Clearly this is not an instrument you need in every project. But when you need it, Enzio Puzzovio Hurdy Gurdy is very useful and usable. The UI is user friendly and self explaining. A nice virtual instrument to have to have and keep in mind that you have it: my advice is to test it in styles you would't primarily associate with this instrument. Positive surprises are waiting ....
