One Polysynth Module. But which?!


#41

Sorry I meant the PC4. Even so I think it’d be a similar issue - it’s just a sea of identical knobs.

Perhaps you could change some knob caps for some kind of visual cue I suppose.

The 30 stored setups and more particularly 30 stored shortcuts is very nice. for quickly moving around.

Another vote for the Peak. I’m hoping to pick up a DeepMind soon and from what I’ve read and heard is sound like a sweet poly. And around half the price of the peak if that’s an issue. Maybe other folks have both and can make a comparison?

I tried a Deepmind but I didn’t have a very good first impression of the UI and build quality. I’ve heard some really nice sounds from it, but I think I was expecting it to sound and work more like a Juno than it did (I am aware that it can sound pretty similar). I find the Peak interface much easier to use and the synthesis/modulation is more powerful. The effects sound a lot better on the Peak as well. The DM12 module is undeniably great value though. I’ve seen them for £544. Hell of a lot of synth for the money.

Yeah the Peak is a fantastic instrument and that reverb sounds amazing. The Summit looks cool too! Although it’s not in the mix for this discussion. I’d heard that the FX on the DM were pretty good to the point people were saying they want an audio in to make full advantage of them. I guess the build quality is reflected in the prices of the two.

Prophet 6 and OB-6 have been mentioned a few times. The OB-6 is the best sounding synth I’ve ever owned. It’s a dream to play, and very immediate.


#47

Well after much investigation, I’m not interested in any of them. So I’ve just ordered another monosynth instead. Pittsburgh Microvolt 3900 incoming!


#48

I would recommend to keep the Blofeld for rich and evolving pads. The Microvolt will add many new tones to your setup.


#49

The GR-1 sounds amazing. But how much of it is a computer at this point?

I’m not sure I understand the question.
Hopefully you can find what you need over at the Tasty Chips forum - https://tastychips.nl/vanilla/

this guy gets it.

with those requirements, my list would start and end with OB6. goosebumps the first time I heard it; in YouTube videos, no less. and it’s grown on me even more since I got it.
