Is Absynth worth it?
It is still a very worthwhile synth. It is cumbersome to program and I don't actually reach for it that often because of that. But every time I open it back up I seem to fall in love with it again. Its quirks and limitations actually offer it quite a distinct sound, there's still nothing quite like Absynth.

What is Absynth good for?
