    Great collection with a professional demonstration! This makes me download all of these synths… The Trancedrive and Superwave are outstanding, but Pterosaur is wonderful as well. I knew Superwave P8 since before, but not the others. Thank you so much for this very skillful demonstration, I couldn’t do this by my own. Many, many thanks!

    Yours sincerely,

    When I listen to the demonstration of TranceDrive on Youtube, they demonstrate the same preset used here, called LD Overtone. All you people listen to that demonstration on Youtube really hear that Wavosaur here manage to express LD Overtone more than 100 times better than that on Youtube. I say it again, that this arpeggiator manage to express TranceDrive brilliantly, with good tweaking.
