FYI - Audiodeluxe has this on sale until February 1st. At the regular price this seemed way overpriced, but probably worth $85 - what do you think?

Try the demo?

I think it's a nice synth but it's a cpu hog, gonna give it a good test, if the sound is good enough i'll buy it and just use simple patches or resample poly stuff until i have a fast enough cpu. The gui is too small though on the mixer page, have to squint pretty hard to see the values! I like the way the layers are laid out though and the fx are very good. :)

Definitely, I bought it from someone here for $110, and I thought that was a great deal. I wish I could have gotten it for $85!

Maybe I'll grab the other plugins though since I can see all of them are on sale there.

worth getting? - it's the matter of taste...
If you have several other synths, the answer is no...

If you already have z3ta+, why would you go for this?

Not really comparable, z3ta is a hybrid synth and Lush is an accurate model of an analog synth.

z3ta is basically a Virus and Lush is an SH-101.

I demoed it again after dismissing it when it came out. Three deal-breakers are still in there: the GUI still gives me a headache, the workflow is extraordinarily cumbersome, and the CPU usage, which is the highest of all the soft synths I've played (even counting the two Divs - Diva and Diversion) is horrendous and in no way justified by the sound quality (which is fine, just not THAT fine).

All of that is IMO, of course - hope that doesn't need to be said. Really do try the demo to see if your experience is different.

Like Lush and Diversion are capable of very rich and deep pads. The effects are also awesome in both.

This is the problem in a nutshell :).

When I saw the deal I thought I was definitely going to get it this time, so I installed the demo again just for a final check.

But ... the interface just kills me. I'm getting on a bit and I need a microscope to operate it. I love the sound but I just know that I wouldn't end up using it that much.

If my eyes were younger then maybe...

My understanding is that the TAL guy just bought a SH101 with the intention of doing a full on emulation a la U-No-LX. This is not to be confused with his free-101 emulation. We may be months away from release, but I'm in no hurry.
