I plan on using FL Studio as a sequencer with the MIDI-port that my SB Live! 5.1 offers. That'll work, right? Yeah, absolutely. I was just pointing out the Micron has a couple of appointments the Ion lacks. To some people it's important, to others less so. Thanks, i've been trying to find that answ...

Re: Looking to buy my first hardware synthesizer - need help

But i never really got that good of a look at the Alesis Ion, when i tried it out in the store it was situated in a very uncomfortable position, is it any good for "saw sounds รก la trance"?

Oh, and when looking at the videos of the Alesis Micron on youtube i can assume that the Alesis Ion is capable of everything the Micron is doing? Yes, except the Ion lacks reverb and a sequencer. Of course it has a much better control surface, a larger display, and an extra octave of keys. The Ion/...

micahjonhughes: Depends, they seem hard to find here in sweden, there are two JUNO-106's around from what i've seen. maybe i'm not diggin' deep enough. V301H: I'm very tempted by the ion, and i had a few of those thoughts aswell regarding the filters, only the waldorf blofeld seemed to be able to be...

Not the kind of answer i was looking for to be honest, i've read that list prior to making my post, but it doesnt really help me to choose a synthesizer as the ones i've listed are what i consider. Thank you michael stein for your comment, i ...
