Deep Dive on UNO Synth Pro

CDM: “This is a surprising little beast with features like real-analog overdrive!”

In the first of a 2-part series, CDM takes a deep look at IK's UNO Synth Pro, which can create nearly any analog synth sound you can imagine. The review gives some background on the development of the synth and discusses how its components and features facilitate sound design.

Here are quotes and a link to the full review below:

Don't overlook the UNO Synth Pro. This digital-analog hybrid synth is accessible and full of character.

Now on discount, though, the smaller desktop model is about as affordable as a full-featured hardware synth will get.


"The UNO line I think has been widely misunderstood as it came in at an entry-level price point and looks so accessible. But it's got serious synth roots as its lineage.

"Two filters: soundmachines' OTA filter (think Juno/Jupiter), plus Dave Rossum's SSI filter. Together, that covers two dozen analog filter possibilities, and you can use it with CV and external input

This thing gets really dirty – especially once you start to combine those three oscillators with FM and ring mod, add overdrive, and generally go wild with modulation.

The Fatar keyboard is definitely the one you want as a keyboardist.

That being said, I adore the Desktop as a portable effects unit, modular accessory, and portable sound-design tool.
