Adult mini-synth with great price performance

Eliza W., 20.07.2017
I bought the Reaction CS, because I have a compact? Analog? Synthesizer for playing and experimenting, which later becomes not useless. Full MIDI support was important.

At first the Reface looks like a toy keyboard, but it is a real synthesizer. You can definitely elicit powerful sounds.

As waveforms, there are saw, rectangle / PWM, FM, ring and sync. For this purpose, a second oscillator is present, which can be used either against the first detuning or modulation. Instead of completely free selection of ingredients, we get a maggifix for interesting sounds.

Practically, the effect section, which simply lacks a reverb. So you do not have to play dry even in spontaneous sessions.

On the Minitasten you can play quite well. The operating elements are clearly arranged. The fader paths are quite short, but not disturbing. The faders have the same effect, the keyboard as well, good haptics without rattling makes for joy. The processing is great! The housing is made of solid plastic and is reinforced with metal struts, also the control panel is made of metal.

Contrary to the trend, Yamaha equates a matching 12V power supply. Also the required cable whip for the MIDI connections is not an extra accessory? very fair! The USB port is not a micro crusher, but fullsize. It is used as a MIDI connector (without a Mac), audio or power does not work.

You can also run the synth without annoying apps, I save my patches via MIDI on the computer. Because of the compactness it is often on the desk, simply by USB to the keyboard and serves to the notes input.

The audio outputs (mono / stereo and headphone) are full-fledged 6,3mm jack sockets. A volume pedal can also be connected. When the headphones are plugged in, the speakers are muted. They are a nice bit of control.

Technical settings such as a MIDI channel or loudspeaker can only be changed by pressing pushbuttons of certain piano keys when the unit is switched on and read off by means of flashing signals from the LEDs? As this is, ONLY in the manual. Fortunately, you rarely ran.

The Reface offers great price performance, where competitors save significantly? Can be due to the fact that it was originally set at $ 500.

Per:
+ Diverse sound forms
+ Intuitive operation
+ For beginners as well as advanced
+ Processing / haptics
+ Effects on board
+ Cheeky good looks
+ Power supply and adapter included
+ Reasonable connection possibilities

Cons:
- Envelope is only triggered once in polyphony
- technical settings are not possible without manual

An unsuccessful idea

FrancoisS, 03.06.2017
I was looking for a small portable keyboard 37 keys with hp, to be able to practice on the move.
The +:
- correct manufacturing quality
- looper anecdotal but nice
- correct keyboard touch
- quality sounds
The - :
- expensive
- the looper nice but anecdotic
- the ergonomics never seen (and hopefully never seen again) of the looper
- the midi looper whose recording is modified by the changes of the keyboard setting.
- no memory for saving settings
- no application delivered with the device
- no USB cable provided, no connection to PC or smartphone. The doc is almost silent.
- no Android app to backup
- Soundmondo is just laughable
- need to install driver for USB connection
- need to update the latest firmware
- apparently if you want to connect your smartphone (Apple only) via bluetooth, you must buy a special midi / bluetooth transmitter (UD-BT01) almost even cheap (41 eur)
- finally, made in China (but expensive anyway)

Conclusion
It was the only one that met my criteria, I had no choice.
Too expensive for what it is. Limit fetching of g ....
