Origin Users
« on: September 29, 2010, 07:01:20 am »


Been watching youtube videos and reading various online forums about this machine. It seems like it would be a great piece to have but man the bugs seem crazy - especially in areas most viable to electronic music - sequencing, sound cut outs, midi, stuck notes, glitchy knobs.

Now seriously guys - you all seem to like your purchase, but would you buy it again even at its new 2K discount price - even though the product is pretty much in development stage.

2K still is alot to bank on a company still in development that could go belly up easily. I wouldnt say the internet reviews are all that good.

would like to hear everyones feedback, even the makers of arturia. Where will arturia be in 5 years?

I bought the Origin with FW 1.06 and was very disappointed by all the bugs. At this stage I definately wouldn't have bought it again.

Although there ae some minor bugs I am happy with 1.2.5. and would buy a new Origin, if mine is stolen. I really love the sound, the concept of programming and the features of the unit.

I really hope Arturia is keeping promises for additional modules (and fx) and VST-Integration in near future.

For me the same story as above, and now with OS 1.25 all problems are gone on my machine. YES! I would buy it again, it's one of the greatest synths (very cool look and incredible good sounding) and it can only get better  :)

I got mine at a discounted price, and I'm glad I did. I got in at v1.21, and haven't really been hit very hard by the bugs (strangely...). Fortunately, it will only get better from here with more fixes and features. I would not give up this synth - it's just so much fun and good sounding.

With the Origin, I was willing to "take a chance" to get something unique and support a small innovative company in the process. They sure contribute to make the synth market less boring.

More sentiments from users here.

i can say there are some bugs and they should work hard with the OS also i think will be one of the best synthesizers in the future if they no stop development.

MindPop,
 the last email we received from you back in June 2009 when we inquired about how your new Origin was working for you, was:
"My Origin rules, I am playing it now, writing a song with it"

Also, you posted on this forum in February 2010 to the question :Who owns an Origin?":
"I have one in Las Vegas NV USA and it rules. I have alot of fun with it."

Nothing else since then.
I am puzzled by your posts today.

Sean

Until they offer somekind of phone tech support, DO NOT BUY IT.  I have said before, it sounds AWESOME, but it is so buggy that you will spend alot of your time trying to get it to work as advertised.

The fact that you are experiencing an issue with the USB connection between Origin and your computer is not enough to say that is is "so buggy". We have been working for 2 years now to make it more and more stable and reliable, the 1.2.5 firmware is quite good, and the 1.3 which is about to be released is very clean and should never crash.

Your problem may be only a matter of USB ports, so it is possible that it has nothing to do with Origin. Anyway I can guarantee you that most Origin users do not have this problem and are able to connect to the Origin with Origin Connection. Now there's also the possibility that we have a bug that appears only in your particular computer configuration, and in this case we just have to discuss sensibly and we will resolve it.
But at least, instead of posting the same thing on tons of threads, you should answer to the question I asked you here:

Even if Arturia hadn't improved it past OS v 1.2.5, I would still have bought it.  Being able to combine elements of some of the most desired synthesizers in our history in a patchable modular instrument, and sounding so good that Bob Moog himself endorsed it - well, the Moog Modular V anyway, makes the Origin an indispensable part of any synthesist's arsenal.

Yes, I want more added to it.  I want the CS-80 template very much.  I want Arturia to make Prophet 5 modules for it, as well as Oberheim modules at some point.  But with an instrument this powerful, I've been able to make some convincing replacements with what Arturia gave me on board.  And jeepers, did I mention that it sound so good?   ;)
One day, I want my keyboard studio to be a synth museum like Hans Zimmer's

p.s.  PRAY FOR THIS PLANET!!

I also bought one second hand and I must say I have/had quite a few synths but I am really impressed, I love this synth.

I got mine in June of 2011 it's the only synth I have played since the day it arrived. And I have 13 other synths and a ton of plugins. I get lost in this synth hours at a time. Only bug I suffer from is backlight issues intermittently. Can't wait to see what new features they add hope they add oberheim sem that would be icing on the cake to this great synth.
