I was pretty skeptical of this product, but what sealed it for me was when they said the part about it being 'louder' than other soft synths. Seems like a lot of poorly executed marketing hyperbole.

I like it. A hardware version would be nice.

I bought it. Nice (wavetable-ish) resynthesis feature (sounds different than e.g Harmor or Alchemy). Not perfect, but no synth is ;)
