Crylogic 1.1:

Factory Samples / Presets:
Pretty genius I have to say. If I only spent 5 minutes with Cryologic I would think they are merely 80’s sounds, and not useful. But it is MUCH more than this. The sounds are very fresh, and while it does have 80’s color, and vibe, the sounds are more than perfect for today’s club rockers, or atmosphere to fill up a cinematic orchestral score. If I was to sum up the presets in one word, I would say dreamy. If you don't like dreamy sounds, it may not appeal as much.

It comes with over 100 presets, and each preset can layer up to 3 .sfz file. The factory bank has about 80 .sfz files to choose from, and while most are electronic sounding, there are some acoustic ones, like piano, organ. There is a filter, and amp ADSR, as one would expect, but it also has a X/Y controller, Arpeggiator/gate, Basic Ring Modulation & Vibrato , Filter ADSR, Reverb and Delay! The reverb and Delay are very CPU light.
One cool thing about the layering is that you can pan, octave shift, and level the sound, which adds so much more depth.
A few presets really made me extra joyous and giddy: 1) The ‘Percussive Organ’ was very warm, and snappy. 2) ‘Fog in my head’ was really creepy, and had much depth. 3) ‘Waves’ was a beautiful panoramic & scenic pad. 4) ‘Modern Lead’ is great for a CPU light Supersaw, to subtly thicken a lead or breakdown melody/pad.
And many more good ones!

Performance & Stability:
It has great performance sans two issues: SE Multi-processor bug and only 32bit VST is available. This makes it a bit more difficult.
Because of the lack of 64bit support, the stability is a huge problem for serious projects, and Jbridge may be an option.

The sound engine works great, and I never heard anything strange.

User Interface & Features:
Well laid out, but missing knobs for the Ring Modulation, and Vibrato was unfortunate (however you can control them via CC), but that would be an great addition to the next version! Also, 8 polyphony was limiting.

Customer Support:
The author of this product was very cordial, helpful, and fast.
