Enourmous sounds in a tiny box
audible 12.02.2022
A great tool for timbrical experimentation. Lots of interesting textures out of the box, plus all the samples you might want to add. The ability to granulate live audio allows for some nifty tricks, such as making a mono audio signal both polyphonic and stereo. The small form factor may be a put-off for some people and a bonus for others. In my case it was meant to be part of a portable setup, so it's OK. The small box means audio and MIDI ins and outs are 3'5'' jacks, which is workable yet not that ideal. Having said that, the tiny screen it is very responsive and makes the most of the synth (and I have big clumsy fingers), which is totally usable standalone and in a live situation. Of course most parameters are midi-controllable anyway. Given the fatness of the sound, 4 voices of polyphony are enough. Easy to learn and control, and tons of inspirational sounds.

Great synth but expected more at this price
Nononana 11.11.2022
The good: great sound, amazing possibilities, line in granulation, can be used as an effects processor for line in signal, portable, small footprint, cute

The bad: interface navigation is clumsy, switching presets requires 3 steps (4 if you want to get to the sequencer to trigger a note and hear the preset you selected), preset switching is not smooth, there is a glaring half second gap and the previous sound is interrupted abruptly, no usb midi, no bluetooth midi.

For the price, I would have expected usb midi and a smoother preset switching.
Hopefully the interface navigation can be improved in future firmware updates and usb midi added.

Conclusion: I love it, I’m keeping it, I use it everyday and it brings a smile to my face, but I don’t know if I can justify buying it again if it were stolen. Maybe if it were 80 to 100 euros cheaper?

Fantastic creative tool
JohnHark 30.01.2023
Very compact but powerful. Intuitive workflow. You can turn any sound into a deep synth. Very ambiant, but with the right samples it can do almost anything. The editing is a bit limited but it does make the machine very easy to use, and by being creative you can still produce an infinity of sound if you use the internal recorder correctly. Minus one star, because the connectivity is a bit limited with the mini jacks.

Klein, aber fein
Pete Midi 18.02.2022
Hier scheiden sich die Geister: ich fand das Format von Anfang an attraktiv, für andere mag ein Synthesizer, der kleiner ist als ein Game Boy eher abschreckend sein. Die berechtigten Zweifel an der Bedienbarkeit wurden in meinem Fall auch relativ schnell entkräftet. Es ist wirklich erstaunlich, wie schnell sich der Lemondrop erlernen läßt, nach kurzer Zeit sind mit dem Touchscreen, den 4 Tastern und den 2 Endlosencodern alle Einstellungsmöglichkeiten erschlossen. Natürlich ist das kleine Display ein Kompromiss, der aus meiner Sicht nicht ohne Stylus geht, aber dann geht es eben auch ganz gut. Insbesondere auch die reichhaltigen Modulationsmöglichkeiten sind damit gut nutzbar.

Die granulare Soundengine ist sehr gut implementiert, bietet zwar weniger Stimmen als mein GR-1, dafür aber 2 granulare Oszillatoren und insgesamt mehr Möglichkeiten. Für mich ein herausragendes Feature ist der externe Input, mit dem sich ein hochpegeliges Linesignal anstelle eines Samples granular prozessieren läßt. Das erweitert den Anwendungsbereich signifikant und macht unglaublich viel Spaß (YT: Lemondrop - fruitful grains). Ich bin auf jeden Fall froh, Ersatz für meinen GR-1 gefunden zu haben, bei dem mir das Projekt- bzw. Speichermanagement zunehmend auf die Nerven ging - selbst das Speichern und Laden der erstellten Sounds ist eine Zumutung.

Was bei meinem Lemondrop unschön ist: 3 der 4 Taster-LEDs flackern hochfrequent, was man dann auf Videoaufnahmen als störende Aliasfrequenzen sieht. Wenn es hier noch eine Bewertung der Verarbeitung gäbe, müsste ich da einen Stern abziehen.
