The features are absolutely not lacking anything in any way whatsoever, in comparison to the original synths it's even got more features.

Price paid

489 euro

If you don't already know how to use the original synths you may need to invest some time in that but the standalone and vst interface is really easy to use.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The sounds are absolutely unbelievable. The Legacy package contains soft synths of the MS-20, Polysix, Wavestation and the Legacy Cell in which you can combine these different synths and their effects. I've played both the original MS-20 and Polysix and I must say I was totally blown away by the accuracy in which these lagendary synths are reproduced. There are even extra options that the original synths didn't have. For instance, the original (monophonic) MS-20 can now be turned into a 32 voice counting polyphonic synth. The same goes for the Polysix. The MS-20 also has it's additional unison unit built in.

I've never had any problems with the software besides the fact that you really need a heavy processor to deal with these synths. I've got a Sony VAIO laptop with a 3gHz processor and if I run about 6 of these synths at the same time (about half of them having lots of voices and the other half one or two) you can almost litterally see little heatwaves rising from my beloved computer.

OVERALL OPINION

I absolutely LOVE the Legacy collection because it brings you back to those good old analogue days. The love factor is increased by the MS-20 controller that you get with the package. If you give it some of your love, you'll get back ten times the love you put in.
