Anyone that know this synth well and uses it extensivley, realizes the sheer power of this machine. Everyday I fall more and more in love with it. The only other machine that has blown my mind as this has is the Korg wavestation. Latency....? No problem on my half, I use a AudioPCI and get 10ms latency. with all my heart I recommend it, you will never ever be creativly limited...and I mean never. Ambience, retro analog, industrial...whatever...everything and anything is possible in this synth...and you quickly forget your playing a soft synth. I disagree that Reality and Vaz are better, I'm sorry but in comparison to generator the rest are just all toys....this is a real musicians machine...believe in my word and you won't be sorry...It just blows my mind. Effects are beautiful all the time...and everday ingenious stuff is created by loyal generator enthuiasts. Ever dreamed of creatind sounds you can not achieve anywhere else? This is it babe!,

Dig it till you reach china, Ryan

I liked Generator a lot when I first got it but after awhile I began to get a bit frustrated with it. It really takes a lot of work to build a synth from scratch with it. I found myself spending hours scratching my head over tiny little problems while trying to create certain functions. Bear in mind that I LOVE to obsess over complicated puzzles and I still find Generator frustrating. This is really no fault of Native Instruments, they just built a very flexible and complex instrument and unfortunately this is the price to pay for that level of flexibility. I'm sure that as Generator evolves and more macros are created it will become a bit easier to use. In the meantime I've discovered VAZ Modular, which I find just as flexible as Generator but 10 times easier and faster to use. The only thing that I really use Generator for any more is as a DirectX plug-in to Acid and Sound Forge. I love using an LFO modulated resonant filter on an Acid track, this alone makes Generator worthwhile (to me at least). However when I need a synth I turn to VAZ Modular. Verdict: If you like to solder together transistors and circuit boards or if you really need to process wave files with DirectX synth module plug-ins… get Generator. If you like to make music… get VAZ Modular. If you can afford to… get both!

Simple: this soft synth blows evrything else not only out of the water but off the face of the planet!! This is F***G awesome I've only tried it out on a P100 K5 processor and its wont regret buying this one..Cant wait to try it on a PII BTW the juno60 simulation will keep you awake at nights..its just unbelieveable... (I have a real juno 6 ) will post more comments when i can pull myself away from this thing!!

I bought Generator as a substitute for a retro analog synth. There are several analog synth emulations that come with the library of modules, instruments and ensembles (ensembles are complete synths). Others can be downloaded from Native-Instrument's web site. Some of my favorite emulations are of the Juno 60 (less the complete arpeggiator) and Korg MS-20, and original designs like the "Uranus" ;-) There are sequencers - 16 and 32 step, samplers that can record and play wav files through effects, vocorder type effects, etc. I haven't spent much time designing my own ensembles, but there's plenty of fun to be had with the included and user supplied instruments. It would be a better product if it didn't have a copy protected floppy and you could play multiple patches at once from the same instrument (as you can with AS-1). I liked Generator's sound better than AS-1. I would recommend a Pentium II system for best performance. Try the demo.
