I hate the default gui of Voyager, seriously putting me off. I tend to program my own sounds so for me this is important. I tried to use LimeFlavour's skin for it but that has a strange quirk in Reaper. Works without problems in Orion though but these days Reaper is my main daw so that's why I passed on Voyager. And let's not forget my primary goal here; cutting down on the amount of plugins

I eliminated TAL Dub II because it uses the most CPU of all the delays I tested and it doesn't really have any real unique functionality. Something like RetroDelay has a lot more features.

I have Glitch... and a few more plugins in that realm Will llist them when I get to that chapter though.

Agreed that it sounds nice but how many organs do you need. I ditched Trio mainly because of the nagscreen (it is donationware after all) and because there are good alternatives (being mainly NubiLE).

As you might have noticed I have a lot of (legaly registered) payware as well but I look at it from the other side; a lot of freeware is also comfortable to use and sounds as good (or sometimes even better) as payware.
