The online demo of Europa is great, but I wanted to try it in my DAW. So, after being compelled to create an account for getting the trial - I think that any user account to get a DEMO is simply an annoyance. If the software were free, then yes, it would be legitimate to get my email in exchange for giving away the software. But trying to socialize with me before I may BUY something - that is far from client-friendly. Remember that this is a product amongst thousands of others alike and it doesn't exactly revolutionize the market.
Thus, I am won't try out this synth and consequently won't buy it, until the demo download is available unrestricted.

So... Do they have retina support on their Audio Unit plugin?
