SonicSynth is really about the sounds and they are amazing. Unfortunately, my opinion is that it suffers from the limitations of the SampleTank engine and IK Multimedia. But, having said that it is a must have addition for any DAW user who using VSTs. The sounds are very well done. They are not perfect, but really good. The variety in this collection of sounds is incredible. Especially for the price. Support is very good from Sonic Reality. I did have a problem and Dave was good about resolving it. In addition, they have their own forum here on K-v-r and Dave/Squids (Sonic Reality) is very responsive to questions and issues. He frequents K-v-R and is very helpful in general, even outside the Sonic Reality forum. The user interface, features, documentation, presets, and stability are all greatly affected by and really fall under the SampleTank engine abilities, hence the lower than high marks in some of those categories. I say definitely get SonicSynth. It is great and you won't be dissapointed. There is plenty here for every kind of music maker. I don't know of a higher value for money VSTi if you don't count free ones. Get it as soon as possible.
