Well, I’m really impressed with this. The multi-engine aspects of the XD are fantastic sounding and I’m likely to get all 3 of Sinevibes oscillators really soon… so with this being pitched at cheaper than a Volca it’s an absolute no-brainer. Especially if you can add in the versions of the Mutable Instrument’s Plaits oscillator mode. The only slight challenge is that each oscillator mode often has a few parameters which are only accessible from the menu which I presume you can access here but at the price it seems a very minor concern.
As mentioned by a few folks already, using it as an effects box will be really cool too… especially the Riser and Submarine reverb algo’s which are so, so lush sounding.
Plus, I have to say that the chap Etienne from Korg who’s presenting this seems like a really nice guy and it’s a joy to listen to people speak with eloquence, deep understanding and passion about instruments they’ve been working on.
