Interesting albeit bit strange groovebox

dd_oak, 27.03.2018
I use the machine as three timbral module in my live electronics setup. Its not the typical use but it can work this way too (with the sequencer as added bonus).
Pros: small, lightweight, enough controllers, can do two timbres of chords or other polyphonic noises and 4 drum voices (samples). Good (preset) FX. With the supplied PC editor and cloud midi editor you can create your own sounds, assign controllers, change samples, backup.
Cons: the pc editing and backing up has some really awkward idiosyncracies (like by default you don't see the actual content but the default one and thus messing up is very easy). The storage system in the machine is confusing. When slaved to other sequencers and played with fingers it sometimes randomly records notes even with no recording enabled.
Sound: its the typical Novation VA sound, good for pads, crossmodulated blips and so on. Noise is much harsher sounding than on Blofeld for example. There is no way how to create LFO-panned sounds though which is a shame.
Overally, its suits my current needs and I no of other alternative that could fit the role (in my no computer setup). Od course Blofeld is multitimral but FX is worse and the voice switching is cumbersome, less knobs, no sequencer. Elektrons are bigger, expensive and weird in their own regard. Modulars are funnily expensive. So price - features - size wise its good value.

Nice value for the money

JimmyNassa, 27.01.2018
It is a nice groovebox, very intuitive and was a nice work flow!
Its optimal to get ideas or to work with other gear.
At beggining seems a bit confusing, but after a few hours gets really simple, you can load your own small samples into it.
The only cons are: you need to get used into it to know what every knob does and to find the best sinth modules for your.
