Good point, and thanks for the info, Blue Monster
And thinking of the Tetra (as Cerebral Infect mentioned) puts it more into perspective. My hope of them being analog was before I knew the price, though.
Also, I'd kinda like to clarify. I'm certainly no analog elitist (don't know if it seemed like it or not), I'm just thinking there's a good chance this range isn't for me. The units look awesome (in terms of appearance), are at a good price point, and will probably sound nice, but there's one big thing that keeps me from really being interested.
I personally am not a huge fan of digital synths that offer no features (synthesis/architecture-wise) over analog. If a digital synth has only the standard analog waveforms in a typical subtractive signal flow, I would rather just use an analog synth. I know what I just described is basically the concept of a VA, but many VAs feature more waveforms (sometimes many more) and other additional features.
So, I do like digital synths (I like having analog, digital, and hybrid synths for a wide variety of sounds and features), but nowadays, I'd probably only buy a digital synth if it's a (dynamic) wavetable synth, or at least has a good amount of waves, or is unique in some way. I have a couple of VAs right now, which have some additional features, and like them, but am not 100% sure if I'll keep them.
I don't think the synths in this line are bad at all, they actually seem like they could be kinda cool, just not my style (at the moment, at least).
(Damn. Long, maybe not entirely relevant post - sorry. Heh)
