Ekstasis:: Yep, you are right, Lush is a very fine synth, looks great too. I've owned it for a few years. Great for layering and also for rhythmic/arp things.

Another fine sounding newer VA synth is the xils PolyKB. You might like this one. Just came out with v2. I'm tempted.




Video is of the earlier version.

I am glad you like the lush synth. I agree it a very good looking synth, I think D16 does probably the most realistic looking plugins, they look fucking awesome.

I tried the xils PolyKB, but never version 2.  From what I rember it was buggy the first one ?

Recorded in 2008. Would sound good with some Berlin school sequencer.  If someone own a  sequencer feel free or add my track.  Would be very happy to hear.

Impressive Minimoog D and virtual Moog shoot out.....the note for note comparison nulled each other out but I heard a difference in the melodic performance pieces, the Model D was brighter with a tad more punch and presence at least to my ears.  Splitting hairs really.

I uploaded my track on soundcloud, it sounds like crap there, I thought soundcloud had good sound, but it sounds really bad, it sounds like 128kbps or something.

https://soundcloud.com/solyaris84/ekstasis-drifting-in-lost-time

Soundcloud is 128k. 

If you want better quality, try the new service called Orfium.  320k stream.  Embedable player.  It's free to use.

https://www.orfium.com/

128kbps is such a big joke what is this is this 1999 or something lol ?
when I did begin to listen to mp3s between 1997-and 1999 128kbps was the standard then in 2000  all mp3s become 192 kbps, around 2003 all albums started using VBR.

Why cant they atleast use VBR ?  128 kbps cbr is such insult to the music imo.
I think their neat interface where you see the soundwaves in details etc gives an illussion that soundcloud somehow offer better
sound quality then all others.

Regarding orfium, it have no android app, or even IOS app, I think most people use soundcloud thru respective mobile app.

Might as well buy the software and map a controller to it, lot cheaper than the hardware and sounds the same !

Doing a fast google search it seem that this one is the best VA VST right  I Will give a try, hopefully cpu usage is not horrible.
One of my other favorite vst synth is d16 lush 101, have you tried that one APK ?

listening to your music I think it would fit your "smooth and panoramic soundscape.
It is one of the best synth for ambient I think, (only sounds good when you switch the highest quality mode). It did eat up my cpu before but they released a multicore optimization which made extreme improvement.

Would have to be - Time Cage from 62 Eulengasse - Namlook / Inoue.

As a back up would also have the mighty Tangs - Phaedra or Rubycon  ;)
