So Bryce, are the OSC and Filter FM amount VCA's tuned accurately to make consistant polyphonic analog FM patches? Maybe a betatester knows. That would be incredible. The Andromeda is 16 parts multitimbral and it's pretty sweet. the kind of layering and splits you can do are as flexible as your imag...

(You don't have enough time in a life to explore all the possibilities of the A6.) That's one of the most beautiful things. I think all synths are infinite, but the Andromeda is infinite in almost all directions, feels like I'm floating in a sea of soundheaven when I program it. Thanks for the enve...

The most common mistake with the Andromeda that I've seen is not giving it a warm up before autotune. if you switch it on and auto tune it, it gets all kinds of problems, but if you let it warm up 15 minutes or so, then autotune, the rogue voices come into line unless it is a really faulty unit. The...

Some Andromeda's have manufacturing faults that need to be either repaired or replaced. If you buy new you can get them to repair or replace any defective unit, there is documentation on the various a6 lists that detail this, try electro-music's a6 forum. clicky envelopes can be adjusted with the en...

this sounds really great! I knew something like this was in the works but I won't say how I came to know ;) One major thing gets me from what I see now. Not multitimbral? I just don't get that, in this day that should be built in to all polysynths, particularly analog ones, as it can be useful to ha...

I use my own sounds programmed from scratch 99% of the time, the 1% is when I'm using a digital synth like a k5000 or a dx something or other. It was a conversation with Minime that really opened my eyes to why. He said that because he know his synths well, it is quicker for hi to program his sound ...
