Seriously,..... one of the best V/A synths I've ever heard. The old school fader system is easy to use and can make so many different combinations of sounds. Don't care about the lack of presets,... this unit is for sound designers,....and it sounds fantastic!

It looks like a toy but it is a really useful analogue modelling synth. It's really quick to get to good sounds. A number of functions are combined but the decisions made by Yamaha are really good. I've been using analogue synths since the 80s and I really appreciate how quickly I can dial in something good. The benefit to analogue synth rookies is that a lot of the non-useful configurations that a fully featured synth has are left out. The small keys are very playable. The only complaint is that you need an iPad to store patches (haven't got one and have no need for one) but hopefully something for Windows/Android will be forthcoming. In the meantime I make patch charts which is something I'm used to doing anyway for my real analogue synths.
