I've had my SunSyn for about 4 months. I also own, a Virus TI, Moog Voyager, Poly Evolver, A6, Xbase 999 and a bunch of digital and analog effects.

This is luxury item synth, collectors item, etc. Most people buy Hondas, Toyotas or Chevy's, some buy Austin Martin. Same goes with synths. This is like the later of the two choices.

Though it's no more expensive than let's say Studio Electronics Omega series, Moog, A6, etc. It has it's own sound, so it's hard for people to get their head around it. It has a very unique filter system and original sound, kind of like how the Poly Evolver has it's own sound or the TB 303 has it's own sound or Moog, you get the drift. It's a SunSyn sound.

Among other things, I sample some of percussion sounds and create really interesting drum kits to play through my MPC.

Also run external sound sources through the synth, you can actually modulate a external sound source.

I created new patches from the presets and I must admit that the sounds are just fing out of this world fantastic. It's so fat, so powerful, so raw. You can taste it. And programming is so fast, you dial up a brand new sound in minutes... Only thing faster is the Moog, at least my corner of heaven.

A lot of people say it has really RAW sound. It does, it's got a real analogue timbre about all it's sounds. Not noisy, just raw electric power and original sound.

Some Q & A.

Is it as amazing as everyone says, yes. Does it stand out in mix? Yes. Do the presets suck? Yes. Do the audio samples on the Jomox web site suck? Yes. Is it easy to program? Yes It is capable of endless Unique sonic possibilities that have not yet been discovered? Yes for sure. Why keep mooging or 303-ing? Can it be your only Analogue Synth.. YES Can it be considered one of the best synths ever made. Yes for sure. Should you buy one. Yes!!! bite the bullet and buy one, you'll love. WE ALL DO!!!

hi to all SynSyn users and fas out there. i own my Sunsyn for 2 years now. At first i want to tell about the Multi mode. It works completely with but only if u have one midi port dedicated just for the SunSyn. if there is any other midi gear comunicating on the same port (even if its on diffrent channls) the multi mode will go crazy. i dunno y it is like that (it already worked like that with the older os)

Ok, now the sound: Its powerful and raw, u can hear the electrizity as if it would be a liquid flowing through that filters and ebvelopes. with the 2 digi oscis, u can do very soft sounds too, combined with that analogue envirement, this doesnt sound like Va at all, but a s soon as u bring those VCO's in, the Syn turns into a mighty and raw analogue machine, wich is perfectly able of produceing fat Bass and lead

All in all that thing ROX

response to other reviews: the sunsynth has plenty of depth, balls, and character. if factory presets and/or mp3 sound quality do not convey this, find a sunsynth to play and you will see...

wow, i just read that the analog modulation matrix takes up half the real estate on each voice card - ! it is indeed unprecedented that this kind of flexible modulation scheme is implemented with pure analog control voltages. this is what gives it some of the abilities of modular synths. however, you can save patches, play them polyphonically, and even multi-timbrally.

multi-mode DOES work in the current OS.

the sound is fantastic.

there are unimplemented features in the menus which are placeholders for future updates. this is probably what gives people the feeling that the sunsynth is 'incomplete.' however, it is quite complete without them, and easily one of the most powerful analog synthesizers ever produced. if future updates add more features, cool. but this never comes to mind while i am working with the synth.

props to jomox for staying dedicated to this labor of love long enough to achieve its fruition. it is a major achievement.

Two weeks ago I received my groovebox and I like it very much. My interest in electronic music dates back from the early fifties. In 1955 I started out with a Roland jx-4p synth and a ky-505 drummachine. Taking into account the prices of gear then en what you can buy now these days for the same money, things have made a tremendous leap forward.I love dicks and anything lowbudget and this little dick box triggers my creativity enormously. But I´ve got a question about the waveformlist on page 97 of the manual. Can anybody tell what they refer to? Are they part of the RPS-patterns, are they soundpatches that can be accessed? If yes, how? I appreciate any reply on this matter. To those who are uttering complaints about the groovebox I can only say this; technology nowadays offers unlimited possibilities but I don´t hear that being reflected in electronic music today. At the core the problem is peoples´ creativity or lack of it and that will always remain, no matter what technology arrives on this planet, now or in the future. For 199 euro I´m one very happy owner.
