I just purchased this the other night and so far I'm pretty happy having only scratched the surface a bit. The individual panning controls for each voice is really nice. First soft synth I've purchased in about 2 years. Worth every penny of the $99.00 I paid. It's actually 2 synths for that price, Repro 1 and Repro 5.

Ugh! The clone does a stricklingy accurate representation of the prophet 5.

Through my iPhone speakers I could hear subtle differences..maybe a bit more edge and liveliness in the envelopes and filter ? A tad bit brighter ? ( only heard this on my iPhone , once again )

What do you people think ?

It's an excellent sounding plugin IMO and maps great to the knobs on the REV2 too. :)
Definitely one I'd recommend.

Business model suggestion for vintage synth manufacturers: MIDI controllers :-) This company http://www.factmag.com/2016/11/29/mine-modular-midi-controller-announced/ went bankrupt and was 5 years ahead of its time...

In 2 years from now, all laptops will be powerful enough to run component level (every capacitor, resistor, transistor) signal modeling 'U-he style" without pops and clicks, we just need the hardware to play around with it.
