The general configuration is it simple?
Yes, for someone who has notions of synthèse.etant novice, I am far from having been around, but we must seriously consider it (but it is the interest eh?)
Editing sounds and effects is it easy?
A knob, a function (or almost)
The manual is clear and sufficient?
-Yes available in French.
The sounds they suit your style of music?
-With a little research, we discovered the potential of this little monster.
The effects are they effective and responsive?
What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
He excels at making line basses.Il collapses still in the frequencies most basses.Dommage.
-on the other hand, to special effects and sounds strange, it is redoutable.Il will delight fans of industrial and experimental.
How long have you use it?
Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Dominion X SED
Monophonic analog synthesizer desktop size.
I'm not going to dwell on some characteristic is already very well done on this page.
What he does know is that the tessitura of the span are the 5 octave keyboard C1 C6 nothing more annoying when no one knows.
The Ring modulator adjusts the VCO that uses mandatory on a square waveform with still PW or PWM.
It is possible to assign the velocity VCA, VCF, the resonance, the contour (influence of the envelope on the filter, LFO, the symmetry of the VCO can move with velocity eg triangle sine saw to triangle or square for pw).
It can also affect the speed of envelopes with different setting for each envelope.
Enough to make a living with velocity and expressive sounds.
You can choose to envelopes and LFO a Fast or Slow mode (ideal to choose fast or slow for percussion sweet for long.)
The LFOs have ONE SHOT mode (the waveform is played only once) perfect to replace an envelope.
You can put an effect insert, ie the sound goes to enter such a compressor and enters the machine sounds that we hear in the end is the sound through the effect.
It can handle an external sound through the filter very well, FM modulate the VCO 1 and 2 by an external source or to the syncro of VCO2 and 3 by an external source, on these two points I have not yet found sounds good that could do that well I tried with a Waldorf Q and some plug-in but it is not it can be with another analog that gives better.
I put 9 because the only thing that bothers me knows the key range of 5 octaves.
Very easy to use, it lights you play buttons you turn is created on the selected patch number that you want to store for example B05 weighed on store and voila.
How jobs can be read just to learn some specificity for envellope the LFO or glide trig mode or there is some trick by repeatedly pressing enter.
Otherwise everything is easy.
The ITS and very good it n 'may not be a MOOG but against what is an X DOMINION with grain are sometimes nice sometimes a little bad boys all depends on the mood of good big deep bass, sulfur lead, the percussion scorching the acute sharp FX distorted the liquid resonance well short we can do a lot.
Many interactions with VCO (ring modulator for each VCO, VCO 2 SYNC 3, FM 1 +2)
The VCO 2 or 3 can modulate the filter.
The LFO can go up the audio.
It can have a very 70's side as it can be very modern thanks to the FM.
I also pass the Waldorf Q through the filter result MMMMH GOOD.
Suitable for all Electro, Trance psychedelic or not, Rock, Pop, Jazz style.
Here is a very good analog synth with memory I had before Basstation first generation and a Jupiter-4 and frankly the Dominion X and the one I like best for her, it's versatility, its memories, its open side of the Outside, the small European luthier side to side of the big Japanese or American machine I like.
No synth is perfect even the most expensive, there is some good stuff that we always want more as on any bike.
But then for the price it is 10/10 many competitor should follow MFB as the price for the option.
Anyway I love this synth.
Desktop synth, monophonic - Analog. SED version not in my case.
4 banks of 32 sounds.
Three MIDI jacks, one jack input, 1 output jack and the adapter.
There are on top of checklists CV (3 for 3 VCOs - 1 Gate - 1 FM VCO - 1 Sync - 1 Mixer - 1 VCF - VCA 1)
3 + VCO modulation FM
1 Noise and Input Ext.
1 multimode filter (LP 24, LP 18, LP 12, LP 12, 12 Notch and 12 HP)
Side look, he's cute, with its wood blank. The frame is made of metal (thin but robust), the bottom plate is plastic.
The knobs are not too thin (far better than the Mopho Kb), and the spacing does not bother me too much. I can handle without problem, Cutoff and Resonance. But those who have big fingers may feel cramped.
The layout of the control panel is well done.
Two knobs on the left side of the screen allow access to certain parameters, such as MIDI or preset banks eg. (A sort of menu, somehow). You should know that each time we change a parameter or preset via this menu, you must press "Enter" to confirm the change.
The manual consists of two A4 sheets, in German (in my case, because purchased via a German site). Therefore, very little information.
The English version of the site MFB, and provided a little more with some drawings.
Anyway, as everything is available on the control panel, there is not much need the manual!
The sound editing is very simple. Everything you need is right next finger. No need to dig through menus (this is the advantage of pure analog).
Sound! Then there is the big sound, very powerful and with a very strong presence. In a mix, I think it will get noticed without problem ('ll have to contain, so it does not take up all the space in relation to other sounds).
Compared to my Mopho Kb, the sound is much broader and far, the Dominium-x. The Mopho has no power (especially in the bass. Here it is impressive).
CSOs are good, but do not have old analog on hand to compare (with VCO), I can not give advice.
Noise filter is the fine, and feedback, allows "dirty" the sound a bit, while giving it more presence.
Filters are really good. The difference between 24.18 and 12db LP, is quite subtle.
The 12db 24db BP and HP play their role. Notch is difficult to define. At the beginning of the opening, it looks like the HP, but it does not filter as above.
The ADSR is very good, and can work well on her. Again, no older analos, to compare with what was done before.
I've had two days!
I have not tried (hard to find in my area). I trust the people of the forum, and those of MFB. What I have read on the net, and demos listenable.
What I love is the sound! And then have instant control.
Least, for the moment, there is not.
Quality / price is a bargain, in view of the proposed arrangement and the sound is coming out.
Overall, I'm not disappointed with my choice. This is still a gem sound.
