Image-Line Autogun VSTi

VST Cafe seems finally up so it's time for some music action ;) About a month ago, Image-Line has released their newest synth called Autogun. Autogun is freeware and it shares the same additive synthesis engine as commercial Image-Line Ogun plugin. Autogun offers 4294967296 (over four billion :D) presets with very nice acoustic and overall, realistic metallic timbres. Of course it's not possible to check all presets because, according to IL math, it would take you 134 years ;)

That's why every Autogun has it's own, unique preset start number, so that each member of the team is assigned a personal starting address, ready to explore. However, you can at any time, jump to a new location in the preset-space by simply entering a preset number. Once a prized sound is discovered, and it's preset number logged, you can share it with outher Autogun users or even import it's bigger brother - Ogun.

Autogun is very nice plugin, mostly suited for hmm preset whores ;) No synth programming skills are required, there are almost no knobs, just presets, presets, presets :)

But there are downsides too. Autogun seems buggy - it's very unstable especially on Sample Rates bigger than 44.1 kHz. Also it's better to stop playing when switching presets. But that's not the end - due to long releases, reverbs etc. CPU can be pretty heavily loaded. Luckily there's processing quality option (5 modes) which sets the interpolation but to be honest I use just two: draft and average.

So, as you can see it's not perfect but overall I like the concept a lot. I like the idea of sharing presets, finding them somewhere, every user starts with different presets - it may be hmm funny :)

It says that it's influenced by Nasca Paul's PADsynth algorithms - so fans, especially those running Linux, might find checking out ZynAddSubFX and whysynth useful, since both contain a PADsynth implementation. So might people like me, whose CPU quickly runs off into a corner and sulks...

thanks for your comments :)

Holy Shit!

Sorry, it is not "a very nice plugin", but it's a useless plugin. Who needs 4 billion presets? I've checked about 1000 (!) presets - only about 50 of them are useful and the rest? Forget it! Don't waste your time with this plugin!

Please, give a comment again, when you've been finished, clicking all the 4 billion presets.

what's wrong with great variety :) i like autogun pretty much, i always find a sound that fits in no time. the only question would be if the processing quality only influences the sound while working with it or also when rendering it to mp3? couldn't hear any difference yet.
