  1. I have most of these since they have been on a few humble bundles lately and as far as VSTs go they do sound really good. The mercury and eight voice get used a LOT.

  2. Cherry Audio deserves the Best-of-Show award. The only thing they don’t cover is acoustic piano and if you drop a decent sample into Harmonia, you can have at least part of one in there. $299 doesn’t seem bad for a prog stack that would reach above your head if it was hardware!

  3. Cool. +6 new nice sounding synths. I dreaming of installation manager like on Arturia, NI to install, update them all at one.

    1. Mitchell from Cherry Audio here – we’ve finished a really nifty installation manager called Cherry Sync. It’s currently in limited-release, that is, we want to make sure it works 100% before we go full-hog, but it’s very straightforward, easy to use, and makes light work of installing (or uninstalling) our titles en masse.
