Yep. Sounds pretty great and the price is unbeatable. Shame it doesn't seem to have tempo syncable LFOs.

It sounds very good ! MFB is quite an underdog when it comes to synths : great instruments, but there is few talk about them.

Dominion 1 was a massive hit for MFB, so much so you could never buy one, always out of stock!

No Portamento or Syncd LFOs.
Rather have these than crappy FX I’ll never use. :wink:

I'm pretty sure portamento is there, could be somewhere in the menu.
