Where to start......, best with starting the plug from then on you will have one hell of a time to close it again, this VA-Modular-VST is hell addictive. The ACE concept of plug any cable anywhere enables you to do some really impressive sounds and cabling, which can be a bit daunting at the beginning especially for newbies in creating sounds from scratch. You can use any tutorial about Modular synthesis and learn it in ACE and master it there and thanks to the clear GUI you always know where to put things. The best of ACE: plain simple it is one of the most impressive analogue sounding VST's out there and pretty powerful in what it can do to! The worst of ACE: The only real downside of ACE... it's processing hunger, but sound quality doesn't come from thin air, you will learn to love the freeze/bounce function of your host, you need it a lot... This synth captured me since I got it christmas 2009 and didn't let me go for a long while, hence the late review ;) I am struck with love for this baby, lush pads, booming basses, soaring leads and experimental sounds with ACE you can produce most of the sounds you need. I just can say thanks Urs make the Bazille a bigger monster!
