I had a hard time with the authorization (I bought it second hand, so I had to get the license transfered), but it made me realize that their support is good and responsive.




I've been using it for 4-5 months. I love the sounds, which are of very good taste. I love its design and usability. I adore the effects. The sound is huge, very musical, very shapeable. There's almost nothing to criticize. It's actually my staple tool (complemented with "addictive drum" for drums). Guitars are jaw-dropping, pianos are excellent, the orchestras sound very "big," solo instruments are very good for the most part.

The only thing I regret, is that it lacks sounds, which is a pity for a general-purpose sampler: I needed a clavinet some days ago and couldn't find one. I needed scratches: none found. No '90s electronic drum sounds, nor "oberheim" strings. No harmonica either.

Luckily, you can import libraries.
