Suitability/Performance

Rather light, it is the stability and performance test

Plutôt léger, il est sur l'essai stable et performant

Overall Opinion 4/10

First the interface, more simplistic than simple. He has several types of synthetic (subtractive, VA and FM) but large gaps: we can not even define the envelope or the lfo ... 2 arpeggiators and effects are not sufficient to meet all.
As for the sound, it is more accurate than vintage, but dynamic, very far from Togu Audio Line, Poly 2106 Synthescience (free) or dsp discovery (and other synth will fm)
If it sounds a bit juno vintage, I have not been impressed.
Short for the price it is blah

D'abord son interface, plus simpliste que simple. Il cumule plusieurs types de synthé (soustractif, va et fm) mais des gros manques: on ne peut même pas définir l'enveloppe, ni le lfo, ... 2 arpégiateurs et des effets ne suffisent pas à relever le tout.
Quand aux sons, il est plus vintage que précis, sans dynamique, très très loin d'un Togu Audio Line, du Poly 2106 de Synthescience (free) ou d'un dsp discovery (autre synthé va et fm)
S'il sonne un peu juno vintage, je n'ai pas été séduit.
Bref pour le prix c'est bof
