MSoundFactory may well be the most powerful instrument out there. It's modular, so you can have any number of oscillators, filters, samplers etc. you want. It features per-voice and global modulation, full MPE support, the best sounding oscillators on the market, a fully modular effects engine... And we are just getting started...
A beta version is available for purchase with an introductory price
MSoundFactory will most likely be a never-ending project. We are probably not going to make any further instruments, instead we are going to implement further modules and features into the mighty MSoundFactory. MSoundFactory currently comes with many presets converted from MPowerSynth and several fully featured instruments, but it's far from being "ready". However it can already be used by creative minds looking for an extremely powerful instrument. The only necessary module needed to be added to the first official release is a sampler, so please stay in tune.

I don't understand the positive reviews. The plugin is buggy (version 15), some sounds are showing as 'content missing', I have regular crashes of my hosts while working with it.
Regarding the sound I would say - good average but nothing extraordinary. The presets are very digital, very cold.
The GUI requests quite a long learning curve, if you expect fast results you are wrong with the plugin. The soundbrowser is complex, first you have to look after the category (e.g. Bass), then you choose the plugin and after that you have a several browser for the sounds. Not the easiest way.
Looking at the positive - it is modular and you have a lot of options and opportunities - after the described learning curve.Read Review
This is amazing. Probably the best synth I've ever used. For the first few days, I thought it was great but maybe slow to use, learning concepts/menus. After a couple of weeks (not that many hours, I don't have that much time!) I now find the workflow fast and making great sounds is fun and intuitive.
It is feature rich, hugely powerful and has a superb 'pure' sound. 'Analog' randomness/feel is easy to add with loads of options.
Very CPU efficient and stable.
I'm not quite as impressed with the presets as I don't think they demonstrate the power of this synth and they could be better organised. Due to this I probably wouldn't recommend the 'LE' version (which doesn't allow editing). As Melda updates are frequent, I'm sure this will be improved.
Stick with the interface, configure it to your liking and after a while you'll see why this is such a great VST. Definitely one of the very best available (maybe the best).Read Review
I love this synth / sampler / sonic playground. SoundFactory is probably the most fun and inspiring synth I have used. Sound quality and what sounds 'good' can be just personal taste but of the many synths I have owned over the years it is easily on a par with the best of them.
When people say certain hardware has a bit of extra magic or mojo I just think this has that too.
The beauty for me is you can go deep exploring but also you can just throw together strange combinations of sound generators and fx and modulate them and get interesting results.
The layout can seem daunting at first with pop out menus and so many options but it is actually pretty easy to learn and also there is a lot of help boxes so you can get info on what the controls do and learn things as you go along. It is brilliantly well thought out overall.
I hope Soundfactory does really well - it is its own thing, and some people may be put off by the extra menus or layout etc but I just love the workflow now.. basically it is always inspiring, fun to use and just sounds very good - also you have a huge amount of top quality but pretty crazy FX to modulate and play with.
There is also all the drum side of Soundfactory which looks really impressive too but I haven't even got to that yet so lots to explore still.
It has been a great buy for me so far and I can 100% recommend it.Read Review
For me, the best environment to make sound.Read Review
MSF is not a normal VST. It is a Workstation and a Platform. It is senseless to describe its Possibilities here. Forget what you know about OSC, Wavetables, FM and what ever. MSF exceeds what has been before. It is a big Step forwards in the History of Synthesizers. You should better rethink your Sound Design and Business Concepts as soon as possible.
Annotation: The delivered Presets i. m. O. don't even scratch the Surface of MSF's Possibilities and MSF can not be recommended for People who are looking for another Toybox.Read Review
