I have actually played this synthesizer. The screen is beautiful, the build quality is excellent. the synthesis is... WOW! The modular nature of this synth makes it unlike any other synth out there. You can actually add modules to your chain and wire them however you want right on the Origin's screen. It also has USB for easy editing and data transfer capabilities. The pads are so lush and warm and the bass is mean as can be. I love the arpeggiators on this! I made this sound exactly like a TB-303 and I was even making arpeggiators with beats in them. If Arturia has taught us just one thing it is that they know how to make some of the best soft synths on the planet. Now, they bring all of the best classic synths together in the Origin.
Great idea but too many bugs.
I really wanted this synth but I was very disapointed when I started using it. Loud pop noise when turned on and off, low output volumn, and there is a big problem with the poly circle mode making the Origin cut off long envelope release if the same note is played twice in a row. The idea is fantastic but way too many bugs. Even after 2 years of production this synth is not yet ready for the market. Arturia support is very slow or not at all. I am sorry to say that this one is going to be returned. What a shame.
