Music Composers Unite!
I'm looking at getting a new synthesizer to use in my compositions, my interests are in an instrument that can cover a lot of ground sonically. Specifically something that can do a decent job simulating my favorite analog synth sounds yet give me enough sonic flexibility to have complex and evolving soundscapes. Currently looking at the Nordwave, Alesis Andromeda A6, John Bowen Solaris and the Access Virus Ti2. Does anybody have any experience/advice regarding these instruments.
I have a Nord Modular for sale, which is a Nord synth that allows you to build patches using a computer interface. You can add various filters, do signal routing, audio effects, various envelopes and basically create a huge variety of synth sounds. There are also thousands of free patches available on the net for this synth. (I also have a Nord Modular Key version which I will always keep in my collection) These Nord Modulars can cover ANY sonic ground.
When I'm not in the mood for creating patches from scratch, I also have a Korg Z1, which I love. It comes with 2 banks of patches that can be easily tweaked and saved as new patches. I also love its X/Y controller pad.
Thanks for the response. The Korg Z1 is a pretty nice synth, I've seen it used in a few songs before and the xy pad is great. I'm looking for a keyboard synth at this stage, as I don't have anywhere to put a rack/desktop synth. Thankyou for letting me know about the Nord modular though, I hope you get a good price from it when its sold.
