They're totally different.
If I had to pick one it would be Diva.
Wait for Knifonium to be on sale for like $49

Knifonium is not in the same league as Diva (in my opinion). If you want Knif, wait a few months and it'll be $50.

Agreed. I like Knifonium, but definitely get Diva.

Diva is your cool dad, great dress sense, reliable, drives a Lexus but takes the Jaguar XJS out on weekends. Knifonium is your crazy Vietnam vet uncle who wears Hawaiian shirts, rides a Harley and never returns anything he borrows.

Diva for sure. But as people have said, knowing PA's track record, Knifonium will be available cheaply at some point and would then be an interesting option.

knifonium has a very special sound. not for the faint hearted, lots of it is depending on how to use the fx boards and sequencer.
i took the monthly sub from pluginalliance for 10 bucks just to test it, next to the other awesome stuff like unfiltered audio g8, byome and lion or ds thorn and diezel herbert etc. - as far as the musician bundle goes.
the actual pa bundles are gddm worth any sub tbh. at least i am not planning to stop it though you can cancel it monthly jsut to dive deep into knif for a while.

diva is just the conservative choice. probalby one of the best choices one can make acquiring a vst synth.i still dont have the moneys for all the great u-he stuff on my lsit haha

I chose diva because of its versatility. I’ll probably still get knifonium later.

Diva sounds better in high registers, but Knifonium is interesting piece with all the saturation going on if one wants.
