It stops responding and outputting sound after actions like arpeggiator editing, changing preset or closing instance window. I think it's activated and there's no message about demo restrictions either. This on Reaper. However, since the problem it isn't going to be fixed by a developer update as this is no longer being updated, and others haven't reported it, I'll ignore it and focus on the synth as an instrument. Really a shame it doesn't work because if you like genres like House, Deep House and close genres, this is a really good all-rounder with the best bread n' butter presets I've heard and a clear, simple GUI to easily program your own patches. Not classic material imo. It's not analog but it is substractive, so it doesn't have the best of digital either. I'd put it in "supportive" synths among Roland Juno and Alpha Juno. Less personality than them, but oscillator and sound shaping-wise it's closer to JP8 so it justifies its' spot. Arpeggiator inclusion is a big plus too. And anyway, it's how you play it and effect it.

Sounds are rather non-music. Not suitable for musicians, at most maybe for DJs.

I don't share your opinion at all. I'm picky when it comes to presets but these are fantastic, essential classic bread 'n butter sounds for 90s to modern house and other melodic dance genres.

Too bad it is not possible to change size, not everyone is expert in coding to do this manually

Sounds cold, not possible to resize the default synth.

After reading comments it seems that you have to edit this ''xml'' file to resize the interface... Can someone please tell where this file can be located??

Try searching the VStation folders with search string ".xml". Be careful when you edit the xml, make sure you only edit the size, nothing else. In fact, even editing the screen size can cause some plugins to become unstable. Good luck!

One of the best and oldest. It's a K-Station for free. Novation makes good stuff. These sounds are as good as a Supernova, same oscillator. Learn to program before you complain. Listen to the 500 presets that come with it, then start making your own if you don't like them. Sheesh. Why are you running 32-bit anyway? My home computer was running 64-bit OS twenty years ago. Where have you been? Also, as others suggest, use the installer. This is VST3 if you would bother looking.

Correction: V-Station comes with 200 presets and 300 more initialized, all editable.

Ok, seeing a lot of people asking how to resize the plugin. Unless you edit its xml file and resize all the images it uses, you can't. The plugin is a legacy plugin and comes from a time that predates higher resolutions and 1027x768 was more commonly used

Guys, read the description... bigger version is possible only by using a skin. Sound is decent!

Unfortunate that it loads with a garbaged up GUI, makes no sound is largely useless. Ableton 10.1.4/catalina os

No Novation please. It's a nice thing to give us something free, but then I expect f r e e and without license. The second thing is: Novation does as when they are musical profis, oh no, they don't. Examples for stuff for real musicians are Roland, Yamaha, Korg.

You need to edit the xml file that came with it and use a paint program to resize all the images the plugin uses

Can anyone tell how to resize the standart version or it is possible only with skin?

Only if you know how to edit xml files and resize the images in a paint program. This plugin wasn't designed to be resized

want to get blind? get this synth! but seriously - dear developers, please, think about the end user. Interface is too small, it is not possible to see anything.

This is NOT a good old virtual analog synth! There is no warmth in the sounds.

Die Sounds gefallen mir nicht, das Aussehen nicht und die Parameterauswahl auch nicht. Die Geschmeidigkeit und Vollkommenheit von mit Roland- und Korggeräten hat mich wohl zu sehr verwöhnt :(

Sounds are decent, however it is very discouraging to try to do any sound design here since it is impossible to resize the GUI unless you want to damage your eye-sight.

Lovelessly compiled parameters, cold distilled sound like brittle plastic, not to my liking. Also would have preferred a dll file.

I agree with Fred. And another point is: Often a synth sounds good, but the Surface is horrible. Here it is vice versa.

A legacy synth from Novation. The sound engine is very old-school: UK Rave, old-school jungle and "Orbital" vibes, that is 1990s. The synth has "Extra" tab with very interesting "FM Level" knob, so you can make presets kinda FM-agressive with metallic dubstep raunch. Very good set of built-in presets as well. The only flaw is blotched installment procedure: you got to install the synth via all this *.exe tedium, then register online. Worth of tedious procedure anyway, a decent old-school synth.

No, it doesn't worth it.. None of them does.. Give us dll or bust ;)
anon Nov 06 2022

To make this a dll only the plugin would have to be completely rewritten as it depends on external files that are installed elsewhere and considering how old the plugin is, it's just not worth doing so you either install it through it's exe file as intended by the devs from day one or miss out
