Subtractive Synthesizer and Sampler for use on an Atari Falcon030 with included Reverb and Delay. There is one DCF (a variable enveloped LPF with Resonance) for each internal calculated waveforms or loaded AVR or WAV samples. Along with very nice DCAs and LFOs (which can depend on the filter, the resonance, the vibrato or the tremolo), a truly flexible Multi-Mode, support for 33-48 KHz and digital outputs and individual reverb/delay for each voice, it is a very good soft-synth which is extremely easy to use. It is quite unbelievable what the 16 MHz Falcon030 from 1992 is capable of. A must-have for all who still have one. I hope there will be an even better version as soon as the new ColdFire-Atari is available.

Good Points
-enourmous amount of parameters -very good for synthetic bass and digital percussion -good for synth leads -very good stereo-delay -good as a quite flexible sampler -considering its capabilities, it is very cheap.
Bad Points
-quite bad reverb -missing cut/paste/fade/... for editing the samples
