Given the number of buttons and pots can be difficult to better. The buttons are backlit at night is beautiful and a real Christmas tree!
Its ergonomics are exemplary, really! Programming is fun. The red buttons are a little 'click' when you select them. It is very easy to change a sound or create a new one.
The sounds of this synth is suitable for all music.
The Supernova II is considered by the PRO of the dance as the ultimate synth. With the Virus C / TI happened after recess with more polyphony and a grain a little different.
In summary, it sounds serious. It sounds enormous, the stabs at cracking the speakers, the brass at Jupiter8, sequences at the Evolver, the moog bass, and a loooong sweeps of dynamic incredible. He knows everything. It is just limited by its small number of waveforms.
I have a Waldorf XT, Q, 2 C Virus desktop, a Darkstar XP2, an ion, a K-station, a JP-8080, a MS2000R a AN1x a ESQ1 and a Roland XP-30, a Neptune 2 , an MFB synth 2, a Korg Monopoly all electribe etc ...
In short I can compare.
The Supernova II is the result of subtractive synthesis. He can do anything. It is warm (from the Nord Lead) and in addition it is undercut.
It is very beautiful, its ergonomics are excellent.
This is an excellent machine and those who do not appreciate it, probably a problem with subtractive synthesis, it continues to do with mumuse groovebox and 2 decks!
I'm not used to all but the 10 C Virus in my opinion the best virtual machine synthesis.
Note: the side of the occasion is 800-900 EUR depending on the state. Those seeking a Supernova II to France to 600 EUR will be difficult.
