«  Excellent value for money »

Value For Money : Excellent
Audience: Anyone
The purchase is done online on the KV331 web site. Installation was easy enough, especially if it's just for Live as all you have to do is copy the VST in the Live directory.

I installed it on an i7-3770 3.4 GHz with 16 GB of Ram and W8. I use the 64-bit version with Live 9.

I did not need a manual or guide for installation.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Synthmaster's level of quality is configured as "draft" by default. Under these default conditions, the performance is very good with my setup. I can easily run 10 instances of Synthmaster without reaching the limits of CPU. The sound is already correct and impressive. Surprising for a VST bought for € 70 with over 600 sounds.

With the quality setting at its highest, most sounds can still be played through Live without any complications. Performance only starts to take a hit with certain big pad sounds, in which case lowering the quality setting will get the job done without losing quality in sound rendering. But in general, at the maximum quality setting, the sound rendering quality is excellent and the virtual filters react beautifully. It really feels like you have a hardware machine at your fingertips.

OVERALL OPINION

Like the Zebra2, Diva, Omnisphere, etc, the Synthmaster is a real synth that responds well in live applications to external stimuli. The level of sound quality delivered is impressive, especially given the price. Definitely worth the money! It's almost shocking that the Synthmaster is relatively unknown, given the price and the quality.

I highly recommend.
