Great overall Idea, bad oscillators.

the_man_who, 29.12.2017
If you just need it create drones and noises it may be great for you.
If you need to play melodies in-tune - spend your money elsewhere.
It is impossible to calibrate the oscillators to track acceptably even within 2 octaves. Seems like a design problem. The good thing is it is more modular than most semi-modulars on the market and at least one can use separately the midi2cv( works ok with other modules), mixer, filter, lfo, adsr env etc with other gear you may have.

Big sound in a small package

Matt123, 21.07.2017
I use this as part of a live rig with a beatstep pro and other synths. The sound quality of the SV-1 is fantastic, all the waveforms are very musical, and the filter is smooth and buttery. You can even get it sounding very drippy with the resonance dialled up without the filter going into crazy self-oscillation. The ADSR is crisp and snappy, my only gripe with it is that it can be 'clicky' when the attack is set to zero. Personally i prefer a separate ADSR for the amp CV, so the first eurorack upgrade I'll get is a seperate modulation geberator (maths) to get some more interesting modulation on the amp and filter. The midi module is great, and the tracking is awesome. The digital LFO doesn't divide far enough down for my liking (but it does multiply up) so I'll be getting a clock divider and syncable LFO at some point too. For the money there is a lot of functionality in such a small package. Just look at how much it would cost you to build a eurorack modular with the same feature set, and it would also take up a lot more room in your case!
