Saurus 4

Version reviewed: 3 on Mac

This is an absolutely fantastic synth with lots warmth and character.

The reason why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because version 3 doesn't introduce enough changes to warrant a major update. It feels more like V 2.7 rather than a full blown V3. There are many requests and suggestions from users on the Tone2 forum that have gone unaddressed in this update.

Still the synth sounds great, (just as the previous version did) and it's easy and fun to program too.

This VSTi is definetily not lacking in charecter. Forget what it's supposed to emulate. It can really have a sound charecter of it's own and can be pushed into use for pads, basses, chord chops, riffs or just about anything.

Infact I've come to regard this as a true musical instrument that I sometimes just fire up and play without nessaccerily sequencing.

Shame that it seems to be marketed as just an electric piano emulation. I would say it's a keyboard instrument leaning towards electric piano sounds. And I am pretty glad it doesn't emulate those vintage piano's down to the shortcomings and limitaions.

The sound is warm and distinctive and the editing method (using numeric values) though not extremely exciting, is still very functional.

For future updates I could suggest a solo/mute function for each of the three sound modules so you can instantly compare and chisle away at one in particular.

Though I find the interface attractive I also think that a compact mode would be useful.
