Re: Synth question.

There are a lot Of options. You could have one awesome synth that dies it all, or you could have lots of great synths that each do a different thing.

Re: Clavia Nord Lead (Rack) 2/2x/3

The Nord Lead 3 is said to have a completely different sound engine. The other Nord leads are supposed to sound better. They are all pretty easy to use.

Re: What to buy: Minimoog D or SE MidiMoog??

I'm not quite sure how different the midimOOg sounds compared to the Model d, even with tje moog ciruit boards. If you want the original Minimoog sound, get the original Minimoog.

Re: Novation D-Station

I'd say a fair price would be any where from $149-$299 You could also watch the prices of other novation station synths.

Re: [noob] Synth choice help

The xio is very easy to edit, but but you won't be Abel to "Play somthing over it" without using a looper pedal. Let me explain the disadvantages Of a looper pedal. First ther's the price; the cheapest one from boss is $189. Second of all, once you record a loop you can't edit it, with the exception...

Re: What should I do!! (drum machine, synthwize)

The KORG electribe was very easy to use and create beats with when I tried it out in the store. I don't really know that much about syncing other gear to it, but it seemed a decent synth/drum machine.

Re: xiosynth25 vs. alpha juno 2

I have a xio 25, and it's awesome. I do usually find my self wishing for more keys, but the sound is still great. If you want to hear the xiosynth, youtube has some good demos. The x station, k station, and the xio are built around the same sound engie. The xio is said to have more "gritty" sharper ...

Re: Which $1K analog mono to complement Pro-One?

What about a minimoog(If you can find it cheap enough), maybe a DSI Mono Evolver or a mopho keyboard. The moog source looks nice to, but as CfNorENa pointed out, it has no knobs. The multi-moog is another option as is the korg ms 10 or ms 20.

Re: help picking a synth

The radias has a 16 step sequencer. It is 4 parts Multitimbral, and seems to be a pretty good synth. The ion however, is also 4 parts multitimberal, but the KORG wins out for polyphony.

Re: MemoryMoog Vs. DSI Poly evolver

I tried that; I got some great results. It seemed that the P 0'8 won for vintage analog type sounds, but the evolver had more features(but less polyphony). Thanks for all the input :D

Re: MemoryMoog Vs. DSI Poly evolver

So the evolver is the more dependable one of the two. I am really wondering if 4 voices are better than 6?
By the way, how does the prophet 0'8 stack up against the evolver?
