Recently added a Prophet 6 to my list of analogs. I actually sold my Virus Snow a few months back -- I always liked the sound, but actually working with it annoyed me and I felt like soft synths had...

Korg Minilogue XDm

Recently added a Korg Minilogue XDm to my setup. I didn't want to waste space on a tiny keyboard with slim keys (referring to the keyboard version versus the desktop module), I'd rather have a...

Gear update

Analog polys are pretty much the heart of my modest studio these days. I started getting more and more into the vintage analog sound and gravitating away from any major investment in VA synths for...

Sequential Prophet Rev 2 - 16 voice

This keyboard has surpassed all expectations of a modern (or even a vintage) synth for me.

I still love digital synths, am a big fan of VA and still have my Virus Snow. I've posted recently about...

Judging from pics it looks like the 49key version has about 7" of free space on both sides. My 61 key has about 7" on the left and 13" on the right... I...

For me, poly and unison aren't necessarily intertwined (except in the sense that more unison = less polyphony). Note-stealing is just one of my personal peeves I guess. If I want a release of a...

Although I won't come to any conclusions until I've seen a LOT more real-world reviews, I think the selling point of the Kyra is that FPGA offers a much more powerful synth.

For example, from the...
