Sound Quality
Good for any genre, but mostly geared towards the electronica field. I personally use it for more EBM-esque sounds. The Virus has a nice dark sound to it, which I like. Even happy leads and chors have a slighly evil and menacing feel to them. Effects are all pretty good, some of the distortions are interesting, but i dont really use em [eg Shaper]. Cool flangers, but often I do flanging in software[mainly on hits anyway]. Id like to eventually use it as an Effects Editor and the Vocoder. I guess my only complaint is that the osc. can sound a bit to thin. Obviously you detune 'em and turn unision on, but, I think its called aliasing?, was a bit of a problem from what I read before buying. And high end notes sound not the best. The Virus is optimal in mid to low end notes, in my opinion.
Reliability/Durability
Played with it live, and rawked the house. So crazy and fun to twiddle live. The thing is so damn heavy, I think its a German Tiger Tank reborn into Music! I'd hate to drop it on my foot, mainly cause my foot would break.
Price/Value
General Comments
The first day I got my Indigo, I played with it from ~7PM when I got out of class til 1AM...its so damn heavenly in any way - good or bad. The most evil, vicious, cutting 303 like leads or the most angelic and innocent pads..the indigo is a beast. If it were stolen/broken, Id probably cry. Well, not really, but Id be massively upset. Its the mainstay cannon in my studio, and a sexy center piece!
