Orion is a constantly evolving virtual studio program, somewhat akin to Stienberg's Rebirth, but to the tenth power. This program is seriously that good. It is a cradle for VST2 technology as well as hosting its own impressive array of tools. There is so much to say about this program, its almost futile for me to rant here. Follow the link to their site to find out more.

very good virtual 909 very good virtual 303 flexable mono/poly synth drum sample module sampler with crazy file support wavetable synth standard mixer with sends and inserts great native effects dx, vst & vsti support more, more, more, more... you get the idea!

Good Points
Your entire studio setup is saved with the click of a mouse, fx, eq, everything. Samples are optionally bundled. Native synths are extremely flexable. It'll run on a small system! Its an alternative to bigger programs. More... Its $49!!!
Bad Points
Growing pains. You need the Pro version for all the goodies (still under $100 us). You need a fast cpu with lots of ram for BIG mixes (not such a bad point)
