All these plugins are very well made and sound really great.
But one of them is my choice for "this one instrument for the desert island"...the D-Piano.
No matter if it is an accurate Rhodes emulation or not, this thing sounds so fu... well.
Use the "Autopan" preset, a little delay, a bit of a reverb and you are ready for eargasm. :-)
And beacause I love it so much, I've used Ressource-Hacker and Photoshop to give it the nice GUI it deserves.

Nothing fancy here but overall quite good for freeware. I've also used their other sound shaping plug-ins. They work. Sure, the interfaces aren't like expensive counterparts but still a very good effort. I LIKE.

These look great :) Unfortunately, they seem to load OK but then do not appear in the list of available synth to be assigned to a track in my very old system : (I'm on XP and use cubase sx, do you have any idea what the problem is? It would be cool indeed to be able to use them, I still use the originals in my productions o__O.
