    FYI, there is a long strand on the KVR forum that says that some PC users have found Cypher2 to be a CPU hog. More specifically they have found that it uses more and more RAM as they change patches. This was first reported by a guy using Windows 7 (Cypher2 requires 10), but then some Windows 10 people reported the same problem. People love the synth, though.

    Wondering if VEP6 would help with CPU.

    That sounds like a memory leak which is a fixable bug.

    I can understand developers abandoning 32 bit, but this is a Vst no? Why is it Win 10 only?

    This is one fun synth! I already loved Strobe, and now this! It's been a good year for MPE:dancer:
  7. With this and AURAS I'm using the seaboard loads at the moment. Really well-made synth & some fantastic presets. Need to dig deep into the synth engine but this should keep me busy while zebra 3 gets finished...

    I spent the last few days demoing Cypher2 and finally bought it last night. I'm really happy with how well I've been able to get my existing Kontakt libraries and synths to play on the Seaboard, but there's something to be said for libraries and instruments designed with the Seaboard in mind.
