it's later!
first off, the dd was well deserved, this is one of the best packs to come out in the last two years.
so, let's go into detail.

intro - eye-catching, nice little preset, does what it supposed to do. i'd love to see the preset in the second square in fulll detail
the will to live - great colors, good scopes
femme fatale - this should look great in live setting
bumper bump - crazy! very easy on the eyes, i might remix it later for something more f'ed up.
my wildest dreams - old-skool fractal action, i think i prefer the version i saw earlier, but this one's lovely too.
theory of pretty much everything - this! first big fave from the pack, the 2d-3d shift is amazing
circle action - simple, but should look great with some other preset mixed in.
ohnehin - 2nd fave, this one is simple right up my alley. squares everywhere!
diskostu 1 - great scope, but i prefer the second version
new life - fav #3 everything i love in this pack is represented in this preset - good choice of colors, elegant simplicity and great coding
blue ghost - nice, i would've liked some change in colors tho
you and me - def. interesting, i like the yath remix more, but this one is a whole different animal to be honest. quite original.
i-7a remix - nice shading effect, quite a relaxing preset.
antenna - a bit too simple for my tastes, but still excellent.
tentaclism - loved this one when i first saw it, still love it now. really fresh take on tentaclism.
quicksand - flow preset, with yummy colors, it's a bit bright for this pack, but some variation never hurts.
diskostu 2 - great scope, great effect.

my only beef with the pack is the large amount of black backgrounds - i know it was created with vjing in mind, but still, a bit of color wouldn't hurt.
anyway, this is an outstanding pack and i hope you can make it to hungary in the near future. i hope i wouldn't be that tired this time :).

congrats!

Wow, thank you very much for your kind words and widespread commentation. Very much apreciated.

with - circleaction - you're right, it's a "mixes-with-all-kinds-of-shit"-kinda preset.
actually - we did already: [link] (first visual is 'circle action' multiplicated with 'the will to live' ).

and one bad error i realised a few days ago: "New Life" look much better when you put the last DM at the very end of it all. I tried to reduce this effect on the vignette caused by too low color-bitdepth by adding the blur AFTER the vignette. Never tested the other way around :D. Looks better with the DM at the end.
To antenna - you're the first one who likes the preset :). I had some other versions that eventually did'nt made it into the pack. Some are better (more dirty or more clean) than the original. I can drop them if you like.

When Jakob comes to Budapest I'll come with him! I was there a few years ago (3 or 4 days) and it was great - great old city. Really impressed me.

Jetzt wollte ich mir euer Werk auch angucken, aber der Vimeo Link geht nicht :( Ich habs mit Winamp probiert, aber irgendwie krieg ich das nicht ans Laufen. Die Standard Visualisations funktionieren, aber eure nicht. Ich kann die zwar laden, sehe dann aber nur ein komplett einfarbiges Bild bzw. beim Intro Schrift, die zu groß für das Fenster ist... Hilfe!! (version 5.35 übrigens, falls das hilft)

Whoa! I haven't seen such a GREAT pack for a while! The intro made me droooooool, but there was no texer image in the left square. some quite good stuff here and there, i was listening to Breaking Benjamin, it is very reactive!

one more word: can i borrow some presets for remixing?

Hah, finally you made it! This pack is just great, i love how you use your skills of coding in AVS, never end to say it, awesome!

But for some weird reason, I can't see Diskotsu (fast and colorful), the other one, yes. Maybe it's just my stupid PC.

The others are very great, really good job guys! :)

A great intro, but the image that should be in the left square seems to be missing.
My faves are The Will To Live and Diskostu (both versions)
The technical level is of a quality I haven't seen in some years, very well done there. But as has been said before, backgrounds and effects. Especially Circle Action could use some more action.
A very refreshing pack!
I've been giving quite a few:+fav:'s recently. A lot is happening again. Feels good :D

Thanks for the words and the fav.
We'll see about the backgrounds, it's always hard to do, and when using something while mixing live, you sometimes really appreciate the lack of one - and mixability was also a consideration with some of these. But I see your point.

when you two make something together that is usually pure awesomeness, and this pack clearly proves that you can work together very smoothly. so some notable presets:
the will to live: what was that dark stripes i created in theory? i couldn't recognised anything from me in that preset. btw i like it a bit better without the last effectlist and the invert.
bumper bump improved a lot since i saw the early version at beertok festival
theory of pretty much everything: this ortho-perspective stuff is crazy!

fuck ctrl+enter submits the comment (good to know) so back to topic:
i think the brighter version of diskostu would be enough. the fast version is a bit too colorful. but the brighter version rocks
i'll definitely create a new life remix;)
finally the progressbar of the tentaclism remix is really unnecessary. disabling just the scopes leaving the colormap operational was much more better.
so hail the new team, and i'm looking forward to more effekthasch releases!:)

WOW! Thank you guys for all these comments. I'm having a bad hangover right now, but this is just the right thing to wake up for ... :D

@yathosho / on tentaclism:
I just realised, that jakob and I started making this preset, when we were still in Rostock. That was in summer 2006 or 2007 - so it's not ~3, but ~ 4 to 5 years in the making. It was also the first preset, we made together the whole time - jakob started the remix with this awesome 2-buffer-looping-each-other-slightly-thing. I changed then some colors - or whatever. It maybe started the whole thing. ... so I'm very very happy you like it so much!

@ zamuz: I like your idea about new life - watching through a microscope. I never thought about this, the name was kind of randomly chosen aon the vague idea of having some kind of live object. i love your description!

I would love to see remixes of those presets.

Really nice stuff, most presets feel fresh in one way or another. I like the colors and the overall style, although I do agree with Yathosho on the comments about black backgrounds, it's sort of a pet peeve for me. Some comments on specific presets:

Intro: I love effects like the one here on the background. Fun intro.
Theory of pretty much everything: Loved the title. The effect of the 3D-2D shift is awesome.
Circle action: I was hoping something awesome would happen at some point, but I was a bit disappointed. This one and Antenna don't seem to fit the pack in my opinion.
Ohnein: I love these kind of flashy, club-ready effects when done with the right colors, really nice. I'd get rid of the Mirror effect, I'm sure it's there for a reason but the half that's not mirrored gets lost and it shouldn't, because the effect is really cool.
Discotsu: Awesome effect, reminds me of long-exposure photos. I was about to comment that a bit more glow would be good, but you guys already addressed that later on with the high quality version. Both presets are my favorites of the pack.
New Life: Great colors and shapes. I get the feeling of looking through a microscope, chasing some small lifeform as it escapes the screen from time to time. Pretty cool.
Blue Ghost: Very mesmerizing, entertaining enough for me to let the empty background slide.
Quicksand: Cool effect and colors. Could be smoother though, but that's a minor nag.

Great release guys, looking forward to more!

wow jakob, i very impressive your avs presets!

i like these of the following:
:bulletred:intro - the first logo is visbot (it's just a simple), the second logo is grandchild (it seems like a version of MP03 - Pee by the Tree, but is definitely awesome!) and lastly the third logo is hurric4ne (it looks like a remix of El-vis - Atomic).
:bulletred:thewill of love - well, it kinda a total grooving something.
:bulletred:bumper bump (chinese lamps version) - BUMPIN' FUN is awesome because it seem the version of and insrpired by hurric4ne's the dance of eternity - the untouchable)
:bulletred:my wildest dreams - i saw the pack of VB19 - 1999 AD
:bulletred:theory of pretty much everything - classic to 3D, that is so cool!
:bulletred:circle action - awesome!!!
:bulletred:diskostu (fast and colorful) - it's looks like a WFC6 - Intro because it looks like musical strings to make strong and harmony the same as high quality.
:bulletred:blue ghost - make some lights to make cool just like Danny Phantom

and other presets are pretty awesome!!! :love:

A "very nice to see" pack

the most important:
The intro Is very very (very) cool
that repulsive effect in "bumper bump (chinese lamps version)" is amazing - could be more ( the preset is much simple )
"the will to live" It's soo freaky ( I loved )
I liked how "theory of pretty much everything" goes from 3d to 2d
"blue ghost" don't react very good but the visual is nice
"discostu (high quality version)" - just '!'

had the pleasure of seeing some previous versions when grandchild visited me in vienna, but this is much better than in its early stages. in the end you had me surprised this was released this got out so "quickly".

intro - everything an intro should be (but most of the time isn't).

theory - my favourite of mine, reminds me of how much i miss nemo's presets
tentaclism - another favourite; best tentaclism and i love it's finished. don't like the loading bars
new life - always loved these kind of presets, though only hurricane and synth-c seem to be capable of doing them
ohnehin - would love to put my hands on it, as i don't like the finishing too much
my wildest dreams - seen it before, but this version looks much better than the previous
the will to live - could be favourite, the shapes are great but it needs some polishing
femme fatale - i like it, but there's something missing. i can't tell what it is.
bumper bump - i'm a sucker for hexagons, so i cannot but like it
blue ghost - simple, nice, a bit boring maybe. add a background?
quicksand - i love this, but it doesn't really fit into the overall mood of the pack

that means antenna and diskostu are the only presets i don't really like. overall this is a very good pack, most preset fit into the overall theme. all of the presets are on a high technical level, but i wish you would've used a different background colour once in a while. let's see what other people do to these! oh and what happened to the game of life preset?

the reason for the "quicker than expected" outcome was - i guess - a large amount of more and more annoying "i want to get the pack out NOW"-messages over icq that jakob had to face... :D

actually diskostu is quite alright, when the music is quiet. still, it's a bit boring though it has all the potential to be a killer preset.
