i'an's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Cosmic King"
On / Turn the knob of the banks a, b, c, d / on module, kitchen, sculte sound instinctively.
synthesis is revised, the manual helped succinct.
depending on the circumstances, we find the management section noon:
1 notes played on channels 1
2 note on channels 2
or unison, pan tracks, etc. .. I learned ..
press the activation button osc, edit filter, env, menu, lfo are top.
curves knobs are good ..
click wheel like a safe, navigation menu 4 pages, save in two clicks.
architecture top quality, simple and precise as the stars to produce sounds.
Shocked by the power and warmth of the sound, the grain scalable, end or colossal.
goes down very low in the sub, in the earth, with freq osc 1.2 and sub needed ..
spectrum is filled living.
west east coast bass ..
I discovered mind during ..
I have a BAR in analog, VA synths, my supernova clavia & co are naturally below or next disont bringing their own grain.
I start at 10/10.
thanks the universe.

nikko666's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Polyphonic Synth original and powerful. Best of Studio Electronics. see other ads for details, I would focus on the originality of this synth and sound in this review.
It is a rack and it is true that for the price we would have AIM keyboard with wood and everything. But no. It is solid, as is all rack Studio Electronics, quite heavy and quite solid.
The edition is like the SE-1X, easy and intuitive. The buttons are fluid and they are no 'steps' in the freq of the filter like the old SE-1 for example.
CRER can sound very easy and the manual is only useful if you want to save the patch on computer for example.
The manual is anecdotal as always with SE. A few pages with Essenciel. If you do not know anything about synths, you'll just gallrer. But nothing to do with a radiant example. This is the analog, you can touch everything By creating the sound is trs 'organic'
The sound of the OMEGA is especially trs. I am fortunate to have one with the famous filters CS-80 and I must say that these filters are worth because they are really different 12db and 24db of base.
The brand offers a lot of sonic possibilities with the perfection of Studio Electronics.
The sound is its strong point. It does not sound too impressive only because it has no effects, but it's a use we appreciate it. I have many synths, and when I'm low, for example, I will try to place it on the mix.
Andromeda will ring my flat, my flat Minimoog, but the Omega will pierce the mix. It's always the same. I wish I could use my Minimoog more often, but a comparison, Omega always wins thanks to its unique precision in the sound.
It recognizes an Omega in all major U.S. production: Gwen Stephany, Rihanna, etc ... the bass sounds are vintage Omega. They have this presence that makes it a low infra that shake the windows, for example, without effort, it's natural. The unit is modern, it is necessary to sound modern, it is my opinion the best synth for productions having a R & B, Urban and Rap music. THE U.S. is his bte in this, and we can not imitate.
I put 8 as the note because despite all the synth is not everything. It is 10 in some areas.
The areas of excellence:
- Leads, basses, keyboards, punchy, effects and sequences
The PCHE or it
- Tablecloths, drums
It has unique CHARACTERISTICS cons of that are truly exceptional: the placing of a CSO is the other example gives each note a 'life' is what you play, the unison mode that plays all CSOs at the same time intelligently and provides a sound HUGE. There is also an arpeggiator trs efficient, excellent management of MIDI, the aftertouch and Veloci (Moog is zero on the plan).
In short, this unit has many exceptional assets, if you have money and want to have a U.S., it has to have the machine. This means in the mix and nothing can do the same.

Koukti's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
the Omega 8 is the best analog synth out there.
8 voice polyphony
not an ounce of breath out, even at maximum volume
Its huge, hot, cold, all that exists!
The edition is a game for children and offers huge opportunities
Not one ounce of breath out, even at maximum volume
Its huge, hot, cold, all that exists!
excellent stability of osc
J I sold my 80 cs!
in one word: PERFECT

The edition is not its greatest form. It is true that having 8 shares - 8 modules ddition switchable in the blink of an eye it's effective. But j'espre true that this technology could one day be redeemed by brand / manufacturer who has the means to go further. For machince nice, it is. But when you know the price and features APRS two hours. It remains a bitter taste or a cot can be amusing or amused to say that we played with a prototype because SERIES, this price the chance.
Okay, stay on my SuperNII or m i. Some will go for the fly-blown, which will to be found between a parrallle MKS-80 with a programmer and the OMEGA-8 (version 8 votes) as the MODEL dcliner is a fa is unspeakable.
The Rack is well 4 U. It's not even worth.
I worked with for three hours. I t happy to m'appercevoir that since the ATC-1 which is a good machine, you can have an analog phylosophy, when the mind has not historically "Keyboard" versions remain on the racks button ...
This instrument should cost 1490 euros to be competitive. Since that date he has not even the place of an outsider.
To be continued ...
