Very nice. All the plugins and virtual instruments are nice. I've been working diligently since I got it. It draws me into the studio. I uppgraded from a SL 2.0 version and the only complaint I have is that some of the old plugins (the delays, verbs and compressors) aren't there so when I bring a song started on the SL version it takes a while to get it sounding right.. Sometimes the delays were set up to create a rythmn and that can be a pain to get it exactlay the way it was but other than that this is really nice.
