    1. Before pointing out that Russian companies have ties to Russia (surprise!), maybe worry about the hundreds of Western brands that continue to operate in Russia: Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Nestlé, Philip Morris, Procter & Gamble, Anheuser Busch, Unilever, L’Oreal, Ferrero, Bacardi, GlaxoSmithKline, Pioneer… just to name a few. I have a hunch they pay more taxes to the regime than a small synth manufacturer.

    2. This is part of Soma’s official statement still up on Facebook. “We are against all forms of aggression. We are against the wars, We are against THIS war too!”

      Do you have proof that they are in support for the war? Like them specifically saying they are for the war? Cause their statement say otherwise.

    3. Synthtopia has close ties with Russia. I would be deeply ashamed to read, own or touch anything from this company.

      See, I can also make a completely false statement without anything to back it up. I wonder why Synthtopia allows these kind of posts.

    4. I suppose you boycotted Moog during the Iraq war too?
      Or are American wars that kill 100s of thousands of civilians for oil ok?

  1. This was by far the most fun instrument I got to play with at SuperBooth – you’re never quite sure what it’s doing but it’s always on the verge of sounding awesome!

  2. Played it at Superboth and it was fun and quite interesting

    But for €1600 I found myself thinking that it doesn’t do very much

  3. If Sonicstate is openly against Russia’s war and pro Ukraine from day one why would you assume SOMA is supporter for Putin’s war!? They sponsored Sonicstate during superbooth. They also have family living in Russia. Think with your brain people. SOMA is clearly anti Russia’s war but they can’t be too open about it cause Russia is a country where you could disappear just for sharing an opinion.
