This is one very cool synth. It has a very unique approach and lots of tweakability. I used to have a korg wavestation and this synth reminds me of it quite abit but its definately more powerfull.
The included waveforms are fairly extensive and creating patches is quite easy, the included patches/combi's are quiet nice and definately useable. The real fun for me has been in making my own.
The basic sound generation source is the "phraze". A phraze can be made up from only one waveform or many and you have tons of control over how the phrase sounds from very rythmic to standard subtractive like sounds.
You also have "mucho" control over how each part of the phraze sounds by means of many controllable parameters like gate time, cutoff, etc etc etc etc etc.
There is just so much fun that can be had with this synth that frankly Im not touching on in this review ... The main thing I can say is that if your considering it, download the demo ... I think you will like.
I think this synth was definately worth the purchase.
I do have a few critisms. The master effect FX mix parameter has a tendancy to lower the volume as you turn it up, this should just NOT be. Also the Xfading bewteen patches in combi also messes with the volume of the combi and therefore would be more tedious to automate.
The manual is pretty good, it only leaves ya guessing in a few areas
