I was first introduced to Cherry Audio by searching for high quality synth emulations and came across their Surrealistic MG-1 Plus (love the Surrealistic name). Just seeing the image of your synth brought back such fond memories of high school as my piano teacher had just one Realistic Concertmate in the class. Since I previously had this teacher for drums and guitar class, he knew me quite well and assigned the only synth to me!!!! So after I snap back to the present time... I had to download this immediately!!.

Though I don't have the hardware on hand to compare it to, and had to rely on my fading memory.... although clicking the New button and starting from scratch took me back to the joy of playing my first synth!!!! I thought it was absolutely amazing!!! The sounds are so rich, deep and expressive. Love how every knob and switch is MIDI Learn capable! I can't believe they are giving this away for free!!!!!! Thank you Cherry Audio.

Has usual, it needed an install and a registration. I try once and it was too restrictive... I forget it ..

But at second think, I manage to successfully install it (computer is NOT connected to internet).

If you can pass all the step to have it, it's have a great sound, and the GUI is very nice. (the normal price is 25$).

I'm also P'd off with devs insisting that I make an account to use free software. I refused in this case. The dev can just f**k off.

How about you just don't use it and not be a whiney little bitch?

It's a matter of principle. There is "always online" DRM. The goal of such a scheme is to collect personal data, assert control, and incentivize and facilitate further business. All at the user's expense.The software won't work without an internet connection. It won't even work on a typical laptop resolution, no text is readable. They close-mindedly designed it for 4K without testing it on smaller resolutions.

It's bad enough that when I buy a plugin, I'm only buying a license to use it, not something I can own. But this is too much. I'd rather spend $149 for OB-E than $29 for their junk if this is how they treat users.

I tried their free Modular synth last year. It was a pain in the ass to activate, and it constantly crashed. So I would avoid Cherry Audio going forward. Also holy hell, these ugly keyboard graphics take up half the screen real estate and can't even be hidden.
