At the end of 2019, I was looking for a nice mobile synth. Back then I used to travel a lot, mostly by train. My thought was, it would be nice to have a nice, little machine to noodle around with while sitting in the ICE. And so I bought an OP-1. It was expensive. But it was perfect for traveling and I cannot blame a synth for a global pandemic grounding all travel for 18 months.
There are so many hype cycles going on each and every day on the net. Most of the time it is about new synths. I tend to fall to these hypes, feeling an urge to buy synths immediately. Same happened when the Somy Lyra-8 came out. However I resisted – for a few months. Then I became weak and bought an used one. Was it worth the €550 used price (~$675)?
The Atmosphere Cloud Reverb is an AU effect for iOS. I bought it right after release for € 6,99 ($5,99) and loved it right away.
