I still hope to see a fix for the Cubase crackling issue when multi-threading is enabled.
turn it off and let the host handle multi
That's not unreasonable, but I just like everything working perfectly :p

Seems really good but I think kiloheart's phaseplants is better than this one?
phaseplant isnt out yet, so no idea how you can make a decision like that
It is out now. It is a completely different beast from Dune. They are both very good synths. Just wish Dune had up to date modulation like all the other new synths, that's from a sound design point of view though.

Just got Dune 3 a few days ago. What a beast! Best sounding synth on the market imo. So thick, warm and lush. I do wish it had a right click option to modulate a parameter or drag and drop like Hive does. That's about the only nitpick though. The oscillators, filters, effects all sound superb to me. And 2 arpeggiators are cool to have :)

This is my definitely my go-to now and makes me not care about any other synth out there, as sound wise for my taste, I find it trumps them all.

it IS pretty great. but... can we edit an arpeggiator pattern? in other synth plugins, i can drag the bar to another note, but here? seems unchangeable (or do i have to export it out, change it as midi, then import it back???).....
always one plugin short of perfection...

in midi mode, no editing, its an imported midi file (usually by whoever made the preset)

That's exactly my experience.

If you use the vintage waveforms (on the WT oscillator) plus one of the analog emulation filters you can get some very convincing analog sounds.

True, dont be afraid to go a little dark with the filters, then dial it back.
It can get nicely analog.

Nice! I haven't used the WTs tha much yet I mostly use it in VA mode. The Blade Runner lead preset (1st one in Dune 3 Factory leads) is also really nice. So many inspiring warm sounds out of this synth, love it so much

Dune 3 can do a broad range of sounds, here are some interesting ones I found:

Let's hope it goes on sale sooner; anyone with a hint of 'when' ?

I'm confused by the way keytracking seems to function in Dune 3. In my limited experience, when I increase a parameter like filter keytracking in other synths such as Hive 2 the cutoff frequency decreases for lower notes and increases for higher notes, but in Dune 3 (demo) it just sounds to me like the cutoff frequency increases for all notes as I increase keytracking.

For example, if I'm using a LP filter all notes become brighter as keytracking amount is increased.
