If the OP wants analog, the ESQ-1 has analog curtis filters

It is a 4 voice analog synth with different voice config and sequencer
It Can be 4 mono sounds on different midi channels as Well.
The esq-1 Can not do that however akais synth engine i rather small

The ESQ-1 can very well do that. Like I mentioned before....the ESQ-1 has 3 OSC per patch, each with their own ENV and a Filter ENV for all 3 at the end. It's an 8 voice polyphonic synth...so...layer 2 patches and you'll have a 4 Voice 6 OSC's each with their own ENV and 2 sets of Filter ENV's synth.

No, the ESQ-1 can't do what is being described here, which is having multitimbrality equal to the polyphony of the synth in question. The ESQ-1 has an interesting architecture and a versatile sound but 8 part multitimbral it is not.

I second the Vermona Perfourmer MKII -- It IS ABSOLUTELY a polysynth with four completely independent monosynths that can work together or stand alone in a multitude of ways. It is very much like the Oberheim 4-Voice. It's stereo and each monosyth can pan independently. You have two polyphonic modes, two duophonic modes and two monophonic or "unison" modes where all synths fire at once. While there is a master volume and a master relative tune, each of the four monosynths can be tuned independently. Each has it's own 24db low pass filter, each has it's own assignable LFO, each has it's own assignable ASDR envelopes that can modulate Amplitude, Filter Cutoff and/or pitch modulation (think THX for that last one)... It will do things the Oberheim SEMs wont do as well. Like FM or noise generation or independant glides, or aftertouch capabilities, etc. I too wanted a 4-voice but couldn't afford one, that's how I found and bought the Vermona. It's spendy but you won't be disappointed by the stability, build quality, versatility, extreme manual control and best of all, the sound.
