I picked up VMX about 6 months ago and find myself using this now for everthing, Leads, powerchords, The greatest basses, the coolest bell and percussion sounds.A fantastic synth in all aspects but very daunting to the beginner in Fm synths (I scratched my head when I first saw it :P)
The Interface is a head scratcher at first but once you get used to switching between the pages to use the oscillators, envelopes, and modulation options it starts to get easier.
The Sound is what you make it, since its fm it can sound absolutly horrible but when you get to know what your doing this thing can make alot of different sounds, I have made trance leads, 303 leads, bells, huge harddance basses, rock style basses, snares/hats/etc, and plain ol crazy fx sounds. and also has a quality option to save cpu I am guessing though i never see a difference but on low quality it can sound like an old atari.
The features.....too many to mention but you can read above you know ;)...whats missing and I wish was there would be a built in arp...an arp with this would make wicked idm.
since theres no more development of these synths :( what you see is what you get documentation and manual wise but its not to hard to learn and believ me in this case practice pays off its a great sound maker.
Presets are good, could be better, but I am not complaining, the power chord preset hooked me in the first place. 32 presets from pads to bells and standard stuff aswell it will show you what can be done though alot more is possible imo.
well customer support in non existent so not much more to say... if you have a problem ask the forums I guess
this free synth was worth the download on this end, as you probably have guessed by now I love it I won't part with it until it no longer functions even then I'll buy an old pc just to keep running this synth and the others that are not developed anymore. I have a crappy computer a terrible OS (WME) and outdated hardware and this is super stable no crashes since ....ever.
Its a sad fact to know this beauty and its sister synths vivaldi original and ganymed will never me updated again, but it happens.
