I just downloaded this instrument and set the settings exactly like they were in this video: and my "drone" sound sounds nothing like it did in the video. It's a shame because the drone sound in the video sounded really great.

The drone in the video seems to be using a healthy bit of reverb. Throw the cathedral reverb after it and it'll work better.

If you'd like to get the exact drone settings/song, you can download our "demo song" from the Sufi Plug Ins website:

It is an ALP Live Project file which contains some examples of the synths playing, and then the drone piece featured in the video. (We used reverb and some phaser too I believe.)

Thanks so much for this ....very retro drones and works a treat with lfo making the timbre move

Really nice device - thanks! Only one problem: as far as I can see, only the overall level and the LPF are automatable. Is there any way round this? I tried wrapping it in a group but that only allows me to automate 8 more parameters - and I'd really like to be able to automate them all!

Sorry, I should correct myself/clarify: the parameters are all automatable in the arrangement view - but you can't access them in clip envelopes, it seems...? Apologies for confusion.

We are aware of this issue and are working on it. As a workaround, you can make an instrument rack and assign the parameters you want to automate to the macro knobs and automate those. We will post a fix as soon as we have one.


Any way to save presets?

That would be perfect

Great device
