What every reason fan has been waiting for the upgrade to v2.0. Does what it is supposed to do and does it very well, have only had one freeze which was my fault anyway.

Good Points
It sounds alot better than the previous version. Able to use 24bit files. New gear for the rack makes a difference. The NNXT sampler is very simple to use and the filters that go with it are much better than Halions. The Maelstrom synth very new sounding and with a bit of tweaking can get some unique sounds. Included was the Orkestra Library of sounds for the NNXT. Good enough sounds to use. Works with all major apps through Rewire.
Bad Points
Same Factory bank, I think just the added patches for the NNXT and Maelstrom. I'd like to see more different type of effects so the use would be on its own.
