i don't have anything against SynthEdit, nor synths made with it... but this synth was still a pleasant surprise to me. INTRO is a fantastic example of what is possible with SynthEdit. The sounds are bright, clear and lively. The interface is lovely, if somewhat needing documentation due to the number of features and less than self explanatory setup.
i didn't even remember this was s SynthEdit VST until i came back to KVR to find out what classification of synth type is was listed as. Hybrid, is indeed what it sounds like. It doesn't sound like yet another analog emulation nor does it sound like a simple sample player. It's far more than either of those, and sounds it. i might compare this synth to something like the Korg Wavestation if forced to categorize it. In fact, some of the presets have that "iconic" sound to them where you would recognize them in use.
The presets provided are totally fantastic and showcase the sound potentials with this instrument quite well. As i mentioned the sounds are "iconic," you may find yourself totally impressed with a sound but wondering if you should use it as is in your music... but that's up to you. Pros have been using presets for ages. This synth has lots of features to customize presets, so you can alternatively do that instead of using the presets (but they're damn good) ;-)
because i am forced to rate documentation and customer support, neither of which is appropriate (no docs, no need to contact developers) i gave them a halfway rating so that it doesn't unduly subtract from the rating, nor unduly add to the rating (like i said, there are no docs, so i wont give points OR take them).
