I have to give this a "1" rating, which may seem kind of harsh for a "free" VSTi. However, I think that this has earned it by failing to even reach the lowest bar that an instrument can reach: it makes no sound at all.

Apparently the developer had a flash of marketing genius and realized that plug-ins that were marketed as "Free" got more traffic and views on KVR, so they split this keyboard sitar into two parts, the "Player," which they let you download freely, and the "Expansion Pack," which contains the soundware, for which you must pay them $49. This is not "expansion" in the sense that the Player does something without it and the Expansion Pack lets you do more, the Expansion Pack only lets you use the instrument at all. Without it the Player just sits there on the screen with a banner telling you to buy the Expansion Pack.

I can only wonder what percentage of people, having been lured in by interest in a free sitar VSTi, and then going to the trouble of downloading what they think is a lite or demo one, then finding out it is neither, will then want to shell out 50 bucks for a full-priced one from the same site. My guess is that it would be a very small percentage, but then nobody is said to have gone broke overestimating the stupidity of the public.

WARNING! Don't download and install this thinking that you are getting a "lite" or demo version of a VST instrument. It makes no sound as it is. This is just a way to get listed as a "Free" plug-in on KVR. All you get is a "player" with no soundware whatsoever. To be able to play any sound at all, you have to cough up $49 for the separately listed "Expansion Pack."

Rather disappointing "freebie". The least they could have done was to give you something that made some kind of noise. But no.
