A very trippy toy with serious potential
Ettore2000 04.06.2021
GENERAL OVERVIEW
I bought it as an fx unit to integrate with my synth setup, as the title implies this isn't intended to be a serious tool for music production but I personally always find a way to snuck it into serious (paid) projects because of the flavor it adds to sounds.

PROS
-compact and easy to carry around (nice party gimmick too)
-very intuitive and you will build muscle memory fast with it
-entirely plastic but feels quite rugged
-ms 20 filter makes everything you feed it sound fantastic
-the delay circuit sounds veery analog and definitely has a flavor
-the delay can self-resonate giving really interesting tones when coupled with the filter
-the aux input is easily overloaded giving the signal a very nice clipping (clipping a piano and then adding delay sounds fantastic)
-you can circuit bend it if you have the know-how and the unit overall is quite simple to take apart and mod (the internet is full of guides on this)

CONS
-VERY noisy, if you use it on a main mix element you will need to fix it in post
-powered by two AAAs, they need to be swapped regularly (this is why I modded mine to accept a micro-usb cable as a power supply)
-the synth part is useless in a musical setting, good for SFX tho

Overall I really enjoy mine and I would buy it again, it would be a cool gift for a musically incline friend too :)

Fun instrument/effect
"Me" is too short a nickname so I picked this one inst 04.09.2019
This little portable unit is a lot of fun. I use it as a simple synth for sound effects, and as a simple delay effect with my mike. For the price, it's quite useful. Also suitable as a toy.

Downsides:
- battery power only
- limited functionality (duh)
- noisy
- connection to DAW/mixer requires Y-cable
- may get you hooked on full-price synths and effects

Nice Analog Delay with Filter Soundgenerator and Looper
H33R0 21.08.2021
A small device with great sond and possibilities. Its analog. The delay and filter sound very good. The Soundgenerator lets you generate the psy sweeps as well as the classic dub siren telephone sound :D
Also can use it to create bass samples.
Or just noisify some audio or use as a filder device. Fun and usable!

Very fun
VelvetGuitar 23.04.2018
This is great fun to mess around with either on its own or with a synth.

Only issues are:
It has a plastic feel to it but still feels reasonably sturdy. This is to be expected though, given the price tag.
It can also sound a little white noisey at times depending on what you are going to do with it. It would be great if it didn't this problem but I'm sure it can be somewhat eq'd out if necessary. This can also be a good thing though if you are after something more lofi.

On the plus side I would have to say that it can be great fun and very easy to use. As a relative novice in the world of synths and delay / modulation effects, I was able to quickly and easily get it to sound great and produce some incredibly spacey sound effects. Just messing around with any of the knobs while a simple synth loop plays through it can immediately make it sound so much more interesting and professional (although maybe a little bit more on the lofi side of things given the slight static / white noise aspects of it)

Overall though, given the price, I would say that it is a great purchase and has tons of possibilities!
