Computer Music 9 out of 10

“Its look and sounds are lifted from the Magnus Harmonica Corporation’s reed organs of the 1950s. Magnus is all about mushy, muddy sounds that can also get nasty when the saturation is cranked up!”– Sound on Sound magazine

Tape-based loops of real percussion performances – now syncable to DAW tempo • Create your own 1950s-vintage beats and layer them with authentic rhythms.
‘A fun, versatile instrument exuding that trademark EII grit and punch” – Computer Music magazine review, January 2017
“Dripping in oxide… You can almost taste the wow, flutter and print-through as the recordings faithfully, if perversely, reproduce every blip, hiss and click… example patches like Shenai Drift show off its warmth admirable.
– Sound on Sound magazine

“This interesting, unique and great-sounding synth is now more flexible – and cheaper.” – Computer Music Magazine
“Lambda’s simple architecture has been enhanced by Rhythmic Robot to include the ability to mix all nine of its preset sounds and apply chorus and vibrato to each one individually, ADSR envelopes for the Ensemble layer and filter, and more. It also sounds very cool and is more versatile than it might appear.” – Computer Music magazine
