The Native Instruments FM7 virtual synth was easy to install and easy to get up and running as I had no compatibility issues with my machine. The interface of the synth is pretty easy to follow, and the presets make for some great sounds that you can choose quick and easy. There is also a great deal of control over these presets as well as the ability to create your own sounds. I don't have a manual for this so I can't speak to how helpful it is or not.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I am running the FM7 on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I am running this mostly with Apple Logic, but also use it as a standalone unit. I have never had a problem running this in either situation, as both are stable. I never run more than one of these, so I don't know how well it would run if you had a bunch of these up at once - it would probably slow your system down as the synth has a lot to it. All in all, I've never had any problems running the FM7.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Native Instruments FM7 for about four years, and they have since come out with the FM8, which I have yet to use. Overall, I think the FM7 is a great sounding virtual synth with a ton of different parameters and presets. It is easy to use once you get the hang of it, and is really a Yamaha DX7 emulator, which is the most famous FM (frequency modulation) based synth made in the mid 1980s. This synth won't cost you too much, especially if you get it within the Komplete bundle. Even if you get it separate from the bundle, it is still a great deal considering how great this sounds and how wide the array of synth sounds you can get from this. For those who want DX7 tones in the box without the hassle of the external keyboard, this is the virtual synth for it.
