It does everything (almost)
FC Music 14.07.2020
The problem about buying a machine like this is that it raises the bar so high that you need to go to Iridium/Kyra territory to be impressed.
It is extremely well thought out in terms of the human interface with 26 access buttons for each major function and 8 knobs to deal with parameters. Amending or starting a patch from new is a total breeze, I find myself able to put very 10 complex patches together in under an hour.
Sounds: Contrary to misconception this can sound very analogue when using the traditional saw and square/pulse waveforms with the FAT24DB Ladder filter. A slight detune and you're away. On top of that you get a further 200 or so waveforms which can be scanned during play for complex and evolving tones.
The effects section is excellent and the 32 slot mod matrix gives you as much as you could need.
It really is an all purpose tool and it does not surprise me why it has received the praise that has been heaped upon it since it's launch late last year.
Build quality is flawless, sound quality is pristine and the light show from all the knobs and buttons coming on is a lovely touch.
It is a superb instrument and great value for money.
5* out of 5 - Highly recommended

Great option

Fantastic synth, relatively small to its keyboard equivalent.
Sounds great, very versatile.
Build quality is very good & software has been bulletproof so far.
Firmware updates are still coming, added warm mode which helps with bass patches.

Hard to go wrong at this price point given the feature set.
