That's correct. I'm not entirely pleased with Tracktion's 
implementation, it seems to me they missed some opportunities in the 
GUIs. There's no master output, the envelopes are not directly editable, 
and there are no on-board effects. I think they could have made a few 
usability improvements that might make stronger selling points for the 
synths. Sound-wise, I can't tell a difference between the GUI-less 
versions and Tracktion's, so about all you're getting is visual feedback 
for the envelope breakpoint curves. Which was worth the $15 they cost 
when on sale. :)
