I do think it's best to listen as many demos as possible. That's a decent way to gage the synths limits and possibilities. That Cwejman track up there has been on the site for years. It's a great composition, but to me it's not so much the synth that's doing that, more so the person chopping up the cwejman audio bits and putting them together. Modulars are good for this type of music, but I wouldn't say that it's one type of modular that can do that. Cwejman is great and that's actually the demo I listened to several years ago that got me going on Cwejman. I could listen to it all day. I've been wanting to get the VM-1 for my modular to have some Cwejman sound.
I usually don't listen to the composition, but to the individual sound and try to hear it's bare sound.
