    1. …Yeah the USB connection on my unit crapped out after a few months. So no more Connectivity/Patch Management/Updates. It was a cool synth, but that soured it for me. Hope they fixed that for future owners.

  1. Had their Craft synth for a few years. Not half bad and loved the iOS editor for the synth! The synth was great for scratching out ideas.
