What a crazy synth!
Bryan104, 24.12.2020
This synth is built like a tank, sounds really crazy, and is one of the most original and inspiring instruments I have used in recent memory. It rewards experimentation, creativity, and just turning knobs, and you will end up with some of the most other-worldly sounds you have ever heard.

Because it is such an "organic" experience, as SOMA Labs puts it, it does have the drawback of not having patch memory or recall of any kind. So make sure you record what you make, and download their recall sheets just in case you need to get it replicated later on. It also doesn't accept midi, but does accept CV. That being said, this instrument performs best when it is played like an instrument! The conductive touch points react differently depending on how you press them, which adds to the expressivity.

The levels can be a little low at times, so having a nice DI or mic pre to run it into will help with getting good levels with a bit less noise.

Overall this has been a wonderful addition to my studio, and I am going to use it extensively on the films I score in the future.

10/10. It's an amazing synth. If you want something unique, this is the instrument for you.

wild beast on its own right
herediad, 24.03.2021
honestly, after 6 months with it, I realized that you really have to invest time to master the nuances of the frequency modulations, going default is already amazing. creating something with it it's a matter of balance of letting it go and surf ( and record!) and fine shape the sound that you manage to get.

recommend for those who want very tripping sounds,but is very hard to get unique sounds abuse of the delay is recommended.

This is a special kind of gear. You must get used to it and you must decipher it, in order to play it well, which is a fun part. It sounds amazing, though a little too characteristic, which can be a plus, because you'll have to find your ways to make it sound like you want it to.

Absolut genius for pads or soundscapes. You get there pretty easy.

The only downside for me is that you don't have real envelope control and no filters.
