Sweet synth

By progman 58

from Florida

See all my reviews

I've been using Z3ta + for over six months now and it's probably the best soft synth you can get in this price range. The GUI is clear and direct, the CPU usage is medium/light, effects are good, and the most important thing: Sound is top notch.The modulation matrix is where you might have to do a little homework, but it's worth it, you can control any paramiter from practically any source, Z3ta has lots of arps, great bass sounds and leads and seems pretty stable. However comes shipped with IMHO few pad presets.I wouldn't hesitate to get this synth. Cakewalk and RPC have really hit the mark on this one!
