HG Fortune STS - 26 is a very in depth virtual hybrid synth and I have enjoyed every minute of using since I purchased it about 3 years ago. The ability to do all my editing and shaping the sounds the way that I want them makes it so easy with HG Fortune STS - 26. I love the layout of it so much, that’s probably what keeps me hooked on it, the layout makes everything so easy. There are few software vst’s that I can say make it easy for me to edit my sounds and have total control over everything with ease and HG Fortune STS - 26 happens to be one of those vst plug ins that allows me to do so.
Setting it up was pretty quick and easy. The load time was minimal and its very light on my cpu on all of my machines. The more that I use this plug in the more that I end up finding out about it. You can really do anything you can imagine with STS - 26. It may take some time to understand how to get into depth with it if you are new to programming and working with vst’s. but you will be able to starting using it right away and playing around with the presets and start turning knobs and sliders to get some cool effects and sounds.
The sound and preset selection is pretty solid, I do wish they had some more presets though. I think the Bass presets could be a little deeper. They could have created some more pads as well too, but since I know how to program on this vst pretty good, its easy for me to create almost whatever I want now.
Overall, its great if your into tweaking presets and molding sounds and programming sounds the way that you want. If you are into just using presets, then I think you will get pretty bored pretty quickly and you will run out of sounds in no time.

Welcome! I must say first that I HGFortune Discoveries products only three months ago and I won t IMMEDIATE. I'm not a musician but only crateur moods for my personal pleasure (read my review Rapture). I gots the trs Varis electro music but I have a soft spot for minimalist music and moods (like Brian Eno and companies) and products easily Fortune j'obtient atmosphere res abroad, deep and rich. Although I am now a huge fan, I must admit that I to order their products to pass through Share * it * Fully automated service. If problem can not be sent an email a human being. Everything done by choice questions limits amnent rponse a pr program. I d APRS purchase, contact Fortune to ask a question, and even the it was a maze to find the service. I have been waiting 10 days rponse another question and I'm starting to have doubts the right place. the image of their VST mystrieux and they are difficult to ACCS. The STS 26, which I love, is not easy m'aitriser several features that seem simple, do not ncessairement, by manipulating the rsultats expected. I think this may be tables of wave complexes departure. The manual in English, in short, does not help his vraimment comprhension. As if his crateur believed that silent ct him when he cr. But in love all is forgiven!
No compatibility problems with my computer. I see a technician who set up everything for me. I have 3 g. of RAM memory and I work with Sonar 6 home studio. L s'arrte my knowledge.
You wonder why an opinion on the STS 26 APRS so long and especially its release just before the release of the STS 33, his successor. Error! It is difficult to know the products of Fortune. First you must know that all their VST is available as freeware, with certain limitations as the wave number, and note the programe. But apart from that they are parfaitemment oprationels. I acquired Umbra, Protoplasm, Swamp, STS 21, STS 26 and Wheel of Fortune 4, all for free. What makes the diffrence is between each subtilis; variation of wave tables, their manipulations, their interrelated and effects applied to them. That's why I can tell you that the vast diffrence between the STS is that the 21 put the emphasis on a modulation matrix, 26 in a contour and gnrateur 33 poss dera an XY pad. But these possibilities (following the trends) are each unique. So little amilioration and that variations on the same basic cadnevas. But that's good for me because the HG Fortune are timeless. For these reasons I have kept several freeware and bought STS 26 and Wheel of Fortune 4, the two complexes. Each of ammne lgres nuances that are important to a huge fan, but for others the STS 26 is sufficient for REPRESENTATIVES best range of VST Fortune. With the STS 26 I can handle four-wave complexes on a choice of 128 with the possibility of transitions between them. Like many of its original functions synths take their time rvler RLES. But for me it's an exciting pluss an embarrassment. The important thing is that complexcit and the original sound wave table dpart CRER can easily and quickly trs environments rich but despite the limited number of correct modifiers . Overall, the Fortune VST are common to a range of CRER atmosphres trs large and at the same time recognizable particulire Fortune. You can try any, APRS twenty programes you will know if this kind of sounds * Fortune * you. They are so special that I do not think they can use any sauce let alone gnraliste base. They are typs, track sounds like environment of films. For me, the STS 26 CRER allows me to sound spaces sometimes pervasive, sometimes distant, always mystrieux, indfinissables, complex, LORD mobilities. I come as a motion and evokes intimate walking colossal galaxies. Good! too much lyricism. IT for some time I will give my opinion on WOFortune 4. Bye!
