Rip roaringly good
I have never heard the hardware version of this product, but I'm sure this must come somewhere near and for a fraction of the cost.
What's more, you can use several of the units without paying any more.
I'm using it, obviously, with the Softube modular and, at the moment, it's the only optional module that I've bought. However, this single unit has opened up the sound palette of the collection immensely because it is capable of something that would be impossible to achieve with any of the other modules.
So, what does it sound like? When used without modulation, It's great for digital fm type sounds and sometimes reminds me of some sort of bit crusher. Distortion is rarely soft, but you can always pass it through a further filter to soften it down a bit. And if you want to add a real edge, it's great. You can squeeze a great variety of tones out of it (within the limits of that type of modern, aggressive sound) and especially when you start modulating between those tones using either an Envelope, LFO or indeed audio oscillator output it really starts to rip and roar!
The uFold II suffers from some of the usability limits of the Softube core system - the way things are added, connected and re-connected can be a little clunky (I wish Softube would introduce some key commands into the software) - but also scores over all the Doepfer modules as it has switchable functions, which saves some unnecessary plugging in and out.
Anyway, still early days for me and this system really - I'm sure I'm going to have fun creating all sorts of mayhem with this...
