That's a paid review and a quote from a brochure.

The video I posted was a third party review well after the units began to ship.

I mean I know this forum gets a lot of people wanting the latest and greatest...

But some synths deserve a permanent home in anyone's studio and this synth is a sound designer's dream come true.

I've had mine almost a year now and I believe it's an instant classic.

And that's my own unbiased review after spending some time with it.

It deserves to stay in the limelight long after Korg and Roland have released and obsoleted a half dozen synths every year.

These guys and Behringer are the new kings of Analog and VA synths,

If I have to add anything negative to my review, it's that the Hydra is so much fun to program you end up never getting any work done. You can lose yourself for weeks in the permutations of waveforms and timbre. :cool: My only other complaint is that it's mono-timbral. :(

My main interest is industrial and alternative along the lines of NiN, Skinny Puppy, Front 242, etc... And this synth was summoned from the space lords in answer to my prayers... ;)

Interesting videos never the less.

The third party video you posted is a commercial organisation selling patches hence they have a vested interest in products that their patches will function with and they will probably receive the product FOC from the makers hence they have a vested interest in the product.


PMT are a huge chain of retail Music Stores here in the UK, the video and text is from their website but again their video will not be indeendent as PMT are in the business of selling kit.
