@xpansion Dear Jim,
Thank you for your kind words, glad to meet you here, too!
It happens now for the second time: I’m moving to a new system and still I’m carrying that old Hypersonic bridegd in jBridge to 64bit with me. 7 years ago when I switched to a 64bit version of Forte, and now when switching to Gig Performer. Each time I wanted to get rid of Hypersonic. Spent hours in replacing Hypersonic sounds with Omnisphere 2 and Halion Sonic 3. Should be a breeze, shouldn’t it? No! Some Hypersonic 2 sounds, especially some synths sounds and arpeggios, with their modulations and articulations, are programmed so well in that old beast. They were done mostly by Peter Gorges, one of the legends of synth sound design from Germany.
Next I was running out of time because of upcoming rehersals and shows, and the only solution to mangage it in time was to use my old sounds in Hypersonic 2 again and again!! For my cover band and my own vanity a 1:1 reproduction of some special and iconic sounds is important, I have them in Hypersonic since years, only.
The good: Hypersonic 2 with jBridge to 64bit works without any problems, tested since months, now. And Steinberg still supported me at some license issues!
The bad: I know the next time I make a system switch then I have to get rid of Hypersonic 2. And NI B4. The next time, for sure, finally …
And yeah, the GP community and the responsivity of the GP developers is stellar!
