Value For Money : Correct
Monophonic analog synthesizer with two oscillators, 37 keys, 4 octaves, 100 editable presets, no delay or reverb type effect but an adjustable overload. Pitch wheel and modulation, input and output audio, MIDI, CV. Ability to use the VST distributed by the manufacturer.


* The general configuration is simple? : Yes, it's (almost) a button = one function

* The manual is clear and sufficient? Yes, it separates quickly so the machine is intuitive and easy to use!

* Editing sounds is easy it: Yes, turn the knobs until we found the sound that kills!


* The sounds they are suitable to your style of music? : On this point we feel we really an instrument in hand, the sound is warm, powerful, and it recognizes the well-grain "Moog" I like the big bad bass leads and sharp! The Little Phatty is well suited to my style of music! It may as well leave the bass to shake the walls as the Depeche Mode sound while passing by the Funk ... It covers a very rich palette of sounds, depending on what you want to do ^ ^

* Are they realistic? : This is the Moog so it looks like the Moog ^^...

* The expression is good? : Excellent! the keyboard is very pleasant

* Effects are they effective and responsive? : There is no effect ... However the sound is enough to himself! the filter is excellent!

* What are the sounds that you like, hate? : I like everything about this synth! A share can be factory presets are not all up to the machine ... But hey, who would buy a Moog only for its nimble? ...


* How long have you use it? : I use it for over 2 months now

* Have you tried many other models before buying it? : 100% analog is the only one I tried ... Having said that I have and I tried several Virtual Analog sound and really has nothing to do ... In the same price range, I tried in VA and a Nord Lead sound level I have not hooked, too cold for my taste, the Little Phatty has much more character, a range slightly below I Gaia tried the Roland SH-01 which I think is a great Virtual Analogue for its price, but the difference in sound is still strongly marked.

* What is so special that you liked most and least? : Plus: THE SOUND! finish, ease of use and the fact of having to heat a little before granting it really gives a charm to the machine! ...

The least: I try to look but I can not find.

* How would you rate the quality / price? : I was lucky to have him in perfect condition for 800 euros, I would say that nine is a price / quality ratio right for the sound quality.

* With experience you will do again this choice? : Absolutely!
