A few months down the road I’ll be looking to purchase a new synth, likely either the Matriarch or the Pro 3. The Pro 3 has been out for a while now and I’m sure a lot of people on this forum will have one or the other, or both of these. I’d be very interested to hear your preferences and the reasons why you prefer one over the other. And especially for those fortunates who do own both — which one do you take to the proverbial desert island (where there’s a generator waiting, thank god)?
(I’m not so much looking for a recommendation for me. I’m more interested in YOUR reasons. But I’ll state my tastes anyway: unlike a lot of people, it’s not “fat leads and basses” that attract me to a synth. I’m more turned on by old school sci-fi soundtracks and the early days of electro-acoustic experimentation. Sound design, interesting modulation. I’m sure both of these synths satisfy those itches.)
