I’m assuming DSI REV2 desktop module as you haven’t mentioned anything about keys.
I have an AK & Rev2 key 16 voice. It really depends what you’re looking for. If sound quality is most important, Rev2 wipes the floor with the AK/A4/A4ii. Tried to port my favorite patch over to the AK in hopes of selling the Rev2 …
Sound quality isn’t necessarily the same as sound sculpting. Elektron p-locks+sequencer can take sounds wonderful places. Combined with sequencable FX, it’s somethign else. It’s really true, Elektron gear’s about the integration of sequencer & sounds … if you just need a sound module, the Rev2.
The AK sequencer is wonderful & I love how I can build layers on different tracks & still play over the top with any leftover voices I have. I LOATHE the Rev2 sequencer, easily my least favorite of any I’ve ever laid hands on. Painful to get a simple melody in & mine is a bit buggy. I don’t use it much for parameters — that’s kinda cool but with 3 envelopes, 4 LFOs & a crazy mod matrix, I haven’t needed to go that deep yet.
In the context of my current studio, I’d keep the Rev2 over the AK. It’s my main controller, lovely to play, & while not the sexiest sound, really solid in context of tracks. If I was forced to sell all my gear & go minimal, it’d be the AK+Monomachine.
If I could only have one piece of gear, it would be the MNM, even over my beloved Juno 106. You can complete whole tracks on just that box, not even counting.
Sorry to be so self-promoting on my 1st post but you can see/hear all this gear in action on my Instagram Jamuary2019 posts (@mkdvb1). Lots of MNM as I basically learned to use (& love) it during the month but there’s a fair bit of Rev2 all over & a couple AK jams. The A4/AK/A4ii sequencer will be better than the MNM one with the (HUGE) caveat that it can’t sequence external MIDI.
Hope that helps.
