I run this program on a macbook and there are no compatibility problems so far. I have had no need for a manual with this plugin, its very very simple and easy to use. Yes, the general configuration and setup is very simple with this plugin. Its simply a virtual rack with 8 half rack units and a main control full rack. Yes, all the functions are very easily accessed. They are all right in front of you and the VKFX is a very simple, very clean interface.
I run this mainly in Ableton Live 8 for use in performance situations. It does have one funny little problem. If I minimize Ableton 8 when VKFX is open, when I expand it again, the interface goes blank. I have to close it, then reopen it to get it back. That's the only problem I have noticed so far. Other than that, the plugin has never crashed or lost any presets I have made. I still give it a solid 10. It works great besides the one little bug and is a very easy plugin to use, which I love. I have been using VKFX for about 3 weeks.
I like a few things about this unit. First off, it sounds very good. I run my Real Rhodes Stage piano into two channels: straight into some nice boutique effects into a Twin Reverb and one going into Ableton (looping) and back out into the same Twin. When I A/B the real effects versus this plugin, I do notice a difference, but, the difference is not as big as you would think. I do notice its a little muddier on the Computer side (not in a warm way, more of a mushy way), but with a little EQ, the resemblance is pretty impressive and in a live situation, almost unnoticeable. I also really love the simplicity of the interface. For live use, using a convoluted interface can be risky. This one is easy to read and control. One other note, I love how you simply grab a 1/2 rack with your mouse and drag it some where different in the effects chain. Nothing I don't like about this guy. I paid around $200 for this plugin and its worth it for live use. The precision and quality is very good for computer based audio. I have used lots of different effects plugins and this one is high on the list. Yes, I would definitely buy this again.

- What performance? (If quantifiable)
lgbr /> - This software + hardware configuration is stable?
I use it for two years, I spend my rhodes in to the live audio processing, I assign my expression pedals, and here I am with a beautiful wahwah underfoot, trs great race! cry baby goes to bed by far ..
the distortion is magical but so raliste the breath increases with the drive. All the effects sound really good! vintage for the keyboard as the name suggests, this makes many pedals SAVE trs expensive .. the sound is good, good rev, delay, reverb, compression (the worst I think), pramp, phaser
, Tremolo etc. .. the total on hand very easy assignable
I tried the guitar plugs but not see anything that said when I found this one I did not need to look any further, go for keyboardists friends
I would do without this choice hsiter
