- What hardware are you selling?
- You already have an audio interface and sequencing software?
- Why are you replacing it with these old plugins? Quality has gone up, and there's much nicer stuff to be had.

I think that the Waldorf Edition is an excellent choice, and my favourite is the PPG Wave, it sounds very organic and crazy sometimes...the Attack is very nice too.

Software has very much to offer too...

I sold my JX-10, and I don't miss it.

Selling hardware for software is not a decision to be undertaken solely based on sound quality.

I would suggest you try the demos first, or even just buy the software - it's dirt cheap compared to the hardware. Better to be out a few hundred bucks and know what you want than let hardware go and regret it.

You can't go wrong on the Waldorf edition !
Attack is hands down one of the most flexible Drumsynths/grooveboxes around
(yes it also dose polyphonic synths too) =D>
D-pole is a great filter to add to an arsenal .
PPG wave is great for Retro digital , "rave" stabs ( did I just use that word [-X ) and the arpeggiator is very usefull

Both the instruments are multimbral : Attack 12 parts ,PPG 8 parts so you can relay make full productions with these alone ; also both lite on cpu and cheap ... what are you waiting for ?

Also if you miss the Q later the Waldorf Largo is a Q/blofeld http://www.waldorfmusic.de/en/products/largo
and has a demo http://demo.waldorfmusic.de/ however you do need a steinberg key for it to work :|

You don't actually need a physical dongle for it, the eLicenser works on a per-computer system as well.

...even though it's a bit of a hassle having to fill out info & install the eLicenser system & "download" the demo key instead of just hitting download & installing...

Waldorf Edition is really nice. I have most everything else but like this stuff a lot.
Very low CPU useage. The PPG sounds very close to a PPG. Attack is nice. The price is extremely nice.

Try Novation's website. I think it is there. The Waldorf Edition was only licensed by Waldorf, if I remember right. I think Largo is Waldorf's first solo software project. Don't beat me if I am wrong, please! It's been awhile.
