KarmaFX Synth Modular 1.0 / Modular Synthesizer

After years of development, testing and tweaking, the final version 1.0 of KarmaFX Synth Modular is finally ready! The project started back in 1998, so it has been a long journey. Thanks go out to the people who supported KarmaFX with testing, feature suggestions, patches, comments and donations during these past years!
With this release, KarmaFX Synth Modular is converted from Donationware to Shareware. This means that it is now available in two versions :

  • A Demo version, free for trial use. It times-out and has limited save and update capabilities.
  • A Full Registered version, that comes with extra patches, skins and a User's manual.
  • Made the Registered and the Demo version branches.
  • Finished the User's manual for the Registered version and placed it in the "KarmaFX_Synth\Manual" subfolder.
    A shortcut is placed in the Windows Start menu on installation.
  • GUI: Added a new slick looking "Blue" skin to the Registered version.
  • Added an extra patch bank to the Registered version (Bonus Bank 1).
  • Temporarily disabled uninstaller in the Registered version due to a technical issue.
  • Reordered and created a bunch of new patches.
    The Demo version expires February, 2007.
