Since my Crave arrived a couple of weeks ago, it's had much more use than any of my other synths. There's just something about the immediacy of the interface, the simplicity of the single oscillator and the gorgeous creamy sound of the ladder filter that makes it my go-to synth.
I've got other monosynths, but none of them sound any good without effects added on. The Crave just sounds fantastic as it is.
I ordered extra patch leads but I needn't have bothered. The six that comes with the Crave is more than enough. The only quibble I do have is that mine shipped with a European power supply when I live in the UK. But it's one of those power supplies that allows you to slide on a different connector depending on which country you live in. I've written to Thomann and I assume they'll ship the right one soon.
Until then though, I can use my Virus, or I can use my Crave -- but I can't use both.
But that's a small issue and I'm sure Thomann will resolve it soon. If you're thinking about buying one, stop thinking about it and just buy it. I guarantee you, you won't regret it. It has to be the best value for money on the market.
And Thomann's customer service was first rate.
Addendum: Thomann's customer support tell me that because their Craves are intended to be sold in Germany, they only come with the European connectors. This was a bit disappointing given that they have a UK facing website and some proportion of their business is with the UK. At the very least, I would have expected them to tell me how I could actually get a working power supply -- even if that meant buying an add-on.
If this is important to you, you probably want to buy your Crave in the country where you live rather than from Thomann.
Additionally, the gate length function doesn't work on mine, so it's probably going to have to be returned. I initially thought it was probably an issue with firmware, but I'm on the latest release and it still isn't working. That shouldn't be a deal breaker though. It's still a great synth and astounding for the money. I want a replacement, not a refund.
