After using Groove rider 16 from JimAudio, I was really enjoying the sound of it’s internal synth. After reading about it, I learned it is using the sound engine of Poison 202.
I got my hand on Poison 202 and found that it’s a lot more powerful synth than the one used in GR-16.
It’s a close replacement for a Roland JP-8000!
