Very excited to get the video from this event and sorry I can't make it. I wish you many interesting discussions!

Aalto is the only music I listen to at home.

Wow! I'm so excited for this randy! I must say between Aalto and Kaivo my laptop is finally the instrument I thought it should be! I really cannot wait for Virta. good lucj with the work!

It's so awesome that you guys were able to make it to San Francisco! Thanks for coming Randy and Vance. Love the way you guys do business. You've created quite a unique and useful tool for expression.
One thing I'd like to point out for anyone who hasn't gotten their hands on the Soundplane is this:
There is no compromise in the Soundplane. The hardware seems to embodie Randy's idea perfectly. Its simple, sturdy and incredibly responsive. Nothing junky about it. the walnut surface is a real pleasure to lay hands on. I don't see this becoming obsolete ever. And that was just the prototype.
I wish Madrona Labs the best of luck completing the filtering and calibration software.
and farewell on the rest of your tour!

Very Awesome! I'll be seeing you at Robotspeak!

Oh My God! saving as hard as i can. I love how you guys just dropped all this now that youre ready. Once again, great job!

Will be ready to purchase when you guys have them ready! perfect controller for aalto! I cant wait!


Yes, turns out it was a happy accident. just began using aalto in Logic express and am experiencing the bug again.

The sequencer bug was fixed for me after I installed the factory presets on my mac.

working like a charm! awesome update!

So owners of 1.1 should expect an email containing the download of their watermarked copy of 1.2? I hope thats not a stupid question. good luck with the fixes!


Very excited for this. AALTO has been the only VST that i've called an INSTRUMENT and not a VST! good work!


great news!

This is flippin' sweet news.

very cool. 1.2 for mac as well or is it not necessary?

I'm pretty sure there isn't a topic of this sort up yet. If there is you may delete this one.
Let anyone who likes share their Aalto music here. I'll kick it off with this piece I recorded this morning. 4 instances of Aalto using keypad to trigger some and my track pad to bring levels up and down. Enjoy! and thanks for listening.

just joined the Aalto Soundcloud group. Haha...

I recently watched a video of a small Modcan rack. I don't remember all the modules he had but I'm pretty sure there were some very fast envelope generators and a frequency shifter in there...It sounded very different from most analog modulars I've heard and almost Buchla/Aalto like.
