It's kind of no-brainer, man... think about it... you can't even buy a Big Mac combo for that. .. I don't own it, yet... but that's a different story. :hihi:

Absolutely. If I didn't own it already, I would jump on it in an instant.

quite disappointing, that its price at izotope is around 150.
I've checked pluginboutique and there 9.4 eur is the price.
i don't understand this.
it's not fair for those who buy this at izotope.
I'm just commenting, i don't want to buy this even if its price was 1 eur.

In aug 2019 it was given free if you bought something at pluginboutique...

It's actually a great sounding synth with a neat editor crammed in there.. not sure why people get down on it.

It's an extremely simple "synth" but comes with a nice library of samples. Those samples alone are worth the price in my opinion.

.. but I wouldn't buy for more than a few bucks tho. Full price is ridiculous in this day and age.

Define "fair". Is it fair that people can buy games at 1/10 of the asked price after 1 or 2 years after the game has been released? Is it fair to still charge full price at that point, when the companies can sell many more copies at 1/10 the price, and actually get a countervalue then, making new game development possible? Isn't that great for the customers actually?

Don't get it, to be honest. If you still charge full price years after the initial software release, and you're basically selling shit compared to when you lower the prices, it makes no sense at all, neither for the company itself, nor for the customer. It also makes no sense at all if the company doesn't take opportunities to get market share, or advertise their other products, by offering low prices or do giveaways for other products.

Really? Less than 10$ AND you're interested in a product... just buy it already.

i also hate this pricing policy, this is the same for all izotope plugins (same for waves), they can easily be found 80% off so it is quite a scam to buy it full price.

anyway i would never buy a izotope plugins, they are good looking but have serious performance issues.

Hell, yeh...don't worry about the philosophical arguments. It sounds great, it's cheap as chips and who actually gives a f#ck if the companies pricing policy offends some...if you benefit from a cheap tool that can help you in your productions...go for it!

I got it for free last year but never really got into it at all. Some nice presets for sure and I've used the samples in other vsts but found the synth side of it pretty uninspiring. IMO of course.

Not the worst sample-based synth. I don’t like the interface though, and in particular the resizing that doesn’t resize much of anything, kind of annoys me.
