  1. bought it yesterday. d1 features great and inspiring high quality sounds – the demos provided here do not cover this at all. UI is clean and transparent. audiobus is still a bit rough and AU is announced, but synth one showed that audiokit keeps their promises and this will be resolved very soon.
