One of the most complicated soft synths, for maniacal synthesists only i guess. You have to code your sounds using the csound language, one of the hardest software to learn but one of the most rewarding as you can make loads of never-heard before sounds. Can also be used to treat existing sound files, has a very effective dc offset filter, reverbs...

Good Points
Very complex, unlimited flexibility, on the cutting edge of synthesis technology, free, always being worked on.
Bad Points
Very complex, hard to learn.
