Helix is criminally underrated and deserves far more mention than it gets. The core sound engine + FX generate some of the most beautiful pad sounds I've heard out of a synth, hard or soft. It's crisp, not sterile. Of course, it can sound gnarly pretty readily, and can be coaxed into "phatness" -- although perhaps not in a "vintage" sense, and that's just fine. The breadth of sound-making options encourages me to explore new territory, rather than dwell in the sounds of yesteryear. Yes, the GUI needs a refresh, but I still find it sufficient. Comparisons to z3ta+ 2 may be a fair (and I own that one as well), but to me Helix is, sonically, on a different level.

i agree.. the sound on this is full and rich... i wish it were still being developed...
a little bit of a learning curve to get to grips with it's idiosyncrasies but that is so worth it.
