Engadget Review

A strong first hardware synth from IK Multimedia. Its $200 price tag is a bargain for a monophonic analog synth with two independent oscillators. Controls are easy to figure out and use. I do wish it didn't feel as plasticky as it does and the lack of proper audio out port is disappointing.

Big sound in a tiny package for a tiny price. It is a surprisingly versatile, true analogue synth with two oscillators, two ADSR envelopes, an LFO, arpeggiator and sequencer, as well as a built-in delay effect. It can run on batteries or UB Power and is small enough to go anywhere with you. Most importantly, though, it sounds incredible and is a lot of fun to play around with.
