I was watching some reviews and videos on Spire last days because it is one o the few synths I still want to add to my library and got to know Audiaire's Zone VST and now I am hesitating which one of them should be in my library or if both should which one might have a highest priority for making music. But searching on the internet I haven't found very much user feedback and even less with Reason as the main DAW.
I find most of the things it offers are already covered in the plugins I already own, specially with Serum, but it has a nice feature that is very interesting for me and seems pretty easy to use, I'm talking about the kind of step sequencer it has, very similar to what the RE Super Audio Cart has but assignable to any parameter and customizable for each parameter as well. You can see what I'm talking about here on the video starting from minute 1:30.
As I tend to make very rhythmic/percussive music, this way to work with arpeggiator/sequencers inside the plugin itself is something I really like, that's something I could confirm after using Super Audio Cart. The thing is that apart from that I don't see anything special about this VST and even when I can afford it and splice is offering it as a rent-to-own product I found Spire to have better sound - at least from what I've seen so far on internet. But Spire hasn't such a rent-to-own plan and never seems to come lower than 129€ when in sale.
What would you say? Have you had experiences with this synth? and spire as well? are both worth having long term or just one of them should be enough? or maybe Serum is already enough? Just want to hear your thoughts
