  1. Impressive sound for a VA. The analog poly stuff reminds me of the Superwave plugins. And the big ravey sounds are nice too.

    But “can replace many analog synthesizers”…… lolz

      1. You too, eh? I was just about to fire them a frustrated support email, when I noticed the Update link.

        US$69 is just too much for this update. The only real feature that’s meaningful to me is the patch browser, plus some extra patches.

        I already like the sound of Saurus 1, so “improved sound” is no big draw.
        A patch browser should be in every modern plugin, it just makes sense. I wish they’d do something similar – i.e., a separate, larger-view window – for the arpeggiator and mod matrix. That tiny blue area is just two small, and requires two much page flipping.
