I tested it after hearing about it in the video interview with Eric Persing (in Cubase.net) , although he used a simple patch for the bass line , I liked some other sounds - and compared to Dreamstation , Rainbow and other analogs (except maybe for the cronosX which is also on my wishlist )- it sure had a distinct sound , a very powerfull one.
Another BIG PLUS is for the vertical sliders - I just hate those knobs - they are nicer but less usefull while editing!

As others have stated - being monophonic is a bit annoying - and the price tag is abit high. I sure fantasize on purchasing it in the near future. It will complement my current hardware setup. Documentation and support was given medium rates as I do not know enough.

You won't find it anywhere... given that it was not free. All the copies you will find (except in warez sites but it's not at all my cup of tea) are locked copies used as a limited demo as long as you don' register.

Here is the Wayback Machine copy of the registration page of Mercury-1:


The product page still exists on the current website of TC Works... but recalling that this product was discontinued... in 2004 ! Yes, 13 years ago.


And its first release was... in 2001 ! Yes, 17 YEARS AGO.

That said... it was a very good instrument. It was even rated as Excellent by the website Vintage Synth Explorer:


Remember that it was in 2004...
