Wow, that's a pretty bad UI design imho as it is lacking clear separation or guidance on which parameters belong to which oscillator. Adding some little coloured accents could work wonders here.

I'm a Skrock fan, I have most of their synthesizers. But this is a tough one. The UI looks crowded and not intuitive at all. Besides that, with the attack samples it goes into SubBoomBass territory, which is currently also on sale for the same price and has arguably more features. Also, the demo tracks are not convincing. I bought Kraft because of the thunderous (Derek Strike) demo track, and CyberSub doesn't seem to compete with that.

So, I guess this will be a hard sell.

bought this one! I :thumbup: think the workflow is faster than with subboombass (which remind me of the effect RedEtch) .

also sounds good for techno and electronic music

I respect that, I did this track this week using only CyberSub (and the usual delay/reverb some dist effects obv). I've done a lot of synths, I never release anything that doesn't surprise me when making music with it in a good way. And Update 1.1.0 is out soon with some simple gui tweaks and a few new waveforms. Appreciate the feedback, trying to make a smaller synth intuitive is always a work in progress. Since I learn myself, I know where everything is, I'll work on that.

If you just put a slightly different background color behind each section (just a lighter or darker gray will do), that will give some needed separation. Even without the obvious markers like OSC, FLT and ENV (those might even clutter the GUI more). Our brain tends to use patterns to recognize and find things.

On a different note, we need an SMFX bundle in the shop :puf_bigsmile:

Well ok, working towards something here. New features added such as sync and waveforms, the sample osc is also better. Got some good advice on the GUI side of things so looked into it, you know how it is, you dont see it until you see it. So thanks for that. :) Any other suggestions I'm here for. Free update is out.

I'd probably be a lousy beta tester anyway, but clearly somethings coming on the skrock synth front, how exciting is that :)

No, there's no such thing as a bad beta tester, I make these for myself too, just so I can have more fun making music. I'm learning constantly. Send me a PM with your username :)

I'm kind of in dev mode and restructuring things right now, but I thought I'd share some old dev photos for you guys. Mods, remove if inappropriate.
I designed these in photoshop and moved it all over to Blender. When I first started (trying) to make rack extensions that would have been an impossibility.
