The installation is very simple and it does not take very long to start with this thing! Compatibility side, nothing to report! The manual is clear and complete!
On my i5 750 I never had the problem Mondre performance or stability
I use it for more than two years and it is a real killing sound, it seems that this emulation is almost alive! If you look for a TR-808 emulation, there is no photo is what you need and icing on the cake, D16 Group had the good idea to add pots to control some aspect of its which were not available on the original. I tried a lot of "beatbox" worked with samples (Tape-808 etc. ..) and the sound is completely different and Nepheton superior in all respects.
My only regret (but this will be corrected in version 2) is that it is not possible to map the sequencer triggers a MIDI interface.
The value for money is excellent (I received a promo).
Install no problem (the purchase and registration on the site a bit tedious). It's a VST host to integrate into your favorite (OK with Live and Live with Professor ...), works well with FX teleport. No standalone ... not a drama. I have not read the manual.
My config: PC / AMD 64 x2 4200 + / ASUS M2N MX SE / 4 x 80 MB UDMA133 7200 rev / min
2 GB RAM / Win XP 32 / RME HDSP sound card. In short it's not a great warrior but it works very well. I have very low latency that enables me to use the VST in Live and tweak live. No crash, no bugs ...
I use it for 2 months. We went around fast enough when you know the beast emulated ... In ergonomics and play exactly like the real 808, pain in the ass mouse and more. I have not tried to put a control surface. About the sound, I'm a little disappointed because although there are additional controls "Sweepy" and "snappy" I failed to reproduce the sound I wanted. In fact, the TR is a good source of sound, but we like to fiddle with distortion pedals, filters, chorus and compression. The version of D16 group is too faithful to that level and you have stacked the VST to reproduce what we seek ... It gets a little heavy.
With experience, I will not repeat that choice. Nepheton is ideal for those who want the hard-TR not necessarily to hackers.
