I would get a comfortable keybed that sends out accurate velocity points, and add an Oberheim MC3000d. http://matrixsynth.blogspot.com/2007/12/oberheim-mc3000d-midi-desktop.html It has 48 storable velocity curves, which are per zone, which there are 8 zones. It has chaining abilities, 1,000 + preset...

QWave and Solaris for recording. ProWave for live performance, and of course the Creamware B2003 through a hardware spring, and rotary cabinet.

Then perheps a better demo is needed. Don't get me wrong. I use a DSP driven QWave from John Bowen and love wavetable synthesis. I actually prefer Solaris as I can mix 2 pairs of Waldorf Oscillators, and as many CEM, Multi, and Sample Osc's as needed. I just hate to see a former giant of a synth dev...

I play synths and samplers 24/7, and have done so since I was 12 years old w/ my first keyboard,....the wind blown Magnus Organ. One can never have enough, but since few people other than Studio Electronics make analog synths anymore, it keeps from buying anything expensive, so I thought. I have dec...

I can use the envelopes to sustain or a pedal w/ dual CC assignments to 2 zones. I place both of my index fingers in the middle of ...
