Ratings and Reviews
Attempted the upgrade n now my Craftsynth is a Vegetable. How does one reset/re-install the initial firmware that came on the synth. I read the manual n scoured the Modal Electronics side and cannot find how correct this situation. The Craftsynth now has four blinking lights, when I connect power, saying it's brainless.

Modal Craft - Crafty Goodness
If you have the Modal Craft Synth you know how valuable this program is. It gives a fine and direct visual guide to programming this wonderful new mono-synth. It also expands the number of patches well beyond the sixteen which are flashed into the Craftsynth's memory. This app allows access to two more full (sixteen) banks of lovely presets, bringing the total of factory patches to forty eight. It also allows for the user to create and store an unlimited number of their own sonic creations.
The synth alone is a whole lotta awesome, and with the use of the app the tones I have been able to coax out of it beggar belief. This is NOT simply a toy, but a legitimate synthesizer which is capable of producing some harmonically rich and harmonically pure sounds. The bass can go from subtle and soothing to bone-crushing terror. The pads are surprisingly dense and varied, and can be fairly intense as well. The noises - bubbly and blippy and quite alien. I think that my personal favorite so far is the new-age pan flutes which I brought forth - superbly satisfying. I could talk about oscillators and filters and lfo's and such, but that's what the specs sheets are for.
If you are on the fence about getting the Craftsynth kit, watch the videos and reviews on SonicState and others. They are spot on accurate and give a good picture of what this combo (synth/app) are capable of. Although there are some aspects of this which might be frustrating for those just getting into electronic instruments, namely connecting a wired controller to the synth while also using the ipad, but there is likely a simple work around. Regardless, for what you get here, Modal has done a terrific job of creating a brilliant little digital mono-synth for the masses. I hope that this is in fact the first of many such creations.
Thank you Modal. Keep up the out of the box thinking.
