Review Analog Factory Experience

The Arturia Experience

Arturia has been showing more and more interest in software/hardware solutions, as can be seen with some of their top of the line projects, such as Origin. The editor also offers a more affordable solution with Analog Factory Experience (AFE), combining v2.0 of its Analog Factory and a keyboard controller made by CME. Let’s see what this tempting bundle has to offer... read more…

AlexSpirit's review

By AlexSpirit, 27/03/2011
For how long have you been using it?
I received a few days ago. Very nice keyboard, I was surprised by its weight and solid feel it gives off.
Installing drivers and software without problem on a Mac Pro running under Snow Leopard.
Is to use it spoils ....

Did you try many other models before getting this one?
I have not tried this kind of model. I have a microkorg and other keyboards of this type, I was looking for vintage sounds and electronica. Here I have used ...

What is so special that you like best?
The keyboard hardware

What is so special that you like least?
And that's where everything goes wrong!
This keyboard is simply unusable! The last review date of 2009, the bugs I encounter (and I'm not alone, go have a look on the forum Arturia!) Does not exist at that time.
I plug my USB keyboard into the Mac Pro (not through a hub, but directly on the Mac Pro): The keyboard cancels all USB ports on my machine unusable my external hard drives or my other devices connected. I have to restart several times to regain full functionality of my computer!
The keyboard itself is not recognized. Absolutely nothing! When I plug it, it flashes and nothing else.

Another problem: The Minimoog presets do not work when the software is used in VST or AU. "It's normal," said Arturia. "Some users have the same concern, we are working on a pseudo-fix." Since the time, there was still nothing in sight!

The value of the product was to have the software presets directly configured on the physical keyboard, but that does not work.

You will find the best of reasons, saying: "Yes, but you've bought used, the keyboard may be defective!"
The technical forum on Arturia website is full of similar stories with these same problems.
The answer Arturia: Radio Silence! Nothing, not help or fix the bug they reported being more than 6 months.

What is your opinion about the value for the price?
Before, I thought the great price, limited bit expensive for the features.
I understand better today: It's very expensive for something that is only half!

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
Certainly not!
Arturia Flee! I was thinking of buying Spark, due out in the middle of the year, I made a cross on it, and I ordered Maschine Native Instruments.
I can understand that a product has bugs, because of his youth. But a mark not care less about its customers in turning a deaf ear in this way is unacceptable!

Paranomix39's review

By Paranomix39, 04/02/2011
I bought 4 months ago
J am satisfied with the sounds that sound very nice quality and very diverse
on the other hand it does not control the program change and ac c is a very big problem for me (especially if like me you use Live with instrument rack if you put eg 8 times vst in your rack and you let n light that one of the 8 s paves the CPU co uille ..)
And the problem with bank Minimoog works when it wants.
Rule after it if I say these 2 problems
Very good VST


L.M.S.A's review

By L.M.S.A, 27/10/2009
I come to acquire the bte and I am generally satisfied.
Being used to the hard and especially soft synth, the synth sounds great, there's plenty to do in great style.
* What I like most:
Well, the bank provided
- The big sound
- FINISHED MIDI settings (the button is paramtrs on each preset (time to win that is great)
* What I like least:
-No arpgiateur, yet there are sounds ARPG!?
- I contradict myself but also to change the functions of knobs
SETTING-synth too limitbr /> In conclusion, I find this excellent package, there are some dfaults but having the habit of taking too hard seat and soft t put that much for not much better, c is an excellent nine qualitprix a 250 it's worth it. C and above is great to browse all the synths in his favorite sequencer with a single hardware interface and no rglage.

edit: after 4 months of use the keyboard part in customer service because the button to go up the octaves and change preset died
