Have to agree - that there are a lot, probably TOO MANY, caveats from Roland with this plug-in and this is v1.0.3, so they've done two (minor) updates/patches since my Jan look at it.

Even with those issues if this thing SOLD for a more reasonable $60'ish +/- ballpark I might pull trigger just to have a Sound Canvas GM/GS plug-in (even though it does duplicate my external HW) and even though I have multiple GM compliant and a few not so compliant plugin's.

I ALWAYS sketch out songs using GM - I found I was getting side tracked at inspiration time fiddling with this bass or that EP or B3 or this muted trumpet. and by time I was done I was trouble shooting PC technical issues, or plugin in quirks, or external HW menu settings, or multiple device volume matching, or EQ or .... I was too easily distracted!

Changing topics: I'd love to see Ketron take their SD-2 ROM and put a VST2 or 3 wrapper around it and sale that as a GM VSTi! I'd BUY it.

I'd also like to see PG investigate with Ketron to sell these SD-2 HW units direct right here as well.

I think these GM HW modules which almost the last dedicated GM HW modules available would be an ideal partner with Band-In-a-Box. Especially now that Roland quite making GM HW modules (SC's and SD's) which PG use to sell.

Larry -

PGMusic used to sell the Ketron SD-2 units on their website (I think Mac got that going with them). I'm not sure why they stopped.

Yeah, I think you got the price about right to really sell them.

Colly

related item:

if you have or get free Sampletank version 2.5 eSoundz has one of their many sales and the GM add in for ST 2 OmniSynth 2 is once again on sale for $5 US (along with ALL Sampletank 2 sound bank add-ins)


https://www.esoundz.com/sounds/omnisynth-2-sampletank-expansion/4736.html

also while the individual GM instruments in the library WORK in Sampletank 3 - Omnisynth 2 will NOT function as a GM bank

Good Luck
