When Sequential introduced the Take 5® compact poly synth this August, it met with immediate and overwhelming success, making 2021 another banner year for Sequential. And now, as if to usher its auspicious debut year out in style, the readers of influential music website MusicRadar have just crowned the Take 5 Best Hardware Synth of 2021. This is no small feat in a year filled with new synth introductions from companies large and small.
The Take 5 has received acclaim for its winning formula of great sound, powerful sound-shaping capabilities, and portability and was designed with both synth newcomers and space-conscious pros in mind. It sports two VCOs and a sub oscillator per voice, a classic 4-pole, resonant analog filter from the Prophet-5 Rev 4 design, 44 full-size keys, and a premium Fatar keybed. Its clever key-split feature gives players access to a wider playable range than many other compact synths by enabling players to divide the 3.5 octave keyboard into two separate performance zones. Dual Digital effects and a dedicated overdrive, continuously variable wave shaping, and front-panel access to analog FM ensure the Take 5 can cover a wide range of sonic territory, from vintage to modern.
