Good sounding synth but has a lot going on

I don't use this much but it has some fantastic pad sounds. The interface is a bit daunting and the presets are a bit all over the place but there are good starting points. 4 oscillators gives you lots of runway for sound design too.

Needs Organisation!

I was absolutely blown away by how good this sounds. I'm still not the best at sound design, so many of the presets aren't really what suit me. Non the less, its sound and versatility is really impressive. My main issue is how presets are organised. You can't filter certain types of sounds such as keys or bass - you have to scroll through them all...

Cool synth with very playable, ready-to-go sounds.

I like Opal's straightforward user interface and can easily and quickly navigate around and get some great sounds. Especially funk synth basses! The matrix is essential in dialing in everything just right. I enjoyed this synth enough that I made a preset pack for it on I hope UA continues to release original synths that aren't emulations of existing products. Well done!

Modern classic

Moder but classic with very good options to modulate the nice (but not so many) presets

Very Good

It is an easy synth to understand. Creating new and interesting sounds can be achieved with a few parameters being changed. It has a rich and deep sound. It is a very good synth.

Was so happy they finally released this as a non exclusive for Spark. It’s a fantastic synth, combining analogue warmth from their built in plugins with wavetable capabilities, at the price, it’s a great buy.

It's Okay

This is an okay synth. Nothing really ground breaking here. The sound is good but the interface doesn't really live up to modern standards. Modulation is done through a matrix rather than drag and drop, there is no MIDI learn functionality, UI is non re-scalable, the ensemble option only includes two voices with no ability to modify the stereo spectrum. If you compare this to Serum it pales. What I like about it is the filter morphing and the decent sounding oscillators. This is simply okay overall. I was expecting something great from UAD.
