This is a character synth! Analog synthesis: Very good sound, excellent filters. Lot's of character in all ranges from lo bass to brilliance. Spectrum synthesis: Something very cool and extremely good sounding. Fresh and versatile which adds to everything else I own. Unique sounds that no other synth I own can do this way. Wave synthesis: Interesting but a little unpredictable. But that is beautiful in some way. Sounds good, too. Lot's of really tasty programmed sounds come with D'Cota. I tend to call it the little brother of Virsyn TERA as it's created by Virsyn. If you don't own TERA and want to get the fantastic Spectrum osc sounds this could be the synth for you. D'Cota is smaller in interface and features but has enough features to be the one-and-only synth if you want to. It's no problem to play whole arrangements with this synth without the obvious need to use something else. In general I would describe this synths sound as phat and warm. Soundwise this synth is on a top level like few other synths. Stable.
