All I can do is just "echo" what has already been said about this thing. It oozes vintage soul and you can easily lose yourself in it. Plenty of options to tweak your way back in time. Definitely not just another delay, it's almost human.
Yeah, can't say anything bad about this. Came included in the Slate bundle, sat on the back burner because I have other guitar vsts, as well as real amps and mics which I prefer. I finally checked it out, the other amp sims are now history and my neighbors are happy that the walls aren't shaking. This thing sounds REAL. It lacks a bunch of bells n whistles, but who cares. Takes real pedals well and the built in RoomThing reverb is brilliant. Deserves more than a 10.
I've been on the fence about sinking a good chuck of money into a drum synth for quite a while. Up until now, I've gotten great results from the freebies, vsti's as well as one shot samples. I first checked out Punch about 3 years ago and have been drooling over it ever since, but I was skeptical about it's Windows XP 32-bit compatability. After a recent PC upgrade, I started weighing my options again. Tried uTonic (sounds fantastic, but IMO is too limited for an all-in-one drum synth option), tried Tremor (way too big a CPU hit, even on my 3.5 Xeon with 24G ram). Punch just "worked" for me...synthesis, sampler, sequencer, built in effects (fuzz distortion is fantastic btw, reminds me of running my hardsynth into a Boss FZ-2 HyperFuuzz at times). Within minutes, my electro drums took leaps and bounds.
Bottom line? Sounds great, easy to program, low CPU hit. Buy it.
I paid a whopping 7 US dollars for this. It works flawlessly and cured my Reaper woes with dealing with hardware CC resets while looping. It's laid out just like the synth....turn a knob on the synth, VST knob turns.....turn a knob on the vst, synth knob.....well, haha. Works great. My only request would be that the Voice Mode parameters were available and some of the menu edit functions, like portamento, etc, could be accessed.
