I bought this synth second hand for 250 euros a couple of months ago. I just love it. It's extremely easy to use, it just sounds great, although it really is a lead/bass/fx machine. I haven't been able to program good pads on it, but hey, that's what my KS5 is for. :)

The only reason I didn't give it a 5/5 is because it doesn't have a dedicated on/off switch.

But in the end this synth is simply great!

Boooommm. Stack a couple of these monsters and you´ll never buy a virtual analogue synth again. Access and Clavia - go home!!!

The Pulse was my first analog synth, got it when they first came out and paid far too much then... But it was worth it. I love it, dont use it so much but for those times when I need some raw noises and bass, I know where to turn. It can do some really nice sounds if you play with the cross-modulation and osc-sync.

Only thing that bugs me is the finite steps (every parameter is between 0 and 127) but thats not a big negative.

I'm now looking to replace it with the PLus model so I can use some external filters (via CV) instead of the sometimes-too-clean-and-flat-sounding 24db lowpass on the Pulse. Although for self-oscillating leads and sine-doodlings the pulse does a good job.

Don't get a Pulse. Get an Evolver. Just as simple as that.

I love my Pulse. When I first got it, I had a difficult adjustment period. I was used to romplers and VA's with internal effects and loads of polyphony. The Pulse doesn't have those things, but it does have a very strong sound. The Pulse can pound out so much low end; it is the best synth for bass I have ever used. The Pulse can made loud, aggressive bass and lead sounds, but it can also make pretty sounds. It has a nice 4 pole filter and huge sounding DCO's. A lot of the Pulse's character comes from the programmer's ability to overdrive the mixer stage. By setting the osc's to a low volume in the mixer, you can achieve a cleaner tone. Overdriving the mixer with high osc volumes produces a more aggressive sound. This gives the Pulse a wider range of sounds than it would otherwise have, and extends its usefulness. Some people have mentioned not liking the oscillators. I like them, but they have a unique sound that I guess some people wouldn't like. As I said, I love my Pulse. I can't imagine making a music without my Pulse.
