Testing Nonlinear Labs' C15 Prototype

I'm excited to be the first to test a prototype of Nonlinear Labs' new Instrument, the C15, for one whole week!
CEO Stephan Schmitt himself delivered it the other day. It has a complex architecture, but once you get used to it, you can realize FM, Physical Modelling, Subtractive Synthesis and more… and dial in some very expressive sounds…!
