NORD LEAD A1 VERSUS PROPHET 08 VERSUS DSI PRO 2

Post by Quai34 » Fri Jul 11, 2014 6:57 am

Hi,
My current set up is Nord Stage II, Roland D50, Yamaha TX802, Roland XV5080, Oberheim Matrix 1000, EMU Proteus 2000 and Nord lead 2X. I also have a nord C2 Organ...
I've always been dreaming of a Prophet sound but the new Nord A1 seems to be very appealing, your thought ?

Except for its envelopes being much faster, you already have 90% of the prophet 08 sound in your Matrix 1000. Of course, the Prophet 08 makes it much more accessible...

And you already have most of the Nord Lead A1 in your Lead 2X.

Ok, thanks a lot, so, I will give it up on nord A1, might see if I like the way I could tweak easily the Prophet 08 and if yes, it might be (must be, said my wife...) my last hardware purchase....and software as well, the only software I will buy on top of Cubase will be Midi quest sound quest and Band in a box...
Thanks again
Sincerely
