I’ve been wanting a Dave Smith / Sequential instrument for many years. The sound design and quality of this instrument is from another planet. So here are a few things I like and dislike about it. 1. The sequential name is printed below the amplifier section. After looking at multiple videos and pictures of this synth I noticed they all said Dave Smith instruments. After talking with Sequential I was told they have replaced the printing on these to the sequential name. Also printed on the back panel of the synth. Looks really cool in my opinion. 2. The wood panels add a nice vibe.3. The Fatar Keybed feels nice. 4. The pitch and mod wheel feel a bit out dated. The pitch wheel on mine is very noisy and has a noticeable resistant feel. It feels like a rusty spring. I also do not like that they do not light up like the other synths. Red lights on the wheels would of added a nice vibe to playing this.5. The knobs feel very smooth aside from the fine tune knobs, they have quite a bit of resistances, they almost feels like a dirty pot. I also found this on the envelope pot in the aux section. But I believe it was intentional due to the face they snap in at 12 o’clock. 6. The slob knob really makes it drift nicely. 7. The DCO are not bad.8. The filter is a bit tiny, brassy. A little bit of stepping. 9. There is no editor included with this. I hate that I have to pay for a 3rd party sound editor/vst software so I can re organize the presets and utilize read more the step sequencer with more advanced techniques. Sequential instruments are of premium quality and premium price. I’m sure it would of not hurt to have some sort of editor that would allow you to organize your patches. They get lost in the menu all the time. 10. Created patches from scratch is pretty easy and the modulation section is easy to use. There are so many more features to explore with this synth. It’s a great tool for designing and creating inspirational sounds. Hope this helps
