I've gotta echo that for the price, well actually regardless of price, this thing is a great monosynth. Bright, bubbly, bassy, ripping, and excellent TB303 if you're into that. Decent modulation possibilities; you can have it speaking in tongues easily.

Interface wise, haivng only one knob is a little annoying sometimes, if you're trying to quickly audition a tweak of more than one parameter at a time. But that's why it's a relatively inexpensive machine. All parameters are MIDI controllable, though. I use Cubase's contoller editor, and it's fairly fast that way to get whatever you're after.

So only one knob, but if you can get over that, the sound is fabulous. I nearly always split the output and run half of it back through the analog input, sometimes processing the signal on the way back in. Add a QuadraverbGT or similar processor and the men in black will be showing up at your door.

What the last guy said is funny because I'm buying one to replace my Pro-One for road usage. A couple of tours getting pounded around in the back of a van did wonders for destroying the Pro-One's keyboard. (They just weren't designed for that, and daily surgery was often required to get some keys to work...) Not to mention the unexpected pot "freak-outs" when you didn't give it 2 hours to warm up.

I've searched long and hard for something to become "a more reliable Pro-One" and the ATC-1 is it for a great price. If you're looking for something new to emulate an old monosynth, this is IT. I've done the searching for you. I'm looking forward to many years of "feak-out" free operation!
