A great synth I'm going to use for years to come
ofca, 16.06.2020
Dreadbox here provides a deceptively simple synth - 2 oscillators, two filters, two LFO's and a reverb. But the range of sounds and strange rhytms and modulations you can achieve with this thing is going to entertain me for years to come. It excells at drones, but is capable for more standard bass and leads sounds. I find it very unique.

That being said, two more things come to mind - the envelopes aren't the snappiest and the LFO modulation can't be synced to an external clock. Some would say these are the cons, but for me they are just part of the synth - the Nyx is not designed to be very precise, and (like the Greek diety it is named after) lends itself more to the ephermal/experimental/sound design/surprised-in-a-good-way side of things.
