NKS Compatible

Postby 8BitSouls » Wed May 17, 2017 3:13 pm

:D I just saw your post that Chipsound will be NKS Compatible. I think this is an amazing step forward for 8bit creation.

I own a Komplete Kontrol 49keys and this midi interface is amazing. I'm really excited about this update. To be honest, we are all busy at work and when you have times off you want to enjoy your experience when creating music and don't spend too much time with the mouse.

You guys have any approximate date release ?

Second question, it's been awhile that you guys didn't updated your work in progress on ChipSynth, can we have an approximate date release too?

Cheers

Sebastien

Hi!

Hard to tell, especially since the first chipsynth is both a software and hardware synth. (The famicom chipsynth).
Others should get out faster once that one is out!

I did not know that it will be a Hardware Synth too. I would love to know more. Is there an article online that explain your product or any documentation. I already want to buy it :)

Cheers

Don't know. Just redid the whole design to with bare parts and no third party boards for more power and flexibility haha.

fair enough ;) Better to do it right that rushing thing. One again, if you can answer....if the option is available of buying software only, will it be possible to buy the software separately in advance?

Second question, are you guys pretty much done with Chipsound update or we can except new content in a future update?

hardware and software versions of chipsynth FC will be separate, no need to buy both.

We are working on an update to chipsounds now with NKS support.

This is a really good news. Thanks for the update. I own Chipsound and Komplete Kontrol keyboard. Let me know if you guys need to test anything.

You can have a build (probably final) today if you want? Mac or PC?

Hey David,

just want to give some feedback. I played a little bit with the NKS update. First thing I must to confess is that it's a game changer by using the NKS patch browser preset. Not that your preset browser is bad, it's ok but for people like me that using 4K monitor it's a bit uncomfortable to use...maybe a higher Vst resolution would be nice ;)

All the rest is just fantastic. I really like the knob mapping for each preset. It make me want to use Chipsound more often, because I'm lazy a I don't like to map midi :?

Good job and I can't wait to play with ChipSynth :D

Cheers.

Thank you! We have spent way more time that I expected on this, glad you like it.
We designed parameter pages explicitly for NKS.

Note all our future plugins are re-sizable :)
