I saw a guy below, "Frank", giving this synth a mere 2 out of five....its a synth, my friend, not a bread and butter S+S (although it has S+S too, in addition to the additive programming, and its all pristine). Anything less than a full mark for this one is plain stupidity. Ok, it cannot do trad. synth strings, and "real" instruments, rather it sounds like a MODULAR to my ears, with a screaming resonance and optional HP or LP DCF that is the best ive ever heard on a digital machine, incl all those hyped VAs. It can also do great kicks and various drumsounds, and every other sound you can (and cannot) imagine. The sound quality is unreal. God, those pads...hearing is believing!

This synth has a lot of sonic power. I would not trade my K5000s for anything in the world. The sounds are insane for example the other nigth I was programing a sound.while I was holding the key down for 5 sec you can hear a nice pad but after that it turn into a metallic delay noise. I would recomend this synth to anyone who is looking for new sounds.

Well, this is a user-defined synth. DO NOT judge it by the presets. The additive synth engine on this machine is unf&$%ing real. If you aren't aware of synth programming, forget it. If you are, then meet the end of your voice-structuring world. 64 harmonics, each has its own 5-stage looping envelope, 64 formant filters with envelopes! A DCO, DCA, DCF. Morph mode, pcm/additive. I'm history.

With a bit of programming, I could contact aliens with this thing.

I agree fully. Presets are a bit boring but there is some very interesting sounds in the internet. With knobs you can easily make patch sound very different than the original. It's great for ambient and industrial; it can sound sweet or rough. Filters can scream as hell and easily be disturbing. Samples could be a bit better since it's at best using both samples and additive. With some cool choir/mellotron/stringpad waves it would be killer (matter of taste, I bought it for pads). It's very cool and unique synth, but too complicated for me.
