This is one of the VST plugins that inspires me right from the start.
When I hear how it sounds, I just want to start making music. Even the init preset sounds nice, but when I tried various beautifully crafted presets, I couldn't believe I got that sound! I regret I didn't try it earlier in favor of native Linux VST plugins.
Even the process of selecting presets or creating my own is really pleasing.

Probably the synth I use the most, so versatile, with amazing sounding presets, spoilt for choice.

If you are into any electronic type of music production and beyond, this is the one.
Listen to the pro presets, and you will be amazed at the quality and what is possible!
Cannot recommend it enough.

Good synth, nice GUI, good sound, easy to work with. Its famous synth for dance music from the past. I don't think its good buy today because for same money we can get better synth. Synth is just a basic one It needs to be modernised to stay competitive adding missing stuff like layers, sample oscillator and better ARP (16 steps only, no step gate).

There are lot of presets and sound packs for Spire. Buy Spire only if you are interested in these presets, otherwise let it die, authors are doing just tiny bugfixes over years. Don't give them your money, they are just sound pack resellers now.

This are so many presets! And most sound amazing. Usually you only find a handful of good sounds. But not with Spire.

This synth came out of nowhere and after one look I knew I had to try this. After first few minutes I knew this thing had a powerful engine. CPU load is a little high for my CPU, that doesnt mean everybody will have that problem, but still managed to get some very nice Poly sounds. Overall I give this a 7 out of 10. This Synth has tons of potential in my opinion.

I agree with PUSHA about the CPU usage but was able to get it down to about 4 - 7 % using the creative asio driver and not ASIO4ALL. The sound is absolutely amazing, very thick and epic. These are the sounds that will keep you awake at night :).

Really? I might have to check that out cause that's what I am using, ASIO4ALL, and I get lag. Is Creative ASIO free? Ive never heard of it before.

This Motherfucker is hot! I checked tons of VSTi Synths and most of them is garbage. Only a very few Synths comes near a highclass Hardwaresynth and Spire has what its takes.IMHO lots of potential. It plays for me in the Class of Native Instruments Massive when it comes to sound quality.

@pusha.

Its the ASIO Driver for his Soundcard.Dont use ASIO4ALL its shit. Buy an M-Audio Card, its very
cheap and has good sound and driver support.

I love the fact that Spire is continuously updated. Great support from Reveal Sound. I hope this is just the beginning for this company. They seem to know what people want in a synth so hopefully they dont stop here and keep knocking out new instruments and effects.

Pure Pleasure! I have never made presets as fast as with this one.

Hopefully they will work on Spire growth and depth before moving to a new plugin.

I use it with Vienna Emsemble Pro 5 and Protools 11. Sounds great - however I experience a lot of hanging notes. Is this the place to get support… newbie to this forum. Boe.

Version 1.1.9 works REALLY REALLY WELL. Sounds just incredible! Uses a tiny bit more CPU than Hive and Dune2, maybe. It arguably sounds better (to my ears at least) than those two as well. It goes on sale periodically (more so than Dune2 or Hive) and is well worth the money spent. I don't EDM, so I don't have a much use for most of the presets but, it is super easy to tweak and get some great sounds that sit really well in a mix without a bunch of subsequent EQ or compression necessary. It also has some of the best sounding delay and reverb I've heard built into a synth (where most other synths fall short, though U-he's is just as good). I don't really like to jump on synth band wagons with people who make music I don't really like (not an EDM fan AT ALL) but, the SOUND of this synth is in a league all its own. I don't know if it's really better than what it's often compared to but, it's different, and that's good enough for me.
