absynth is a stunning allrounder, you only have to browse through the banks and banks of presets that members of the Absynth Yahoo user groups have programmed to see that.

dark and mysterious, childlike and sunny sounds... absynth can do the whole spectrum, it can as well do basic emulations of your traditional minimoogs, rhodes, DX7, etc and stuff although to use it for this would be missing the point. the real wow part of absynth is of course it's 'weirdy' noise generating potential in fact it's a shame there's not a random patch generator as I expect you'd get some lovely stuff by accident out of it.

if your into 'different' sounds get absynth.

Amazing synth! But I'm sorry to say it's not very good for classic analogue sounds. All the time I program it I get something FM-like. Simple osc(saw/sqr)+ filter gives you quite a thin and unnatural sound. Maybe I do something wrong? Anyway its vast modulation/envelope/waveshaping capabilities are beyond any wishes! I think only ES2 from Logic maybe can beat it. So if you are in softsynth music creation - buy it.

this synth is awesome sounding. i find it harder to program than the other VA stuff im used to. the string sounds on absynth are amazing, the leads arent really my style, i dont really remember liking any basses either. its got some drum sounds, most of which im not too keen on but a few of the bass drums are really hard hitting. absynth really shines in the strings department though. and the modulation possibilities are crazy.

I'd like to see the naysayers come here and say that this soft-synth doesn't cut it because it would truly be funny. I've put this soft-synth up against an FS1R and a K5000 and they actually got scared and powered off. Seriously, it is one of the richest sounding synths of late and no matter what kind of music you make you will find use for it. Well, it can't make the best piano sound but what synth does? Depending on the sound it can hog quite a bit of CPU power or it can be very minimal. There is some aliasing at the higher ranges but it is acceptable. It actually will sit very nicely in spectrum with the aforementioned synths and your analogs, ROMplers, and FM hardware.
