Just got it, very cool! Seems like servers are busy atm, I had to wait about 10 minutes till I could load the page. Now I'll have some fun with it in Reaper. :-D

Arturia:

I actually have a very narrow window of opportunity to use the internet here in france and Arturia is apparently swamped.
Would have been a nice AND a useful souvenir, but there ya go.

Have you managed to fill the form on Arturia site (and receive personal code)?

Yea, I think he only needs the code. The download can be down through torrent.

Right! If you get the activation code then that's it! There will be chance to download installer later (torrent or from someone!)

LOL! Pretty slow webpage there.

Don't think they expected that the offer would go viral. I've seen it posted on lots of blogs and sites.

I wonder if you can activate it (format c:\) more than once... If not, it's basically just extended demo, similar to spl attacker offer few years back. Any info about this?

I had to wait through at least three page time outs here before getting the page to load. Just open the page in a background tab, and refresh it every once in a while.

No one mentioned that this is a bit of a stripped down version. It sounds good, but there is no access to the delay, chorus, mod matrix, and some other things.

Free Version doesn't have additional panel that you can see here (top of the synth): http://www.creative-license.com/imag...nimoog_lrg.jpg

...but original minimoog didn't have this too

I have been trying to get on, too, but only saw the link to the Facebook page. If I'm not on Facebook (which I'm not, and have no intention of joining for this), is there any way to download it directly from the Arturia page? Thanks!

Edit - just used the link at the top - thanks!

Thanks - I've been getting a 273K exe file, so I am assuming something is wrong with the servers.

I think it is finally downloading . Any idea if you can install it on two computers using the same activation code? I have a desktop and a laptop, and would love to use it on both.

Activation screen says something about license downloading, so I'd guess every install must be activated online? If you try, please report back. That would at least confirm if more than one activation is available.

LOL. Last night when this free offer began, I spent one hour just trying to get started but the connection kept timing out. Last I saw of that Arturia page was the countdown clock turning to zero, then nada.

Well, today I've now spent over three hours at this. After countless tries to get in and then typing in my contact details about ten times while there, I finally got to download page which also meant that my registration went thru. From that point on I have been trying to download this thing but have only succeeded in getting that 273K snippet two times, nothing else so far. The email with my activation code came in though, one and a half hours after my contact info got thru on the webpage.

Can't complain, this is absolutely great deal if it ever completes. But some saying it's so quick, I got my activation code immediately yada yada, lol...ymmv, indeed.

ok, back to
reload
refresh
reload

Well the stand alone runs OK, but it crashes when I try to load it as a VSTi in Reaper. Maybe it's a Vista OS thing because I did a bit of Googling and couldn't find a solution.

I disabled the network connection before activating and it worked.

It does not crash here but it takes awfully lot to load, both x32 and x64. This is the only plugin I have that has this issue :/
