The fantasy is always better than the real thing. Or is it? I’ve been waiting for my Pulsar-23 for months and it arrived yesterday. I had this sound in my head after playing with my Mutable case, but the real thing felt dull, uncomfortable, and sonically cramped at a first patch. The 23 is nothing like a conventional drum machine and shouldn’t be treated as such. Then it came to life :). Also features the Lyra-8 synthesizer.
