Is the synth that comes with Cubase any good?

I remember years and years ago really liking the Steinberg synth that came with Cubase SL3 - is the one that comes with the latest version of Cubase any good as well?

I'm on C5 and it has some good synths and Halion 1 (basically a player) bundled with it. Some of the editing is a bit of a head scratcher on the Mystic but presets are abundant and you can gain some knowledge about how it works from them. I don't know what comes with Cubase 7.

Was it the Monologue that came with SL3? I still have that and still use it.

I always recommend these free synths; they are very basic but good to use. They've moved onto paid for ones now too.

I believe the old synths may be available on the Steinberg ftp site as well.

And if you still have the old Cubase version that includes the synth you like, you can probably just drag the .dll over th the new Cubase and it'll work just fine (I did that with the a3 synth from my old SX3, into Cubase 6.5).
