform itself to look like a S/H shape. I guess as long as I see it fully turned to the right then I know it's S/H, and if I watch for a second or two I will see that movement looking more random to confirm it, but anyway...

I told you it was a nitpick ... :hihi:

Who can tell me, what are those Unison modes? I see by default it is set to classic and it sounds thin. Are the other modes give a wider modern spread?

I'm not sure how much wider you'd want the stereo spread to be as it seems Ok to me , but here is some info from the manual:

Classic mode:

This is the sort of unison detune mode found in many polyphonic analog synthesizers of the
past: all of the unison voices are centered around a single note and tuned above and below
that pitch as the detuning amount is increased. Pigments offers some interesting twists to
that concept, though.

Chord mode:

With the Unison Chord feature the pitch of the unison voice will be quantized in semitones
to match one of 12 classic chord shapes. The greater the number of unison voices used, the
richer the chord will be.


Also, if you use the same type for both engines at once it can seem much thicker. 8 voice unison on both wavetable engines for instance.

Thank you Examigan for gettting this information. I hoped the other modes would be different. I was just listening to some demos on YT and the unison did sound thinner than, for instance, on SynthMaster or Thorn.

I was able to get nearly identical results from both SM 2.9 and Pigments using 8 voice unison.

I don't know about Pigments's unison implementation but we have a) unison detune curve and b) osc tune drift which operates separately for each unison osc in SM1 / SM2

Almost everything can be modulated. You click the + sign in the upper-right of whichever knob and then a row of sliders appear where you can add an amount of modulation. Each of those sources also has a sidechain feature.

It has two engines and the unison is only available on the wavetable engine type, but you can set both engines to WT and set the Unison (and modulation) the way you want on each of those.

In this screenshot, I clicked the + next to Unison Detune and you can see the choices for it that you can adjust with the sliders. This was a Init preset I loaded so there's nothing setup on it at the moment.

Zak got some interesting drones/atmospheres with it, might have to opt in on this one:
