Have you not experienced any problems when using this with Mixcraft? With MC7.7 I was always getting a report that VSCO2 had stopped working when a project that used it was loaded, constantly requiring its settings to be readjusted.
Mixed thoughts on this offhand, just starting using it. The instruments generally sound kind of "OK" (some are better than others). I think it would be fine for live performances, but not sure I'd use it for recording.
