Spectral Audio Neptune IIPublished on 12/14/08 at 13:46
(Originally written by Somuch/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Fuzz distortion and typical analog sound.

UTILIZATION

The editing is very simple.

SOUNDS

Overrated analog rack (IMHO) because the Neptune can't hold a comparison with a Waldorf Pulse or even a simple Roland SH101 which has a real resonant filter...

OVERALL OPINION

I tested it a few hours at a friend's and it didn't convince me.

If you're looking for real analog sound, buy a Moog or a Dave Smith Instrument or even better find an old SH101, Moog Prodigy or Sequencial Pro One and you'll have a really big sound...…

Sonoritée good, but not too intuitive!

then it is a monophonic analog synthesizer, side connections: Audio in / out, Voltage Control CV / Gate (out / in) and a MIDI Thru / in, sounds one can make a good fiddled ...
Some controllers can be controlled via an external sequencer

UTILIZATION

Using simple but not intuitive for someone who never has touched such objects, and the manual is available in English ...
As said below a button = one function

SOUNDS

Good but to use live its still pretty rough and limited, I use that for the resampling to the Reeces, the bass sound by sleeping more and some other form of waves ...
you turn a knob the sound changes, so it is rather a lot ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it mostly...…

OVERALL OPINION

I use it mostly for less than 2 years to waveforms that I resample behind, did not try other analog synths I can not compare, but I imagine it was much better, however, j 'like grain, has this little rack has its sizzling grinds his wish, I would do not purchase this item because I think that a virus or a waldorf is better and is more accesible to the novice of analog synthesis

The Neptune is a monophonic synth midi analog PUR.
About 70 buttons with a button as a philosophy = 1 function.
OSC 3, ring modulation, filter HP and LP, 2 analog distortion.
The filters are made with transistors, so it is pure analog sound.
Envelope Filter and Amplitude.
Coupled with an LFO OSC 3. Glide ...
Anything that takes to techno sounds.
I put 8 as compared to SE1-X there is no memory.

UTILIZATION

1 button = 1 function. What can we do better?

SOUNDS

Those who think qu'aujourdh'hui a synth like the Virus has 70 effects with simulatanés spend their way!

The Neptune in a unique sound. And no synth comes close. The grain is bold, gritty, twisted, it's overwritten the baffles.
No synth does the same model.
Good to the contrary, you will not make the Neptune what a synth today!
For the pure analog technology, it's a great synth. He is ready to be what a minimoog or SE1-X, has a fraction of the price.

Added 05/2006: I now have a minimoog and SE1-X and Netptune not happen to them at the ankle.
You have to be honest. It is a synthetic quality, with its very German / Swedish (acute and slightly shrill). He can not make nice with low round against it excels in saturated and violent sounds!

OVERALL OPINION

It's a synth with a unique sound unusual, so was reserved for those who already have a good setup and try something original.
In addition to an existing synths or plugins Neptune adds butter on the bread.
As guitarists still use Gibson 70s, analog synths like the Neptune give a dimension to the sound that comes out of the ordinary.
If you want to do and ring PRO models with an Alesis Micron for example when the Neptune can be your secret weapon.
I am often told 'what made you this bass line? " hehe shut keep it secret for you!

See the view from the bottom.

UTILIZATION

Buttons everywhere, so for intuitive and efficient, it's ideal!

SOUNDS

Well, bah this is the slap, it's been a few days that I crushed in all directions ... and I still can not.
It just sounds bold, thick, grainy, it sizzles ... the filter is very effective.

OVERALL OPINION

For a specific use, it will surpass the virus (I know because I have a Virus C) & co ...

I use it in conjunction with a pulse and it is the foot, there is not wiggle. …
