    I can't get it to work when loading up on Ableton.
    I sign in and it just loads and loads and loads..

    Any help?

    Please Install also the Standalone ! Use the " VitalInstaller " and click the " Standalone " !

    Then Go To (Windows Example) C:\Program Files\Vital
    Use the Standalone / Log In / The Standalone Version updates the Presets etc. !

    I'm pretty sure I just emailed with an address from 10 minute mail. From what I recall, it doesn't do any checks to make sure your address is kosher -- it just sucks down the presets.

    Also: not only is it better than all of the free soft synths, it's better than 90% of the paid ones as well. But I look forward to the paid presets being uploaded to the sister site. :)

    Yes, absolutely! I think the modulation possibilities of vital are great! Just the fact that the mod remap function, apart from adjusting LFO and ENV bias, basically allows an endless number of LFO's - for example when using a simple ramp LFO as basic shape - takes a lot of work off my shoulders! The 8 LFOs in serum were rarely enough for me when I was working on pad sounds, so I always had to resort to external solutions.
    The possibility to control not only the rate of another LFO (like in serum) but every parameter of another LFO creates a lot of flexibility and the possibility to modulate every parameter of a random lfo with another random (or normal) lfo is just mindblowing!

    Randomization-challenge: Let's randomize the parameters of an LFO with 4 Random LFOs, each Random LFO parameter being ranomized by a anaother Random LFO. LFO Randomception! :rofl:

    Why does a synth need an audio input?
    You can load in wavetables. Isn't that enough?

    yeah, i know. but let's be honest: it is a synth, not a multi-fx plugin.
    ...and as far as i have seen, a pure fx version is in the works.

    Because some synth can be used as effects on an entire track.

    external audio as an audio rate modulation source
    external audio to trigger Envelopes
    external audio to vocode or otherwise process

    no need to create a pure fx version, just add external audio input as an oscillator type.

    Hey guys, I got the user's presets from Discord, but I cannot see them in the preset browser.
    Is there any trick to make them appear in there?

    Oly you need to make the subfolder "Presets" and put them there.

    There already is a sub-folder called presets and I've put the discord folder there.

    That's the exact address:
    C:\Users\Me\Documents\Vital\Discord Presets 20 nov 20

    EDit: OK, now I understood , I created a subfolder into Discord Presets 20 nov 20 , called presets.

    Thank you :wink:

    If anyone bought pro, move the vital folder or rename it and launch vital again. They have added more presets/banks/wavetables/lfos. If you're a Mac user they moved the vital folder to user/music folder

    my god what is this shit? has anyone actually played a sound with this? load up basic saw, play with adsr a bit, filter bleah, spectral transformation tools sounds like a joke, programmed by students that have a paper for monday, put some unison to wash away the sound for good and then run and never look back. Something fishy goin' on here, this can't be a "best" in any department. If you hear people talking about this synth in 1 year,like it happened with serum, spire, dune etc, i quit.
    oh... and the login window everytime you reopen the gui was the icing on the cake. Who tf does that?

    Thank You!

    For those who have the free version, the free community built presets available are over 400 and counting, so if you know where to look there’s plenty of stuff to play with.
