yeah i think trim really gives them a lot more depth with controlling the sound. the dry control, which was suggested by niknox for tube fm4, can be pretty useful too. trim, dry, and dist/drive together give a lot of control. that update was long overdue.
This is a huge set of improvements - loading times are quicker, the longer program titles are SO much easier to understand, the Trim control is perfect as I expected, but still getting the DIST control is even better.
I've also found the Dry control very useful for mixing in - what a great update this is, that turns an already excellent library into something even more creative, tweakable, yet easier to use
Tube FM 2 update will be released very soon, I'm uploading it now. The upload will take a few hours, and at that moment I'll send links out to everyone who bought the set. The main updates are just like those for Tube FM 1. If you have the set but don't get the update (again, it will be a few hours after this post), contact me!
Two different updates- Tube FM 1: One new effect is added to the set, sampled with Lynx Aurora. I was looking for things to sample with it, since I just got it. I picked the Bell tuner for the flat freq. responses I got from it before, and did another straight DI/DO sample (just like Bell DO4). In other words, no FM transmission, the signal was just sent straight in and straight back out. It took me a few days to get this right, but I think the results were definitely worth it.
The freq response is almost totally flat with this one, so this makes for one of those fairly subtle analogizers/enhancers, which is exactly what I wanted to get. I could still pick it out when processing full mixes with it, when switching from bypassed to on. It seemed to fatten things up around the bass area a little, very smooth. Effect is Bell DO5, and you can check out its graph in the manual (at the site).
UPDATE 2 is to Tube FM3. This one is part of the big over-haul where I've been going back and touching things up with these sets. The whole set is updated, but just the program files. Mainly, the category they were in is changed (separate for 44k and 96k now), to be more aligned with the format the other tube fm stuff has. Some other touches here and there to fix minor inconsistencies.
Then, there is a new effect added to Tube FM 3 also. Also sampled with lynx (not that it matters so much here). Mainly I did this to help justify bugging all the customers with the fairly minor update that just tweaks things that bugged me .
The new one is called 'stairwell', and I think it's as good as the others, at least.
I'm uploading all of this stuff right now, so it will take a while, but as soon as it's all up (or not too long after), I'll be sending out links to all who have these sets.
