Excellent

This synth is just excellent. Simple, practical, and just fun to tweak. If you challenge the features vs. other available VA synths, you should consider that this one has many decent presets. You can hear that some valuable time has been spent creating them. I like.

Bla bla bla world best synth a joke

Nothing spectacular normal synth with some modulation options, and how sad to use established music producers to tell it is a wonder synth!
UA specific strategy for stingy plug-in policy, a tip, UA makes not the best plugins, other like softube Izotope brainworks make better job and pricely fair!
Be careful with the plug-in policy
UA is to stingy to give me plugins that I should get with buying a Apollo x6!
They write me that I could choose for 2000dollars and now I can choose some for 150dollar, that’s cheating!

My go to plug in!!

I just recently bought this plug-in and I open it up first before any other plug ins I have. Other synth Plug ins have not given me this much ease with making my own loops and samples!

Sounds absolutely stunning but the routing limitations are severe

I understand why UA is keeping its instruments on the simple side, but I wish there were features for advanced users in terms of modulation routing. If you're gonna charge $200 for a soft synth today (as amazing as this one sounds), give me a reason to buy it over Cherry or Arturia who offer substantial enhancements to classic designs. I haven't bought a plugin from UA for a couple years now (though I own a majority of them). I just need a reason to.

I don't often write reviews...

....but this is one of the best soft synths I have tried in a very long time. Absolutely love it!
