8 sinewave generators for Oscillator 1 and the brilliant new Filter Control Section which allow sweeping and tweaking the discrete filter types in real time (as opposed to unreal?), set this NovaMusik-partnered Omega Series Synth apart from our beloved, standard issue Omega 8s. Clever switches in the Filter Control Section also contribute to the CODE's expressiveness via momentary control of assignable parameters, and full panel control—secluded behind veils of edit windows in the Omega—of the auto-triggering External Audio Input, jack you wholly into the synth's processing and punctuating power.

Thrown into the mix are the highly percussive Theriot ($139 sold separately) and fabulously versatile Cadix ($189 sold separately) banks.

Synths like the Prophet 6, OB6, Omega 8 and C.O.D.E. 8 sound about as good as I can imagine a synth sounding. Andromeda too, but I've read too many posts describing the problems that can besiege it. To me, any extra "vibe" you'd...

Poor man's version of a Yamaha CS-80?

...performance. Cue to 22:30 if you’re feeling impatient - THEN go back and watch the whole thing. The CODE-8 has blown me away in a few demos because it’s very capable of being it’s own thing. I’m sure the CS-80 filters are nice, but IIRC the beast doesn’t even respond to poly aftertouch...
