  1. UVI Falcon will be on the first place in the 2016 “best of”
    The best synth since long time, and sound very nice with the IRCAM fx.
    Less “ready to play” than Omnisphere, you need to get your hands dirty.

  2. x-fer serum is from 2014 ?
    If not..
    Such a beast. The interface is one of the best i’ve ever seen on a synth and i come from a Ui design background.
