Hands down the best synth that I've found for linux. takes some tinkering and has a learning curve(but you should expect that if you're trying to use linux for music).
Wonderful piece of application having a lot of assure.
fantastic project !
nice work. quick replies from the developer too. I'm not much for emulations of real synthesizers, but the variations from the originals and quirkyness of some of these sounds are worth investigating at the very least. Bristol is linux only. Otherwise you can buy the arturia series and run those on a bloated operating system, whichever floats your boat.
