Ok,
Just as any self respecting vsti synth whore should , I tried this baby when it popped up around KVR . Being a bit jaded with soft synths ( see aforementioned whore reference !)
I have to admit my expectations were low .

Pleasant suprize folks !!! If your not a big reader , then just go slap down your twenty five and get it . (get while it's so underpriced !!)
I don't usually hype like that , but it's sound is apart from the usual VA pack , and has lots of potential on top of that .



U.I.
A little dark,some controls a little smallish . The developer worked out a bug that caused problems for users with custom DPI settings very quickly once he was made aware of it.

Sound
This is why your sweaty fingers should be clicking and downloading the demo now . Try it , you'll like it!
Xenos has covered the tech details better than a less than average so-called "sound designer" like me ever could!!. ( and get his free patches whilst you are demoing , or your and idiot :-).


Features
Well about the only thing I could fault would be not having what any self respecting '80s poly type synth might want ... 5 or 6 point envelopes . I'm sure the developer wanted to keep it simple so good old adsr envelopes will do the trick . It's not like most of us know what to do with extra break point and ramp stages anyway ... maybe in a future version after an army of kvr'ers buy it ( subtle , subtle hint) that will increase time to tinker with it for leslie.

Documentation
Much better than most , but you gotta buy the synth to get it !!

Presets
Thats why you better spring for the $25 , so sound designers see the potential market and get busy . There are some 300 , which are good ! More from Xenos ( subtle hint !) would be great.

Customer support
Great , quick responses


Value for money;

Are you kidding ????


Stability

; ... I can only think that the developer must be unstable to sell this so cheap ............. and the instrument never caused any guff on my system.






OK get the demo , and , ...Then , ... of course you'll buy , ... then , ... you owe me !!!

Very nice synth tho it's way too long of a plugin.. My monitor is 1366 x 768 & when opened in FL Studio I can't even use the bottom LFO controls.. Maybe a wide UI instead?
