      “This one Spanks them all! 
      After trying several other products and almost giving up on my project idea, I stumbled across these guys. 90% of the peopel out there are just repackaging AWS. And that is great if you have that level of project. I still use them for smaller things. But for larger projects this spanks all the others I have tried.
      The main feature that won me over was their voice cloning. And that was just their 1.0 product. Then the 2.0 product came out and they made the awesomeness even more awesome. It’s only in beta at the moment of writing this. But I have already switched to using it exclusively.
      I am on their unlimited plan and it has already paid its self back a few times over. Their support is super friendly. Everything about these guys is quality and awesomeness!
