Was it helpful to you? Yes No

Sounds nice but the UI is so unintuitive and such a PITA that it puts me off using it..
Simple things like moving modules around are terribly clunky and awkward.. Could be a great product but someone really needs to work on and smooth out the user experience.

I agree to nearly everything, what has been said here so far. Only that I would have got me Softube's Modular even if Voltage Modular would have been on the market earlier. I have both, and I use both. I've produced a series of 19 tutorial videos about Softube's Modular, and I've started with a series about Voltage Modular. There's one thing, one aspect I want to emphasize in this discussion: Softube's authentic software versions of great modules like Clouds, Korgasmatron II, Rubicon etc. They don't only look like the original hardware they even behave like it (to 99% at the least). And because I didn't have (and I still don't) the money to buy all these hardware modules, I was and I am very happy to have the chance to work with them using Softube's Modular. And, yes, it's demand on CPU is a terrible limitation (especially, when you're running a screenrecorder to produce videos about the product). The biggest plus with Voltage Modular is (besides the nicely loww CPU demand) the possibility to develop modules of your own (what I'm going to do next year after finishing some current projects). Just a side note: VCV rack is interesting as well, but I don't like the poor documentation of the modules (if there is any documentation at all), and the fact that it is like with chocolates (according to Forrest Gump): You never know, what you get.

Enjoy your day.
