    1. That depends on your personal definition of “musical”. To me, it sounds highly pleasant. I feel oversaturated with the sugar-sweet and polished sounds from many contemporary mainstream synths, so this is a welcome diversion.

  1. Looks like a lot of fun. It feels like a big brother for my nebulophone, which is also a lot of fun. That is all digital, but I still have no idea whether this is digital or not. I still don’t get what the delay is. Nick asked “is it a BBD” and I think the answer was “that’s not the right question”…

    Also interesting is the idea that this is a product like an album release to be enjoyed, in that it lets you get further inside the head of the composer/designer.

    That said I might stick with my nebulophone for now.

    1. From what I understand the delay is digital, the PT2399 chip (Cortini called it a Karoke delay, and that’s the original goal of the PT2399)

  2. Hmm..I saw the premiere last night..nice box – clever move: I think MN is simply expanding their market by putting the sonic tools of their modulars into desktop boxes, like bite – sized modular stuff without the intimidating cables ..and price tags. That’s also what the 0 coast seemed to me. Plus, get a “celeb” like Cortini on board – but then he’s always been close to MN so that’s OK (unlike RDJ & Novation….)

  3. Hey if you think it sounds unpleasant that’s understandable, but I’d rather say it sounds very rich or raw, which is a great advantage because there is a lot of harmonic content to work with. Post filtering is almost always a great idea to get the most out of your synths, though some sound more rounded out of the box, which I can see is very appealing.
