a lot of my albums have used the Micron, it’s the "piano"of my synth world, indispensable, and capable of really unique sounds.
There's a lot I like about the Micron, but 'unique' woudn't be one of my praises. At least not in the sense that any other synth can't do something 'unique' if you tweak it enough. It does a good emulation of many old synth sounds, but it's all pretty safe stuff.
We all have different uses for synths, and to me, the Micron produces sounds that I can’t get anywhere else, otherwise, I wouldn’t say what I’ve said.
Those sliders, the filters, the actual sound of the whole thing is different.
I actually think it’s not very good at producing "bread and butter sounds" it’s too digital sounding, definitely not warm, it’s not a Moog bass machine or pad thing by any means.
What I find it excels at are really nasty heavy extremely digital "textures" I haven’t been able to get near these with anything else, my modular, keyboards, anything.
I call it "Tod" after Tod Dockstader, it sounds just like him.
