I think 2013 has been a really bad music year... no 4.5 or 5 star releases  only some 4 stars for me..

Steve Roach & Byron Metcalf - Tales From The Ultra Tribe - 01 setting forth

well let me guess, another super flexible product with terrible sound quality...
usually that is the way... it is not often both worlds meet together.

I cant fathom how you have an opinion about this metal frame and keyboard when it hardly makes a sound and one that you have not heard, unless you mean that NI soft synths have a terrible sound quality and this man has something to do with the creation of that company so......???  Did you actually read the quote or go to website.  It is the "idea" of something that is one of the most powerful forces on this planet. Its usually simple in essence and can often be extraordinary in completion.

I look it into a more historic context.. how much synths does really sound good ? and is anything special ?
Most digital synths sounds the same average sound...  If it is analogue digital hybrid I would very happy...
Yes please to Analogue OSCs and Filters.  If not it will probably sound just like any other synth out there.
But we will see..the odds are still low...I have seen so many new synths hyped over the years..same hype.. usually always amazing in all ways, good to use and perform with but always lack the good sound. Luckily you can get even a crap sounding synth to sound good with an extensive effect chain that is basically my approach.  If I had a bigger budget to spend on synths I would probably had preferred to use more analogue or hardware synths.

can confirm it made a dramatic difference.. I can now for the first time use lush-101 fully..
I was first disappointed but be sure to check the "multi core support" in settings.

Thanks a lot scott for telling me..otherwise I have probably been using this version for some months now.

I did see on their site that a recent update for Lush allows it to run using two cores now. I use Bidule so that may not help me there but it would definitely help in a stand-alone mode.

very good news! :)
think if all vsts could use multiple cores, then there would not be much of an cpu problem...

Well it is a multi-layered synth architecture, so a big patch can be like running up to 8 synths at the same time, with multiple effects. You gotta expect some strain on the system under those conditions. (its a bit like Omnisphere in that regard) But it is a beauty for sure, and it can easily be used with fewer OSC's and effects. And it does have such an excellent, and big interface. 8) It is one of the best straight-forward analog-like subtractive software synths I've tried. I'll probably pick up a copy this weekend.

I wonder if they use parts of the toraverb code in the lush-101, will experiment to disable it and see if it makes a huge difference to disable the effects.

Well, It is good that they do not compromise the audio..I am just telling...
it is one of the most cpu heavy soft synths I have ever tried..but it might also explain why it sound better then most..

I am little bit disappointing with Waldorf Largo..not much has happen with it for a long time...I think it had a lot of potential..they did promise that they will add more filters from the Q family.

The main problem with it is that it sounds too thin...but very clean...
Just too bad they do not put more resources into it.
Also strange to see that their Q family is not even in their product family anymore... only the blofield.. So I wonder what the future for Waldorf really is..they released mostly disappointments in the last few years.. just budget products...but not much high end which put technology forward.

Thanks APK. Judging from the demos, Lush-101 has a great analog sound. When I look around for reviews there's always mention about the large CPU needs. Probably great for the studio but (like Iris) touchy for multi-synth live use. Still tempting...

Some people will probably think I am craazy, but Lush-101 was probably one of the main reasons I sold my Oberheim Xpander.
The filters are awesome... the only problem is... it use a lot of cpu...
you really need to have the LATEST intel cpu for it...
I have the first Core i7 generation (920) overclocked from 2.6GHZ to 3.5 GHZ
still not enough. Even some presets in low quality mode is too much

I'm usually not the biggest Oophoi fan but I already love some of his posthumous work, particularly this and I Can Hear The Wing Singing. I think both of those are AOTY candidates.

Oophoi's music is hard to get into.

If I would recommend you two albums it would be Forgotten Rituals and  Signals From the Great Beyond (1cd version)
