The Dreammachine 3 Ambient Synthesizer

HG Fortune has introduced Dreammachine 3 – a new and completely rebuilt version of its Windows synth, designed for slow motion providing complex evolving athmospheres and soundscapes.

The concept of the Dreammachine is based on three synthlayers with slow wavesequencing and soundmodulations.  Version 3 of The Dreammachine has gone polyphonic now and can be used as a synth too, so there are three basic ways to play the machine:

  • 1st using the inbuilt Note sequencer and if you like play along that one;
  • 2nd Hold a note and if you like play along or edit;
  • 3rd play the machine as 16 voice synthesizer with max. 6 oscs on one key.

Regular price is 99 Euro – reduced as introductory offer to 79 Euro til May, 9th 2010.

  1. It doesn't work on Live 8 no matter what I try. I read the manual (yes, I RTFM) and noticed that you needed to start the device prior to operating it. According to the manual this is not your common vst which you pull in and start playing. Yet no matter what I do, it doesn't work. And I think its a real shame because its my opinion and impression that HG Fortune runs a very fair business and their products deserve your interest.

    My first thought after reading this (I'm a sucker for ambient sounds) was "for E 99,- they'd better have a demo of some sorts". And they do. Something much better than a demo even; all their products which go for sale also have a free ('basic') counterpart. From what I've seen so far it can do most of the stuff your full version can, yet not everything (note; this is an assumption so far). But it doesn't feel limited in any way what so ever.

    Anyway, while their plugins aren't for me (DM3 doesn't work for me and I didn't like some of the other ambient plugins I tried) I do think they really deserve a fair shot. You have nothing to lose; just download a zip, dump it into your vst directory and try it out.

    No catches; no hidden e-mail grossing (I hate that; people claim to have stuff for free but "only" want your e-mail addy, yeah right), no pop ups, no hidden caveats to urge you to buy their gear. Just an honest free version to try out.

    I was impressed and bookmarked their site, definitely something to check out again at a later time.

  3. did the demo work for you in live 8?

    There was a problem where if you did not load the soundbank you would not hear anything.

    Once you do load it, the demo works fine in live 8
