My favorite Synthesizer as of November 29th, 2020
quakemazer, 30.11.2020
This is absolutely the best sounding vst synth I've ever owned.

I own Komplete 12 (Reaktor, Massive and X, Absynth 5, Form, etc...), Synthmaster 2.9 and One, Vital, Thorn, Diva, and less popular synth vstis.

I reach for Dune 3 first because to my ear, the results are just incredibly inspiring. Watch a few youtube videos by Kevin Schroeder to get an idea of this beast.

Read the manual and check out Venus Theory's Dune 3 videos and you'll be designing gorgeous pads and leads in no time.

The onboard FX are premium, better than many specialized vst FX plugins. There are 1000 presets and they're fantastic.

The filters are widely regarded as the best available and sound amazing to me.

The only drawbacks are:
1. The preset browsing is outdated. I just save a copy of my favorites presets in my own folder.
2. Can be heavy on CPU with extremely complex patches. Worth it!

If I could only own one synth it would be Dune 3 because it sounds beautiful with very little effort, and can be made to sound otherworldly once you start to understand how to design sounds with it.

Best buy of the year
Rafaaaaa, 09.12.2020
The sound quality of this synth brutal, many times compared to hardware. I agree with those who do. It is definitely a workhorse.

The FX section is very good to. I'd wish it had a FX version, as all FX are automatable and can be modulated from the matrix.

The only "if" is that it has too much happening on the LCD section, but it's nothing that makes the synth cumbersome to program, as you can use the right mouse button menu to add modulation sources, it saves some clicking, as it adds both modulation sides and opens the modulation matrix in one go.

Dune = Differential Unison Engine
dizzl, 31.10.2019
DUNE ist durchaus vielseitig. Das besondere an diesem Synth sind allerdings seine Fähigkeiten in Sachen Oscillator Voices und Unison. Aktuell sind die gebotenen Möglichkeiten m. W. einzigartig. Synth Choirs, VOX Sounds und natürlich vor Allem auch wirklich breite, vielschichtige Pads mit Charakter sind im Handumdrehen erstellt.

Dank seiner verschiedenen Oszillatoren und insb, auch Wavetable nebst Harmonics Editor mit 1024 (!) Partials kann er sich gerade auch in der "digitalen Domäne" sehr gut behaupten. Ich bin wirklich begeistert.

Man kommt auch wirklich schnell zu guten Ergebnissen und kann tatsächlich sehr gut "additiv" arbeiten.

Kurz zum WT-Editor: sehr Benutzerfreundich, der Konkurrenz gleich auf. Der Import/Export von Wavetables klappt perfekt, klanglich gestalten sich die Ergebnisse besser als auf dem allseits bekannten Original [...] und man kann duchaus auch selbst Hand anlegen, der WT-Editor lädt geradezu dazu ein.

Sein Klang ist "eigen" - er hat Charakter, das mag ich - und er erinnert (mich) an die Novation V-Station [...]. Die Effekte liegen klanglich deutlich über dem Durchschnitt, insb. der EQ sagt mir persönlich sehr zu. Ich schwanke insgesamt aber zwischen 4 und 5 Punkten - der Klangcharakter scheint recht fest gefügt und ist gelegentlich vielleicht zu "perfekt" - womit wir auch beim Thema "Punktabzug" angekommen sind.

Visualisierung der LFOs (Diode)? Globaler Effekt-Bypass? Eine oder mehrere WT in eine gespeicherte WT einfügen (zB Copy > laden > paste) bzw. insgesamt die Sortierung/Verwaltung von WT (Clipboard)? Vertikales Zoom für Harmonics Editor? Es gibt durchaus noch Potenzial für Updates.

Alles in Allem möchte ich diesen Synth jedem ans Herz legen, der digitale Klänge und insbesondere Pads und VOX-Sounds mag und sucht. Seine "analoge" Seite habe ich nie getestet, dazu kann ich nichts sagen. Seine digitalen Stärken sind für mich - einem Freund der additiven Synthese - allerdings "atemberaubend" (ich mache übrigens ausschließlich Sound Design und das sehr leidenschaftlich).

Dank DUNE spare ich viel viel Zeit und habe eine zuvor nicht gekannte - benutzerfreundliche - Kontrolle über das harmonische Spektrum und seine Amplituden. Die Ergebnisse sind sehr zufriedenstellend. Ich würde allerdings meinen, dass es andere Nutzungsinteressen betreffend und die Konkurrenz berücksichtigens durchaus noch "Luft nach oben" gibt, wenn auch DUNE dadurch keinesfalls uninteressant wird. Er ist ziemlich charakterstark.

Super synthé virtuel
DJ Ridou, 01.03.2021
Utilisé en VST sous cubase 10,5 / win 10, l'installation est un jeu d'enfant, la licence s'enregistre en quelques clicks.
Ce synthé est énorme et sonne énorme, les possibilités sont immenses, il surclasse sans problème nos bons vieux synthés VA hardware, mais je dois avouer que je ne le comprends pas encore entièrement. La construction de certains sons reste encore nébuleuse parfois, il faut un peu de temps pour le maitriser vraiment et faire le tour de ses possibilités tant il est riche de ce côté là. Les sonorités couvrent tous les territoires sonores avec une prédilection pour les sons trance/EDM/ techno, mais on peut tout faire avec.
Piloté gràce à une interface midi externe type bcr2000, le "midi learn" est un régal et l'affectation des commandes physiques au paramètres du synthé se fait quasiment instantanément.
Super synthé donc à gros potentiel, il sonne gros et fort, les possibilités de synthèses semblent infinies !
