I actually bought the EVS1 brand new when it came out - I can't remember what possessed me. OK, it isn't the greatest synth of all time, the Atari software is very odd and unresponsive. It sits in my set-up and does nothing most of the time, but I've come up with a few interesting clangy sounds, and some very strange bleeps and burps just messing about with it. I wouldn't part with it... because I wouldn't get anything for it, so it might as well stay.

Well... as usual the factory presets are rather boring (as in most synths) but the potential is there. The user interface is a joke. Some of the sounds are excellent, but why load the machine whit so much crap? Boring analog imitating sounds. This machine shines when i comes to metallic, sparkling strange sounds. It would have been better if the EVS-1 factory programmers had filled it with that instead.

The EVS-1 is a far more versatile synth than anyone first thought. With proper usage, this synth becomes an inexhaustive well of excellent sounds. The trick is, you have to have imagination in the first place. I paid £50 for mine, and I find use for it on every tune I do. Perfect for Electro and Drum&Bass. The EVS-1 is a highly reccommended piece of kit.

Oyyyayy!! Arrrrriiiibbbbba!

Came across this module some time ago. Bought it for FL75,- ($35US). Terrible sounds. But still, there were some sounds that were quite usable. Not too bad value for less money I would say. Not in favour of anyone buying the EVS-1, but if you really want to have it, DO NOT pay more than $50US- $75US for it. I understand that the prices in the US differ from the Dutch ones, so in the US you should pay considerably less money for this synth. Oh, and get the editor. Without it, it's just a piece of .... well ...... lesser would be sample player.
