SoundShovel thinks this synthesizer is amazing. Brotherhood and Sisterhood of sound experimentators likes this smooth sound machine very much. This guy delivers. His apps are amazing. Not one was bad. There are some apps that at first look great but then after some time everyone realizes that everything was overhyped and app is useles. Mr. Igor Vasilev does not create overhyped prone to fast to be forgotten syntesizers and other devices.
