Got a copy of this thing from my buddy to try it and see if I liked it, WHAT A BIG PIECE OF SHIT! Weak from the word go! Suck interface. suck presets, and not user friendly. I have a better time manually programming an FM synth, like DX-7IId. My god why would you waste 500 or 300 of your hard earned cash on this sorry excuse for a virt synth. Go buy something vintage you'll feel better.

There isn't a place for a -10 rating is there?

reaktor reaks,tassman runs way smoother on my 400mhz 128mb computer and has lower latency.tassman from -applied accustics- sounds just as good as reaktor and costs less.the only draw back is it has no automation.

Yowza! What a mind blowing chunk of software! After 3 quarters of college classes on modular synthesis, this program has got me wacked. This program is so versatile and so modular, it is simply unbelievable. With enough tweaking, you could build every synth that ever was with this program, and then you could build a whole bunch of synths nobody's ever thought of (yet) because it's so stinking flexible. A need to create, an ability to read a manual are required to learn how to use this program, tho! It's a mindblower!

A wonderful, wonderful piece of software.

EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH CPU USAGE. My powermac G3 chokes on some of the bigger instruments.

But the sound, oh the sound. I'm in love with the SH-2k, and the nanowave, and a few of the ones I've strung together from the bits they provide.

Works fairly well as a VST2 plug. A bit on the quirky side, and you basically have to run MIDI-Learn again on all your continuous controllers, but it's nice to have it all integrated.

A really nice piece of virtual kit. Sounds wonderful, and there's a lot you can do with it that you just flat out can't do easily in hardware. This represents the future of synthesis...
