The sounds seem very tuned to EDM and trance. It's ok... Some issues. Sustain pedal doesn't work well. Just seems kinda buggy overall.
Just curious, how can a synthesizer be suitable for particular genre of music? If it is considered good for EDM, is it bad for prog rock, or big band, or jazz, or baroque? I don't really understand the logic. It's like saying a trumpet isn't good for some kinds of music. A trumpet may not be good for flute parts, but any kind of music can be played with it. A wavetable synthesizer is only limited to the sounds in its tables, which could be anything, unless they are locked and unchangeable. There are wavetable synths which can load your own wavetables, so it seems better to use one of those and not have to worry about not being able to play the music you prefer. I don't like EDM so this recommendation tends to urge me not to download this synth. The recommendation is kind of counterproductive.
I think there may be some functions that are more suited to those styles than anything else, but it has all the usual functions that can be used for any style. I have created new age sounds and real instrument emulations with other synths that said they were designed for dance styles.

Perfect for leads and basses

Sounds decent, however it has multiple bugs (mouse cursor disappears after manipulating the knobs, unresponsive, throws errors) which makes it very hard to do any sound design, therefore I would not recommend this to anyone till it is not fixed. GUI is nice tho. My DAW - FL Studio 20.
It's endorsed by Patrick Starfish and he lives under a rock, which makes him a qualified electronic music producer, so your arguments are invalid.
