Just picked this up! It's actually pretty great sounding.

Any idea about what hardware they are emulating?

214 MB disk space requirement, because it installs the authorization software as well. :\

At least it does automatic updates this way as well of all the NI installed stuff, which includes Absynth in my case. I am curious how it sounds..... oh look, Absynth gets a 1 GB update .

-edit-
Sounds interesting. However, NI does appear to produce the slowest installers in the known universe, which I may point out is not really the case for Supercharger, though it does include its DRM in a huge included package. Here's a cookie, and the 12 ton brick attached to it. This slowest-ever installer was the Absynth update. Amazingly slow. It felt like time had stopped, and it never even let me install the library content anywhere but in the system drive common files. Primitive.

That's a nice reason to skip it.

Is it the same installer as for Kontakt?
So it's no extra bug for Kontakt-users?

It is 214 MB but that includes a lot
AAX
RTAS
X32
X64
Service center
Installed it is about 30 MB for the plugin plus service center

I always thought of NI as bloated for a long time , but the RAM and CPU usage is actually comparable and better than most on my system.

Move out the Samples folder elsewhere manually and change the path to it in Absynth's properties. Easy peasy.

Also, unpack the installer EXE manually with Ultimate Extractor and there's your install for Windows XP. You don't need W7 to do it.

You do need to install Service Center - but that one is still available for XP, IIRC.

So, could I use my wife's Vista machine to install it and then just copy the DLL to a stick and copy it to my XP machine?
