It was fun for a day but eventually very limiting and doesn’t sound that good either. Skip it and save for something more worthwhile.

The Craft 2.0 provides an excellent intuitive interface for sound design on the go. It will satisfy the knob tweakers that like happy accidents as well as the intentional sound creator. Each knob has multi functions with excellent responsive feel. Despite what some have said online, the knobs actually feel like they are built very well. They are digital encoders so there is little resistance, which some folks may not like, but they are very predictable and feel like they will last. The sounds are simply amazing and inspiring. The keybed is responsive but I wish there was at least a complete octave instead of a scale. That is about the only draw back for me. Love the synth overall.
