Very Nice!


This product is not the cheapest, but the quality makes it more than worth it! Ive never heard any sampler or VST put so much detail and effort into producing super-realistic sounding instruments . The caliber is impressive . You will need a suped-up computer to use it to its full capabilities though. If you have less than 2GB ram and a processor less than a core 2 duo, a trick you can use to minimize glitches is to turn the reverb and other effects off, until you will render your project.Another thing is that it couldve used a little more guitar patches that werent distorted, but more calm and for more tamer productions. Besides that , this is one of if not the most beautiful Vsts ive ever used or heard. I recommend it to anyone that wants to make rock/alternative , without having to hire guitarists ,or drummers . As far as i know, this is the only VST for this genre and its amazing! -California
