MusicRadar together with Future Music magazine has been taking a close look at UNO Synth and was impressed with its great sound, flexibility and highly usable presets. Here are some of the comments from Future Music editor, Si Truss:
"The filter is capable of some really aggressive rasps and squeals, and can add resonant bite without destroying the low end - great for acid-style basslines."
"The row of quick performance effects that sit above the keyboard are a nice touch."
"There’s an impressive amount of flexibility and the resulting tone is characterful with plenty of analogue weight. The filter is a highlight - pleasantly raspy with the resonance cranked, but warm and smooth reined in."
"The flexibility of UNO is shown off well by the 100 presets. These are arranged in banks of 10, covering classic bass and lead sounds, arp-friendly plucks, drones and sound effects."
"UNO can record automation for all synth parameters, which considerably adds to the power of the sequencer."
"UNO is an excellent-sounding, versatile analogue monosynth, and you do get a lot for your money. The presets offer a ton of highly usable sounds, and we could certainly see this becoming a go-to instrument for classic basses and leads. The arp and sequencer are great for inspiring ideas too."
Si's final verdict was:
"UNO is a great source of classic, punchy analogue sounds at a bargain price."
+ Versatile, weighty analogue sound.
+ Flexible arp, sequencer and scale mode.
+ Plenty of great sounding, highly usable presets.
UNO Synth receives a final score of 4.5 out of 5 stars
