:D

Sonicstate did a video review of that synth, pretty much made me go: "Hmmmmmmmmm... Do want!". Looks like a really accessible piece of kit with loads and loads of potential, love the character of the sounds that were pulled out of it. I can most definitely see myself getting one in the future...

8 knobs and 8 buttons. But, you CAN use it in another Daw, so, pretty close.

If you don't need hardware, e.g. poly aftertouch, wheels, ribbons, then this is like an improved Europa.
If you DO need hardware, it's even better.
Early reports from Knobcon friends are expressing great things about the wheels, ribbon, and most of all the implementation of the poly aftertouch keyboard.

Well fuck me, I *am* going to get one as soon as fun funds allow. That one is freaking accessible and that equals loads of fun. :clap: <3

Anyone else here with a Hydrasynth? Finally pulled the trigger on the keyboard version and am waiting for the order to be processed, hopefully get to collect it after work today...

I have the keyboard version. It's fantastic. I think the concept and architecture make it an instant classic. It's so fun to play.

Cool! How do feel about the way it integrates to Reason and your workflow? Any tips/hints at getting it set up? :D

This is my first "proper" hardware synth so will be fun... was also thinking of using it as the master keyboard but will have to see, currently running Novation ReMOTE61 for that purpose.

I don't use it as a controller. I only run audio out into Reason, sometimes sending MIDI from Reason to it.

Ok, most likely will end up doing just that. :) Have it already installed in place, currently figuring out the routing via Focusrite LS56 / Saffire MixControl... as in, that routing table is not the easiest to understand, especially when this is the first time I am using it to patch audio sources other than microphones through it. Oh well, just found tutorials on how it should work so hopefully I get it running proper in a few.

Wait, you just picked it up after work and you're currently figuring out how to properly route the audio through your interface? How are you not slapping some headphones on and just melting your mind for the remainder of the evening?! :mrgreen:

Had a lot of stuff to do and I just wanted to run it through my monitors... was also tired as heck and went to bed early. Anyway, I managed to fix the routing issues (which were actually not routing issues at all...). As in, I had for some unfathomable reason disabled all the other audio inputs aside from 1 & 2 in Reason. Took a while to figure it out.

But now... holy fucking hell is this thing fun! And I love the sound quality, expressiveness and playability.

And this will most likely not be the last hardware synth for me. Already have my eye on Malekko Manther for a beast of an monosynth... I am just glad that I am not that interested in modular stuff... yet. :puf_bigsmile:
