Well, the 'Bob' part's made up, but the rest is true. Amongst my VSTs are gems like Komplete Ultimate 11 CE, IK's Total MAxx, and the Arturia V collection; but if all were removed, the collection wouldn't be much smaller. For the last few months I've been cutting back, only acquiring (I use that word rather than 'buying', because there's some great free stuff out there) - only acquiring VSTs that add to what I already have.
So, a Kontakt synth at 75% off and costing $20? It looks ugly, but let's play the video.
For the first part of it, I was ready to stop - some nice sounds, some ordinary. But the chap doing the demo did a good job, and before long I knew I was going to get this one. That video is worth watching to the end: SEQui2R synth looks basic and old school, but it's a fairly powerful synth, capable of producing some very pleasant sounds, some great old school patches, and some hurting bass. Then add the sequencer, which is like nothing else I've seen, and the combination is no brainer at the discount price, and well worth the full price.
I bought it last night, around 11pm Pacific Time. You have to email the vendor to get a download link; they replied immediately, that's around 7am where they are, in the UK.
This morning I mostly went through the presets (which have to be installed as Kontakt snapshots - easy to do, but there's a video in the download to show you how if you don't know.) There are lots, and they're varied and I would think do justice to the product. I did a bit of patch editing too, but it really needs to be done in combination with the manual or the afore-mentioned youtube video - there's no popups when hovering over a control, and there are lots of controls.
One particular point of note: these guys make patches that use the mod wheel. I *hate* running through presets that don't use the mw, but SEQui2R synth does, to sometimes excellent effect. Thanks for that.
