About Thrillogy-1 Virus TI soundset
“I’ve gotten to go through the Thrillogy Bank from CFA and I’m really impressed with these sounds, which straight away are useable and desireable, especially for melodic synth based styles like Progressive and Trance, though I think if I removed the reverb from some of the patches, they would find very comfortable homes amidst Electro & Psy as well.. A very well rounded bank and definitely highly recommended!!”

About Synergy Vol.1 Sylenth1 soundset
“One of my favorite virtual synths is the Sylenth 1 from Lennard Digital. Amongst a lot of different soundbanks I truely prefer the “Synergy Vol. 1 Soundset”. Not only that you can choose from a broad range of styles – the sounds use the whole power the Sylenth 1 is able to supply. Stabs & basslines are punchy and crisp, pads are smooth and spread a nice, warm and mystic atmosphere. The sounds are also ideal if you like to use them as a basis and give them own charakter.”

About Futured Episode 1, 2 & 3 Massive soundsets
“Massive is an amazing, “futured” synth, just because it doesn’t sound like all those standard VSTs. CFA-Sound demonstrates once more amazing creativity, the intention to create some new, never-heard sounds. Crazy basses and stabs, powerful pads, gooseflesh screamers – that guy thought of everything. I especially love FE2 which reveals the soft side of Massive. Although the sound is still… massive…”
