Congratulation - good review. I also think, that Retrologue is an alternative to that synth, that you mentioned in the first sentence ...

For the money, Retrologue is a great synth. But it is only a small part of Diva. Diva houses more then one synth. But it is also heavier on the CPU.

For some quick and 'analogy' sounds, i use Retrologue. For the deeper works, with more control over the sound, i use Diva (and Zebra2).

I bought Retro... for €50,-. Now that is just cheap. And the quality of the warm, deep osc's and filter is amazing.
