Having been quite shocked by the very clear-cut and rather extravagant opinion of the user you quote, I transfered it to the topic of this new C15 by asking for clarifications on this device.
I quote here 2 replies from owner-users who seem to confirm that this device is quite innovative and versatile (I think that in view of the sophisticated technology of the C15 one can find happiness among the 4000 presets provided and the unlimited number of user presets that can be saved).
On the other hand, the lack of knowledge of something as basic as the operation of the wifi graphics editor suggests that there are significant gaps in the rest of the knowledge of this device and makes me doubt the validity of this overly radical and simplistic opinion.

The panel is ultra simple, and well described in the test. In use it is rather practical even if obviously a button for a function remains the best of the commands …
As far as the editor is concerned, you don’t need internet, you just need a wifi connection between the C15 and your computer, smatphone or tablet … This is also well described in the test
The answers to your questions are in the test:
- The sound territories are very varied, as demonstrated by the audio samples (here and elsewhere)
- The panel is very logically organized by modules, you can edit all the available parameters. You press the desired function and edit with the integrated screen. If the parameter is modulable, a contextual button becomes accessible, we press it and we assign the modulation we want, with the desired modulation quantities, nothing could be easier
- The graphical interface is an alternative method of editing via the synth panel. The synth generates an editor accessible with a PC/tablet/mobile phone in Wifi via a browser of your choice (you connect in Wifi to the synth, you type the address of the synth in the browser bar and hop to the graphic editor). It is the synth that generates the editor, not the PC/tablet/mobile, which only serves as a touch screen. So no risk as long as the PC/tablet/mobile has Wifi…
I think the guy either made a casting error or is not up to the task of the synthesis engine. He was unable to take advantage of the synth engine to create sounds that were varied or to his liking. Everything he blames on the synth was predictable before he bought it, he hasn’t discovered anything about the synth, just his own skill limitations. It’s like a CS80, it’s a musical instrument that you play, not a synth that you go plum plum on…
