Simple but effective.
Connectors: 1 OUT stereo headphones, pedal, and MIDI IN / OUT (maybe on a THROUGH OUT but check because I am not using the THROUGH in my configuration.)
I have a rack with the northern extension of polyphony.
It is supposed to be based on the architecture of a prophet.
It remains despite a VA. But its advantage is its personality and its ergonomics.
Oascillo 2, 2 LFO, 1 ARP, 1 envelope modulation, a filter and an amplifier section.
Very easy to take control. It creates fast on this synth.
The little thing to know is silkscreened on the machine.
I have not opened the manual. Here we are light years from the shambles of a virus for editing.
Sounds appropriate to me perfectly.
I replaced my Ion per a Juno 106 and the north rack. Each is more specialized in its field and for the price of my Ion, I have a result more versatile and better eventually.
The sound is precise, clear, efficient handling, creation easy. It is limited in a sense because he has his personality, but it allows a lot of things. A small variation on a knob can greatly change the sound, so the possibilities are enormous. The pads and the leads are my favorite sounds.
The ARPEGIO is simple but dancing.
I've had it about a year. Some say it sounds cool. I think it sounds today. He is not aggressive in the treble as an Ion and does not sound trance, eurodance as influenza A. Of course by customizing a virus patch can sound differently and in a tone so sweet but the north rack lends itself more easily and readily to my music and my way of composing.
I have or have had: an ESX, a tone, a Monomachine, a juno 106, DX200, a V-Synth and V-synth XT, v1 and v2 Sherman, a Sunsyn.
The north has its place rack in my house!
Passed through a Big Muff Pi Russian or in the Sherman it does not sound all cold. Rather even vintage! And it hard on a strict sequence of leads.
For 300 €, price with my purchase, yes, I do it again this election. The value for money is excellent of course.
