"As for the hardware part, got a couple Pioneer SDJ-08 monitors, Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro Headphones, AKG Perception 220 condenser microphone, Roland R-05 Wave/MP3 Recorder, M-Audio Keystation 88es, KORG Monotron and Monotron Delay, M-Audio Fast Track Ultra, and a custom made chiliGREEN laptop which pretty much works as a desktop replacement. It's a monster!"more
One of the most unruly of synths that there is. It’s a right bitch to tame and it doesn’t alway play nice, but when you work out how to use it and you catch it on a good day it will blow you away with what it’s capable of.
Based on part of the MS-20 it is truly analogue apart from the 4 part drum sequencer on board.
I wish they carried the build, size and design over to the Volcas. It is very robust and has great action on the pots and switches.
It will mostly be a noisy mofo, but you will love it all the same.
For the price, it really can't be beat. The drums sound decent and the extremely simple synth section can produce very usable basses, melodies and percussive tones (the envelopes are actually quite quick). There are tons of easy to install mods for it as well, adding MIDI, VCO modifications, etc.
