    many people think this is the best free subtractive synth. gotta say that that video does not do justice whatsoever. put on the Chorus and Unison, and you have got a real phat sound. It has a very distinctive personality, and it might have exactly the sound you’re looking for. Try using a Cabinet with it. I always use it for my subs. You can have up to 16 Voices and its super low CPU. For being “cheap looking”, it actually looks cool — especially once you fall in love with it. Only has Saw. Square, Sine and Triangle though. Super crisp Saw; just the way you like it.

    Can I save patches to wav format and load them into my sampler for play back in real time.
