Bought the synthsquad and all I can say is wow! It sounds like programming a high quality hardware analog synth. I have not heard any other soft synth giving me the feeling this much. My only wish would be an option for a bigger GUI. I use a 30 inch Apple and it's a little hard on the eye from a distance. Especially Cypher which could also use a better distinction for the eye between modules. (Maybe darker borderlines and bolder and bigger name of the modules like WAVE FILTER etc) It takes time to realize which part is what when you look at it.
Other than that thanks for an amazing package of synths. It was well worth the wait : )

Yes, we had many discussions about this internally. Our key drivers were that we really wanted to have all the controls for each synth (Fusor aside) on one page so you don't have to spend loads of time page-swapping to program them and we wanted it to be usable at the minimum screen resolutions of both 1440x900 and 1280x1024 (removing docks/taskbars etc.) which meant we had to design for the minimum 1280x900 and still not be a screen hog! It would have required significant additional cost to have multiple sets of graphics for different resolutions.
Let me add, I'll be the first to say I wish the text were a little larger, but hopefully you can understand at least our intentions! Hopefully we'll be able to refine things as time goes on.
