As I hinted in the introduction, this synth sound wonderful. It's filter is magnificent and with two oscillators there is not much to be wished for. Well, a noise generator and Hard-sync between the oscillators would make it a VERY complete synth. Because there are clearly some very high quality sound routines used in programming this synth, it does use a rather big amount of CPU power. There is a polyphony setting that let you limit the amount of voices to keep things in order though. Besides this, the CM-101 has some hidden tricks like reversible Envelope and LFO modulation on the Filter section and reversible modulation amounts on the Oscillators as well.

This thing Rocks!!! :) ok - very good VSTi - nice sounds - can be as lead or weird pads - if you like them analog sounds - go buy the mag - you can find the cm-101 on other issues than 36 still.Read Review
What can You say.. Its Free. If you need to Tweek a Thick Bass Souind then look no further. I didnt mind Buying the Magazine for the Prog. It's A Good Mag. The 202 Drum Machine is a PRetty Cool toy. I use Battery though.
Not a bad little synth. You cetainly can't complain considering it's a freebie. Well, you can complain, and I will, just one thing mainly that I don't like about it, no portamento. Other than that I like it. Certainly nothing all that special, but it's low on CPU and can make some decent sounds. The interface looks good and is clearly laid out. It's a simple synth and is simple to figure out all the functions. Pretty much what you see is what you get, no hidden or cryptic functions to mess with. Thanks CM and Muon.Read Review
