IK Multimedia UNO Synth

Well I surely do not know what to make of this video, but it might be cool?

Oh man, this thing was so hyped by IK, and to think their marketing catchphrase for this synth was ‘Get ready for a Paradigm Shift’ :joy: :sleeping:

Yeah, quite the statement. I’m not an expert, but I don’t think this really constitutes a paradigm shift.

oh god no…

looking at the specs it uses IK multimedia’s own TRS to MIDI cables which I have some experience with. They are on their IOS audio interface which I used a while ago and they were awful. Really lose connections and very unreliable.

I really am loathing this massive shift by manufacturers to ditch the full sized MIDI DIN ports.

We should take a stand and just not buy anything that requires an adapter for basic thing like MIDI DIN.

In like how they managed to make a hardware synth that looks like a bad 3D render of a VST plugin. :slight_smile:

Looks fun though. If they manage to sell it for $150 street they should be fine.

Nice to see more battery powered stuff coming out, the video was everything that I could have hoped for, the only thing that could have made it better is if they had put a donk on it. :joy:

Paradigm-Shifted :rofl:

Bit of a shame they went for 4 pots + 4 selection buttons instead of a 4 by 4 grid of 16 pots.

I’ll have a look at the drum box when it comes…:face_with_monocle:

Just makes me wish Korg would release the Gadgets in h/w form even more!

Could have made it usable as a general controller as well. On a related note, can behringer stop making synths I don’t want and print up a couple of copies of the bcr2000? Don’t they know what I need?

Somehow it reminds my on my good ol’ ZX81. Ditching real keys wasn’t a great idea even back then in the 80s …

I must say I do get excited by new synths easily. But lately, specially when monophonic synths are announced, I just take a deep breath, spend some time with my A4 and realize I already have four of those with an amazing sequencer.

That’s a nope from me.
it looks like a remote control from the 80s. And it’s just a collection of the “most normal” synth features with no voice of it’s own.

Made in Italy. And the price :thup:

That’s the paradigm shift! The return to the late 70s early 80s membrane paradigm!!!

:open_mouth:

Hmmm . . .

Nice price. Nice size (I like smaller synths). No menu-diving (I’d still have the AS-1 if I didn’t have to go into the menu for like 95% of the parameters).

I’m intrigued.

Edit: didn’t see it was made in Italy. I’ll make sure to get an extended warranty to an extended warranty.

… more esoteric HP or BP filter …

So that’s really an otherworldly machine … :smiley:

Next level stuff right there
