feines aus der virtuell analogen Welt
Dr.T, 31.03.2021
Der Cobalt 8X besticht sofort nach dem Auspacken mit seiner hochwertigen Haptik. Die Tastatur, die endlos Regler, das Gehäuse - alles perfekt - nichts klappert oder fühlt sich billig an. Das OLED-Display ist klar und schnell abzulesen.... alle Parameter die dort angezeigt werden sind klar gegliedert und man hat genau den Überblick, was man grad anwählt ( Curserlinien ). Auch die Algorithmen (34 pro Oszillatorgruppe) lassen sehr viel Spielraum zum Klangbasteln. Man ist überwältigt von den Möglichkeiten , und kann rumschrauben und schnell über die Patchtaste zurück zum eigentlichen Preset. Davon gibt es reichlich. Auch die 3 Multieffekprozessoren bieten herrliche Effekt-Möglichkeiten, die klare Delays (perfekt auch mit dem integrierten Arpeggiator) und tolle Räume bilden - alle Effekte klingen Hochwertig. Fazit: Der Cobalt 8x bietet zu einem Preis von 769,-€, erstklassige Features, die, um nicht nur an der Oberfläche zu kratzen, einen sehr lange kurzweilig beschäftigen, und dabei geniale ungehörte Resultate bringen. Der Sequenzer und der bereits erwähnte Arpeggiator bringen, in Verbindung mit den warmen Virtuell Analogen oder kristallklaren digitalen Sounds, gepaart mit den super Effekten - neue Ideen und mit der Fatar Tastatur und seinem Aftertoutch ein Hochwertiges Spielgefühl. Ein Dank geht auch an das Team von Thomann, die super wieder schnell geliefert haben.
