The H.G. Fortune STS-26 VSTi Synthesizer costs €39 for the 8 voice version. Now the versions/options get a little screwy… There’s a Free version with built-in internal waves that can’t be modified. The registered (paid) version comes as an open system i.e. the waves are supplied as SF2 file and wave files up to 24 Bit can be loaded into each Oscillator slot. The free version is supplied with 128 patches – the €39 Pro version comes with 384 patches. Sort the mess out for yourself at their horrendous website: H.G. Fortune STS-26 VSTi Synthesizer.
