yes NI, yes
the deeper I dig in, the more I enjoy the endless possibilities.... I've taken to running the standalone version on a separate laptop so I can play it with a controller recording the reults as an overdub onto my main machine, often through a miced guitar amp or tube PA.... its most fun whacking keys down and letting all the modules turn your performance into whack.... fun to drive it with a modern analog sequencer via USB into my 'Reaktor' laptop too
I didn't reallyg et into this software until recently... I think I got turned off by the early versins, but after getting the player to try Prism I decided to go ahead and buy version 6 and I am so happy with the purchase
Amazing modular software
I love the ability to build different instruments and effects, and the addition of Blocks makes it act more like a typical modular synth. There are some things about the Blocks implementation that I think could be improved, but this software is fantastic and inspiring. There is also a HUGE library of user-created ensembles that gives you a lot of premade options,, which you can then customize. or you can build things starting from scratch.
