Installation is quick and painless, no incompatibility, the manual is not worth much (like all NI products that I bought) But neither offers excellent tutorial videos that can engage in the discovery and to quickly get something nice from the "machine". As I had FM7, in my case it was an upgrade. Very well done, all the old sounds were recovered automatically.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

2x2.8 GHz Pentium D920 - RAM 4 GB - 500 GB SATA I work with Cubase SX3 and still I install VST and standalone, in both cases, it runs without worry.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 10 days. The new interface is superb, very ergonomic and clear. It is a product designed for both beginners and pros. FM8 benefits from Korebrowser handy, as well as an intuitive new feature Morphing programs, save and playable live. The new sounds are delivered cleaner is the great class! Programming (though FM synthesis) has become very simple. And finally, NI has renewed a machine that might seem outdated: the arpeggiator. The one that comes with FM8 is incredible, not to be missed!
What I like most: the overall power of FM8, sound, interface, the arpeggiator and morphing.
What I like least:?
Cheap for a product that flirt with perfection. A huge well done to Native Instruments.
