It's the best Analog Mono out there

Teomi, 05.09.2017
I waited a couple of months to write this review so it will be serious. I've owned quite a few analog synths from Moog, Oberheim, Roland etc...
The Dominion 1 is both classy and daring with its features, implementation, and sheer sound quality.

Let me break it down.

1. Build quality = it's a tank. No less.

2. Ease of use = Super easy. One knob per feature. It compensates for the poorly written manual.

3. Features = There is simply nothing out there that gives you so much in terms of sonic shaping at this price range and even twice as much. Just read teh specs for full detail but there is so much under the hood that it's basically perfect!

4. Sound = very analog. Full of character. Very broad spectrum. It doesn't have to be aggressive. It can be quite smooth and buttery. There is just SO MUCH sweet spot and therefore it's capable of a wide range of sounds that cover every aspect of monophonic playing.

Paraphonic mode is inspiring because it allows for unique interactions between the Oscillators. I wish there were a few more tweakable options for Paraphonic mode to make it a bit more consistent when playing chords/Pads but I couldn't really ask for more.

great sound and features - better English documentation needed

northerntao, 08.09.2017
The good - this paraphonic monosynth sounds amazing, and has a ton of options for modulation. A great sounding, multi-mode filter (HP, LP, BP, Notch) and capable arpeggiator and sequencer. Solidly built. Solid keybed and ruggedly built.

The bad - the documentation, at least the English version, is incomplete. The interface is a little obtuse and confusing, but patience is rewarded. I don't really use the patch bay, but more info on the voltages is really needed. I tried briefly to get it to track via CV and gate from a Cirklon, but just went back to MIDI, which is fine for my purposes. More MIDI CC control would be great - maybe they could backport some of the features on the new Dominion Club. Tuning stability is an issue, but is to be expected with VCOs. English documentation on the tuning process is AWFUL, but there is community support that helps - look on Facebook.

Still a great synth, and I don't regret buying it. Even with the bad, I still give it 4 out of 5 stars, because it sounds frickin' amazing and there are so many options to tweak your sound.
