What is your opinion of this product?
This is my type of synth. I'm very much into modular and the Medusa brings that modular feel to the desktop. It truly excels at making ambient soundscapes with it's Modulation Routing, Paraphonic Backbone, Six Oscillators and Grid/Sequencer/Keyboard Modulation Layout. Yet it will do so much more. The Analog section sounds absolutely fantastic while the digital section brings that extra element like wave tables. The analog filter has superb performance and has zero loss of the low end when reduced in all three modes. The resonance has a very high end and self oscillates easily. AMP section has very Snappy to long release DADSR Section. It's also nice to see some morphing between the wave shapes of the LFO's. I find myself doing very little menu diving with this synth. When I do, it's quick and easy to learn your way through the menu, letting me play more and program less. Having a lot of fun with my Medusa.
