    It's really a synth research completely modular and polyphonic Moreover, with excellent sound color. As summed Coyote14 is a machine very comprehensive ergonomic few words, a real success.

    UTILIZATION

    We can get out of basic sounds without special knowledge in the field of synthesis with some modules such as oscillators, filters and envelopes. on the other hand, knowledge synthesis are essential to exploit all the available modules with the correct routing to make the quintessence of this machine. The editor interface is very intuitive, we have a very clear visual of what we do. Assigning controllers is very easy, happiness!
    The manual is very well done for my taste, very clear, all modules are very well explained in detail, all with a few examples.

    SOUNDS

    Sound side, the bass is good, leads very active and expressive sounds FX are hell, pads excellent rendering is stunning electric pianos, in short there is nothing to get rid of this synth is ease in all registers, including the FM sounds.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year, I have tried a lot of keyboards and also has quite a bit in my set-up.
    I like the ergonomics, modular side that allows a lot of things very nice, sound editing software very successful.
    Cons: one additional DSP card is welcome!
    I would do this choice without a doubt. The price is quite high but it is worth it.

    You can connect a sustain pedal and a pedal control. The influence of the pedal on one or more parameters is very easy on the front panel in the same way as velocity, modulation wheels ...

    Sound engine ** **
    It is a modular synthesizer. It defines the architecture of the patch using modules which are classified by categories: inputs / outputs, oscillators, filters, envelopes, LFOs, mixers, effects, MIDI and more ...
    The polyphony is 32 voices and although it may be reduced depending on the complexity of the patches, I never felt a lack on this point.

    Edition ** **
    Editing is done primarily on your computer using a dedicated editing software very well. A demo version is available that produces sound even if you do not have the synth. It allows to realize opportunities and ergonomics.
    http://www.clavia.se/products/nordmodular/demo.htm

    UTILIZATION

    Given the range of possibilities of this machine, the ease of use is a very good level.
    It is obvious that to use a modular synthesizer, you must have a minimum of knowledge. But with simple bases synthesis, already synthesizer patches, complete and original.
    The manual is very educational and very complete. It includes examples and ideas to go further.

    SOUNDS

    Converters are excellent and the sound that comes out of this machine is just beautiful. The effects provided turnkey are simple but they sound good, and the modular architecture lets you create your own.
    The range of patches available on the net is huge and you can spend months or even years to revel other patches without even a single editor ;-)

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is the central and essential in my home studio. Its versatility combined with its compactness and reliability are also one I choose to move around.

    I had several synthesizers (Jupiter, poly800, SH101, Polysix, Opera6 Six tracks ...) I also FS1R I tried many VSTi, I have a Clavinet, a pianet, j 'I played on Rhodes and Hammond, and over the years I made my selection. This synth is the best for me. If it was to remain one, this is it.

    - Polyphony expansion card included as standard

    Just a point less for the impossibility to use more than 4 patches simultanment, but we forgive him, since you can do almost an entire song with only one patch.

    UTILIZATION

    So the slap is the ... Ergonomics is simply excellent!
    A priori, the power of the machine could leave prsager complexity of use of a terrible, but it is not.
    Dj for programming the patches with the editor, it was all directly at hand (and under the eyes), while the mouse is done visually. No more endless return-alles in menus, submenus and sub-menus ... One program while at home, by assigning custom settings of their choice to other switches and knobs (which is feasible with a simple drag-OPDs), and is ready to go live without PC, with just his keyboard under his arm. Clavia thank you!

    Has any pens for use in live and more intuitive. For those who are only eight knobs is not much, that they can prcisons CONTRL up paramtres 120 (15 slots x 8 knobs), which CSTA is simple via BCAN buttons. So knowing that we only have two hands ...
    In addition, it is possible to assign a single number paramtres Controller (what Clavia called morph groups).

    Oh yeah: each patch has eight variations instantanment accessible via switches DDIS. Basically, a patch is a synth and a variation of this is a paramtrage synth. We can therefore have trs DIFFERENT stamps on a single patch.

    The manual is clear trs (who reads English) and provides examples of using the modules in the patches.

    SOUNDS

    L too, it's all good.
    The DIFFERENT oscillator types available allow to obtain a wide range of sounds trs.
    We are entitled to conventional waveforms (sine, pulse, triangle, etc..), The synthetic drums, modlisation the ropes, and even the exact reproduction of a DX7.
    The filters are not bad at all, as with the variation on HP, BP, LP, Notch, 6 36 dB / Oct, comb filter, formant filter and a vocoder formidable.
    And then it all sounds, nothing wrong. It was real deep bass, shimmering layers of ...

    The effect is not part of the supplied, but offers enough to make dj: reverb, chorus, flanger, bit reducer, compressor, pitch shifter, phase shifter and a range of delays.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use the G2X for about 3 months.
    I fell in love by chance by trying the demo version.
    It's the perfect combination of power and ergonomics, and I do it again the same choice without doubt.
    The programming possibilities are truly standards, and when I see the price of some VA, frankly, there is no photo.
    As for the price, I find it reasonable, given the capabilities of this synth.

    I had a doubt when the ability to assign controllers to paramtres, Moitiers doubts confirmed. so we can assign a module paramtres the controller, and change the names of the modules in question, which names will also change automatically to the notches of the liquid crystal synths. Well, except that the number of characters displayed on these notches is quite limited. So we still have to abrger module names, as with dnomination Clean / P, understand dosage Dry / Wet effect Phaser ... not always practical.

    SOUNDS

    Excellent sound! o the silent hard CRER deep groundwater with the NM first, the NMG2 so easily lends itself. Same for the bass from the NM1er more chattering, percussive and firmer. Not talking about sounds worthy of the best soundtracks to SF ... organs? You want to play the yy? no problem, there is need ... jazz set with FM sounds? no problem, you can sell your DX7 without any remorts ... Not to mention the possibility of physical modlisation ... a bte!!

    Computing power can allow all prs DLIR that may have imagined. Moreover him, there is the possibility to interconnect the patches together by four audio bus, I let you see the possibilities ...

    Listen to the original patch, it is immediately captivated by the music of bte. It is personal but I take the prciser: all original patch, the first test store, I was invaded! all gave me pleasure and inspired and immediately! my fingers were moving alone, I did not need to order ... trs few times love me o has happened. The very first time would be when I jou for the first time on a grand piano, which most have a Bosendorfer prpar superbly ... In short, the happiness that play on this synth!

    Only the sounds of percussion had very promptly, as the MV first. My time, they are not bad, they are good, but do not touch me ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 9 months. What to say. A marvel, an absolute Russianness, no big dceptions, but two years of debt ...

    I will not dwell on features, but just point out that the G2 is not a synthesizer driven by a virtual keyboard, but an autonomous modular synthesizer controllable by a publisher on computer. (The confusion is common, this n is not a luxury plug-in)

    UTILIZATION

    as long as you have some knowledge of synthesis everything is clear. The editor is very readable, only the knobs to control the mouse is a problem of accuracy, quickly erased by a very simple assignment of these parameters to the facade of the G2X, which lacks neither knobs, switches or displays.

Only changes in the architecture of the patch inevitably require the use of the editor, everything else is accessible from the keyboard.
    Regarding the game itself, I do not know how to do better now. Knobs galore, 3 knobs, pitch, expression pedal, aftertouch, velocity, 4 audio in, all assignable to any parameter or group of parameters. It is an extra pair of hands is needed. We do not know a sound without having passed through a grinder G2 ... it's amazing, every time.
    Without being really a pianist, I think we'll have been expected of a keyboard clavia a little more serious (the plastoc, light and loud, the G2X, anyway) when we know the Bizarre qualitée of what is to interior of the gas plant.

    SOUNDS

    Although beautifully emulates the organ, the imitation of instruments is not his vocation. What he imitates well, however, it is the other synths. all other synths or almost. I did 2 or 3 tests with Korg, Roland, a sequential. It's quite impressive. But given the opportunity, it would be simplistic. Here is the ongoing escalation. Farewell fantasia, up to reality, everything is there and if not there are ways to get around. While at work! daily surprises.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Already 6 years of heavy use, I still do not do the trick. Not a problem, it's solid. Nothing is missing except may be a SPDIF digital output and a keyboard a bit more consistent for a 5 octaves. Note that the OS is updated fairly often, sometimes embellished with additional functions. Despite the end of production of the G2, Clavia seems to continue to work on the machine, so why not a day passes new extensions? without going so far, the vast user community involvement makes this synth very scalable.

    Mine is a G2 with the extension that doubles the computing power and I for 1 month. To highlight the features, go to the website of the keyboard.

    Use 10/10
    We'll have to lean on a little for Russia to do what you want with it (especially without notions of synthesis), but almost everything is easy to see (but there need the doc even when c ' North is not a lead). After having seized the operation masters and some modules (I never used to share squenceurs Cubase until now for example) can do virtually anything you want and even what we had not imagined. Obviously it's easier to edit computer (and especially we are all functions CASC), but there are plenty of opportunities to live edition on the keyboard, and 5 notches are very s useful for a.

    Sounds 10/10
    It Yadji a comment that said bit prs the same thing, but I RPTE. I had a Nord Lead 2, NL3, a Virus B and C virus, and frankly the Modular G2 beats them all. Not because these sounds are "better" but because you can get the sounds of the 4 synths prcdemment deficits (well almost, the virus has a grain, a heaviness that just get the Clavia) with NMG2 and many others. There may be slender or FM sounds like NL3, the typical sound of virtual analog of NL2, sounds "fat" and deep bass (almost) like a virus, the moog sounds, etc. ...

    There are plenty of sounds download on the internet, but you can of course make your own. The programming is not usually my thing, but I admit I take the game and I spend evenings entires just for fun.

    Specific on good: Most of the "sounds" (I should say program) has 8 variations. A variant is not a simple evolution of the first sound. In fact, we must understand that every program is a chain of its own DIFFERENT modules (envelopes, oscillators, effects, filters, etc. ....) and by delegates from (the string) a synth part Entire. For example, a program named "Moogy" 8 variations will be some of the moog bass, moog the groundwater, sounds .... In fact you have multiple patch Moog both on the same program! And in performance mode, you can obviously earn up to 4 members in program time (layer or split).

    Global Notice 10/10
    I use it for 1 month and think that this story will last long. More as it is small, does not hesitate I carry on my holiday.

    - What is the specific feature you like best, the least?
    Sometimes a little lack of polyphony in Performance mode (multiple sounds at the same time)

    - How do you report qualitprix?
    it's true that it's expensive, but now I know what synth I would say that the Nord Lead 3 silent dear seen everything you can do with the G2 for almost the same price.

    - With the exprience, you do again this election? ...
    YES! ! ! The only thing I'd change, what would a Nord Modular can import samples (wav), thus a kind of Modular Nord Wave.


    SOUNDS

    G2 and G2X is the same story

    I am not 10 as some modules may be amlior (today). I think to much reverb on this point.

    I also specific on those sounds for the most have the advantage of many highlights in a mix. I mean that the overall sound of the G2 (also lead and North) are very "sculpts" a does not bavouille frquences everywhere. A cluck of a, I have a VIRUS SNOW (I also had the B and C) that sounds heavy, fatty, sending death alone, but which tend to drown in a mix ( or crush if I push the volume to be heard). In any case this is my feeling, that does not love my m'empche Virus snow so far (but less than the same when g2!).

    OVERALL OPINION

    The X provides keyboard 5 octave either. But as a bonus, he is semi-ballast and therefore more enjoyable to play (especially since I drive with him the sounds of my North and wave my Nord Stage EX). So there is more room for the split areas. However, Clavia did not add points supplmentaires splits (well, those withthe LED front of the keyboard, since it is always possible to easily program up to 4 separate areas, but without the LED materializes ), this criticism is shared with the North Stage 88 compares the version "Compact".

    The XLR mic input is up front, and therefore more accessible (and not need a gooseneck extension)

    The 3 wheels Wheel (2 more than the G2) have a green LED that allows to realize aisment beginners to a piece she would not surrender its initial value t and So fast errors. Before using it, I imagined that their aesthetic intrt!

    Finally, ss air con, but the surface of sheet metal blank is much more useful to put antisches more (or a Virus Snow!).

    Inconvnient: + It takes place on my bed!

    And I can confirm that with the exprience ... I redid the "same" choice!

    These 2 synths (G2 / G2X) are unique in the market and I feel really privileges can use. And then the X will become a collector surment seen its rarity. 1900 euro bought when he disappeared from the market there are more than 2 years, I think it will not drop unless NORTHERN so a G3 but it does not appear on the agenda, unfortunately.

    For me (for synthse and unique tool box by delegates from that) is one of the best synths for at least 20 years (and again I say "one" the best to not offend anyone ). It was for that I put 10 despite its imperfections.
