Dreadbox Nymphes Review - Affordable 6 Voice Analogue Poly Synth

"I've owned or used a lot of Dreadbox synthesizers, from the early incarnations of the Erebus when I spotted it in a modular synth shop and it blew my mind. I blame both Dreadbox and Jason from Signal Sounds for bankrupting me since then with my slide into Eurorack.

Anyway, I wasn't convinced about the Nymphes when I first saw it advertised, as the menu control seemed a bit confusing and the synth lacking some features. However, when I saw the price was 'just' £449, I decided to take the plunge, and I am glad I did.

Here's my take on the Dreadbox Nymphes. What its features are, its strengths, whether or not that menu system actually is a problem or not... and my general experience using it so far. All of it is entwined with some wee bits and pieces of sounds direct from the synth itself. Don't take my slagging of Americans too seriously... it's what you all deserve for regularly abusing me for my accent. :*
