DJ Henny's review" Strange but nice VST."

Steinberg Plex
This VST installed as easily as any other, there were no compatability issues with FL Studio at the time and it still runs perfectly to this day. The GUI of the vst is a very strange one from the usual, as it allows you to model your own sounds based on certain crtieria that you click on in the middle bubble. There are nice presets too that you can play with to get your own sound, but lots of them are pretty unusable in a mix or sound pathetically flat. Sound modellers would have some joy from this though as they have experience in the field.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

This VST works brilliantly in FL and doesnt cause any lag whatsoever. I have used this for many months now and it has never been the source of a crash. In conjunction with other VST's it works and doesn't really strain the CPU at all like others do. It is a light synth that will work with pretty much any setup capable of running a DAW.

OVERALL OPINION

This VST is very strange as it doesn't follow the usual model of VST's, and allows more creativity when picking your sound. The actual sounds themselves are nowhere near as good as other VST's that I have used but it is nice enough to get away with. I wouldn't say that it is value for price as I am a so called "preset producer" who only really likes to work with preset sounds. I personally wouldn't buy this VST for myself if I had previously used it, but I would still reccomend it to anybody who likes to play with their sounds and develop their own sounds. Lots of the preset combinations make little sense at all. However, there is a problem as the sound sources don't really blend together as one and require extensive filtering and EQ'ing to get anything half decent.
