"The Origin has an unashamedly large, lush sound and quite unlike what you'd expect from software synths - and rightly so as this isn't a software synth. This is dedicated DSP, designed strictly for the creation of huge analogue-sounding synth patches. All the usual adjectives spring to mind: syrupy, smooth, fat, etc. In short, it sounds quite amazing, with a lot fo the "hybrid" patches screaming "Oberheim" to me. Plus, it really has a very hands-on synthesis engine thrown into the bargain- easy to program and edit, and lots of fun to use. "
