haven't tested them yet though



Yes this works and works really well, Everything you would want the editor to do it can ,
the editor controls the phatty and the phatty controls the editor
Call your sound you was working on in the project from the editor without even saving that sound to the phatty just save the daw or you can save the pre set to your computer to recall it .And best bit for me is I can use automation in the arrangement view in ableton


I got a chance to play around with the one for OSX today. It works fairly well for the most part. The on/off switches for Glide and Sync don't work at all, though.

It may be something with the OSX version of the plugin. I did a bunch of testing and my LP Stage II is receiving the proper CC values from other software but this little plugin doesn't seem to be sending them for the on/off values for sync and glide.

I'll say that Soundtower hasn't been the greatest in the customer service department!

Very few things are really free. Slim Phatty typically sells for $795, without a free editor. It could just as easily sell for $865 and include a "free" editor. That would stop the complaints about there not being a free editor, but everyone else who doesn't care about an editor would be spending money needlessly. The third-party developers need to be paid one way or another, so the choices are to bundle the price into the unit, or just have the people who want it pay for it. (That said, if it were bundled with the unit, they presumably would not add the full $70, because they would be getting income from every purchase, whereas only a smaller percentage of buyers would otherwise buy it, so by amortizing over all the buyers, they could add a smaller cost to each sale.)

Exactly, there are no such thing as a "free lunch".
If there is a cost involved, there is a price tag.
If you get value for free, someone else is paying.
It's as simple as that.

I don't mind that it costs money, I mean - it'd be nice if it were free but I'd be willing to pay.

What bothers me thought is that the Library Editor doesn't seem to work 100% (on win 7x64, don't know about mac), and from what I have read the support is terrible.

Agree on that one. It's ok if it comes with a price tag, but disregarding that it should work.
I also have a DSI Tetra and Soundtower provides an editor for that one too. It is kind of buggy and doesn't work properly. It's free, but that also means it is an advertiser for the premium version that costs money. I don't want to pay for a premium version if they can't even make the free version function correctly.

I am beginning to have my doubts over Soundtowers skills to make good working editors.
Maybe there is room for a competitor?
Just as a hint for ambitious programers out there ... :wink:

Hi,

Could someone please send me a copy of the mac version of the editor? I checked the link and it seems the software has been removed.

Thanks,


Miles

Hi, maybe a little off topic, but the rack ears here in Europe cost 40 euros (60$ I guess)
I think it is a kind of bad joke.
The real cost of those pieces of metal is around 3$, so why don't include them in the package?
I understand that the wood embelishments would be optional (more than 100$ in Europe), but the metal rack ears?
I really don't understand the willingness of Moog Inc to make their customers mad.
Regards.

i heard amos (at a moogfest discussion panel) say, that if it wasn't for moogfest and the animoog, the phatty vst/au editor would have been released by now.

Moog has taken a Mac-esque approach to marketing themselves. Doesn't bother me much if it helps keeps a stellar boutique company in business. Bear in mind you are not dealing with your average retailer (in many regards) when you are dealing with Moog.

I only mind it when they don't deliver. ::cough:: Taurus 3 bug fixes ::cough:: :evil: :evil: :evil:
