RE: OT $1.95 synth!

Well then.  Next time I run into a cute single girl I'll ask her about her
feelings towards computer based audio loopers.

Not at $99, but at $1.95... a painless paypal click and it's over.  I'm in
Vegas (not for fun) and I hate gambling, but if I loose a $2 bet on
this... it's really nothing.

Lose $1.95.  That's the key, it's so cheap.  If I'm out $1.95 all I'll
really think is, "Jeff was right."

That is true, there are a few great free VSTs.  A bunch of good free
VSTs... and a lot of crap that clutters your hard drive.  Sorry Jeff,
yours is one of the great ones, but so far I've only found a few.  If you
had a paypal donate site I'd be on it right now.  No doubt.

I don't know anything about that industry, but I can't help but think,
"This idea's so crazy, IT MIGHT JUST WORK!"  ... and if it doesn't, I'm
out $1.95 (which is actually applicable to a purchase, so if you want the
synth, it's not like you lost anything.  I was pretty impressed with the
light free version that came with ComputerMusic a few months ago.
