Great on the move syth
toxicwest, 24.05.2020
Lovely looking synthesizer with plenty of functionality and great sound!
Being small and having an option to power it by batteries makes it handy for taking it about and using it anywhere but the main downside from this because of its things can feel a bit fidgety. It doesn't try to copy the original 303 like Behringer did so it sounds different to the older versions but have the oscillator makes it a lot more fun!

Volca Ba

Die klangliche Überschneidung mit dem Volca Bass & Keys ist schon sehr groß.
Trotzdem ein klasse Synthesizer!
Der Klang ist top und die Bedienung verständlich und einfach.

Pas mal mais assez criard
gui30, 01.10.2019
Tout ce que je cite ci-dessous est en comparaison à ma Abstrakt Avalon, clone très proche d'une tb-303.

Sur cette Nubass la résonance est criarde, sèche, pas très agréable. C'est le point le plus négatif à mon audition. Cela me rappelle les clones assez moyen de tb-303 que j'ai pu tester il y a quelques années comme la Mam mb33 ou Syntecno TeeBee.

La différence entre la forme square et saw du VTO est quasi inaudible la plupart du temps. j'ai pu vérifier sur youtube ce n'est pas mon exemplaire qui a un problème c'est bien la machine qui est comme ça
à l'origine. Il y a bien quelques réglages qui permettent de mieux différencier les 2 formes d'ondes mais cela reste très léger. Est ce que cela viens du fait que c'est un VTO je ne sais pas..

Le sub oscilateur est tout juste assez fort, en fait pas assez fort, on aimerai bien pouvoir le pousser plus. De même pour sa saturation c'est vraiment léger, comme tout ou presque sur cette volca.

Le son deviens un petit peu crado quand on pousse le rate du lfo au max.

L'overdrive est pas mal mais encore un fois trop léger.

j'ai du monitoring Adam P33 avec un Sub10 couper a 85Hz, le moins qu'on puisse dire c'est qu'il ne se passe vraiment pas grand chose en dessous de cette fréquence.

Du midi send aurait vraiment étais bien venu mais ça n'a pas l'air d’être dans la logique de la série.

En la commandant je rêvais à une Tb303 ou X0xb0x entièrement pilotable en midi, mais ce ne fut qu'une énième déception. Ce n'est pas encore cette fois que j'aurais ce fameux clone complètement automatisable que je convoite depuis longtemps mais qui n'arrive jamais. Beringher peu-être? J’espère..

Malgré tout cela, le son est bon, c'est quand même de l'analo. Et plein de fonctionnalités sympa, le tout dans un format très portable.

Au final ce qui me viens a l'esprit après une bonne journée d'utilisation c'est : j'en ai eu pour 200€, pas plus pas moins.

Je pense tout de même la garder car pour le prix elle complétera très bien mon Avalon.
