Just got Shortnoise 2 installed and was up half the night messing around with it, Haven't explored every single feature just yet, but I must say that it's been a useful investment so far. It can be a bit CPU heavy on slower computers, but other than that - something tells me this will be one of my go-to synths for sound design.

Just a heads up - this is still available from VSTBuzz (a shop Prodyon originally sold through), right now on sale for 10 Euro.
