Same here, the only reason why I haven't demoed it myself.
There is no need to force people to open accounts just in order to try a demo version. They can still do that if and when they buy it.

I like it for certain uses but its innate character is a little plain compared to other synths, IMO. The chorus does help with that. Still, I really like the reverb algorithms (although the Room one does something odd to the pitch, not sure if that's a bug or a feature) and the UI is well done.

I would like to be able to select polyphony by clicking + dragging instead of having to keep clicking the buttons to get the right setting, and I'd love a highpass on the reverb but these are minor things.

It's a basic but solid little synth for the money.

How is that company? I have never heard of them so far...
Several of the founders/programmers were formally with Cakewalk and Sonic Foundry.

{aside} I jumped on Voltage Modular upon release, and it has been improved, upgraded, expanded, and enhanced with great regularity. They really listen to users feedback/requests as well from what I have seen and experienced.

Interesting, didn't know that. :)
Plugins and a DAW. On an operating system. Which runs on a computer.

Endorsements by Howard Jones and the keyboardists of Starship and Night Ranger... This is a solidly-coded block of 80s cheese that I had to own. It's nice. Not too fancy, but what was fancy back in the 80s other than hair?
the old free version may not work boots successfully on new generations of computers, instruments, and hardware

I didn't know that either.
I checked on their website and found this:

"Cherry Audio is a new company formed by a small group of industry veterans from Sonic Foundry, Cakewalk, Bias, Acoustica, and Keyboard Magazine. Voltage is backed by a real company, built by programmers with decades of experience creating audio and DSP software."

Nor is it tied to Roland Cloud Manager or a subscription.

You guys have no imagination. Get a burner email and register with that. Problem solved. While you're there grab Voltage Modular Nucleus which is absolutely free.

For sure there is a Reason: BI. And this App even downloads Updates autonomously.

That Point made the Descision easier for me...

I was never a fan of the hardware but I like this VSTi. It's straightforward, it sounds OK and it has enough features to be very useful. Yes, it does use a bit of CPU but it's so easy to use that I really don't care. My bandmate bought it last year but I had no interest in it at all until he played me a few things he'd done with it. For $25 it's a no-brainer. I grabbed it when I bought Eight Voice but it's getting a lot more use.
