Small presentation of the animal to avoid receiving emails of questions:

The Plugiator (whether as a nightclub like the photo or card keyboard CME ASX) is essentially a "mini computer".
No Windows, Mac OS or Linux within, a particular system that is merely exploiting a processor in order to "calculate" digital audio.
The Plugiator is a host for plugins, but plugins only owner: no VST, AU or RTAS, Audio only those of Use.

This development may seem superfluous, but now that the "VST" are available, some confused.
The "new" provided by VST Use Audio are really just remotes that can be used as plugins. What is important is to consider that these individuals do not produce any VST sound and Plugiator that needs to be connected to the sequencer's audio outputs in addition to the USB or MIDI.

That said, let's shelling of the animal.

The Plugiator, in its box "desktop" is a synthesis module VA, FM-based PCM waveforms.
The control surface is basic: a handful of digital encoders sometimes notched with a secondary function in push-push and some smarties gray share the table. Is stripped and helps design a little stiff from the machine.
The connection is too spartan: USB, MIDI in and out, two audio outputs in TS 1 / 4 (stereo), an input jack for a microphone (no preamp, so we forget the static that require phantom power) and c That is all.
The display is in the spirit "of the 70 high-tech" means a group of LED alphanumeric. It is far from the modern color screens, high definition, even the touch of Roland ...

This recount is justified for two main reasons that fall under the same philosophy of Plugiator: first prize still available and especially the sedentary vocation module closely associated with the tool and the software editor plugins.

In the version I currently 8 plugins are available:
<ul>

MINIMAX: an emulation of Mini Moog

</ul>

<ul>

LIGHTWAVE: a wavetable synthesizer

</ul>

<ul>

B4000: an organ drawbars

</ul>

<ul>

VOCODIZER or VOCTOR: a multi-band vocoder

</ul>

<ul>

PRODISSEY: an emulation of the ARP Odyssey

</ul>

<ul>

PRO-12: SCI Prophet emulation

</ul>

<ul>

FMagia: FM synthesizer

</ul>

<ul>

Drum'n'Bass: a module of percussion and bass

</ul>

The quality of each plugin is undeniable, it is actually many synths from the development of Creamware.
Since the last update (end 2009) graphical interfaces are somewhat better for some, similar to others, but still fairly rudimentary in design.

I am a strong supporter of the plugins in general, whether freeware or large productions such Native Instruments and IK Multimedia. I also like the outsiders, such as products or OhmForce Audio Damage. Obviously the virtual is my thing (well, I do not spit on a good hardware eq either) ...

With this I am filled Plugiator.
Good dynamic output, its thick and malleable, programming and more complete integration of VST. It's really good equipment. A little video to get an official idea:
