Excerpt: Mobile music production involves less and less compromise as technology advances. We now routinely expect stunning sound quality and flexibility from kit that fits into your backpack – sometimes even your pocket. Even if you don’t make music on the road, smaller boxes are generally preferable to larger ones wherever possible, since few people have the luxury of working in large studio spaces.
Summary: A little too expensive to be the 'Virus for the masses', the TI Snow is still a truly great synth that will appeal to live performers and studio musicians alike.
Pros: Classy, sophisticated sound that works for many genres — it doesn't get much better than this!, The same synth engine as, and patch compatibility with, the more expensive TI models., Total Integration — now a mature and reliable system that you'll find hard to do without once you've experienced it., Ingenious, easy front-panel editing.
Cons: A bit pricey — not that much less than the TI Desktop and more than twice the cost of a Waldorf Blofeld., Clunky power adaptor that feels cumbersome on the road and precarious on stage.
