I know this plugs been out for awhile, but these days I'm not jumping at every chance to try a new synth with so much out there and already in my collection.
On upgrading Cubase this came with the bundle, so I got a chance to try it. It fills a niche that I thing needed to be filled.

For those of you that have experience playing a complex pad sound on like a big name keyboard like Korg or Roland, of lot that big, organic, moving 3d-ish sound is often times a little hard to find in many plugs for me. Something like omnisphere can certainly do it, but waiting for like 10 seconds for some of those sounds to load is an inspiration killer for me. Stuff by Rob Papen and Native certainly comes close, but playing this plugin just reminded me of those classic big name keyboard pads. And It seemed like there was very little filler. Like every other sound I see a possible use somewhere. Probably the Yamaha sound team at work here.

One less reason to fire up the hardware sound modules now.

Anyways, job well done.

Brilliant VST with the sound quality that Steinberg is famous for. Very easy to use as well and to manipulate sounds to your hearts content. I use it more for atmospheric and ethereal sounds, but there is a lot of variety of other sounds as well. You can find lots of presets in the windows user section :

C:>Users>Username>AppData>Roaming>VST3 Presets>Steinberg Media Technologies>Padshop.

(Username is the windows user name you are using and the > is where you replace with the backslash character)

For those using Padshop in Cubase, you can select some audio in Cubase, even a small selection from a larger clip, and drag it right into Padshop and grain shift away. The integration in Cubase is nothing short of fantastic.

Downloded both Padshop and Dark 30 day demo, could not figure out how to load presets. Tried everything I could to make them work no luck. Deleted both vsts. Any help, would like to try again.
