Cost vs. Demand - that's the main reason I can surmise. AFAIK, the only synth to do this (and you probably remember the price tag) was the Q+. Fantastic synth, but it didn't exactly sell by the hundreds. damn when i'll have a job, that will be the first thing i will buy... i'm totally identified wi...

surely a Waldorf Q !!!!!! it can sound a good analog emulation if you know some tricks, and it can do lots of emulation of real instrument too (it can do some strings that seem sampled, choirs, flute, bells, church organs...)... it's the master of bass, majestick pads and strange FX, and the 32 step...

A great synth, but still in production. Thus, does it count as "vintage?"

probably the distortion it's amplifying too much the low level noise coming from your synth... try to rise the Threshold of the Gate Effect

I've never got any problem with my POD xt... if noise or feedback come out from it, i simply rise the gate threshold and there aren't noises anymore

I have the VK8m and am very happy with it, but I don't use it in the way you intend. It has the best Leslie sim in a box I could find when I bought it, and does have various amp modeling capabilities, including overdrive. It's definitely capable of some pretty ballsy Hammond sounds. You may want to...

I need something rack mountable or desktop... and under 1000 $
i'll be happy with B4 II if it was hardware

Roland VK-8m

I'm searching for a good hammond module capable of serious distorted B3 sounds. I'm not a jazz player, i want something that can cut through a really heavy distorted guitar wall... I've already tried the nord electro and its distortion it's too light for me... i'd like something like NI B4 II when y...

If it fits, I'll use it. I basically do two modes of playing synth: making patches, and making songs. Rarely at the same time, although sometimes I make my juno patches on the fly because it so quick and simple. I usually use my own sounds, but sometimes use presets with some quick adjustments. The...

usually i tend to play chord using half the note of the avaible poliphony... on my Q i play chords with max 8 note or 4 note if i use the unison feature... so i can use pad with long release... i really don't like how pads with short release sound.

for me a g2 will always have that clear cristalline nord sounds, no matter how much do you tweak it... the sounds of a synth doesn't depend only by the architecture of the synth, but also of many other things... Well, let's get scientific. Any sound can be analysed. If there is something particular...

Then simply buy more of 'm. Having 4 Micromods gives you more than the power a single full Nord Modular has ;). i need something compact, easy to set-up in a live rig, and instead goin for 4 micro modular, for me will be better an Nord Modular... but i don't have money for a Nord Modular anyway... ...

People who are fond of certain very programmable synths are very fond of implying that there is no core character to the sound, and that with a little skill one can give it the character of any synth in existence. That just ain't true, and there is some value to not having to program your a*s off t...
