I've only had it a week or so, so knob issues yet. I also know about 3-4 people that have them and haven't had any knob issues so perhaps it's one of those exaggerated internet claims. I dunno really.
Editing is actually pretty good. The matrix is logically laid out and the screen does a very good job of visualising the parameters you want to tweak. There are also a couple of VST editors out there although I'm still trying to find one that's right for me.
Considering the cost, I'd have to give it an 8-9 out of 10.
It does have an unusual sound, and in some ways it sounds a bit dark and boxy but then I realised it just has a different character than the other synths I have. I really like it having spent some time with it and the filters and FX (distortion particularly) are really nice.

Not really, I managed to get my hands on a demo model a few years ago and the knobs were really fucked up, not reacting or skipping. Really liked the sound of it though. Thanks for your reply anyways, my main concern was editing, but it doesn't seem to be much of a problem the way you said it.
When i had my blofeld man it worked like a charm, it was like turntablism moving al the knobs in a sound designers kind of way. It had a very tactile feel. Sold cuz i need extra doe but i'm going for a pulse 2 so i be back at it.

Supernova looks interesting, how does it sound? late 90s VA right?
had a blofeld but sold it, i found it tedious to edit, probably didnt give it enough of a chance.
