like every plugin of mda its very simple but focussed on what it does to do it perfect.
it exactly has the features like a jx8p (exept the chorus and the layering lower-upper structure), and it even reminds me about that one in terms of sound.
it simply sounds great, and i hate it for being so featureless ... imagine this synth with enhanced filtermodes x 2,fm, filter fm and ringmodulation, more lfo┬┤s and env`s, and a modulation matrix ... i dont even want to think about it.

come on, maxim digital audio, update this synth to what it deserves ... i would even pay for it.
gui :

sound :
a bit it reminds me to a jx8p.

features :
too rudimentary for the exellent sound. you allways hate it to be so limited.

docs :
never needed. tweak a slider and listen.

presets :
the synth is capable of what the presets show.basic but good.

support :
simply brilliant, because mostly not needed (as with all the plugs of mda), but if, the developer himself is replying.

value for money :
feel bad, its a steal(as with all the plugs of mda).

stability :
never ever crashed once on all my systems in all circumstances (as with all the plugs of mda;=).

summary :
go get everything of mda, and dont let yourself be fooled by the fact that theres no gui or its free.
its high end plugs. every each of mda.

to mda :

The best free analog sounding VST ever.

Inspired from the Roland JX-10, this plugin has no GUI (it uses the GUI of your DAW), but... what an amazing sound!!!

For more information about this astounding plugin, here is below in italics an extract of the description from the original page (before he's gone to Sourceforge where he has upgraded all his old plugins, then ported them to 64-bits... and added some new plugins that are not yet in the KVR Database):

"The plug-in is designed for high quality (lower aliasing than most soft synths) and low processor usage - this means that some features that would increase CPU load have been left out!

Additional patch design by Stefan Andersson and Zeitfraktur, Sascha Kujawa.

Please note that the mda JX10 is not related to the JX series of synths available from JXPlugins.

When Vibrato is set to PWM, the two oscillators are phase-locked and will produce a square wave if set to the same pitch. Pitch modulation of one oscillator then causes Pulse Width Modulation. (pitch modulation of both oscillators for vibrato is still available from the modulation wheel). Unlike other synths, in PWM mode the oscillators can still be detuned to give a wider range of PWM effects."
