Roland System 8 Plug-Out synth

Great Day To All!

I've been researching for something more in the synth realm - Moog/DSI and other sounds, which has led to the Roland System 8 topping my list. I love my Yamaha MoX6 for piano and string sounds.

Some of the other things I've looked into and demo'd if possible are Behringer Deep Mind, Korg Minilogue & Monologue, King Korg, Novations, Nords, Rolands, Moog & DSI etc

Let me STRESS that I do very little editing and customizing patches. Had a Blofeld, didn't like it al all. . For a little over 1k, the System 8 offers ease of use, immediacy and fun, variety of sounds and synths counting the plug-outs.

Pros:
Plug-Outs + system 8 itself.
Ease of use
Tactile
Fun
Inspiration

Cons:
Polyphony is 8
Price
Prefer 61 over 49 keys

Thanks for any thoughts! :D

My post was feeling really lonely. 90 views, not a comment. :(

I bought a KingKORG instead of a System 8.
