Since I gave it a try at Musik Messe Frankfurt this year, I just WANTED it. Few days ago, I finally GOT it - and the money is worth every cent. I am used to many synths and have seen many stupid and cool ones, but this is the top. Okay, "Soft Synths" like Generator where there ealier in time, but this thing neither has lags in sound nor don't you need a computer to PLAY it. And, playing it is much fun, since the factory patches are superb, and there are plenty others in the net (check Clavia's Website). If you are a bit into modular synthesis, you should get this one. If you see one out there in a store, be sure to check it out, and don't forget these sounds: Infinity, DX Classic, Classic S&H, Goliath. These are by far four of the coolest factory patches.
