If you are looking for a synth with an excellent sound which is cheap and easy to program you are right here.

This test relates to FireBird+ v1.9

I am FireBird user since 2 years now. I have use it in several professional tracks and also did sounddesign. I really know this machine ;-)

User Interface:
The best user interface of *ALL* vst plugins. At the first view it looks like a one trick one-trick-pony. But it's extremely effective and very easy to use.


Fun:
FireBird+ has the best usability of *ALL* vst plugins. It's simply genious. Playing with this synth is pure fun. If you press the random button you get a new sound - but a usefull one.

Sound:
FAT. From science fiction to analogue. The demo mp3s don't really show it's real power. It's not only a trance machine. Be sure that you download the demo of v1.9.
A weak point of FireBird v1.2.1 was the reverb. Tone2 has improved this and a lot of other things with FireBird+.

Features:
At the first view it looks like a one trick pony. But it's definitely not. Fetures which are not often needed are hidden in the setup screen. The synth is smart and does a lot of things 'audtomatically'. That's why there is no knob necessary.

Docs:
Avaliable in a lot of translations.

Presets:
The synth ships with more than 300 presets. Additional 700 are available in soundbanks. All presets are usefull.

Customer support:
Unlike big companies like NI or Steinberg you get personal support from pros. You're a person, not only a number.

Value for money:
It's a steal and an absolute must-have. It costs only €59. It's worth €119.

Stability:
Tone2 has provided several free updates. FireBird+ v1.9 is rock solid.

One of the best syths out there. Great sound, excellent usability and cheap. A MUST HAVE!
