IK Multimedia has designed the Uno Synth to combine portability with a powerful analog synth engine. This highly flexible synthesis engine not only excels in producing the rich, warm, punchy, deep bass sounds that are the core of a high-quality monophonic synth, it's also perfectly designed to bring a wide sonic palette of leads, drones, arps, sequences, sweeps and effects.

A powerful synth engine gives a professional sound, courtesy of the all-analog signal path and wide range of features. The UNO Synth features 2 VCOs, noise generator, resonant multimode VCF and VCA, alongside 2 independent VCOs with saw, triangle and pulse waveforms. The waveforms have a continuously variable shape including PWM of the square waves, plus a separate white noise generator.

The UNO Synth also includes a 2-pole OTA-based analog resonant sweepable multimode filter with overdrive, and 7 LFO waveforms to modulate Pitch, Filter, Amp, and continuous oscillator wave shapes including PWM.

The UNO Synth's 100 built-in presets feature an associated arpeggio and sequence, so you can find inspiration straight away. 80 of those presets are fully writable, letting you store your go-to sounds for instant access. More than 40 controls are included on the top panel of the UNO Synth for direct and intuitive control over multiple parameters - perfect for beginners.

While UNO Synth is monophonic nature, its two independent oscillators can be tuned differently to also generate interesting pad-like interval sounds as well as octaves. Pulse width modulation of each oscillator provides the ability for a single oscillator to sound like two while the second oscillator can be tuned to an octave or interval for advanced modular-style timbres from the greatest classic synths.

Based on the ultimate patches uno demo on youtube, this synth is SO capable although you'd never know it from other videos demonstrating it. Very happy with my purchase.

Pros: This is not a toy. IK has designed a dual vco analog mono-synth full of features. Oscillators might not be as 'thick' or 'bouncy' as more much more pricy mono-synths, but there are awesome sounds here. For the price, it has a sequencer with a hundred presets, arpeggiator with lots of control. Has effects including Wah and Delay. Totally fun synth! Cons: Bat life is very limited (advertised as up to 10 hrs - couldn't get more than 3 using Energisers). With batteries there are no issues with noise, but who wants to replace AAs every three hours? Noise from the USB might need to be dealt with: either by isolating usb from other usb toys or through a high quality mixer/amp system. Still, I'll flag this as an issue because the unit seems to have high-gain out (one out for both headphones and line) - I had to fiddle with it until it was ok (sometimes you can hear the oscillators - I have picky ears). But hey, pay more 20X the price and there is still always something - nature of the beast.
