Value For Money : Excellent
- Did you have any problems during the installation? No problemo! You only need to insert the CD and answer the questions. An important point (clearly stated in the manual): the Steinberg key should not be connected when installing Hypersonic 2.

- Did you have any incompatibility problems?
None

- Is the overall configuration easy?
No problem whatsoever.

- Is the user's manual clear and comprehensive?
Yes.


SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

- What's your computer setup? (motherboard/CPU/RAM/HDD/soundcard...)
Pentium 4, 2.80 GHz. 1GB RAM. 56 GB HDD
E-MU 1616m soundcard.. Cubase SE3.

- Does the software work correctly with your setup?
It works great. Hypersonic 2 uses almost no CPU resources.. I can easily have four Hypersonic 2 instruments that use up the same as Arturia's MiniMoog V.

- How is the performance? (if measurable)
Excellent. See below.

- What about the hardware/software configuration stability?
Very stable. No issues.


OVERALL OPINION

3 months

- Which features do you like the most / the least?
The most: a single VST instrument offering a very comprehensive palette of excellent sounds. The hyper-potentiometers and their pre-configuration in relation to modulation wheels - master keyboard Pitch bend.
The three "demo" modules (US-1 Ultra-Synth, GP-2 Grand Pianos and NB-3 Virtual Tonewheel Organ (Hammond)), which are in fact forever (by loading Hypersonic 2 unto two Instruments VST slots, the second instance includes the "demo" modules).
The least: certain sounds (from the lead synth block, for example) aren't always in the right key. I have found two such cases up to now. In which case you can solve the problem by retuning the sound with the 1/100-tone settings...

- Did you try any other models before buying it?
Yes: E-MU Proteus, Native Instrument Reaktor 5, Arturia's Analog Factory.

- How would you rate its value for money?
Excellent, given the sounds available and their quality!

- Based on your experience, would you choose this product again?
Absolutely!
