the VAZ MODULAR 2 has made an already amazing softsynth into something that has to be seen and heard to be beleived! new seq., modules, 16 channel mixer, CC# to sliders/buttons with midi learn, etc... its still the best kept secret in softies that offers incredible depth and flexibility with an equally friendly as well as incouraging open module structure that makes buiding your own synths almost game like! highly recommended for experimenting with module interaction as well as sample mangling! all the VAZ synths, are a fantastic value, what would the hardware cost you to get this level of flexibility? GET IT! get them all!!

I use VAZ 1.6 a lot, and really like it. I control it from a software seq (PG Music's PowerTrax). I've also controlled it from a GR30, and a Roland VP70 doing pitch to midi stuff, and with a Yamaha BC1 breath controller. You can do a lot of cool stuff to tweak the sound in real time, and still record the changes to the sequencer and play them back, like oscilator detune, or vary modulation amounts, or of course tweak the filter. Also I've been able to run two copies of Vaz on the same processor, and using the breath controller morph between patches. Finally the MIDI control implementation in VAZ let me build a custom "box of knobs" to tweak just about anything on the synth in real time. If you want to build the box, see my page at www.geopath.com/~jraden/knobs.html. I'm running it on a 233mhz AMD processor. I had trouble running it on a 133 mhz K5 upgrade to a 486 motherboard, so I think you need at least a pentium. Love the price, I wish VAZ modular was closer to it in price, and I wish you could have more patches available for realtime performance, and I wish you could have the DirectX plugin capability promised in Vaz modular available in Vaz+...(don't want much do I).

What else I could add to previous Steve and Sam comments? VAZ is so great that I firmly I'm uncertain about buying JP8000 or VAZ modular (new version which allows you to create complet new sinthesizers from 35 modules).

I would like to correct the price on the first VAZ page, is not $1350 but $35, a huge difference. By this $35 you get a two oscillators synth with 2 envelopes, 2 or 4 poles filters with resonance, two lfo, ring modulatr, wavetable engine (almost sampler), overdrive, arpegiator, 16 steps sequencer (with random creation), wave export, FM modulation, midi sync, overdrive, poliphony, but also, solo and unison modes (unison with detune among oscilators and # of active oscillators selectable), great library of patches, ... well lots and lots of things difficult to find toghether on a hardware synth.

On my "old" Pentium 100 Mhz allows 5 voices poliphony (it means 10 oscillators simulated, with lots of modulation on each one) and linked to the sequencer. The sequencer can have 16 patterns, you can select them from the master keyboard, and transpose it from the master keyboard, becuase you can split it for both things. If it inly export midi, you could use it for replacing wonderfull TechnoToys's Seq 303 v.2.

Remember, just $35, I'm not earning money if you buy it, but I'm happy helping Martin Fay to sell more, (Thanks Martin for such great-cheap thing!).

Today there are phantastic soft synths, I think that the future of hardware synth is uncertain, in this sense Reality, Orangator, AudioArchitect, Virtual Waves, and some more are great synths comparable to the old modulars, probably more expandable. With VAZ+ 1.6 we are in front of the for-all-times Jupiter8 soft synt. Today, a classic.

100 out of 100.
