Great sound, hate keys
Imdamdamm, 21.12.2017
This synth offers a good quality sound for pads, leads, bass, and even percussive sounds if you adjust the parameters in a particular manner.
One downside of this synth are the keys, as they are not velocity sensitive and the touch is very rigid which requires one to get used to especially when playing live solos with it, as they do not come as weighted keys.
On the whole it's a good entry level synth which offers some rather interesting and experimental features especially when using the arpeggio function within it.

You can really some fat tones with this Frequency Modulator. If you are interested in making bass lines that stand out I think this is your instrument.
The only negative thing about the System-1, it is hard to map it to a DAW, or at least for me it was hard :P
