I just bought Cronox 3 from Linplug (I also own Albino2) and I gotta say this is one fantastic synth! This thing sounds amazing and is so intuitive. The presets are beautiful and it's really easy to load a wave file in and then beat the living heck out of it (in a good way!) I wish I had purchased this sooner as I could have saved a bunch of money on other VST's that don't live up to this instrument.
I also have to mention that Peter at Linplug is a great guy. Very prompt on his responses to my questions and just an all 'round nice guy.

All the very best,
PS I don't have any affiliation with Linplug, I just love their proiducts.
I don't own Cronox, but I do own Albino 2 and must agree; this is definitely one fat beast and rivals my Access Virus (hardware)... so for the $, you can't go wrong with this. I view Albino 2 and Spectrasonics Atmosphere to be a great compliment and with those two VSTs... you'll be struggling to find a better combination for the money.
