here's the steps i followed to load it into logic:
1) download neuron vs from here: NeuronVS Project
2) get the database from ofki here (it will download much faster): Hartmann Neuron VS - Free
3) RTFM and try it with audio hijack pro (free demo, sadly i was experiencing a lot of lag/latency but it worked)
- note: its a vst (not an audio unit for logic) so if you want to use it in logic you need a wrapper. also, its a vst version 2.1 or something (not the latest 2.4) so it won't work in newer DAW software like ableton live without a wrapper
4) download a vst to au wrapper like this one (free): VSTAU Manager (VST to AU Adapter) VSTAU_Manager-0.2rc2.app.zip
6) profit :grin: Screen Shot 2013-05-28 at 11.11.04 PM

yes, sadly its mac only. there's a facebook group which is kind of driving this whole project where you will find helpful downloads (the closest thing to a working pc plug-in version and tips on building a neuron 'rack').
i found a copy of model maker there for mac os 9 (hey another use for my mac g4). model maker allows you to import your own .wav or .aiff samples into the resynthesis of neuron. without it you're restricted to the content in the database, commercial add-ons, etc. neuron vs

also, you can't move the 2 huge circles in the gui with the mouse (you're supposed to use the hartmann nuke controller). in logic you click 'view' on the plug-ins top left and hit controls. from there you can move around the x/y position of the circles. if you hit command+L you can assign a midi controller/knob to them.
once i get the mac g4/oasys pci project going again i'll try to install model maker and import my own sounds into the neuron. neural, bro
*edit: since the controls are midi-mappable its not inconceivable that an ipad template for lemur, osc or whatevs could be made
