One of the things that made me fall in love with Hypersonic was how many sounds and presets it has. Not just that either, the quality of those sounds and presets and that it has them all broke down into proper categories so you don’t have to do too much searching for the sounds you are looking for.
It runs great with FL Studio and doesn’t crash or cause any problems to my desktop computer. I have been using Hypersonic for years and it continues to get used, even though I have upgraded to the newest version now. Everything with Hypersonic works great and no manual is needed because its that easy to understand.
But since its that easy to understand means that there wasn’t enough options for me as far as editing the sounds and adding effects to them. With each sound that you load up only gives you a few options to change , you cant edit all the parameters like you can in a lot of other vst’s that are used.
I think Hypersonic is a great software plug in with high quality sounds and im glad that I purchased it. I also happy the sounds are as good as they are right from the presets because if they weren’t you wouldn’t be able to change to much about them because there arent any options to really dig deep into editing the sounds. This was the first version of Hypersonic that came out and I think they made a great impression with this one and it even made me get the upgrade (hypersonic 2) not too long ago. Good thing is you will have a ton of sounds to go through and it will take you a while to use most of them! I am not sure If you can actually still get this version of hypersonic though since version 2 is being sold.
The VST installed with no problems and was easy to initially configure. In my opinion this is the entry level VST of choice. Most people entering production want a plethora of sounds available to them in an instant and this VST has pretty much nearly every type of sound available. That does not mean that the quality is the best available though. The library is easily accessible through the browser and is arranged in categories for ease of use. Ths library is versatile and has a wide range of sounds available, with around 1500 presets. There is a wide range of effects available to add to each sound too, as well as quick mapping of effects to the modulation wheel.
This VST has worked pretty much all the time with Ableton and FL Studio, although it can be prone to causing crashes when certain sounds do not load correctly. I have been using this VST with FL Studio for roughly 2 years and it has been a mainstay in my music for all that time. The loading times of the sintruments is near instant, and is unbeatable by any VST i've ever used.
Overall, I find that Hypersonic 1 is a very good entry level VST plugin for anybody looking for a quick entry into production. It's accessibility is perfect for the amateur and still has sounds worthy of most productions of a veteran. The only thing I'd have against it is some of the sounds being remarkably tacky and thin, sounding almost midi. The drums are also a huge let down as they do not sound anywhere near realistic enough to be used in a real song. I would reccomend this VST to anybody looking for quick access to sounds and I would buy it still if I knew what I knew now.
This is a Softsynth, and has all the feature a softsynth can have. Only wish they gave more control over each individual patch....but the controls they give you are good enough to get the job done. They hypernobs provide settings on the fly, which prevent you from having to switch screens often. You can even created your own "COMBIS", or kits for on the fly kits when you need. I have created several stock DRUMKITS this way. Plus, it doesn't eat up resources maliciously as VST's are known to do.
This is by far the best interface I have used in a softsynth, or a workstation keyboard. It is so easy to use it is ridiculous. The learning curve is quick, settings load on the fly, and the CPU usage is very small. The HYPERNOBS are the best part of this Softsynth, as they allow you to make quick EQ, Change of Instrument, effects, and ATTACK, RELEASE, AND Velocities. Allows for sixteen channels...all which can be linked to one another with one click of your mouse, without even going into a settings menu! What other Softsynth can say that?
The sound quality is top notch...the patches were programmed well, with different characteristics of instruments detailed....things like Piano velocity, the hardness of piano keys, the range of piano sound...etc. Love the Drums...some of the cleareast on a VST I've ever used. You barely even have to EQ!
Well, I can't rate it's durability. Quality wise, it's the best all around softsynth in my opinion. Quick load time, low cpu usage, on the fly edits, and easy links to combo instruments make this one powerful tool for any DAW. I highly recommend anyone to take a look at it.
If you can't tell already, I love this VST. Works with any program that supports VST's...at least the ones I've used. Combo this with Nuendo and a powerful computer, and you've got urself one bad DAW. I can now spend more time creating, and less time navigating.
