Un semi modulaire fascinant
Dreadlove, 13.03.2021
J'utilise ce synthé en home studio, en complément de VST. Je voulais à l'origine un Matriarch, mais j'ai opté pour la grand mère sur les conseils de Youtubeurs avertis. Je ne regrette pas mon choix. Le Matriarch pour plus tard, pourquoi pas?
C'est un excellent instrument qui permet de découvrir le semi modulaire sans trop se perdre, l'apprivoiser. Il permet de créer. L'absence de mémoire n'est pas gênant. ça oblige à comprendre ce qu'on fait. C'est un instrument de musique, pas une machine, il ne demande qu'à être compris. Le Grandmother a un énorme potentiel, patché ou pas.
Le son est rond, agressif, doux, puissant, subtil, violent, chaud, vivant, organique. Tout dépend. Je suis souvent surpris de voir comment, en touchant un potard, le son change, se transforme. C'est fascinant. Surprenant.
L'objet est robuste, très bien fini. Je le trouve beau dans sa sobriété. Seul défaut à mes yeux... il est un peu petit. Pas simple de le mettre sur un stand à hauteur d'homme assis. Mais ça peut être aussi un avantage. Donc...

It's perfect
pyret, 18.11.2020
This is my very first analogue synth and it is blowing my mind several times a day.
I'm just having more fun with this than I had with any musical instrument in years. The variety and beauty of its sounds, the experimentation it encourages, the happy mistakes - that is where the it outshines anything I have tried earlier. It seems like my guitar will be gathering some dust for a while......
I did not expect to like it this much.

The only con so far is that the midi clock is a bit buggy (fix is coming though) and that it sometimes get stuck on a midi note (easily fixed with keyboard commands. That is all.
