Hi,

Thinking about getting a G2 engine but was wondering, what is Clavia support generally like in terms of updates and new modules? I've read in a few articles that there are still modules from the G1 that need implementing on the G2 - am I right? Are there any updates in the pipeline or is a G3 round the corner?!

Cheers guys....

I don't think a G3 is right around the corner and I'm holding out hope that v 2.0 of the editor/OS will include a lot of nice surprises and some of the things we've been requesting.

On the plus side, it's very easy to get in touch with/and a response from Clavia as Alexander will respond to most e-mails. As is, the G2 is an extremely powerful, fun-to-use, intuitive, and flexible tool. One of the best things about it is this community.

For example: want a new filter-type? Several people have built them from scratch... no waiting for Clavia required. The ability to DIY a lot of new and interesting 'circuits' is greater than it was in the NM Classic due to some low-level enhancements.

That's my 2c.

There are no promised updates for the G2 in the pipeline. There are not even rumors for the G3. IMHO, the best support for the G2 is this forum.

I must admit there's seems to be loads of support on this forum - the G2 is quite a "daunting" instrument I reakon though - when comparing it to usual stuff like nord leads or viruses. I think I could get my head round it though so might as well grab one soon.

Clavia respond to most emails I've sent them, generally pretty quickly.
They even fixed a completely inconsequential bug I sent them in the last update.. none of the more consequential ones though Smile
(although granted all the things i've found have simple workarounds..)

Based on the past 6 years I'd expect a major update about every year and a half to two years on average.

I agree. Sometimes wanting more modules is like wanting a new operator instead of plus, minus, subtract or divide on your calculator.

I personally find higher level stuff like the mutator far more value in the long run.

Yes, but many patches from this forum can't be demoed because they've got modules or attributes that aren't compatible with the demo. The patches I have tried have been very good though, I suppose the problem I have is that the G2 is such a leap from using run-of-the-mill subtractive synthesis. Hmmm, I'll have to ponder.......

If you know the basics of synthesis, then you will be able to start patching normal style synths. Then just experiment from there, or try to work out how patches posted here work. Also, people who attach patches here are usually happy to explain how they work when asked.

I was fairly daunted when I first got my G2, but within weeks of getting it, I had worked out enough to create patches that seem popular enough here. Embarassed That was meant to be a statement of the relative ease of learning about modular synthesis, not blowing my own trumpet by the way.

My G2 soon became one of the most used synths in my studio and now that I have expanded it, it get's even more use! Very Happy Even if you can't work out all of the modules or techniques, it is still nice to be able to add a third filter or 4 more oscillators to a synth you've designed. Even the basic modules will give you countless sound possiblities... you know you want one! Very Happy
