Anonymous's review - Novation XioSynth 25

See the site of innovation. Basically it's an analog emulation, but a polyphonic way.


Touching a little cheap, it seems fragile.

Programming is still complex when you want to create a patch a little complicated is the problem of sub menus. Some functions are not well thought out, kind ENV AMOUNT and envelope control is not controllable at the same time, there has to juggle between two lines based on the 12 knobs ...

No MIDI in, damage.

No dedicated volume knob for the synth and sound from the pc. The volume knob controls the two simultaneously. It's not very flexible once live ...


Used for 6 months. The sound is really nice, compared to the filter really works and well thought out! All at a particular color and complements my virus B.

Value / price really good. His only real problem is the fragility of all, especially the knobs that toast super fast. The same in version "Pro" (ie ROBUST) would be wonderful ...

Finally at this price, you can change it every 2 years :-)

In short, I am impressed with this synth really well designed, that makes you want to play with sound, its true strength!
