To throw out the king korg because if you only want to record I'd just be using VST's instead of a hardware VA like the KK that requires you to menu dive to patch things because they didn't give it a VST editor despite having USB...

does nothing for me I'm afraid. I don't like the sound and I don't like the 'hack' of whacking an insipid sound through a Tube to 'warm it up'. Seems a*s-backwards to me somehow. Like polishing a turd.

They did a good job, nice to see they cut down on the cheese and made the demo more relevant to modern stuff too (could have done without the Jump patch demo tho which to be honest sounded nothing like the original sound anyway).
The Oberheim patch? That was Prince's "1999".

Calling that "cheesy c**p" probably shows how little you know about music.

Nah I looked it up. It's legitimately impossible to hate 1999. It's basically the perfect pop song.
