There is one thing I forgot to write in the manual, in the upper left corner above oscillator one there are 2 knobs and a button.

the two knobs are labeled "Start" and "Ratio".

These two knobs only affect key scaling as a modulator and nothing else.

If you use key scaling as a modulator you can use these two knobs to determine where keyscaling will start and how intense the scaling will be from key to key.

The button labeled "Pitch Tracking" will de-activate pitch tracking and make all keys play as #60/C3.

Thats the only thing left out of the manual, sorry.

I'm also getting the error. The synth loads but I wonder if those 5000+ samples help it sound better

I get this error when I load the ensemble: "Some external samples cannot be found (6220 remain missing). Would you like to locate /C/Documents and Settings/Chuck/My Documents/Reaktor 5/Wavelets/simpleset/andutypulse.wav now?"

Thanks. This synth has a very good sound. Sounds like reaktor lazerbas. Many snapshots. But maybe too many nearly alike, and in a certain genre. Varity lacks. That said, then it should not stop anyone in trying this synth. Some will maybe think the many snapshots with small variation is awesome, because it's usefull in some musical genrers.

Incredible work! Huge amount of presets (of very high quality), well crafted GUI, WOW!. That's true that people often charge for stuff inferior in quality. Thanks again for sharing..

1.0 is the right version, my internet connection dropped out on me during the first upload and I had to edit the text twice after uploading, the UL automatically adds a .1 to the version count even if you don't change anything. Aries V1.0 is the proper and only version. Mike

Fantastic, this is crazy! Just did not like the reverb, compressor and the almost infinite number of modulations routings. The design that permeates skin seems that the environment has left more confused, I think the spaces at the top were underutilized. It's just my opinion and you need not consider anything I said anyway, I love the synth! translators are translators, I hope you understand what I meant.
