Describing a synth is not easy but imagine it's the late eighties, a DX7mk11 meets a Wavestation in a bar and go on to have kids - Rhino would be their youngest, most gifted offspring!
The sound of Rhino is the killer. Not analog, not digital as such. just a rich Rhino combination of everything.
Evolving sounds, hard sounds, metallic, crystaline, morphing, even emulative real world sounds.
A CPU hog - yes, but invest in Freeze and enjoy. So many great presets available and first class support - probably the best support out there.
** Since I wrote the above Rhino has found many more uses in my music. The sheer variety of sounds available and presets means it is really a very capable all rounder (especially if you invest in some of Daniel's excellent banks). Rhino can cover most bases very well -and I know that if I feel brave enough to tackle programming some of my own patches, I can go as deep and complex as I want!**

Some of their old awesome VSTs are already re-released in 64-bit and some new plugins were created during the last months. It is probable that all their other best BigTick plugins will be re-released too, Rhino included. Now... when... Nobody can't tell but I think that they are probably already working on them.
