interesting, compact, a bit confusing submitted by bfields on November 7, 2014, 9:15am The membrane keyboard is limiting: for example, I don't think I could reliably play without looking at it. But the keyboard feels better than I expected.

It sounds great. I like that you could probably fit it in a (large) pocket.

There are a lot of options. Buttons and keys often have multiple uses, and I don't find the interface terribly intuitive, so you'll probably want to read the manual carefully if you want to learn all of its features.

Great little step sequenced synth submitted by Murtasma on September 25, 2017, 7:34am Works as great as I thought it would with my volca sample. Lot's of fun to play. I connected my midi keyboard to the unit since I found the membrane difficult to actually play anything remotely complex on because it's very easy to press keys you didn't mean to.You can get some really great sounds out of this unit and for the price it's hard to beat.
