Its a interesting synth i was eying for a while, but i did not wanted to pay that much for it since i have so many great synths. It has some cool and unique features, the sound is good, the FX too. Its quite easy to program and it currently is just for lless than 20 bucks and you get Iris2 for free if you do not own it.

Does that mean I can crossgrade to ozone 8 advanced for the 99€ action?

That would make it kind of a no-brainer

Some of the blurb for Wiggle makes it sound like an April Fool joke:

"The world is a marvelous system of wiggles. It has always been a challenge for electronic musicians to sufficiently reflect the wiggly nature of sound and human emotion with limited tools in the digital realm."

You may wiggle mine but it'll be more than 20..

Joking aside, what can Wiggle do?

* It can modulate 4 points in the wave oscilator in all directions in different shapes
* You can define a custome additional wave shaper
* Osc FM with defineable frequency
* FM Matrix for the 4 oscillators
* You can easily creat 4 snapshots and morph between them like you can do in Vecto, except you can morph all instead of modulate a few parameters
* And ofc the standard modulation stuff, per osc amp envelopes and some fx

Thanks for pointing this out I now own, Wiggle.
Quick play and i had my headphones on, couldn't believe how quiet it was! Everything turned up full blast...
I cant hear well at the moment due to a really bad middle ear infection, ... turns out the sound was coming out my laptop speakers and not using my audio interface but because im so deaf atm I thought it was playing through the headphones 😂😂

Has anybody found a way to change the GUI size? With my older MacBook Pro and the added VST window I cannot get to the bottom of the synth... :(

Edit: And for some reason I seem not able to authorize the synth through its authorizer in Reason... Any ideas?

I think the GUI is fixed, but I am not sure.

I simply entered the serial. I am on Windows.

Me too, just put in the serial and it works.
Sounds really nice to my broken ears.
Not so sure about the iris2 but haven't downloaded any libraries yet

Hehe. The other day I managed to have the monitor speakers on at the same time as wearing (semi-closed) headphones. The headphone volume knob was working like an EQ. Turn it up and the bass dropped away, turn it down and the bass came back.
Stupido user!

Anyhow, I've looked at Wiggle but I'm now a bit concerned about how I will reflect the waggly nature of sound. You can't do one without the other. That would be ridiculous.

I was going to buy Wiggle but it has not been updated since 2017. And apparently there are bugs that make it unusable in Ableton Live. So just beware it maybe abandonware.

Thanks! Entering the serial brings up something like "cannot connect to the internet"...
Same message / behavior in Cubase... Authorized in Garageband... :/
Might have wasted my money on that one... Contacted support...

It worked quite smooth on my machine. Maybe you could lower the oversampling and see if it works better. General rules of thumb for optimizations
* Lower sampling rate (and oversampling)
* Less FX (like mega long convolution reverbs)
* Less voices
* Less unison
* Less FX (including filter) per voice if suitable
* Shorter tails in the Amp Envelope

The modulation options and the fm table are well done and integrate really well with Reason.
Unfortunately I just didn't like the tones I was hearing. Lots of aliasing and cheap plastic sounding filters.

I guess this is what makes the world go round - different opinions - I think it sounds really lush and awesome!
Also i've had loads of them running and only had 2 bars on the dsp so seems pretty efficient too 😀
