Fantastisch!
Lui2019, 28.04.2021
Super Gerät, insbesondere für den Preis. Klanglich erste Sahne mit sehr cleverer und vielseitiger Soundengine und das Userinterface ist so gestaltet dass alle Parameter recht zugänglich sind.

Der einzige Nachteil aus meiner Sicht ist dass das Handbuch etwas zu wünschen übrig lässt, allerdings findet man im Netz zahlreiche Demovideos, auch direkt von Modal , die für die ersten Schritte sehr hilfreich sind.

Beeindruckende Sounds
George V, 12.04.2021
Tolle Sounds und gute Möglichkeiten, diese zu verändern. Die Regelungsmöglichkeiten sind fast unendlich, wenn man sich mit analogen Synth auskennt.

Um die Möglichkeiten ausnutzen zu können, muss man sich aber mit dem Cobalt8 und der Bedienungsanleitung intensiver auseinander setzen. Wünschenswert wäre ein etwas größeres Display, auf dem man die Einstellungen besser ablesen könnte.

Der Service scheint zu funktionieren: Auf meine Anfrage erhielt ich sofort nicht nur die Möglichkeit, das Gerät zu registrieren, sondern auf Nachfrage auch eine Übersicht aller 300 Patches, die leider im Handbuch nicht aufgeführt sind. Eine Ordnung/Clastering in bestimmte Gruppen gibt es leider nicht.

Insgesamt und nicht zuletzt wegen der super Sounds eine sehr empfehlenswerte Bereicherung, bei dem der Cobalt8 jeden Cent wert ist.
