No news yet, but lots of folks are wondering about this! Great instruments!

In the meantime, you may want to take a look at the free Vember Audio Surge Synthesizer. It has been released as free and open source, and is currently being supported by developers on GitHub. Surge has a lot of wave shaping options, and reminds me slightly of z3ta+. It's a subtractive hybrid synth with over 1000 factory presets, and 183 wavetables.

It's a good one!

But just to be aware, there is a flaw in the Surge Synth UI zoom [Menu > Zoom > Zoom to xxx%] feature when used in Cakewalk. The VST resize doesn't work correctly.

But I found a workaround. If you first open  an instance of Komplete Kontrol in Cakewalk, then open Surge in that, the UI zoom will work there. I like to set the zoom to 150%. Komplete Kontrol will adjust the UI to whatever scale the hosted plugin is using.

Komplete Kontrol is now free as part of the free Komplete Start bundle from Native Instruments. You can add your plugin path to Komplete Kontrol and it will scan and include your existing plugins.

Get it here: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/bundles/komplete-start/

Just think of it as a host within a host. Once you save a Cakewalk project with this setup, it's a snap to use.

Komplete Start is worth grabbing for that alone. Plus you do get a few other goodies with it, such as 6 GB of instruments, effects, loops, and samples. Reaktor Blocks, and other Reaktor Player based synths such as Mikro Prism. Also Kontakt 6 Player comes with a few interesting sample based instruments. Plus for FX you get Guitar Rig 5 Player and the Supercharger tube compressor.

Cheers!
