Nave isn't about the Patches

If you're looking for a synth that's all about presets, you probably shouldn't buy Nave. There's Sylenth, Nexus, and Predator for that, among others. You buy Nave to create your own sounds, and for that Nave is one of the best (and, being that the developer is in the process of liberally implementing user-suggested features this could end up being THE best) wavetable synthesizers around. For those unconvinced, try your hand at the "hidden" close controls at the bottom of the gui, the modulation capabilities there extend the range of this instrument stratospherically. So yes, if you are only into using other people's sounds, Nave is a very good synth for presets and thus a four star. If you're into having an elite sound designing tool, five stars...and beyond that rating as soon as the major upgrade version becomes available this Summer (free for those whom already own Nave).

Great sounding Synth

Waldorf Nave Synth has many patches which you will not find in any other synths. Great addition to whatever soft synths you may have.
