Actually, this was the same thing that scared me off from it at first. I'll admit, it's a very intimidating interface. After messing with it for a while, however, I've found it extremely powerful. I'm a good way through building a full patch bank for it that serves my goals (ie lead synths, poly synths, bass, pads). More powerful than superwave or analog warfare (though they have important uses too and both have wonderful guis).

As far as tweakbench, same kinda thing. They have wonderful granulators and things, though, and really with a synth it's more about the sound than the interface.

Besides, as time goes on I like the ultra-simple white-on-color layout more and more
