I'm seriously considering buying a copy of Toxic III, which is a software synth VSTi plug-in. I just want to be able to quickly add decent synth sounds and effects to my tracks to make them less dull. I have fiddled around with the demo of this one and it seems pretty good. The "Sequence" section of the plug-in is what is really interesting me at this point.
The reason I am not leaping immediately for Fruity Loops Studio is that the standalone doesn't work on Windows Vista Premium, even with the latest vista patch. When I have attempted to use the VSTi plug-in, it has worked but with extremely limited functionality. Under Windows XP everything worked fine... anyway..
I was wondering if anyone knew about this one, or other similar products out there.. like Reaper is so much quicker to use and handles more stuff and it's completely free.. At this stage though, Toxic III is looking pretty good.
Here's the info for Toxic III, you can also download the demo that I have from this same page:
