Hans is here with me now, having a cup of tea and a fruit scone….
He has read with great interest and says yes, the future is all happy claps, bells and whistling.
(he isn’t really…I just made that up..I am actually sat with Elmer Berstein’s pet hamster)
Good luck! I have had a few famous responses to emails and it’s such a buzz when they like what you’ve done..so keep at it fella and all the best.
Bummer. Hope they sort this for you asap.
I’m very happy with ‘Hybrid’ that I bought as part of a bundle with Pro Tools. It’s great and does a nice job. I used to have Absynth and FM8 on my old PC and found use for both to add colour here and there. Any failings in my music were my fault and not theirs for certain. They beeped and bleeped very nicely in their own special ways. I am no synth expert or anything (I can get them to make noises usually) but I would add that I would be careful not to buy too many plug-ins to the point where you don’t have the time to learn how to get the most from them. It’s easy to think that you can buy your way out of a problem but it isn’t always the case. If at all possible, try some synths (hard or soft) and see which appeal to your own ears and feel intuitive to yourself rather than relying on an interview or review (not saying you do…just saying). I’m sure some of the suggestions above are fantastic but I would only grab one or two at most and really get into them and try to get as much fun and frolics out of them instead of stacking yourself up with and army of stuff you’ll probably never use. Sorry if this is me trying to teach granny to suck eggs etc…
