I'm not familiar with the first Vanguard, so I can't compare them. Taken for what it is, Vanguard 2 is a powerful softsynth with a plethora of filters and interesting sounds. Its gray-on-gray lettering makes reading the controls difficult, though. Also, the lack of a mod matrix limits which controls can be modulated as only a few controls are hard-wired to the envelopes and LFO's. Maybe I shouldn't compare it to Thorn, Diversion, Serum, etc and just accept its limitations as they are. Makes it a hard sell, though.

i dont see anything at all on their website, only nexus and vengence stuff for sale.

so i guess its no longer supported, as expected because its only made it to 32-bit.

I asked today through a reFX support ticket wether it is somehow possible to purchase Vanguard legally. The response:

"Vanguard 2 will be releasing very soon. I don't have an exact ETA on its release though.
You'll receive an email once it's released since you're signed up for our newsletter. Shouldn't be much longer."

I even have a screenshot! Just can't attach it here.
