Yes, it seems so. But I was expecting some love for VirtualCZ, I don't wanna go the Arturia route.
Why do you want to avoid the Arturia route? Price or something else?

I got nothing against them actually, they have many good products. I just feel I'm already covered or I'm simply not interested in all kinds of emulations.

So PB says cz for $13.00 and you get free:
Quadravo
Drumazon
ANIMATE
Is that all of them free or your choice of one?
Also, since Drumazon is $109 by itself, this doesn't
make sense.
Am I missing something? What is the catch?

You get to choose one with each order.

I am trying the demo of this at the moment, I like it. But.. Why do you need to move a control parameter for it to be displayed in the LCD?

As a newbie I'd like to see how the presets are achieving their effect to retro create and build my own sounds.
I can see the sliders and knobs and that helps but since the exact values are not displayed in the LCD until you move it that makes the process a little more cumbersome because once I've moved it to see the display it's no longer the same value.

Why not have the LCD display that parameter value at point of mouse over?

Because the original wasn’t operated by a mouse...; - )

I doubt it will ever be looked at again. The dev created the superior new Arturia CZ clone. But you don’t get that for 13 bucks...

:)

For me: Plugin Boutique VirtualCZ cost £49.96 That's not 13 bucks. Don't forget the horrendous TAX as well.
