    thansk!

    and very true. another great one is eat a big slimey cheesy mexican burrito and then start working on a track. you have very limited time before your pants explode...so forces you to work super fast.

    I found a reasonably lengthy and interesting review here:

    For anyone that is using a NI Komplete keyboard, do the knobs automatically map to the S8?

    After tinkering with it some more, used voucher and picked up. I liked how easy and fast it is to get decent sounds out of it. NI did a good job with that GUI.

    Absolutely. One observation though: Viewing the modulation sources is a little pain, because for each parameter you have to first click the destination in the MOD ROUTING section and then click that parameter to reveal the modulation sources for that parameter.

    I hope there is a way to improve it through an update.

    Yes, there's already a way to change that. Click on the padlock button to the right of the mod routing menu, and now whatever synth parameter you select will be in focus immediately, no need to visit the Mod Routing section at all.

    Damn, looks like I misinterpreted that part in the manual and did not unlock it. Glad to know that option is there, thank you for the enlightenment. :)

    Loving this synth. Very fast to work with and capable of creating some really cool and diverse sounds. Now that I have got familiar with Super 8, it's time to create something with it.

    Hello, I recently purchased Super 8 and I'm loving it so far. I programmed some sounds and the modulation possibilities offer a great new take on classic polysynths.

    The effects are great too, except maybe for the chorus which I find lacks a bit of personality and is too transparent, but I own a Juno 106 so I must be spoiled :)

    I noticed a small bug when using it with Komplete Kontrol. The mapped Pitch Mod controls are not correct, as instead of showing Speed and Delay, it shows Attack and Decay and the knobs don't do anything when turned.

    Another NI plugin not fully working in Maschine due to lack of aftertouch support
