The sounds that come out of this module are so outrageous and so deep, you will find it very hard not to keep it out of your music.

The filter has a blatant, nasty 'stepping' sound as you scroll through the harmonics. It has put me off this synth big style. If you like your filter to scream like a scary bitch, it does that. But i don't, and it squeals too easily. The bass is crazy, stupid fat, but the drawback of that means that basslines is 'bout the only thing i use it for since it's a monosynth. The filter is cool, but very unclean. I definitely see why people are talking about it like it's a classic, tho. It's got a tight, appealing sound and you can easily program the modulation sources to do some insane sh-t. But I shouldn't be be using this thing as a central sound source, so Im selling it. Check out the filter carefully tho. It *acts* just like a digital filter. A bad, bad thing. Bad meaning bad.

I got Pulse and AN1x and when considering them(stupid/boring) Pulse is really Warm -sounding(analog) and produces better moog-style leads. I have heard better moog-basses come from AN1x, really FAT ones, but there is no doubt that Pulse can't do better/as good if u have skills.. You want great, FAT and warm analog sound, Pulse is yours. Sometimes it sounds huge and my mixers "peak" -led starts flashing; u have to turn volume critically down.

I agree completely with Elvis Bucklehorse. This machine is incredible. The sounds are almost too thick and warm, too substantial. If I wasn't one already, this synth is what's going to turn me into a complete tone fetishist. Programming is pretty self explanatory (with a few minor exceptions), and the range of sounds is diverse. I don't mind at all that it's monophomic. I got mine for under $400 on ebay. Worth it at twice the price.

After spending months obsessively fiddling with the big name VA's (AN1X, NL2, JP8000, Virus, etc...) in music shops to no avail, a clued-in clerk brought out the Pulse for me to try. It instantly put every other modern synth I'd played with into perspective. You needn't be an audiophile to hear the difference between a machine that directly manipulates an electrical current and one that only uses electricity as a means to trigger code. The Pulse is cheaper and sounds better than any virtual analogue synth, cheaper and more reliable than a Minimoog, and ultimately, for $500 or less, is simply the best deal around.

Other synths "do" more, but I prefer an instrument that does ONE thing exceptionally well to an instrument that does several things adequately. The Pulse synthesizes sound exceptionally well. It's made me a terribly happy consumer. Buy it.
