I've looked, boy have I looked, and I haven't found anything quite like Reaktor.
Amazing range of sounds from synths to samplers to effects for your external inputs.
So many with some much more potential its VERY intimidating.
Ease of Use
7 because the presets are VERY easy to tweak and save but the learning curve for building your own custom intruments/fx is steep.
This is the best piece of software I own. Now if they would just integrate Battery into it...
Is it possible to get anymore for your money?
Manufacturer Support
Had to use support once after a bad update. It was slow so I just reinstalled the software and updated to the previous verision until the bugs were worked out.
The Wow Factor
Very sexy in the geeky "Oh baby I'm gonna program you all night long" kinda way.
