I have an old version of this and I love it but don't you think it's a bit tiny minded expecting us to like you on facebook before we can download updates?

Tried 2.6 – nothing extraordinary. It sounds much better with built-in sequencer. Presets are a bit mediocre. Sync issues in LMMS (Windows): for example, a sequence plays without a pause as soon as you press Play. It works fine without any support file which can be found in the archive – I just extract dll, put it in my VST folder and everything was OK.

Of course "a sequence plays without a pause as soon as you press Play", this happens unless you enable the sync button, and if you are in LMMS, you should know that a special configuration must be set in order to send internal VST sync to a plugin. About presets, I think they are a well chosen assortment to show all the instrument capabilities and IMO they are intended as starting points to make your own. Remember, this is an analog intrument emulation from the times when patches were write down in paper sheets and users must master their instruments to change the sounds on the fly. Obviously, this wonderful instrument is not for people like you.

Hello everybody! For all those asking for a 64-bit version, I'm sorry to say it is not possible as there are several third party internal building blocks called "modules" whose code is no longer available or simply their authors do not wish to share. However T-C-M will be improved and updated from time to time for our loyal 32-bit users. Version 2.6 was just released, if you said T-C-M sounded analogue before, you won't believe how it sounds now, you can patch extreme modulations and have similar sounds as in their hardware counterparts. We included also a crazy "Synthanorma" feature that was missing. Do not miss trying it!

Oh man, that is terrible news. Really a horrible bummer that there will not be a 64-bit version of the wonderful T-C-M. Is there really nothing you can do about it?? Is there really no way around it, no workaround?? =(

That is very sad news indeed. I would love to see a 64-bit Trans Computer Maschine. Could You try and make Your own modules Sir Cescato??

This sounds like analogue hardware synthesizer to my ears. Very cool and believable sound engine. Oh and yes I agree with the others it would be very nice if there was a 64-bit version of Trans Computer Maschine.

The newest version of SynthEdit exports 64-bit VST2.4 and VST3 so it would be awesome if Cescato would release a 64-bit version of Trans Computer Maschine. Fingers crossed.

This one is already a Classic! It sounds beautiful! It truly should get a 64-bit version upgrade. And then it will be perfect.

This plugin has a very good, convincing analogue sound! I agree that it should be updated to 64-bit!

Damn! This is a very organic analogue sounding instrument! I am quite positively surprised! The sound is amazing! I really truly hope that in the future there will be a 64-bit version of this goldie because the latest SynthEdit does allow making 64-bit plugins. Maybe in TCM 3/III?? That would be brilliant!!

On my system, Trans Computer Machine V2.30.b7 crashes FL Studio 12.4.1 running WIN10. Is there a fix? The standalone works fine.

Wow! That's it really. Want an old school sound with a very capable old school sequencer? This is it. I love the inclusion of the 'Drift' control. You could easily spend a month playing with this and just treat it as your go-to synth. runs perfect with Reaper and is nice and simple to use. No hidden panels or other silliness, just traditional user interface and a really good 'analog' sound. Thank you Cescato for your hard work and generosity.

The sound quality is great; the oscillators, filters, etc. Show care and attention, this is obviously made by people who really love and respect the actual hardware. Very rewarding to create patches on; the sequencer has some unique features as well. Does what it was designed to do very well!

Crashes Fl Studio whenever I start it.

You're probably using old version as comment's from July 2013. Try latest version which had lot of fixes and works fine in most system-host combos.
