Great sounding multi-timbral synth
Cinetracks, 21.10.2020
My thoughts after 30 days :

Pros :

- The sound is great. Patches all sound crystal clear (great for layering), not thin, but you can dirty them up or give them some more bottom end ('Gnasher' algorithm!). There's an 'organic' and vintage quality to the sound when you detune oscillators, add PWM or LFO.

- This is not a classic wavetable synth, so no replacement for the Virus, Blofeld or Quantum. It's just a good sounding multitimbral and true stereo VA with static, digital waveforms added.

- The filters sound juicy. Compared with the Quantum, they sound more focused. The Virus sounds harder but a bit more snappy.

- The Dual Mode sounds really big and is great for pads or sounds that have to stand out from the rest.

Cons :

- The editing is not so good. There is a Shift button which doubles the functions of some knobs, but it is latched, so you have to remember to disengage it or you're editing something else.

- You have to push + or - buttons to select the digital waveforms. It would be great if this could be assigned to a knob
