DJ Mag on UNO Synth: "A wicked sounding analog synth"
“The UNO is a very capable synth that sits perfectly in any DJ/producer’s studio”
DJ Mag has been taking a close look at UNO Synth, courtesy of tech editor Mick Wilson. He was immediately impressed by its sound quality and programmability.
Here are some of his key comments:
“It’s a true analogue beast, and behind the all-plastic casing, there’s a true monster sound.”
“The sound – which is probably the most important factor – is incredibly good.”
“When fired up, the UNO sounds pretty impressive and covers a surprisingly large range of sounds with aplomb – the 100 presets do a good job in showcasing what the synth is all about, from deep dirty basses to gritty top leads.”
“Getting results is easy and quick, especially when using the cutoff knob – a standard go-to for instant sound-shaping gratification.”
“The fact that the editor can be used on iOS devices is great as the UNO can also be powered by batteries, making it a very compact and portable synth.”
“The keyboard can be used to program the built-in sequencer, in real-time or step-time modes. For something so small and compact we have to say the synth really is feature rich.”
Mick’s final verdict is:
“The UNO is a very capable synth that would sit perfectly in any DJ/producer’s studio – we highly recommend it for anyone looking for a cost-effective way to get into the world of hardware analogue synths.”
