Summary: This is one of the best sounding synths around. Even without
effects, it sounds great. And, its CPU load is less than most. It is a
bit lite on options, but that is easily overlooked.

Interface:
The interface is cleanly designed; however, it takes a while to get used
to the rocker switches. It is not obvious at first which position is 'on'
and which is 'off'. Small nit, though.

Sound:
This is what it is all about. I cannot say that ive heard a synth that
can better Asynths raw sound. (And since there are no onboard effects,
that is all you get).

Features:
Here, the synth falls a bit short of its potential. This year, what
moves me is sound quality and 'elegant simplicity'. Features, in
and of themselves, are beginning to annoy -- especially when it gets
to multiple redundant copies of modules and the like. But simplicity
does have its limits. Asynth only has the one LFO as a modulation
source. In this case, I wish for more: any of ring modulation,
hard sync, FM, pitch would be nice additions.


Documentation:
The included docs are fine. Really, there is not much to document.

Presets:
The included presets are excellent. Especially, the first 32 or so.
In spite of the lean control set, there is a surprizing variety to
the sound pallet.

Support:
Antti provides a contact email; but to be honest, Ive had no need to
use it.

Value:
Excellent. It is donationware; so we determine this ourselves through our donation choice.

Stability:
Rock solid on my hosts/CPUs
