Inspiring new ideas and sounds
Steven6720, 15.06.2020
The Polyend & Dreadbox Medusa is intended to offer some originality in its approach to synthesis and sequencer. So, if you are considering buying this product then I guess, like me, you are looking for something a little different.

Medusa succeeds on that front. I like the mix of analogue and digital oscillators, allowing multi-layered timbres. The way these are mapped in monophonic, poly 1 and poly 2 modes also enforces the medusa's own character on to the sounds you make and how you play them. Couple this with the really flexible envelopes and LFOs and the synth is a powerful engine for sound design. The sequencer then extends the alternative approach with step and real-time recording via the 64 pads and functionality. The pads feel great in my opinion and can have modulation parameters mapped to X, Y position on the pad and pressure (z), so playing the synth live is very expressive. Again this promotes a different way of playing the synth compared to using a midi keyboard. At the moment you can record any changes to the synth engine as part of the sequence, however the performance modulations caused by pad pressure etc. do not appear to be captured. That would be a nice addition in my opinion. There is a useful random button to randomise patch sound for individual sequence steps and complete sequences. Good for randomising performances and creating new ideas.

The housing feels sturdy and the workflow is pretty intuitive after a few minutes of experimentation. Personally, it would be nice to have some built-in effects coupled with stereo output to complete the compact setup for live performance, but hey, you can't have everything!

Best bang for the buck hybrid analog machine. It sounds thick and the digital oscillators add so much to the timbre of the analog ones. It can sound as a Dreadbox analog machine if hou want it or like a wavetable synth and anything in between. The Grid is a super feature by itself. You can parameter lock or store chords on each pad and generate so many ideas. There is a ton of modulation sources also. Build quality is top notch also. There are some minor quirks like the LFOs that either run unsynced and freely or synced and retriggered ie you cannot have an LFO run in sync and not retrigger with every note, but that's something that probably will be fixed in a later firmware update. All in all this is my favourite synth at the momment and the best synth purchase I've made in a long time.
