Easy to use and understand, features work as advertised. I gave this VST 5 hours of testing and here's my conclusion.

The 808 samples sound great in the lower frequencies, everything's in tune and ready to go.
Using the VST is exactly what one would expect, it does exactly what it says it will do and I think it for the most part delivers on the quality it claims.
The way I'm familiar with how to use the 808 bass it to layer it into your drums with a kick layer playing on top of it, and one of the interesting things is using a little bit of the attack knob I can create a pseudo side-chain effect, allowing me to better layer my drums with the 808.

The LFO settings haven't had much use.
One could link the LFO to Expression with the maximum Depth and Rate, and it creates almost a modulation/octave type effect.
The other thing that could be interesting is linking the LFO to pitch and doing something with the Square LFO waveform.

The VST only plays one note at a time so you don't have to worry about notes overlapping and clashing.

The only restriction for the LITE version is 10 presets vs 170 presets if you buy the full version.
One can really just sit down and get to know the software without any fade-outs, time-limits, or nag messages.
I feel this serves as a great demo for the full version, kudos to the developer.

The one and ONLY Issue I found is when the release knob is turned down to 0% there's a click sound when the sound ends. You can work around this by turning it up to 1% or so and the tail of the release sound is so short at that point anyways that it shouldn't be a problem.

Moving on to Limitations.
1. As stated in the description, this VST is a rompler. In short, all the presets are different samples and any internal editing is limited to the effects provided to you within the VST. Which honestly is no big deal considering the general simplicity of 808 sounds and the modern technology of the DAW.

2. All knobs are static and cannot be automated. They're not linked up to any MIDI CC #'s from what I could find.
(Personally I would have loved to be able to automate the Glide and LFO values.)

3. Keyboard range is limited between C3 and C8 (5 octaves).
Which is already much more than enough, but it's still a limit of sorts, so I'm including it anyways.

Unintended Feature.
If you are familiar with MIDI CC, port #91 is active and lets you control Reverb Depth (not that you would actually want reverb on your bass).
But you could use it to turn this VST into some pretty boss tom-tom drums.

I most recommend this VST if you are using a DAW with limited instrument modification capabilities or want the convenience of having a variety of tuned 808 samples, ready to go, whenever you may need them.
