Perfect Synth, massive sound
Alie_O 25.01.2021
The Typhon Dreadbox is a small Analog Synth that comes with gigantic rough and diverse analog sounds to get lost in for hours. Overall the small but sturdy metal box has a simple layout and comfy yet touch-sensitive knobs, buttons and sliders that take you through any adjustments necessary without the need to spend too much time on reading the manual. The first look makes it feel like superb quality for a really amazing price and lots of fun with jamming.

It takes a bit of time to get used to the selection of the waveshapes for the two Oscillators but apart from that, the Typhon is quite more intuitive than expected. Even without using the very entertaining Manual, it is rather easy to find one?s way around the menu, sequencer, the different modulators and effects.

The programming of the sequencer takes a little while to get used to and some deep-menu-diving is necessary but it is still absolutely doable - and afterall the Typhon houses a 32-Step-Sequencer so that leaves a lot of room for inspiration. It might be useful to freshen up music theory knowledge as programming the different steps works by selecting the Notes of the Scale and mapping those to each desired step.

To dig really deep I will need more time but I am already sure that whatever con?s may arise - the enormous sound will most likely make up for it!

Not what I expected
Armalite 07.10.2021
I really looked forward to getting this but was kinda disappointed when I got it. I was expecting a warm an fuzzy sound but instead I got a harsh cold sound. Also, The unit could not stand flat on the table so that gave me a bad first impression. And also the faders to the left are not very responsive. Your have to turn them up and down a couple of times to get any change in the sound. I found like 5 good presets and the rest was just boring. I tried to make some sounds on my own but I don’t think it was intuitive. My Roland SE-02 sounds way better in my opinion. I would like to return the typhon.

Cheap alternative to expensive gear
1 BPM 26.07.2021
Afer one week of enjoying this little synth, I ordered a second one! I have been trying and returning/reselling various synths such as Iridium, Argon8M, Wavestate and finally I came across this el cheapo Typhon, in search for an ambient space soundscape drone thingie. O M G yes this tiny box surprised the bleep out of me. No matter what patch I selected, just fiddling with the Mods and Fxs gets me heavenly drones or ambient pads. The Fxs act like Mods, better than the Dreadbox NYX does. I tried expensive wavesynths but this Typhon beats them hands down. Yeahyeah no full fledged wavetable scan, but you can LFO through the wave forms ever so lovely. Very intuitive user interface BTW. The only negative minus ugly bad thing is the super tiny small screen that needs a magnifying glass or strong readers glasses to read those microscopic characters and symbols. So 1 star less for a couple of details. 5 Stars total because it is a huge fun synth all the way, and because I find it so good that I ordered a second one.

One of the best small synths out there
PaulAi 08.05.2021
A great synthesizer.
Small form factor. Great options in terms of internal sequencing.
Wide range of sounds and overall very flexible package.
Hard to beat this one in it's class.
If you are thinking of getting it just go for it you will not regret it.
