- Did you have any problems during the installation?
- Did you have any incompatibility problems?
- Is the overall configuration easy?
- Is the user's manual clear and comprehensive?
- No installation problems.
- Yes, in the beginning, with the Cubase security key, because Hypersonic 2 uses it.
But tweaking the setup I managed to change the key from Cubase to Hypersonic 2.
- Yes
- I haven't read it. The synth is very intuitive.


- What's your computer setup? (motherboard/CPU/RAM/HDD/soundcard...)
- Does the software work correctly with your setup?
- How is the performance? (if measurable)
- What about the hardware/software configuration stability?
- Intel Core 2 Duo 1.98 Ghz, 2.00GB RAM, 320GB HDD, MOTU Firewire Series (the last before the MOTU HD series)
- It works properly.
- High performance, no latency. I have recorded up to 10 tracks and the CPU usage within Cubase didn't even rise to 1/6!!
- Yes, it is stable.


- How long have you been using it?
- Which features do you like the most / the least?
- Did you try any other models before buying it?
- How would you rate its value for money?
- Based on your experience, would you choose this product again?
- One month

Its sound library, it's very comprehensive.

I had some problems using it with ReWire (which I nevertheless solved), for a moment it forces me to activate the Cubase window to hear sounds in ReWire.
- Hypersonic 1
- A bit expensive, but it's worth it..
- Yes, I would buy it again with my eyes closed. Hypersonic 2 is one of the best on the market.
