I am surprised I have not seen the V-Synth mentioned.
The intuitive interface may mislead you to believe that all of the editable parameters are what is in front of you, but holy cow is there a lot of stuff "under the hood" so to speak.

Does the Alesis Ion have patchccords??? impressive.

I always have been interested on the Ion, seems pretty similar to the command stations architecture: tons of filters , and a big amount of customization possibilities thanks to the patchcords.
His sex dungeons are rumored to hold hundreds of people in secret locations around the world.

I'm pretty sure it's all done in the digital domain onscreen without any patch cords.
bonne chance

Indeed. And Balma, don't even think of starting a trend calling a VA's mod matrix "virtual patch cords"... :mrgreen:

Speaking of KORG, I'd have to say the Radias was the deepest synth I ever bought. I first had an R3, and used the h**l out of it, and actually did do pretty much everything there was to do on the R3, then I bought the Radais... :D

Andromeda, Nord g2, or Spectralis. Not sure who the winner is there, but they can all get kind of confusing at times to me

Oh yes. Sometimes I feel like I need to get a degree in electrical and sound engineering to fully understand how Reaktor works under the hood. I gave up trying to learn it's intricacies awhile ago. Now, I just stick to the professional and community-made synths and modules :P

I here you . Took me way to long to create a drum synth . Like two weeks of head scratching for a 4 bar loop in the end .... ah progress
