I think it`s underrated. The dimensions for sound-designing are amazing and tremendous in combination with byome and triad. 5 of 5 stars! good work
This was my first soft synth and it took trying out a few dozen others to appreciate just how unique it is. The thing that stands out most to me is the sheer variety of sound you can get from just the oscillator section. The bitter, terrain, and ash mixing algorithms are totally unique as far as I can tell and make for a virtually endless variety of sounds. The modular effects section is very user friendly and fun to experiment with. The only complaint I can think of is that midi automation can be a bit of a hassle. You can automate any CC via the macro module, but you need to set up the automation thru your daw rather than the plug-in itself. Overall a great soft synth if you love to experiment and craft unique sounds.

This is a great gcombine , with many functions, great for creating tests , effects for games and movies ! That's what I need!
It may lack some modulation stuff, and some faster times, but the sounds are incredible and the interface is so workflow friendly!
I like the concept. But I think there is no MIDI-Learn (nonMPE)!
Really the only synth I use on a regular basis anymore. Capable of most sounds - if you can dream them up!

I loved the effect modules.
This is a heavy contender when it comes to sound design. Five deep in this synth and create unique powerful complexed sounds. I can’t stress enough that this plug-in has its own characteristics and soul. Go check this one out. Worth every penny

Unfiltered Audio has poured a timeless amount of love, magic, and esteemed attention to detail with LION. It's a fascinating exploratory trajectory through the phenomena of sound. For any genre, for any level of programming knowledge. It's for artists, learning, creating, and building upon the rich legacy in sound. There's a great deal of misconception about what it takes to create certain timbres, genres, and or styles of music. The fact is, is that the answer lives inside of you and with amazing tools such as LION, The World is your Oyster. Congratulations on an instrument well done. Thank you Clifton Cameron Pendulum Distinction

Lion is a tool for exploration, so I don't care about factory presets. BUT: there's too few filter types - standard lp hp bp deal, plus there's only ONE filter slot - that's not enough! When Lion was announced, I expected all Byome filters to be in the polyphonic section, but that never happened. So please, we need formant, comb, resonator bank and more. Would be also great to switch the fx section to fully polyphonic mode.
