  1. Aw, now we're going to have synths NAMED after particular bands? Aren't enough people trying to channel Depeche Mode et al as it is? Considering how common and simple most of those sounds are, I'm dubious about that aspect of the idea.
    On the plus side, if you are determined to bask in being Kraftwerk Jr. or anything near it, this amusing mix of oddities is a nice little palette to have in a single package. Things like Orchestron are the spices that make a set more worthwhile. The translator is a nice touch and the GUI shows off a pleasing cleverness. It'll have some fans, for sure.

  2. I don't really understand the intention of this sample lib. I can't here anything which can't be made even with some standard VST synths. I have a collection quite good synths like Absynth, Zebra, Sylenth, all Korg soft synths etc. I think I have most of those sounds even in the factory libraries.

  3. It looks as if their lawyers waited for the day before the official launch 😉 I guess they wanted to maximise sales of the plugin, so they could maximise their damages claim. Aren't they clever?
    I was thinking about the legalities of this plugin. I guess using the name Kraftwork without permission is what's going to get them in strife. If they renamed the plugin then it should be OK.
    Imagine if they released a "Rolling Stoner" VSTi which contained virtual drums, bass and guitar which would enable you to sound like an authentic rock band! (yawn).
    I doubt it would cause a fuss…
    So I'm sure this thing will get released eventually. Fingers crossed!
