That's being easy on other soft synths. Viper completely destroys most other soft synths, they look like little babies in diapers in comparison. Once you try Viper, the other soft synths (and I've tried many of them) will never be the same again.
Every softsynth is unique in its own way.
That's true, besides Viper I do love Sylenth1 a lot as well for it's nice sound.

Even robert babictz says 90% of his bass is from interneral synth in logic from sine wave.
I maybe should have been more specific (aka speaking from my pov). It all depends on what you produce and what you like. I've tried 20+ soft synths, but I've always felt something is lacking (that's why I've tried so many of them). Eventually I started to educate myself a bit more about synths and realized that many of my favorite tracks are made with hardware synths and not soft synths. The Virus TI in particular. I realized the void comes from the lack of not having a Virus TI, so I actually had plans on getting one. Then Viper came out and all I had to do was to hear the Ambient pad in Factory 1 to be convinced that I had to buy it. Viper has the sound characteristics I seek, that many other soft synths fail to provide me.
Then it's also workflow that plays a role. I want to get started quickly. Many soft synths I've tried, have very confusing GUIs (like Harmor or Sytrus). I used Sylenth1 (still do) and Nexus (rompler though) a lot in the past, due to how fast and easy they were to use. Viper is very user-friendly. User-friendliness and sound characteristics are the most important features I seek in a software synth. Viper does both for me in a superior way (the few exceptions it can't, I have Sylenth1 for). That's why I think it destroys most other soft synths, for my needs at least
. I've made over 120 presets with Viper and I plan on doing even more, because I actually have fun with Viper. When I use other synths, I mostly use presets.
