Fantastic synth and a really great company and customer service.

Spire, as many have already attested here, has a superb audio quality and is really efficient and resource friendly within users projects, allowing many instances of Spire to perform simultaneously with no drawbacks, even on older hardware.

Spire also now has one of the best preset menu user interfaces around and in my opinion is practically a perfect plugin at this point.

I must say that in my own personal experience, Reveal Sound's customer service has been excellent, and even very recently reinstated support for very old Intel CPUs which I am currently using in my device, which has allowed me to continue to use their product updates.

Overall, a fantastic product and company, that I will fully recommend to everybody, both now and in the future.

Spire is a top notch synth with more sonic flexibility than most! The only reasons I gave Spire 4 stars instead of 5 is that parts of the GUI are not as intuitive or user friendly as I would like, and I wish that the ENV1 and ENV2 ADSR graphics reflected parameter changes. Other than that, it's an amazing synth and if you're in the market for a new one, it's worth checking out.

Great Plugin but couldn't get it to work with FL studio 20.

Cant use it for everything, mainly only for leads and plucks because the sounds are so hard core but its what the market likes now, so highly recommended.

I have Spire for a while now, I have been sleeping for quite some time.

The installation was done without problems.

It is stable and does not crash Cubase Pro 9.5. CPU consumption is correct.

Recently, I started to work on a project that is close to my heart for several years and I reviewed all the synths I have in order to find THE sound I wanted, I stopped on Spire, I do not know by what miracle, he has the punch and sounds really REALLY good.

I have several hardware synths, I thought working on this project with the minibrute arturia, but in fact I think I'll record all this project with Spire.

This synth is well known musicians and he deserves it greatly.

The sound is incisive and powerful, its effects are good qualities.

I imagine that it can cover all kinds of electronic music.

It's a synth to have, each EDM musician must have it.

PROUDLY DESERVES 5 / 5

Finally after updating my PC from old amd core duo to quad core i5, I have the best VST synth i ever used.

Sounds excellent, but were it shines is the GUI. Cool skins, so easy to tweak, and just sexy as hell on my Dell high res screen.

Also good feeling when you saved a little, 20% and are 100% content with you purchase.

Get a kick out of the "Lets get ready to rock" message on init preset Lol.

If they add some neat like 3d wave table scan latest rage, Spire would be GOAT.

I want to give it 10, but will be reserved and say 9, just because it needs a few more customize sizes, say 130 or 140.

150 is a little big even on my 24 inch.

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.
