Hi all i have demo copy of bloom, its a really cool plugin for effects but the only thing i find is its a bit big on the gui size ,i have 2 20inch monitors and bloom takes up about 2 thirds of the screen.

:cry:

Hi there. Yes it is a big plugin. Is your host adding a lot of functionality across the top of the plugin window? That would make it seem bigger than it actually is.

Whereas I love the size on my two 22 inch monitors......wishing etch and dcam will follow in size (yes I do have dcam resized but it isn't crisp and clear :-))

What resolution are you running your two 20 inches at?

ok, maybe its a 'tad' big :-)
resizing option I would imagine is the best way to satisfy most users?

True, but for some of us, like me I like it like that...

Both Bloom and Maul are obnoxiously huge. I do love Bloom and bought it on the spot but the GUI is waaaaaay too big. Of course that doesn't mean I love the fx guys any less but a resize option (or just shrinking the GUI full stop) would be nice :)

I think a smaller GUI option would be great. Having it massive is brilliant for when you're just using that plugin, but if you're building a full effect chain or tweaking a synthesiser at the same time as a couple of effects, the screen estate is eaten up far too quickly. Definitely want to get a 'concise' window setting in there :)

Etch was perfect size-wise. I wonder why they went jumbo with Maul and now Bloom? Be great if we could downsize to Etch's lack of gratuitous expanse.

just to reiterate that not everyone is unhappy with its size.

I am going to chime in here really, really late to this party and say that I absolutely love the size of the GUI for Bloom.

I wish that various elements of the Geist GUI were that large and could be hidden or opened or on tabs or something. I am an older fart (pushing 50). Maybe I should just get special computer glasses and not just bifocals :D

You're not alone on the second part - plenty of people have already asked for a bigger Geist GUI over in the Geist sub-forum ;-)
