"Closer to Virus" =/= "sounds better".
Indeed. I just thought it was a bit more creamy/fat/whatever when i listened to all those sound demos. Of course, easily deceiving, when the sounds are drowned in fx etc. I simply find Spire a bit more "mix ready". Opposed to other soft synths, i just need to add a bit of high EQ, and maybe a bit of low end boost, et voilà.
BTW, nice to see you back, i thought you'd be gone after you haven't posted here for some months.
