MusicTech on UNO Synth Pro

“Does it genuinely deserve professional billing? Very much so!”

MusicTech has published an in-depth review of IK's UNO Synth Pro, covering the analog synthesizer in all its aspects and giving it a choice award of 9 out of 10.

The review is a great read for anyone interested in how UNO Synth Pro operates and how well it performs. Below are the conclusions MusicTech makes with a link to the full review at the bottom.

"IK Multimedia has produced a hybrid analogue-digital synth that manages to blend tweakability with an ease of use and sonic quality that justifies the price for the desktop model, especially when the impressive interconnectivity is factored in."

This is a synth with tons of potential for exploration and growth in performance, composition and production.

"The keyboard version may cost more than 50% more, but if you need a high spec set of keys on top, then you'll be hard-pressed to match the deal, and it does make for a rather tasty instrument on its own.

"Both UNO Synth Pro models are well-thought-out instruments that effortlessly conjure an expansive range of sounds, from the essentials to the experimental, making the most of their analogue sonics and digital flexibility.

"For those users who outgrow the internal 256 preset slots or want to edit via USB, an editor/librarian app is in the pipeline for a Summer 2021 release."
