Under the hood of Arturia Origin Sonic LAB

A great overview of the Arturia Origin that goes into very good detail.

And what great sounds it can provide, just watch the video, well that is if you like electro bass/trance sounds 🙂 of course

However, do remember this if you lift the lid on this beast you will soon realize that this is NOT a hardware synthesizer it is a computer softsynth disguised as a hardware synth. But even if we have a PC synth trying to be an analogue beast the fun bit is building new patches – dive deep in to that really nice vintage toolkit. You control the whole process through one one those big encoders with a push switch.  I also like the little design features such as the Yamaha filters look like knobs on a CS80.

In essence The Origin is a wonderful thing but it is  too digital for an analog fetishist and too analog for a sound experimentalist.
