Diverse budget sound module
Iskariot, 05.12.2020
Extremely happy with what i got for the price point. A very versatile sound source. Yet this doesn't come without compromise:
Given the price range the build is cheap plastic, the knobs feel horrible and the led feedback is anything but accurate, hence the 2 star handling and 3 star quality. Luckily all this can be bypassed by using it in conjunction with the ModalApp.
The windows version is lackluster, often stops giving feedback of button manipulation on the module itself, but works fine on android. Although i still consider the need for an app connection a negative factor on the handling score. (I prefer to perform my hobby without the need for screens). It's also slightly annoying that you can't hook it up to the app but use a different power source, in some cases this caused a hum in my signal loop. (A usb splitter like arturia provides with the BSP would solve this).

These points of critique don't hold up at all at this price point for me given the insane amount of features and sounds you get. So 5 starts overall.

Tiny, portable synth which sounds huge!
Jim Jones, 15.09.2020
Let me start by saying that Modal did a good job with this digital, portable mono synth.
It's well labeled and quite easy to understand. It's hands-on and with some "spread" you won't notice that it's actually just one voice.
For those who want to take it a step further or go "deeper" or just prefer a computer or touchscreen device, Modal got you covered with an editor/app.
For this price you can't go wrong. However I'd recommend the use of an external sequencer and/or controller with it. Great as sound module, esp. with some effects like delay or reverb added.

I do recommend it!

Es steckt viel drin
SyNtHeTh, 24.06.2020
Ich habe ihn mir geholt weil ich ein paar Sounds kreieren/einspielen will, um diese dann in meinen Sachen zum Einsatz zu bringen (also keine Live-Geschichten).

Ich möchte vorab erwähnen das ich kein tiefgründiges Wissen im Bereich der Synthesizer habe, aber dennoch meine Meinung dazu äußern möchte :-)


Seine Größe würde ich als "kompakt" beschreiben und handlich genug, um ihn überall mit hinnehmen zu können. Die Stromspeisung funktioniert hier über drei Batterien R6 oder via USB.

Vorgänger berichten von "Folien-Tastern"....entweder habe ich eine neuere Variante oder ich erkenne diese nicht als solche an, denn ich behaupte das ich bei meinem vorliegenden Gerät "Touch-Taster" habe....sprich ich muss sie nur berühren (ähnlich einem Smartphone-Dsiplay).

Die Drehschalter besitzen keinen Anschlag, bedeutet sie lassen sich endlos drehen. Die Stellung dieser lässt sich dann nur "grob" ermitteln, indem man die LED?s betrachtet, welche über den Tasten liegen auf welchen man die Töne spielt.
Ich empfehle da tatsächlich die Nutzung der App oder VST vom Hersteller (kostenlos) um dann ganz genaue Werte ablesen zu können.

Für mich persönlich ist die Steuerung ausschließlich über die Bedienelemente des Synth?s selber, zu unübersichtlich und zeitfressend. Ich steuere ihn immer via VST-Plugin an und das funktioniert super....aber dazu komme ich nochmal!

Was ich nicht toll finde ist die Lautstärke am Synth selber, denn diese springt von 0-Stellung gleich auf vllt. 10 oder so. Bei manchen Tönen ist mir dies persönlich mit Kopfhörern doch manchmal gleich zu laut...ist aber nicht bei allen so.

Ein Merkmal ist, das er normale MIDI-Anschlüsse besitzt, neben einem Micro-USB, Line-Out und Klinke. Er hat noch einen kleinen Schalter an der Seite um ihn einzuschalten, wobei die Stellungen "USB, OFF, Battery" sind. Alle Regler etc. befinden sich dann auf der Oberseite und sind mühelos bedienbar.

Soundtechnisch:
Klingt er sehr gut und bekommt tatsächlich ordentliche Tiefen hin.
Es ist auch wirklich sehr erstaunlich welch Einstellmöglichkeiten der "Kleine" so bietet...es lassen sich so viele Sachen einstellen, modulieren etc. .....Hammer.

Nochmal zu den MIDI-Anschlüssen:
Ich habe folgendes Problem (und das lasste ich dem Gerät neutral an, da ich nicht genau weiß ob es ein Problem des Gerätes ist):
Ich arbeite mit FL-Studio und betreibe ihn via USB (Stromquelle) und MIDI, sowie logischerweise via Klinke zum Tonabnehmen.
Ich kann ihn irgendwie nur ansteuern wenn beides angeschlossen ist...USB und MIDI. Aber dadurch entsteht ein dauerhaftes Störgeräusch, was schon sehr nervig ist. Ob es eine Aufnahme stört habe ich noch nicht probiert.
Nur via MIDI-Anschluß bekommt das VST Plugin keine Verbindung.....nunja.

Alles in allem:
Der Synth in Kombiniation mit der App oder dem VST Plugin bieten absoluten Mehrwert und erleichtert das arbeiten mit dem Gerät ungemein, da wirklich alles einsehbar und wunderbar übersichtlich gestaltet ist! Wirklich saubere Arbeit!

Die sehr sehr vielen EInstellmöglichkeiten muss man in der Preisklasse erstmal noch woanders finden und somit gibt es eine Kaufempfehlung von mir.

Um synth forte que merece controlladore particular
aaronpeacock, 09.07.2020
O som e bom e forte, tal como os melhores de Waldorf, Virus, etc.
Compreendo o motivo (espaço limitado) ter um montante dos knobs limitados, e por isso e preciso cada um funcionar com 3 niveis de menu. Idealmente resolves isso pelo controlladore particular, e tens os MIDIs entrada e saida. Alimente-se via USB, que e comodo. E uma pena ter so jacks de 3.5mm para a saida, mas que fixe ter sync I.O. Combinado com o teclado multi-uso, e um bom instrumento propriamente para performança, e so para dizer do que era melhor ter acceso a algumas funções no mesmo tempo, mas e façil utilizar o SHIFT -+ ligar o arp, etc.
