    - The software works he correctly on this configuration?
    OK, when I put it on more synth in a parallel range ca chouilla train (but I know if it's recommended by the manufacturer!)

    -What performance?
    It's good MIDI control is instantaneous and is made qu'honnorable.

    - This software + hardware is stable?
    I have not had a problem it is very stable!

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long have you use it?
    For 1 week (hehe I know it's just to give an avi but hey!)

    - What is so special that you like most and least?
    I love to tweak it, it sounds good, I shall taste the touch (humm hummm)
    It can not be used without PC (because there is no midi output)

    - Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    Not really, I still assess a demo version.

    - How would you rate the quality / price?
    I think it's by far my best investment with Fruityloops!
    A € 650 fesait that expensive anyway, but at the current price, Throw away your advice on it (no no no I sold mine!)

    - With experience, you do again this choice? ...
    What a question! YES

    I like the controller hardware (Extremely practice), I like the sound of the MS-20 (many, many), the Polysix (much), the Wavestation (a little too Fm for me) and Legacy to m Changing with the first two effects: standard!
    - Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    The PRO-53 and FM-7: Fm m'intresse do not so I no opinion if the PRO-53 even when sounded good, but I find the MS20 easier to edition and with a more bold, more dynamic.

    The CPU dpend presets but dfans is a good average.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I did that for a week.
    I hardly software instruments so that no point of comparison with "real" but the sound is perfect for me.
    I wanted a formulation MS20 but I immediately find the original architecture of the Polysix. The use of the MS20-FX plugins effects directo returns you in the DLIR Goldfrapp soon as you put in a vote. I love it.
    (Even if at the filters, when one of the Quad Frohmage Ohmforce, we need nothing else).

    The Wavestation is not my cup of tea. Too typ anne 80 crap. Surely Perfect to take to Eric Serra.

    The Legacy Cell can go further by combining the MS20 and Polysix either layer or a keyboard (if you have two MIDI interface). Finally dernire option obviously only works in standalone. The presets are quite many loquents the possibilities of combinations.

    This collection has been much ink (like any software synths analog formulation legendary) but is seen as taking the new (159 euros for me) is the best package possible. The CONTRL keyboard is nice, a little "toy" aspect of it has to be trs MRIT teaching for those who engage in synthse.
    Its plasticky knobs are still quite playable and even sensation will be worth probably not true but when the same apprciable trs.

    My soft synths in prfrs are: GForce Minimonsta OhmForce Symptohm and (my prfrs) Gforce Oddity and the Logic ES2. But I think I'll use a lot dsormais Legacy Cell.

    Advice to owners Toneport Line 6: Move the sounds of a multaions pramps accumulation of micro amp or guitar / bass can bring a warmth and a very fat grain supplmentaire.

    Report qualitprix unbeatable at the new price (close to 4 times cheaper than THE FIRST edition ... I thought they had something but not removed)

    Ultra advisable for beginners in synthse who want to do anything but sweep the banks of presets. (And then exploded the patchbay is for my 9 year old kid whose ultimate ambition is to gnrer sounds weird space).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I like the controller: the keys are a bit small and far from one touch "high-end" but only if only one is not too demanding.
    For cons, the system of knobs and patch is very convenient. A reply to three quarters of MS20: perfect for live, rehearsals, or just play music.

    I appreciate the simplicity, I who have bought to begin with the universe MIDI: it's perfect.

    The sounds are largely what I expected.

    From a visual standpoint, I really appreciate.

    I regret the fact that there is no MIDI and rigor that the knobs are not motorized, for the most imple recall. But good.

    This choice I would do without hesitation to 159 €, but I will pair it with another keyboard-master, a kind Axiom 61 for a MIDI, a touch piano, and keys.

    OVERALL OPINION

    - I reu today, but I use the version dmo for a month.
    - What I sduit this synth is of course the hardware interface, I would say even that's what made me crack because as owner of reaktor, c ' far from being a silent need.
    - I have not tried other models, because it is unique in its kind because it comes with its interface.
    - The report is qualitprix poustouflant, I pay 159 euros for a Controller, three formulations of synths, a comprehensive set of VST effects. I t prt pay the same price for the MS-20 alone with its Controller.
    - I'm in love with this toy, I increasingly feel like a machine with a very direct ACCS without rivs keep your eyes on my screen to know what I have just changed paramtre . I find the sound of the MS-20 really fat and heavy as all round trs. Although sr in the high, there is a good deal of aliasing which proves that this is not an accumulation over the top, but I do not care, I use it in low and mediums! I t surprised by the enjoyable effects of a quality u are all fine for a product of this price. I do not comment on the Wavestation and Polysix prvu I did not use.

More available in stores because of the heavy metal act ... In short I found it, and I'm not disappointed. Already it is terribly beautiful (even if it seems stupid, I need to attach myself to the subject and I find it difficult to work with "instruments" I do not like ... So terribly effective, j 'especially loves the sound of MS20, the controller ordered the possibilities are enormous, the sounds are too huge, it literally jumps in the mouth if j'puis say, super sharp, and above all with a grain ... the relatively friendly Wavestation it is huge to create ambient groundwater, and then to the diversity and size of the bank's (about 500 I think). I would not call the Polysix I do not like. the Legacy Cell is pretty cool, allows mixing the two (MS20 and Polysix, too bad it not mix the Wavestation ...). Only small downside is that it is not on the best controller, the keys are a bit small, not necessarily very pleasant to the touch, and then three octaves is just a little. Anyway, for my part I literally fell in love with controller software and sounds!

    The features are absolutely not lacking anything in any way whatsoever, in comparison to the original synths it's even got more features.

    If you don't already know how to use the original synths you may need to invest some time in that but the standalone and vst interface is really easy to use.

    The sounds are absolutely unbelievable. The Legacy package contains soft synths of the MS-20, Polysix, Wavestation and the Legacy Cell in which you can combine these different synths and their effects.

I've played both the original MS-20 and Polysix and I must say I was totally blown away by the accuracy in which these lagendary synths are reproduced. There are even extra options that the original synths didn't have. For instance, the original (monophonic) MS-20 can now be turned into a 32 voice counting polyphonic synth. The same goes for the Polysix. The MS-20 also has it's additional unison unit built in.

    I've never had any problems with the software besides the fact that you really need a heavy processor to deal with these synths. I've got a Sony VAIO laptop with a 3gHz processor and if I run about 6 of these synths at the same time (about half of them having lots of voices and the other half one or two) you can almost litterally see little heatwaves rising from my beloved computer.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I absolutely LOVE the Legacy collection because it brings you back to those good old analogue days. The love factor is increased by the MS-20 controller that you get with the package. If you give it some of your love, you'll get back ten times the love you put in.
