HorNet Pro offers some really usable tools for very fair prices / value and offers more flexibility then i.e. WAVES vocal and bass rider.
But for me i just can give 9 points because of lack of AAX64 (Pro Tools 64-bit) which is a industry standard and using the plugin in an adapter like BlueCat is not the same fast workflow as with a native one. So HorNet: PLEASE add AAX64 support in the future - will buy / use some more of your plugs then. ß)
Just cool and cooler as version 1 - a nice tool to fiddle with any audio to build pads and long lasting sounds, but is even a handy tool to sound design short "crazy" stuff non heard from (and not possible with) any synth before. Like it or hate it... ß)
AIRs Instrument Expansion pack plugins are in nearly each of my own electronical or partly/semi electronical music tracks and - from my view - "just a must" for any Pro Tools music producer who need / uses electronical / virtual instruments to produce or extend musical productions under Pro Tools. Just love to work with it and hope that they will further developed / maintained by sonivox in the future.
One of the best free Synths with a special "crazy" concept, just cool sounding soft synth / virtual DSP tech from Urs Heckmann from U-He - in a quality known from their absolutely "synth flagship" Zebra2. The three self oscillating comb filters are bringing "cheese" on your face ;)
Ideal for people for who Zebra2 is just overkill in flexibility, features and - not at least - "knobs" but looking for professional synth sound.
Like to use it where Zebra2 is "to much" in a mix.
One point less of for lacking AAX / Pro Tools >=11 plugin format - hope that will follow in the next time as for the (free too!) Podolski synth from U-He where AAX64 is in beta.
That's a drum tool i've dreamed since long time and iZotope breaks my expectations in most details. The flexibility in mixing / playing with very different and very unusual rythm scales is hmmm...
For me it could have a bit more flexibility - i.e. the availability to add further tracks or insert external effects (i.e. by busses) to the effect chain within (!) the synth/sample engine. But this would be just nice to haves.
While the strong CPU resource affinity in some DAW modes are not so hard anymore because of newer comouters - one problem is not available (vor very difficukt to simulate) micro time of notes, which are important for pro grade producer usage in most types of music and as a feature in most tools (i.e. on Arturia or in my DSI Tempest Hardware). If iZotope would add this as one further option (step and i.e. full track) this would help BT on a new level.
this two things iZotope gets one point minus from me - resulting in 9/10 points.
