When i first heard them demo of this. I realised that the software houses are doing a grand job emulating the hardware.
This is my bass machine as the sound is just warm enough and controllable better than a moog i think. The HPF is the key. An arpeg would have been nice in it. This is a 70's synth and you here all the era's sounds coming from it.

They all used this as a lead. The sound is amazingly fat because the low pass filter is doing something at the closed settings without resonance. (there must be distortion or something).
It sounds more natural soundng than the mini moog.
This is very like the original PPG and so fits in to the Depeche Mode type sound category of the 80's. Tang Dream i believe had a lot of influence in the original's design. The filter is good, the wave tables are very good. The arpeg is very simple and easy to use and stays in sync (unlike some). This is good for digital sounding pieces. I don't like it as a lead but more for arpegs. The GUI is absolute beautiful. (the original is still one of the prettiest looking synths ever). The VSTi can be multi in one instance which is very very useful. Specially when CPUs hover at 80% and you really don't want to add another instance.
I have started to fall in love with this one.
Very roland sounding. This was i think first VSTi taht i downloaded from the WEB. I was real scared at first because i was worried about viruses. But this has a nice Juno 106 sound. It is no good for anything other than analog sounding stuff as the filter seems to be too clean. I still have fond use of it but i hardly ever go back in to Cubase Folders for it.
