They do often sales and even so now you get 2 for 1 so it's actually 100$.
I payed 99$ when they had a sale in december.
They do sales on every holyday. (usually 50% off)

I have a bunch of libraries like glockenspiels and xylophones etc.
While great they take up a lot of precious hard disk space and RAM!
On top of that they are not that responsive as you can imagine a modeled algorithm is.
For the price and the fact that it's easy to load, install etc. (has only about 12mb) and can make natural and unnatural sounds I nominate it synth of 2011 for me.
I actually have a project on my now crashed laptop
that uses only Chromaphone
From the odd bell like sounds/textures to pads to even 909 type kicks and heavy hitting snares.
Hihats etc etc.
Mind you I use a lot of processing but I never have so much power with it. Chromaphone
takes compression, eq, reverb and whatnot like nothing else.
