Listening to this brings me back to when my pops listened to roger & zapp on the record player. Might have to try this out.

This sounds really nice, but unfortunately it's too expensive for me.

Starpoint is from my hometown!

Has anyone given this a shot yet? I like the sounds but how is the software compared to other single synth hardware emulations?

Some thoughts,

what I saw so far it`s a maze player in vst format.
Means the sounds are predefined and cannot be programmed from scratch.
Calling this a vsti? I don`t know, not to me.

Over 100 bucks for a maze player? Really?

Stepped through some promo vids (pretended to be "user" vids)
and they all played exactly the same themes.

Smells funny me thinks ... to put it mildly.

So it's more of a rompler? That's what I was thinking it was. Not an inherently bad thing since I do love me some Korg M1, but I could probably find preset packs for Diva/Repro/Obsession/other analog emulations that have the same sounds of this style right?

It's obviously made with multi-samples, just like a Kontakt expansion, and offering a few useful parameters to tweak, but nothing like a real virtual synth. So calling it a synth might be a stretch. But as a genre specific multi-sampled instrument collection, is does offer some truly authentic sounds from the 80s that would take a long time to replicate with a soft synth like Diva.
As far as the price goes, yes it does seem a tad high. Compared to Kontakt expansions this size (8GB), they usually go for around $99. But last year Audiolounge had a 50% sale on Halloween, so I'm waiting for that.

The demo sounds great. This a rompler not a synth. People pay many hundreds of dollars for Kontakt libraries. The price seems reasonable for a rompler with 8,1GB worth of sounds. Stuff like Nexus, Sampletank, Halion Sonic, Omnisphere cost much more than this and they're also sample based!

The advantage is a ready made product,
saves a lot of sweat to get a vsti there.
(A "real" vsti and presets is a good alternative, one can study them and start to create one`s own ).

The issue I have is to not make a distinction between a vsti and a rompler.

Seems to be trendy these days especially at genres like hiphop, trap etc.
But at least most, not all developers declare the goods,
what it is and what can be done with it plus the prices are set properly.

On this product I have the impression it blurs the boundaries intentionally
along with marketing skills.

Developers, be more transparent with your products
and don`t let users run into false assumptions!
