Default Arturia Synclavier 2 free upgrade

Well we finally got a version 2 upgrade to Synclavier and they added in something that was an option on the original hardware synth - sampling/resynthesis! And it's a free upgrade.

However with not every cloud has a silver lining. There's a couple of bugs. The first is the up/down cursor keys on your computer keyboard only work for a couple of times and then they quit. I'm talking if you go to the screen where the patches/categories/etc. are listed. Before when you had a patch selected you could use the up/down cursor keys on the computer keyboard to go however far up or down the list. Doesn't work right at least in OSX. Second bug is if you watch the approx. 7 minute tutorial video on YouTube that explains the new sample/resynthesis features the presenter says he's going to try some of the patches that use samples. There is a category named 'samples' that you can see in the video and that does not exist in the downloaded version we have.

This one is a personal beef and that it that the manual section explaining the new features could do with a better explanation of how things work and how to use them.

The update is available in their Service Center application. There's also a bunch of updates for most of the other synths except for the Piano vi. Don't know what those all cover as I just wanted to get my hands on the Synclavier. Having played an original it's nice to see the sampling/resynthesis here.

That's above my pay grade.


BTW I worked out the changed amounts of patches between the original Synclavier and the Synclavier two. I also worked how what patches use samples. See this thread over on the Arturia forums: https://forum.arturia.com/index.php?....msg151729#new
I go by my ham radio callsign there N2MPU

That upgrade price from VC5 to VC6 was insane; hopefully it'll come down. I know the upgrade price from VC4 to VC5 eventually came down to $99 which is what I paid for it on January 9 2017 after the initial release of VC5 on May 19 2016 which is about 8 months. VC6 was released December 6 2017 so according to that timeline we're overdue for a drastic price drop in the upgrade price. Right now my upgrade price is $249 coming from VC5. Like Crazy Eddie (old TV pitchman in the US from back in the day) used to say: 'These prices are insane!!!!!!!!!!!'
