I was going to wait until BF for the 30% discount (so aprox $240) but found a good deal on Knobcloud for $150. Since I don't have much interest in the $100 voucher I went with it.
I just installed it some 30 mins ago and have been listening to the factory presets. And yeah, the factory presets are pretty underwhelming. I'm sure there are some hidden gems in there, but everything I've heard (which is not much) seems pretty outdated and unconvincing. It feels as if I was listening to stuff from 20 years ago.
The UI seems pretty clear once you understand the tree structure. Got the hang of it in pretty quickly. I wish the UI performance was better though. At 4K it's definitely not running at 60fps. It's incredible that Vital, a free synth developed by a single person, has better UI performance than almost all commercial products out there.
Super excited to spend some time with it this weekend!
