I run ableton 8 and Logic 9 and there have been no compatibility issues so far.  Smooth running a smooth sounding.  The manual is pretty short and sweet, but it gives you all the basic knowledge you will need to get up and running.  All of the parameters are right in front of you so that's nice, and the general setup/configuration is not too bad.  I like how they break it down into categories (i.e. perform, edit, global) and give you sub-categories in each.  This makes the whole interface less convoluted and therefore easier to use.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Yes, the software works great on my macbook with the earlier mentioned programs.  So far, I have never had a single crash or any of my user presets disappear.  The performance on this thing is also great.  It will give you huge rich sounds and it never taxes my cpu (macbook 2.2ghz, 4gb ram, 320hdd).  For that, I give it a 10 out of 10.  I have been using this plugin for about 3 months.

OVERALL OPINION

What I like best about this plugin is you get three awesome sounding synths.  It includes the Mono/Poly, PolySix and M-20 modular synth, but the best part is they give you another interface to operate all three at the same time, Genius!!!  I guess that options is not super important for recording, but using this plugin live, the "multi interface" is super sweet.  It has great organization ability and makes running different combinations of synths/effects very smooth.  Another thing I thought was pretty cool was the option to see the whole keyboard on your screen, or just the editable parameters.  At first glance I thought all the knobs were to tiny to operate and was very disappointed.  Then I looked a little closer and saw the "edit" button and it was heaven ever since.  There is nothing I don't like about this plugin so far.  I paid around $200 for this package and I am very happy with it.  I used to own a Korg TR and a Korg X5DR module.  I really enjoyed all the synth patches in those guys but the realistic samples (i.e. piano, rhodes) were very weak.  After selling those off, I bought both the analog and the digital legacy collections and now I have those sounds back.  What's even better is that the plugins are so much easier to edit, especially compared to the X5DR.  Yes, I would definitely make the same choice.  If I had the money, I would hunt down the real hardware versions of these synths, but until then, these will do just fine.
