Parsec is (potentially) very underrated. I genuinely enjoy the way sound design and patch building can be handled with Parsec. I personally like the appearance of the previous version, but it still has an enjoyable and simple UI. Parsec can make some extremely interesting and mysterious sounds. I readily give the five stars because of its strengths. REALLY good for sound fx, pads, poly, plucks. You may not be satisfied with how it handles leads and bass.
