Khords is one of the most innovative tools I have seen in terms of stimulating creativity and inventiveness, I love the incredible layers, sounds and textures that are an open door to the flow of musical ideas.
It has some edges to refine, if you are looking for a traditional sampler with the typical resources for editing, transpose, pitch tools, edit of sounds, this is not for you. But In smart and Adventurous hands the apparent disadvantages become very positive points.

Even if its "vintage" mode of playing the samples, Khords own has an innate charm. Khords could be improved vastly with Time Tone Stretch and Transpose, and an option for formant shifting. Also It would be fantastic if the transposition section could be automated with MIDI CC, as is all the rest of the commands and controls.

Khords still has a lot of potential to get afloat in a new version, but even as it was born, it is an awesome Tool that will provide your musical brain enough magic to create without limits.

This is the worst money I've ever spent on a VST instrument. Most of the patches are unusable except in one key or at one tempo (your choice). That's right, there is no time/pitch manipulation here beyond playing the samples faster as you go up the keyboard. I just can't imagine that anyone who's ever used a computer to make music actually designed this. Total amateur hour. A must to avoid. Is this a hundred characters yet?
