Value For Money : Excellent
* What type of keyboard (synth, piano ...)? How many octaves?

No keyboards, it is a desktop synth

* How many sounds, effects? What styles? Are they edited?

It is similar so we just edit any ad infinitum. Large numbers of presets not very flattering compared to what can be done to this machine spit leaning over.

* What connection (Audio, MIDI, pedals ...)

Audio In (Jack) Audio Out L - R (Jack x2), MIDI In, MIDI Out

* What polyphony?

Monophonic

UTILIZATION

* The general configuration is it simple?

It must go through a software that communicates with the MIDI synth to really get into it. Normal for this price.

* Editing sounds and effects is it easy?

With the software yes. Without not.

* The manual is clear and sufficient?

Yes

SOUNDS

* The sounds they suit your style of music?

Yes, electronica, deep house, nu disco, trip hop, hip hop, techno

* Effects are they effective and responsive?

No effects, just a 4-pole filter very very cool

* Are they realistic?

This is analog, they are more realistic than they are real (and very hot and beautiful when you know how to use)!

* The expression is good? (Reaction velocity, aftertouch)?

Yes, I was even impressed.

OVERALL OPINION

* How long have you use it?

3 months

* Did you try many other models before buying it?

In stock, yes. In particular, I hesitated with the Doepfer dark energy of the NANOZWERG of mfb and MiniBrute from Arturia.

* What is the particular feature you like best and least?

+ The full bass. Warm leads. Very beautiful tablecloths. Sub Osc 2's!

- The software but this one allows for such an object for so little money

* How would you rate the quality / price?

Excellent

* With experience, you do again this choice?

Yes
