I've been using it for about a year now and I haven't had any problems with the VST. It isn't very CPU intensive either. I'm running a Dell XPS 7100 studio with six cores and 6GB of RAM but even on a computer that is less suited for music running Q should not be much of a problem. It has never been the cause of a crash, and everything about it seems stable. The loads time are very quick as well.
The Q is an average VST instrument. It isn't going to coover any of your bread and butter sounds, so if your looking for an overall instrument I would recommend a different plugin. The Q is marketed toward "sounds for the big screen". While the sounds certainly fall short in that respect, they do manage to sound good in my beats. Q comes with a variety of sounds ranging from granular orchestras to unique choirs. Some of the sounds are cheap and generic. Others are very unique and creative. Your going to have to really find what you like out of this VST before you really enjoy it, but believe me there are some good gems in it. I probably wouldn't buy it now that I know what is in it, but if you somehow manage to get it for a discount, and you already have your basic sounds covered, I'd recommend it.
