While F'em is currently available for the same price which is already ridiculous cheap, BioTek is on sale too and I would like to know your opinions about BioTek2.

Tried it yesterday. Didn’t like it. Reminds me of Analog Lab and Sampletank.

$24 is a steal. There's a lot to take in since the programming and modulating capabilities are seemingly endless. It's really easy to get lost breaking this down or creating your own patches. Every aspect of this sythn can be modulated and then some.

I recently bought Waldorf Largo which quickly turned into my favorite synth. Between Largo and Biotek 2, I don't have any desire to continually watch for new synths or synth deals. These two will keep me busy for an insane amount of time. Surprisingly, I might actually look to sell my other VSTs, not that I have many. Too bad I can't also sell REs. That's how much I like this combo of Biotek 2 and Largo.

For some, a minor point. For me, a dealbreaker. They tried to cram two envelopes into the edit page, so unless your envelopes are fairly short, you have to scroll back and forth to see the whole thing, or add more stages.

Ah, thank you. :) In that case, I might go for it. I own Biotek 1 (a freebie from Novation a few years ago) and am fascinated by the UI, it's a deep synth. The sounds it produces are pretty wild too. So maybe I'll give them my $24.
