it’s about damn time…
Anyone remember the M-Audio Venom, and what happened to it?
It got poisoned?
Yes. Great and underrated synth. I still have it.
the sound module is fantastic and comes at the right price wich is very low……it has three parts indeed and if the sound good, I’ll probably buy one.
Tell us about Physis MIDI controllers. Allegedly they have a sound module based on physical modelling. There is not much about them on the Web however.
I reckon they are onto a winner here.
I’ve always liked M Audio’s stuff. Prokeys 88 SX was really good for the money.
“XLR outputs for top quality audio and lowest possible noise.”
Yes! Less noise when unplugging it.
I don’t believe anything they say.
