The demo is quite interesting. Cool

Has anybody played with this yet? I downloaded the demo to see how it behaves. It doesn't seem too expensive.

Yes, I like it. Nice 259-ish oscillator, wave shaper, nice filter, 2 EGs, sequencer... Sounds very good. Not a 200e but I think this is one to watch.

They recently released Aalto v. 1.2 which also works in Windows.

This is a fun, inspiring, great-sounding plugin! Having never used a Buchla before it gives me a sense of what the Complex Oscillator & Lowpass Gate are all about. I haven't bought it (yet!) but I have been inspired to replicate some if its functions in VAZ Modular.

I bought in at 1.0 and have received free updates since. The upgrades are worth it, especially as the newer version is less CPU hungry than the original. Also the newest features are nice too, and some bugs got fixed.

Wow, got round to trying it and purchased it.

For the money this is real quality.

Seems like an interesting little creature. It does what it does in a very convincing manner. I might buy it when I get back to my home studio again. Thx for the link. Very Happy

Madrona Labs is now saying that a purchase of Aalto gives you $100 credit towards their Soundplane A controller:

"Remember, if you're an Aalto customer, you have already put $100 towards a Soundplane, and this discount is valid with the introductory price. Just remind me when you reserve and I'll refund your $100 on receipt."

http://madronalabs.com/topics/1143-soundplane-a-available-for-preorder-now

And conversely, if you preorder a Soundplane you get Aalto free with it.
