The Super Quartet is simply the best DXi synth I have heard. The Edirol Virtual Sound Canvas is simply no comparison. Though it is limited to piano, bass, guitar and drums, the sounds are very realistic. When the parameters are tweaked, the instruments come alive (esp. the drums). If you are looking for these basic instruments, it is a sweet synth.The cons of this program are that there is no brass section, and it does not appear to completely follow GM/GS mapping conventions for the drums (though this is simply a matter of tweaking the drum maps). I suggest trying the demo at the Edirol website before making the purchase.
When I downloaded the demo and played it i thought, naw, these guys have got to be kidding, they are really playing a wave file of some studio musicians. Well I didn't actually think that, but any non-musician would never even suspect that it was sampled stuff. The tambre of the samples is superb and the quality is astonishing! Clean, clean clean. The interface kicks *** and you can tweak the *** out of the sounds with eq, chorus, reverb, etc. True it chews up the cpu cycles pretty good when you've got a lot of polyphony going, but in cakewalk, you just render each piece as a wavefile and it takes a big load off the processor. Yes it might seem pricey, but not when you consider would it would cost in outboard gear. I have alot of equipment and i'm sure that I will rely most heavily on the quartet for all my piano/bass/guitar needs. I love the drums as well but have not fooled with them extensively but they sound top notch. I am successfully running the software on a 1ghz dell notebook with win2000 and 256mb ram. No problems. Do yourself a favor and at least download the demo. There's a wicked annoying beep every 30 seconds while the plug in is running but the rest is pure joy.....
