The keyboard buttons on the bottom add a nice aesthetic and function. The black on black is interesting. I must admit, though, these buttons feel a little weak. We'll see just how long these plastic, tiny, fragile buttons last with regular use. My guess is not as long as if they had just used a regular old chunk of rubber like the Mother 32. But, hey, we'll see. Maybe they are made of some super experimental, adamantium-like substance making them indestructible. Time will tell.
Moog Finally Made A Smaller Modern Unit!
. . . And it could not have come soon enough! Placing my double synth mount for the DFAM and Mother on my lap was really starting to cut up my legs. So much jagged metal!
But, seriously, this is something 'more powerful' synths always seem to lack. You either have your gigantic, immovable and monolithic synths which are stationary, or we're looking at tinier synths when it comes to moving about (especially and speaking more towards analog. An electribe is not going to kill me to move room to room). This synth is lucky enough to boast both - portability and a punch. It was so pleasant the other day to simply remove it from the studio, plug in a solitary wire with some headphone and be jamming to a Moog sound while just watching TV.
Jumper Cables - Tricky, But Hot Damn!
Only way to get er done here though is going, what i think is, against factory advice is a roundabout way of shoving the test lead in.
