sounds really harsh and digital which is exactly what i`m looking for.

i wish it had portomento and it cuts off annoyingly if you accidentally hit 2 buttons at once, which is a bit awkward if you`re playing live
but as a freaky noise maker, it excels

i like the gui, it really suits the sound it makes
it has a character of sound i havent heard on any other vsti expensive or cheap

top synth i use it all the timeRead Review

A nice tool if you're in industrial music.
Really like it for its "cold digital noizy sound". Don't speak about fatness or reliability here, this synth is a digital SFX machine.

-GUI: well, it totally sucks in my opinion. shame - I'd have prefered
something bigger, with precise knobs and a nice "real hardware rack
look". It's easy to use anyway and every controls is just behind your
-Sound: Great! (for me at least) - cold & digital
Documentation: just the minimum but it's ok.
-Presets: none
-Customer support: good.
-Value: very good.
-Stability: excellent

sound like Shit!!!

... but that is the point

don't expect it to follow pitch.

its a weird noise machine!

play a note...
play the upper octave
and there ya go!something totally different the the other note...but that is the point .

for the price its pretty good i guess this thing is more like: patch a weird sound and then export it a sound file and then import it to a sampler and then play it pitched

kinda unique next to sicksynth(toby) but its PC AND MAC as well... which is good for me..:)Read Review
