This is a synth that truthfully makes textures and tones that no other synth will. It's a bit of a modular, and bit of a sequencer with a lush reverb built in. This is the kind of synth you can use to get new ideas when you're stuck.
Only down side is it is a bit complex and sometimes feels "random" when you make connections or change parameters just because it can be unorthodox. This synth is better at making ambient tones for existing tracks, or lead and bass lines on new tracks where the idea of the track is open to experimentation. It could be difficult to dial in a specific sound you have in mind for a track that's further down the production road.
