He said he used it a lot, he knows original hardware like back of his hand, how much time do you think he needs to determine how they compare, it's Nectarios we are talking about, this dude knows his synths.
Well, I know who is Nectarios. But I trust my ears too, I can't judge the authencity but I can decide what sounds better to me.

Anyway, if that Reaktor synth was an ultimate NL emulation everyone would be using it :)

CPU usage?
It's a different thing, but, the processing power on digital synths is ridiculous, at best, compared to modern home computers. I rather think it's a matter of taste, and, also, experience. Hardware manufacturers probably simply know what's popular a bit better.
There was similiar discussion in some Bricasti thread too.
Bricasti might be a different thing though, as, to my knowledge, there's quite some processing power in that thing.

Why we have argument here than (especially two of us that never touched real thing), this isn't about what is "better", but what is most authentic. Yeah, like everyone is digging Nord Leads anyways, it's quite niche thing psy/trance&co aficionados mostly dig, among other folks who use it for live gigs.

I often listen to Frank's tracks on DI's Chillout channel, and then i look up the track name, and think "Hey, i know that guy from KVR Audio forum!". :) Really nice to see that someone here gets some airplay.
