It's basically an analog four with an added keyboard and joystick mod, so if you just want to sequence analog sounds at home, get the A4. However, if you are an Elektron fan and want to physically play an Elektron synth live, this is your ticket. First for the good. This synth is quirky, awesome, and fun. You've got 4 note poly, but it's flexible and you can sequence and split up the notes into 4 different mono tracks, a big 4 poly patch, set the voices to unison, or anything in between. The sequencer and arpeggiators are great and very powerful to use. I think the biggest standout is the modulation options, especially the joystick which has three programmable axis. It's kind of like having three modwheels and is really fun to use and rewarding to set up. You get external inputs, Reverb, Delay, and Chorus, as well as CV contro on it's own track, as well as a button to use an external synth with midi, you could have up to 6 synths sequenced and mixed through it. There are many limitations however. The main one is the tiny screen. You'll be craning your neck for hours to program the many many features on this synth. Luckily there is Overbridge support so you can do your serious sound designing on the computer. In standard elektron fashion, you'll have to spend a lot of time learning all the key commands and how and where to get around the synth. For another downside, I find it kind of inconvenient that there's no standard easily accessible knob for the filter cutoff. Lastly, I wish the range on the sequencer was doubled to 128 steps, because I often find my melodic progression getting split up into two halves. A nitpick, but you can chain your patterns anyways so it's not a huge deal. All in all I love it. It's a cute and quirky synth. I liked it as soon as I played it. It's my jam. It won't be for everyone though.
