Nexus 2 is the best VST I have used so far. Honestly the sounds are way more alive than when compared to Toxic and Sytrus. It is expensive, but I am so happy to own it. The $2000 is only if you want to buy it with every sound pack they offer! Nexus 2 by itself comes with tons of sounds, and if you buy it in a bundle deal, you pretty much get a sound pack for free!
The display of the product is very nice and easy to use, nothing complex, but it can also be as complex as you want it to be. They sell it on a site called www.refx.com. When I bought Nexus 2, I bought it in a bundle. This Is Very Important, if you are looking to buy Nexus 2, make sure you buy one of the bundles! You pretty much get one of their packs for free doing it this way! I chose the Nexus 2 Bundle: Instruments. I was very happy with this product. If you can’t find the bundle section, its right above the Nexus 2 picture, it is kind of hard to see, you can also click here to look at the different bundles.
www.Refx.com has very good customer support also. You submit a ticket, and they have usually replied to me the next day. I bought the sound pack called “Total Piano” and was so unhappy with it. It honestly was not piano, it had all these SFX sounds and it was not what I was looking for. So I complained to them, and they offered to exchange it for another one! When I chose what I wanted, they said are you sure, and told me about the most popular products at the moment. It did change my mind and I got HandsUp Lead Vol. 1. I would recommend this pack. But the awesome thing is they didn’t say anything about the Total Piano. So I sent a ticket in telling them that they didn’t exchange the packs, and they told me to keep both of them for free! So they have very good customer support, and their product has made my music sound that much more alive.
This gets a 5 for the unreal sounding quality of it, the awesome customer support, and the way nexus 2 looks is very nice. It does have a few problems when it comes to creating automation clips with it inside FL Studio, but this is an FL Studio problem, not Nexus 2 . There is a way around it, you can watch this video to find out how.
One thing to mention is that Nexus 2 does not really give you the ability to “create your own sounds from scratch”. You are able to tweak the sounds given tremendously, but just keep that in mind when purchasing!
