I was able to authenticate with Notion6 and Studio One using jBridge, but it didn't work. It's a shame, because I thought it was an interesting VST.

I've heard some good things about this, but It's not for me. I think Dexed is a better option for FM synthesis. Also didn't work in LMMS.

Very expressive sound, however it is unreliable to my cubase 9.5 x64, where (bridged) it crushed after some tuning (without affecting cubase, but stopping responding itself).

Probably the best free FM synth. I don't really like FM synths that well, but this this sounds great. The GUI is FUGLY. I love de la Mancha basic 64 as well. This guy is a very talented programmer. I mean this won the KVR Developer challenge. That should tell you something.
