This is a great sounding plugin from a great developer. Not sure why it isn't rated higher.

This is a good plugin for strings & pads. At first it was an absolute CPU hog, but then I noticed that this was easily fixed by hiding the GUI. Plus, it's small in size (only a tad over 1 Megabyte).

Does not play well with Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol - generates a crash.

Hello Sir Full Bucket, could You consider developing a Korg MS-20 emulation in the future?? With polyphony, pretty please?? That would be absolutely amazing!!

I've found myself using this on almost every project... I don't know how realistic this is but to my ears sounds just right.....

Seems to be an emulation of the Siel Cruise and the identic built Sequential Circuits Fugue. In comparison with those it sounds ok, but the original machines solo sections were totally brilliant and unique.

This is the business. Some great sounds and a flexible vst, all sliders and controls are easy to read and navigate around. A must have if playing live due to the split mode. Download and enjoy :)

A new favorite. You can actually split the keyboard into lead and pad which is useful live.
