    Thumbs up Re: Should i go for this bargain - Absynth 3

    Fantastic synth, inspirational, great control of envelopes. Capable of moving, swirling soundscapes and atmospheres, but also capable of analogish sounding things as well as alien, percussive sounding things and sounds that almost have an alien acoustic quality to them. Also capable of rhythmic percussive, beat oriented things.

    In Absynth 3 I think the new gui is much better organized.

    What else...

    Well, almost always when I fire up Absynth I find myself tweaking and feeling inspired. I think it's a wonderful synth that has a very rich, professional sound to it. But do note... this is just one opinion of one person.

    Hi seq, Thanks for the reply.
    I did order it today...
    i've based my opinion on Your post and the info on the NI's website... and on the price... 60% discount it's something that i can afford.
    I will also get Cubase SL2 -> SL3 upgrade for 70% of the retail price

    so tomorrow will be a fine day for my DAW

    So are you going to tell us where to get Absynth 3 for $40 off? Because I'd definitely buy it.

    I'm affraid that You won't be happy. It was a local Polish music store and they ocassionally have this kind of bargains for one piece of some soft if they can't sell it. So they mail me then because they know that this kind of bargain is the thing i can afford sometimes

    Excellent! It's always 'iffy' giving out advice as something that rocks for one person might not for someone else. But it seemed like you can't go wrong with Absynth!

    I have the Komplete 2 bundle so they sent me Ab3 when it came out...I didn't listen to the presets in surround sound or preview for more than about 15 min. but from what I could tell for the most part the presets seemed to be atmospheric slow attacking swirling/panning kind of stuff and as American Idol's Simon would say "If I'm being honest" I think I would turn to Spectrasonic's Atmosphere for this kind of stuff before Ab3 BUT I didn't get through all the presets yet so I may just find something cool in the higher numbered presets and there is a TON of presets from earlier versions that I love so if you get it and feel the same as I do as of now...Download the other presets and give it a whirl....It's definitely a great one to have in your library....

    Just my .02: both Absynth 3 and Atmosphere are incredible instruments. I wouldn't like to be without any of them!

    Cheers, Robert
