When WS-Sound announced the Trueno, an analogue and digital Synthesizer in a USB stick, my interest was great because this is a complete new concept for an instrument. The USB stick contains the analog & digital oscillators, analogue modulations (amplitude mod, pulse-width mod & filter FM) as well as the analog filter. Modulations such as the LFO & envelopes but also the digital effects are not on the stick but in the editor plugin for PC & Mac.

I had the chance to check out the Trueno Synthesizer in my setup. Here is a first look including a complete unboxing and some new designed patches. More sound demos and the final review will be available soon.
