This might go well on the desktop with the 0Coast.

Is it wrong to crave for this just because it's so cheap? :woah:

Interesting to see the sequencer they’ve designed turning up in a number of products (it looks similar to the one in the Odyssey)

Wow. They should call this unit 'Leftfield', 'cause that's where it came from. Sounds absolutely gorgeous, imo. And the price will make it hard to refuse! :yay:

With 16 voice polychain that’s a pretty cheap way to get a basic poly synth. Get some mults and route your Euro modulation sources and it’s a not so basic poly!

Like the Neutron and DM12/6, it's nice to see them make another original synth that isn't an obvious rip off of something else (even if the core chips/circuits are not so original..)

Well that came out of nowhere. Nice little synth!

Reminds me a lot of my first synth, the Micromoog... but with the sequencer, MIDI, patchbay, and a nice little form factor.

The features are almost identical to the Moog Mother-32.

Where do they find these people for demos? Good grief!

Yikes not a stellar demo


But it looks like it has plenty of potential particularly for the price!

I humbly eat my words.. Rather similar indeed.
(But hey, at least they wavered on the cosmetics a bit this time! :hihi: )

I can't quite tell. How does it look to compare in terms of patch points to the Neutron? It seems like it has fewer, right?

Michael Thorpe has quite a history with analog sounds (head of Touched By Sound and Mode Machines). In the past he has been rumoured to have a rather loose concept of handling copyrights, just like Uli Behringer (I'm not judging anyone here, just remembering).

He definitely knows what these controls do, though (and of course he said something completely different, perfectly intelligably, if you were referring to the 0:40 mark).


Cheers,
Bert

€150

The sequencer alone is worth that.
And it sounds great, one big sweet spot.

I noticed that the resonance didn't influence the output level of the filter.
Also at full resonance, it self oscillates but doesn't overpower the input signal.

No brainer buy.
Shall I ... blablabla ... to thee.

The more you pay for something, the less likely you are to critise it.

Doesn't everybody who wanted an M32 pretty much have on by now and either use it or sold it along?

I see people buying it for the sequencer, maybe, but only if it will actually transmit the transpose changes out as CV for external use.
