Was thinking about a product like ear training for synthesis yesterday! Pure genius and funny coincidence. Looking forward to your release.

Nice article.

But don't try to fool me. You sdole my bidness!!!
Haha.

Every time i tend to be late. Had some ideas and i always come when there is already one model in development. Anyway i don't have any fund to help me build anything.

And in this case, it was mostly something i needed as a tool. So it's fairly good! I i look forward to try it.

But as said above, 120$ seems a bit expensive.
Will think about the 99$ discount.

Wish you the best for your business.

As of right now, no. But we're considering it in the future. Is there a particular reason why you'd prefer to download from the App store vs our site?

App Store is the way to go for the entire music instruments industry... Manual Installation and updating by hand is a thing of the past..

Because of Apple's stringent App Store regulations (including sandboxing) it is unlikely that the majority of pro music applications will ever make it into the App Store. The App Store disallows the addition of plug-ins by default. The only reason why Logic Audio is in the store because they relax their rules in regards to their own product line.

IF this does go to the App Store, PLEEEEASE also keep the regular download/purchase options.

Well, it's handy to keep all stuff in one place.
Plus developers will get users reviews for each version.

Yeah, I hope one day Apple will do it. Already thinking about "Dear Santa" style email for Mr. Cook.

If we went App Store we would definitely keep it available on our site as well (especially since we have a PC version).

+1.. I guess I'm still old school (2012).

BTW, the program looks great, I'll probably pick it up this week.

This is a great idea. Pop music today is filled with synths and I personally pay someone to help me program patches needed to do covers when I'm hired to do so. This would pay for itself very quickly if I could manage to learn enough from it!

Yeah, sorry about that. The purchased version is on a different server and is downloading at regular speeds. We're working on setting up a mirror for the Demo, so it's speeds should be back to normal soon.

Good! We just switched the demo to a different server so I'm glad to hear it's working properly.

Phew. Just finished the demo chapters.
Some tough (for presets junkie) challenges but overall learning curve is pretty good.

This is a really great program. Its fun, challenging and ive already become much better identifying sounds. I thought it was pricey but I feel like ive already got my moneys worth and I'm only about 1/4 of the way through the course.

well not a huge fan of this tutorial, I have found better stuff ( DMP tutorials for instance ), the thing is that you can get the sound so close, it's gonna tell you it's wrong, just because of one knob, and that just brings you useless frustrations, there's not one way to program a sound there are multiple ones and while the concept was nice, there's some limit to this in my opinion...

Great to see this is finally out!

I remember seeing it about a year ago (wasn't there already a very small demo?) and looking forward to this.

It does seem a bit pricey but thinking about it, all my synth plugs and vsts probably gain a whole different value for me once I start to get on top of them.

(sorry I sounded like a marketing guy...) But it's true!
