    Anyone still using it? There are loads of presets available, and no matter what Rob Papen says, Predator is NOT a suitable replacement for it. That Linplug code is superior to anything Rob Papen and his team have released. Even though the first Albino was released 19 years ago, the sound still holds up and I don't know about you, but I'll be using it for the rest of my life.

    For me the Albino 3 is one of the best virtual software synthesizers ever made. I use it occasionally. He never gets boring. It is a shame that it has not been further developed. Unfortunately, the company no longer exists.

    Before I found Zebra Albino was my number one. I retired it in the desire to minimalize, but I think now... one more synth cant hurt, can it?

    Loved Linplug's Alpha. Albino carried the same heritage soundwise, but to me it was the same but just doubled up.

    "What if we had 4 oscs instead of 2?! Great idea!".

    Opinions and all but to me it lost a lot of the immediacy of Alpha. Still, shame about Linplug.

    Largo sounds very similar to me. Zebra does the mellow thing well too.

    There was a point when Peter from Linplug announced his new synth and said that it would load Albino patches, but then Rob Papen was a little bitch and stopped that, however Peter's new synth turned out to be Spectral, so I imagine that Spectral would do the Albino sound.

    Spectral is very close from the feeling to Albino3, but is less powerful i think.

    Yet i still use both for the unique ambient potential sound they create.

    To bad Linplug closed doors a while ago.

    Sorry for offtopic, but I actually started making music on Amiga Software, called "ProTracker 3.61".
    Good times...
