In some way AlioNoctis adds up many of the benefits from ProtoPlasm, STS-33 and Atonoise VST/i with the ease of use many still love with the STS-21. In fact this new VSTi synthesizer by HG Fortune goes soundwise beyond all the aforementioned ones. So you can expect what's typical for most of HG Fortune synths: Vivid athmos, textures, pads but also some rhythmicated sounds, all can be enriched by the out-of-this-world flavour of Inferno, Spooks and of course the highly efficient Bass Enhancer.
This is a new mark- and milestone in the VSTi synthesizer development by HG Fortune.
Pro Version basic features:
Of course the free version does not have all the benefits of the Pro version, so there are only:
In general I did increase the number of voices for the free version but reduced the number of patches per bank though I did enable loading of sf2 files for two slots. As a last minute decision the free version has 128 waves too simply to retain patchcompability to the Pro version. And, yes, most important: The free version has a censored GUI in this case.
