I tried several (modular) synths before. And the more I play around with Wusik 4000 the more I am convinced that this is one of the most advanced and flexible instruments that is available today. For me it appears that it turns out to be a little bit like Photoshop - even though I use it almost daily for almost 20 years, I still discover new possibilities and ways to solve my challenges every day. A kind of ultimate tool that fullfills my need for permanent creativity. :-) Today I would recommend Wusik 4000 not only to musicians and sound designers who know what they do, but also to those who intend to start learning sound design. Its modularity allows you to exactly build the kind of synth that you need to follow your sound design course, if you attend one. And you can build up your own dream synth gradually along the course. Of course it needs some days to get into it, and you cannot assess all of its power and flexibility by just clicking through some presets. It is rather like learning to walk: In the beginning you have to invest some patience to learn how to make some steps, but once you get it, you cannot get enough of it - and suddenly you can go wherever you want to go.
Besides that, you can also use one of the many very usable presets. If you are interested: On Youtube and Soundcloud (links below) you can also find some demonstations for some of the presets.
I use it in Reaper and Renoise on a Windows 8.1 PC without any technical issues or complications. I can even use it with my 25000 Galbanum Architecture wavetables that I initially bought for the Rapture synthesizer.
The only negative statement that I can make at the moment is: It can become very addictive.
The user interface design supports the workflow very well. It's fun to use it. I appreciate the fact that it focuses more on the workflow than on decorative aspects, unlike you can find it in many other producs. The technical support was extraordinary fast and friendly. For questions it seems to be the best place to use the forum here on KVR. The development listens carefully to the suggestions of their users and promises to enhance the product experience in further developments based on user suggestions.
So, in my opinion there is no single reason to hesitate and not to try it. Go, grab the demo, and then buy it! If you really intend to invest 100 $ into a synthesizer, I think Wusik 4000 offers the best value for your money, and even more. I give it 15 out of 10 stars :o)
