Amazing synthesizer!

KindEdward, 10.01.2018
I was a bit skeptical in regards torwards buying this synth, however I must admit I was surprised by it's amazing potential. What this synth will give you that other won't is simple:
- Great controls
- Good quality sound
- The 2 speakers are a welcoming addition
- You can create anything because of the freedom of the controls

Considering that there are no presets with this synth (Which can be both a good or a bad thing) I was hoping to be able to store my own presets, which you can, but you need an Apple based product to do so, and since I own a Samsung, I can not store any of my previously made sound combinations, so at time it might be hard for you to remember how exactly you made a specific sound.
However, this synthesizer is not meant for such performances, this synth is intended for you to have maximum creative options and be able to manipulate the sound in any shape or form for your pleasing.
Overall, I highly recomend this synth, considering the price and the quality that you are getting for what you have paid for.

Sound top, but many defects

Acoustic Pollution, 16.06.2018
If you listen to the oscillator, the Reface CS is already very impressive, even the filter knows to convince, the resonance behavior is not so mine, but that's a matter of taste. That here "only" a dsp chip his work done you notice at any time. The CS sounds the same way if he wants, that's very impressive and other manufacturers like Roland can cut off a decent record. Even the mini-keyboard can convince in the processing and feels consistently high quality.

But now to the negative points, after all, I have to come to the 3 stars.
The boxes are mentioned here once, they are not worth it, but I do not assume that anyone expects anything else.
Saving properly can not be synonymous with the synth, an app can help, ok so I could still live.
But the Midi implementation is more than poor. The Looper can not sync to external devices and is therefore actually useless. Delay and LFO can not sync synonymous, which would still be hhandelbar in itself is not made by the much too small faders.
So the LFO has approximately a spectrum from 1Hz to 200Hz on a 30mm fader. No chance because what reasonable to ask. Same problem with the effects especially at the delay.

If that were not bad enough, the actual KO criterion is the envelope. An envelope for filter and amp is already a cramp and leaves really little room for maneuver. Especially since the blender also determines the modulation depth between the two targets at the same time. And yet, the filter does not open properly even if the envelope is just to take care of the filter. Anyone who has come up with the crap belongs stoned.

With external Midicontrollern can be picked off separately since the update and allows a slightly deeper sound design, but this is very complicated and should not be a condition to get a good synth.

An extend version with larger faders and 2 envelopes, I would immediately put it for the sound is very convincing. But that is more toy than instrument and therefore goes back again.
