Registering and all that is just as easy as any plugin. The real struggle comes when you open up the plugin and you see all these features. Now for an experienced synth user it's nothing special but it can be a little overwhelming for someone new to synths. After some time though anyone can understand it.


I've been using it for a few months now. It is kinda a CPU hog. Nothing too major but I have actually had to freeze my tracks a lot of the time because my computer isn't super powerful. It's just a 2.0GHz dual core 2GB RAM gateway not meant for music. Now this only happens on projects with a lot of tracks on it, generally I get good performance out of the plugin.


I would definatly guy this plugin again knowing what I know now. The sounds aren't your typical synths but that's OK. For me, I use it for the awesome sound effects and unique synths to get a unique sounding beat without going into some sci fi sounding production.

I love how easy it is to find sounds as well. The browser lets you choose attributes of the sound your looking for and the plugin narrows down your selection until you find your perfect sound. There are a lot of sounds too so usually I find what I want. If you don't the sounds are easily tweakable as well.

With some experience you can create very wierd synths or just use synths that fit into a beat well. Either way the sounds are top notch quality. Go demo it before you buy it and I'm sure you won't be dissapointed. I definatly don't regret buying this!
