When I first saw the GUI I knew that this thing was going to be trip down memory lane. I owned a Korg Mono Poly for over 30 years. The fat analog sounds in this remind me of the Mono Poly. Back in the day we used to use Setting Charts and enter the number setting of each knob onto the chart. This is how you saved each preset you came up with. Now all you have to do is type in a name for the preset and hit enter. The added TMT and FX modules section is just icing on the cake. Dirk you and the Brainworx team should be very proud of this one. I can't wait to start making presets for it. Great Job ...

I could get into the technicalities of why Knifonium is ground breaking with it's tube emulation and tons of effects, tones, crazy wild not from this planet sounds! I could but how bout it's just a lot of fun! Just over the top fun!! Thanks much Plugin Alliance!!
This is a true master piece... So good, so inspiring... A must have. Thanks PA for the job (and for the deal!...)
A nice saturated 2 Osc analog model with it's own saturated character. Surprisingly missing any other note assignment priority (Lowest/Last/Highest) Currently fixed at highest as the original unit - which is bizarre as thats the mode I want least, still another sonic knife for the analog modelling drawer. Also I'd compare the ENV more to Oberheim than Moog - they're not as fast as my Moog Voyager. The onboard FX are handy for live use but e.g. an dedicated reverb sounds much richer than that included.

This one is a revolutionary addition to my arsenal from the first sight. Usually, soft synths are genre-specific, but this is not! 10/10
Nice addition to my synth library

I thought I have everything. I love Serum, I love Oberhausen and couple more VST instruments, but this one is another kind of gritty dirty bitch! Huge basses, amazing pads, I just cant stop playing with it - this one is certainly my new favorite! And what is best, as loyal customer, I got such a wonderful price that it was almost for free ;)
The sound and character of this synth are absolutely amazing! Thank you Brainworx and Knif Audio!

Not heard, nor tested the hardware yet so my opinion goes directly on the plugin. The sound of this synth is wide and big with deep bass and lot of details from mid to top. Super user friendly and contains a lot of tricks to make your sound original. However, for users working with an older system (MacPro 5.1 - 12core in my case), the CPU will increase drastically when opening the Release from the Envelopes to create sounds with longer tails like pads, drones or textures, but this is common with a lot of new technology nowadays for users with older systems. Guess this will work smoother with the next updates like PA did with all their other products successfully. incredible job for the engineer making this hardware and PA again for the ease !
