BrainModular Usine 1
-Installation: Put simply, we can not. It's like Mac OS X.
-I have no problems of incompatibility of any kind, be it with my Shuttle or my Mac book Pro (windows of course)
-Configuration is very simple. It is pre-configured to try the demo.
-The manual is well done, quite funny also.

Computer config: motherboard Shuttle / AMD Proc 4000 what to cellar, 64-bit / 1 GB Ram / Seagate 7500 T, 250 GB / Soundcards RME Fireface and hammerfall (config Pretty big, actually)
-It works perfectly.
-I rarely go down to 95% of CPU resources that are allowed, and yet I Gave patches. I use it in the studio or live like a big rack of effects and I use it to add sound to a group of seven musicians, I manage equalization, compression, effects, mixing 5.1 and mixing with the returns quoted above config .
- It's extremely stable. Never crashes

I use it for almost a year.
-What I like most is the quality of the audio engine, the mixer and management of the afternoon to remote controls and automation, that develops patches Senso amazing and different, and it welcomes VST plug-ins. The only thing boring is that I have to bang my Windows to use it.
Value _ maximum price.

BrainModular Usine 1

Mac Book Pro.

The day before yesterday evening in Avignon, the first concert of our project "Rockingchair" with trumpeter Airelle Besson.
All effects were monitored and controlled via plant (on my Mac Book Pro and Windows) by Gilles Olivesi.
AuCu Plantade, perfection.
Senso thank you.

- The installation is done it without problems?
Not even to install.
It unzips into a folder and is ready to go.

- Have you experienced any incompatibilities?

- The general configuration is easy?
Very easy (it is a software developed for musicians).

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
The manual is clear. These are the tutorials that are missing.

- What is the configuration of your computer?
Dell laptop, RME Multiface ...

- The software works he correctly on this configuration?
I mean, yes.

- This software + hardware is stable?
Everything is very stable. This is done to live, do not laugh, there ...

- How long have you use it?
A little over a year

- What is so special that you like most and least?
I feel able to discuss with any confidence. My imagination does not have to zigzag between lots of stuff infeasible. Only the CPU is the limit.
Sound of the highest quality, frankly.
The sense of security. Facility provides. No bad surprise as I was able to meet with a shovel in others I will not name here.
The more the most is that I'm having to make music with sophisticated stuff that I was not asked to advanced knowledge or years of practice like Max MSP and Reaktor.

Not attractive to watch, not skinnable. A detail in my opinion, because the pleasure of music is aileurs on the screen of a laptop.
At first, I have a moment to understand the meileur party to draw, when to use a VST, when I make a patch, how to combine all the possibilities ... I agree that it's so unique, no way to learn it other than factory. It's a bit hard at first.
Also, I think too few people use it (but I feel that it is changing), the far too few people working on its development, once you fall from time to time of bugs. Fortunately, as soon as they are reported to Sensomusic, a new release is being downloaded. They fight like lions.
I am appreciative.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
A package, yes. Quite a package. Little is said of plant, few people know and nobody told me: Is that what you want is there (in addition, the demo is functional as much as you want). I lost a lot of time and energy before Factory, too.

- How would you rate the quality / price?
I think the real price, it should be ... well, I am silent.
Say which is sold at the price the license is given. I think it's clear enough?

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Direct and without wasting a second.

Installation? It's simple: it is the easiest thing to install I've ever seen! You download a compressed file, decompresses it, and Ouali! The idea is that plant can be installed on a USB stick or other portable device, and can therefore be used on any bike like it was our personal workstation.
Configuration very easy to do: choose the audio interface, you set two or three things (record files of audio file vst, MIDI) and it's over.
The manual is particularly clear, educational, rigorous and extremely organized. The bad thing is it is still and always in English. And the complexity of certain concepts and certain situations (but not due to plant certain uses) is sometimes a handicap. Fortunately, the site's forum is here (in English again, grrrr) and especially the author which can be contacted directly by mail!

I tried it on a Pentium 4 with XP and Ozonic and 1gig of RAM.
The only bugs I encountered were due to new features that came out and that had not been run by users on many machines. Of releases came out quickly to make adjustments.
Performance depends only on your machine. In addition to plant constantly adapting to latest technology (it was among the first software to manage the dual core, Vista, 64bit, etc). On my bike, I loaded with many factory VST everywhere, so it rowed a little, but my stuff is not the first youth ...
But other than that it is particularly stable

I first used the free version, but the author was once quietly removing features, which forced me to buy the pro version. Well, that's fair enough, I still began to use it in concert. Presently I saw my needs down and I have another configuration. I just let this software until the next version vst so, and there I was delighted as it gave me the tracks reopened unexplored!
What I like most is his omnipotence. To my knowledge, the only software that allows to go as far and as directly (and therefore by that I zap all that is Max, which calls for reinventing the wheel each time). We can connect everything with everything, make the computer a real musical partner, or be confined to functions very simple vst host. There is a playful side that appears as soon as we embarked on the construction of a new system and that's very exciting.
Things that I dislike? Besides the interface is damn confusing at first, but it is after a time, some things still lack flexibility found in soft drinks major brands. But it is still anecdotal (like saving a trick with a new name, which can not remove the old via software, but only through windows, provided to close plant otherwise not refresh its record of stuff like that ...)
The value for money is exceptional, especially with the free vst version is dynamite Treats! And 50 euros is not death if you want to afford the pro version!
With experience, if I again need the pro version, well yeah not hesitate!
