Here are some of his key comments:
"You can touch it, it's real, and it's analogue"
"UNO is what you need, a safe buy and a great choice."
"There are some great design elements to make it accessible and some lovely sonic flourishes and hands-on performance tools to help you lift UNO's sound up a level"
"The thinking is that there is so much hands-on action, and the parameters are so cleverly accessible, that you will be synthesising in no time and saving your results."
"You get some big leads, some tearing leads and lots of great dynamics."
"[The Editor] is a cool piece of software that opens up the hardware and is a good way to get under UNO's skin a little more."
"The sequencer and arpeggiator are both excellent and you'll be programming riffs and holding chords for more tweakage, I also really like the addition of the performance effects, which add a completely new dimension."
Andy's final verdict was:
"Small in size big in sound, even bigger in terms of potential, UNO is a great synth for the money, You can take it anywhere, use it with anything and get really hands-on and creative with it. And all that for stupid money. Who said a few years back that analogue synths would be too costly to remake?"
