See the website of Radikal Technologies.


Very complex when you know nothing like me at first, but the manual is well thought out, if we find gradually. Do not buy this machine and believe that we will go around functions and subtle opportunities in two days. Learning just be long and daunting with the many menu and submenu. More manipulating the machine, and we understand its architecture and the final still damn good, given the huge number of parameters that bit set. Some features missing from the bone defects are not complete. But nothing nasty, given the monumental building of the product ... I love to live with, is in from all directions, without ever stopping the sound. One little record on the fly patterns, record sounds modified route sounds, playing with many filtering options, Fx, etc ect ... here and with a quality of demented madness finally the total live a killing ... We also just put tons of samples. We make a few pieces complete chaining several patterns, controlled external instruments via midi sequencer excellent. Finally, we do a lot of little things, you just have to be addressed seriously, what it suffices to itself. After she shortcomings but hopefully always updates the designer ...


The sound quality is there, is not to squirm. We quickly understand that we hands, the rolls of groovebox. We just do almost everything with such style of music.


I bought it new in December 2010, I am still discovering a lot of possibilities so far, and am not about to sell it.

Did you try many other models before buying it?
I had the Electribes ESX1 and EMX1.

How do you rate the quality / price?
For me it is worth its price.

With experience, you do again this choice? YES I remake this choice.

-Characteristics of the manufacturer's website.


The general configuration is it simple?

-At first glance, especially for a newbie like me, you say that the task is insurmountable (I was even afraid to have made a big mistake ...) but quickly found her only a week repères.Après study, I am also pleasantly surprised to find myself quite rapidement.Tout logique.Il will still be a few hours to familiarize themselves with the main fonctions.Mais it worth it to hang. The result you will be there.

Editing sounds and effects is it easy?

-Yes to the pros I pense.Mais I can for my inexpérience.J despite my testing, I triturated and strength to test the possibilities, the machine is often a better idea than I had originally . The possibilities are truly enormous.

The manual is clear and sufficient?

"It is more than manuel.Il is very well done and it will be necessary even for experienced musicians instrument.Le better understand this is to print the manual (in PDF is a bit stuffing) and do all the exercises until they have understood (I still have a bulk of work still ...). It's the only way out without tearing too much hair ... If necessary, 2 forums on this site are very active and will answer many of your questions.Le manufacturer does not mind either to enlighten you but only in English or German.


The sounds they are suitable to your style of music? Are they realistic?

"It is always subjective tastes and couleurs.Mais rendering is amazing ... I am fortunate to have an amp and speakers (and neighbors) that follow and I never heard anything like it . It's mind-blowing! The analog synth and countless creative possibilities will allow you to make your own sons.Des fatter with more fins.Cette machine can adapt to all styles of music.

The effects are they effective and responsive?

-There are two very effective delay that can make a flanger effect in the combinant.Mais a little reverb would be welcome (perhaps in a future OS?)

What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?

-Since we can create sounds and samples characters, the question does not arise ...


How long have you use it?

-1 Weeks

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

No, I am totally new to synthesis.

What is so special that you like most and least?


-Sound! Sound! Sound! It has even exceeded what I imagined! Here is the bandwidth!

Instrument-built by hand (which is rare in the era of chinoiserie) with electronic components for high-end enthusiasts.

-The fact that this type of machine allows people to strum like not knowing me to still make beautiful compositions.

His large-autosuffisance.Ayant back problems, I just need a cable jack / RCA 3 m to the junction mixer / sofa and it is my definition of happiness ...

-The hybrid synth has many parameters that lead to the creation.

The sequencer-synth hybrid

Low-encombrement.C is a Swiss Army knife that includes a large number of fonctions.Ce I really like because free outlets are becoming a rare commodity in my ...

The PC-only serves to import / export of samples.Je prefer knobs to field mouse ...

-The manual (available in French).

-The availability of the manufacturer.

-The finishing bois.C is useless but I love ...

The -

-The management of internal memory is a little hard to understand ...

Screen-too petit.27 pages sub menus for the analog part ... Wow! Personally, I play only for plaisir.Mais for someone who makes live, you should still prepare ...

-I did not understand the "Step by Step" record ... I expect an explanation because I have a great need for sequences of DSP ...

Non-OS fini.Pas to overdub ... But it expected in the next OS.

The knobs-ask a little more responsive when you want to vary rapidly paramètres.De addition, they do not all very bien.Bah ... A piece of paper and you'll have it ...

-One or two more effects STP Jorg (next OS ???)...

-It will take patience to get one in France neuf.Introuvable currently due to launch another produit.Je wonder if I have not touched the latest model in stock in the world lol! The manufacturer has ceased production for an indefinite period ... But ... You can not just ask a small structure ...

-Handling difficult the first few days .. So, it spends all his time libre.Être single or married is essential ... I would have thought to look after the garden one day ...

"I have some latency issues to the record. I look again the response from the designer before I decide.

How would you rate the quality / price?

-One could say that it is expensive at first abord.2000 €, it's a sum that sûr.Mais given the capacity and the large number of integrated functions, it is very correct in most fond.De The manufacturer will offer to upgrade the hardware part in the V1 besoin.Les owners who sent in the making now have the same specifications as the V2.Les big boxes do not have this kind of politics ... I 'd be curious to see the price of a similar machine with a large sign ... But there is no equivalent I think ...

With experience, you do again this choice?

-I discovered by happy hasard.J 'I was so surprised by the sound reproduction that I just wish not to have done avant.Alors I answer yes to this question, despite these small défauts.Mais I know of no perfect instrument ... I repeat this advice in a while when I have gained some experience ... I attribute a score of 9 / 10 to the instrument all the same.

Radikal Technologies Spectralis 2
groove box comprising a crazy beatbox complete, an analog synthesizer, 3 digital synths ... all the characteristic site radikal technologies ...


at the beginning we took a little head to take control of the bike but after 2 or 3 days you start to understand how it works, and the potential of the machine explodes! the manual is a bit messy (and in English, I ca me derrange but not for non-English AC must be a bit hot), otherwise the forum radikal technologies full of info that helped me enormously on moultes points!


the sound level is the big slap!:
-Rhythms are enormous, easily editable in real time, each party can run on different measures, and not different
It is huge analog synth, the sounds can range from super fat deep to the lens, in short you can do anything for any musical delirium
Digital-synths are excellent too, can get out of huge bass, perfectly round, classic synths but equally good

in short we can do everything with, and for any style of electro music, and the ability to import sounds, whether rhythmic or synths make this a versatile machine maliciously, in the limit it is sufficient to She even ...


I have this machine for 2 weeks and already I was enjoying myself with death, my live will be transformed redikalement with this bike;) I tried a lot of other boxes of sound before and it's really the first Once I have one as promising, I already made a dozen patterns with, every time I manage to find different sounds and rhythms and more easily, no need to spend 10 hours to find her which abuts, is the immediate and effective! In addition, the bone was not yet finished, ca promises very good things for the future such as adding effects and more distal type, and some improvements at the sequencer ... short for me is the queen of groove box, the big big sound and more, has left the test soon in a position to see the live audience explode !!:))
