Infinity 2.0: Electronic Musician Review, August 2002 Issue
Len Sasso checks out Infinity 2.05 in the August 2002 issue of Electronic Musician Magazine. He takes a closer look at the new audio features, interface enhancements, and Infinity's new audio plug-in and hosting capabilities. He also provides tutorials on creating your own synthesizers and super VST and DXi plugins. (What is a super VST or DXi plug-in? Take any combination of VST instruments and effects, DXi instruments and DirectX effects and combine them with your own custom audio processing and then use your entire creation as a VSTi or DXi plug-in.)

Infinity 2.0: Sound On Sound Review, April 2002 Issue
Martin Walker explores the depths of Infinity 2.0 for the April 2002 issue of Sound On Sound Magazine and has a lot of positive things to say. Pick up the magazine to check out the full review.
"Infinity probably has more MIDI processing options than any other available utility, and for anyone using Cakewalk's Sonar or Pro Audio v8 or higher, the MFX format lets you explore real-time MIDI processing techniques. Hopefully Steinberg and Emagic will soon add MIDI plug-in functions to Cubase VST and Logic Audio respectively, but in the meantime you can still do this with the shareware utility Hubi's LoopBack by intercepting a MIDI steam, processing it within an Infinity patch, and then forwarding it to another destination."
"It's obvious that Sound Quest have devoted a lot of time and effort to perfecting the Infinity engine, and I found it easy to understand how everything fitted together. I was extremely impressed by the huge range and scope of its Object library, and with its comprehensive plug-in support. Like NI's Reaktor, you can use it to create your own synths, samplers, and effects, but its huge MIDI processing library also opens up deeper and more flexible Korg KARMA-like algorithmic possibilities."
Infinity 2.0: Computer Music Review, April 2002 Issue
Leading British music technology magazine Computer Music reviews Infinity 2.0 for its April issue and awards it a "Smart Buy" award with a 9 / 10 rating. Pick up the magazine and check out the review and tutorial. Here are just a couple of observations drawn from the text:
"The real magic of Infinity, and what sets it apart from its few rivals, is that you're not just limited to constructions synths, effects or samplers..."
"We just haven't got the room here to cover all the possibilities Infinity has to offer..."
"One thing's for sure: the synth building possibilities of Infinity are, well, infinite, and as long as you're willing to spend time getting to know it, you'll never run out of sounds. The wide toolkit of synthesis, filter and MIDI Objects affords huge sonic potential..."
