Way Out Ware KikAxxe
Installs carefree mac.
Way Out Ware provides an assessment within 30 days, it will be more than enough.


Performance zero since the sound is awful. The real Axxe him with a single tilt simply has nothing to do.
The only common point is arrangement of faders to look pretty ... Eating cpu power that's absurd.


Well, emulate a synth that has a single tilt as Axxe and offers only two waveforms, this in itself is a bit silly. The synth Arp takes on its meaning and all its potato and it's because he has the same components as the Odyssey. turn dark vsti bland and featureless is really no interest, you have to go live oddity, or any other vsti with at least 2 Virtual oscilloscope to compensate.

The sound is hilarious. The korg bundle fared better with the MS20 Polysix .... I had not already liked their adaptation arp 2600, that I was in a bundle and I did not use it once on a piece for 5 years. There is 1000 times worse.

Let me be clear: I go more typical analog sounds on my Ensoniq sq1 on these emulations.
I tried a bunch of VSTi, I parcequ a continuous power to hear a constant boyish enthusiasm on sound quality that is now obtained with the software blah ... but for now nothing works. I find that among the least worst might be largo (but 150 euros as some spend 50 more and get a blofeld ...)

THE only future that is Axxe kick the trash

Way Out Ware KikAxxe
Installation without problem.
The manual is small enough to install but less to use.
A menu of the interface contains two lments inverss.
Not everything is intuitive and more.


Configuration: P4 2.6 GHz, 1GB RAM, Cubase.

Under my configuration, only one instance takes 40% CPU (according to the indicator of Cubase). For a small synth not too expensive, it is regrettable.
In addition, although Integrates a track Stereo, I only left his cot!
In standalone version, I note not block.

It seems that this product is not optimized yet and buggy.


I've had four days.

In +: The squenceur, intgre box rhythms, delay and sound.
In -: bugs, gluttony Resources machines!

VSTi, I have a package of free of charge. 45 euros is the correct price for a synth like this but given the difficulty of use due to deficits problem, I would do not have that choice ...
In the state, I do not recommended him.

Way Out Ware KikAxxe
Installation without problems, the specification is sufficient.
I have not found a conflict.
The general pattern seems easy for someone who knows the synths. Unaccustomed to the type Arp synthesizers, I quickly found my bearings. I find for my part very intituif from the moment we know the principles of synthesis to create stamps for the sequences of the synth and the sequencer for drums & percussion is very understandable even for someone like me practicing very little drum machines.
The manual on the CD, is a bit austere at first. For an explanation of each parameter you have to click on it to get the figure and the function concerned.


KikAxxe runs on three different machines:
A dedicated music PC: AMD Athlon64 X2 Dual Core 4600, 2.41 GHz, 2.00 GB of Ram.
A dedicated music laptop: Asus Model Z92Jseries A6JM, Core Duo T2400, 1, 83 Ghz, 2 GB Ram.
A laptop running with Vista: Toshiba Satellite 300-120, Core2 Duo T5450, 1.67 GHz 2048M Go Dram.
I have no problems with the three configurations. However, it is fairly CPU intensive and requires a configuration with a good processor - Dual Core or Core2 Duo and 2 GB of RAM to work smoothly. Below, the soft doire "rowing" seriously. For my part, I did not notice any bugs.
To the right CPU, from the same file on Live 7, it is 16 to 17% on the AMD Athlon64 X2 Dual Core 4600, from 23 to 24% on the T2400 Core Duo, and 14% on Core2 Duo T5450 running on Vista ...
Performance issue, I think it is, it is very creative, it makes you want to push him into a corner.
With my three configurations, KikAxxe does not crash ever, it is very stable.


I've since its release.
What I like is being able to build a sound combining sequences, sequence and pace. I especially like being able to combine sequences and synth drums, assign different patches, to have six different kicks, create a pattern and you can edit it easily with filters.
Otherwise, even paying a little more, I would have preferred a few more options in terms of waveforms available. But it's a detail.
I have a good instrumentarium combining hardware, VST, and synths and I am demanding of my apps.
KikAxxe became one of the synths I work with most. I can not get enough. What interests me is to get out of the sequence leading to say conventional things progressive and experimental. I combine it, including the Ems Synthi Avs, emulation Ludwig Rehberg Ems Synthi Aks of. The KikAxxe has become for me an item to my creations.
What I like also is being able to create sequences very "spaces", air, Crystaline, but really "dirty" dirty, cradingue. It is this diversity that I love.
Clarification, it is perfect for Ableton Live. It works wonders with native effects. I am thinking of reverb and Delay Filter.
Yes, totally and without any restrictions. Particularly in light of the price.
