I have been hesitant to respond because I wanted to cross-reference another post first, but the vi-control.net forum has been unreachable (to me, at least) for days now. Someone had posted there about a new soft synth done by the Absynth programmer. I'm not sure if this is the one or not.

That might be Plasmonic by Rhizomatic Software's Brian Clevinger. Synthtopia attributes Clevinger as the creator of Absynth (and describes Plasmonic as leveraging physical modeling with subtractive synthesis). It's available for pre-order, but is priced at $99USD, rather than one euro.
Back to Genesis Pro, I was unaware who this guy Ummet Ozcan is - the interwebz describe him as a Dutch DJ / EDM artist. And this begs the question for me - is he also a software developer (I can't find any attribution to this)? If not, who developed this and why are they letting it go for essentially free?
In the video he says he's been at this for 8 years. I got the impression this was his pet project. Charging one Euro is sort of his gift to the music world. " It's important to share with everyone".
That's cool. Unfortunately I'm not sure I heard anything I really like or thought sounded all that unique. His words/pitch don't match up with the sounds I'm hearing. "A synth has to have character" and then I hear this movie sound-trackish thing that sounds right out of a well equipped sample library. "This synth can make any sound". That's a red flag to me. Nah- think I'll pass.
I wonder if I can take home a Moog vocoder for 1 Euro down payment?
If his marketing campaign is successful, it could crash servers, both for download and payment platforms.
There will be reviews. Early reviews can be revealing but it will take a deep dive to find what this is capable of doing. At least one of the reviews should reveal the CPU requirements.
I've lived up until now without this plugin so I am fine with waiting until more is known. I am also a fan of "cheap, free, or on sale" software. I don't recall ever paying full price for any audio software, I always wait for a sale and here always is one - eventually.
When the time comes, it is quite likely that I will gamble a Euro, currently that is about 91 cents. Cheers, Kuru.
Meanwhile I´ve read it´s made w/ Synthedit,- no kidding ! That explains why it´s 32Bit only.
Today, I´d not even pay a single EUR for a Synthedit VST device. It will have some CK modules under the hood and the rest incl. GUI is Synthedit then. Works stable when done right in 32Bit systems,- but never in 64Bit systems ... And don´t even ask for a Mac version then.

Isn’t OP-X Pro-II 64 bit Synthedit? Works and sounds great - still.
