CHARLES ON THE SYN-2: “The SYN-2 ties into the way I work in film/tv/game music really well. The variety of tones, and Midi switching on a device that sounds and feels like traditional tube amp is a BIG deal. I’m happy to use impulse responses now and then for speaker simulation, but this has brought back much of the fun and inspiration to my recording workflow. Nicely done!”
