Hartmann Neuron VS

Post by scozbor » Thu Oct 16, 2008 9:17 pm

looks really interesting!

might have the chance to pick up a second hand one. Any idea of current value?

Make sure it runs under your OS version. I think if you have any problems, you're pretty much outta luck. I wouldn't buy any dead software at all.

holy crap this thing is awesome!!
DIGITAL POWAH :lol:

I probably wouldn't have got it if it didnt have the controller, and the controller is good! mouse in one hand, controller in the other! I really need to keep things hands on...

some of the presets aren't too great. and the modelmaker app which allows you to make your own 'models' (kinda like an osc template,made by re-synthesizing audio) is pretty klunky. have to spend some time on it...

awesome pad machine!!!!!! :love:
sounds great through the t-resonator :sb:

Did you know that the hardware synthesizer version was about US$10,000 new? Sound on Sound gave it a pretty scathing review when it came out. It was extremely buggy, and their opinion was that some of the names used for basic functions were bordering on pretentious. They did however say that it was a very unique and bizzare synthesizer, capable of some very strange sounds. So you should have heaps of fun with it!
I'm fairly sure they went bust, and Hartmann now works for Waldorf, where he designed the Blofeld & the upcoming Stromberg.

lets hear the sound samples!
the only non-modular synths i lust after are of the waldorf/hartmann/ppg school of thought/design. i have a mk1 microwave with programmer and would love (if i ever had the cash) a neuron and an old ppg. i might pick up the neuron vst at some point but it is pretty hard to find it at a reasonable price :bang:
