What happens if the mother 32 is played before it is warmed up?

Most analog synths, such as the Mother 32, need to warm up in order to stay in tune. You can play the synth right after you turn it on and you will not damage it in any way. It may not hold its pitch however, until the circuits have warmed up.

This is the reason why you shall not do it.

Geez... I wish they would've warned me about these possible dangers before I got it. I'm going to have to hook it up to my old Turbo Encabulator and see what happens...

That's almost as bad as dividing by Zero!

So Monolith01, what do you think of you brand new M32? And how does it behave when not warm yet?
