So I bought this instead



Nice choice! Always wanted one of those. Ended up settling for an X-Station because I couldn't afford the silly prices they go for on eBay.

for me a hardware synth must have audio in for routing and feed pack loops. The distortion and filters are what make hardware standout and you might as well use that as much as you can.

I just bought a Kyma system and a kemper II. I will admit the nord G1 G2 and mini are for fucking about and learning and have no actual use for me other than when I experiment or learn.

Realtor essentially destroys the nord modular but the workflow is so much better.

Back to no action, they have lots of synths that are great for so cheap. The ultranova 2 took a huge dip in price by the meow Nova but who wants a plastic looking midi controller when you can have the 6 unit rack that was a switch hitter for the trance synth trifecta .

I bought a Supernova 2 last year but had to sell it when the new baby arrived. I got the Nova instead as it fits on the desktop and it's more or less the same thing with less polyphony and a couple of less outputs. I didn't realise how well built they were. I love the older Novation sound too. The new stuff is shite.

Incidentally the Nova desktops are dirt cheap over here compared to the rack models (less than 200 usually).

I'm harassing Novation right now to make a more up to date digital synth like the Nova, keeping the connectivity but also adding USB and DAW integration.

Because they'll listen, of course

I really don't get the 'if it ain't analogue it's shit' mentality.

The microbrute is fine, but I sold mine because in the finite space I have it doesn't do enough to warrant keeping. I paid almost exactly the same for the Nova as I sold the MB for and instead of a basic analogue mono synth I have a 16 voice, 6 ouput multi timbral VA with separate FX per part and all sorts of extra bells and whistles. It suits my setup better than the MB.

I will be adding an analog 4 next, which also suits me just fine!


Oh for sure. I was half joking, but as usual my humour doesn't translate well over the net.

I'm certainly not an analogue purist by any stretch, I appreciate the strengths both analogue and digital systems have, but I honestly don't like the tone of the nova/supernova synths that much personally, and I'm not really a big fan of supersaw-like stuff in general either. Actually the only hardware VA's that have been of any interest to me have been the Nord modulars and much like L4C, the Kyma system is about the only other digital hardware I'd like to get my hands on down the track. But at this point I'm pretty content using the computer for most digital based applications. Horses for coarses and all that...

To me, the Microbrute comes into its own when you take it for a single voice as part of a larger analogue/cv based system, really useful. I also love the oscillator and the Steiner-Parker bandpass, it's a fuckin jammin filter, but I can see how it's not gonna be for everyone, particularly if it's just used as a stand-alone monosynth.

I liked his desk he had . The Euphonix is ok and i understand that the digital consoles worth getting look to clunky and given he isn't tracking, a 8816 summing mixer as the source for the euphonic would be so over the top but awesome.

I love my ipads. Used to have 1 euphonic artist and 2 euphonic mix and i always have my piano in front and i never figured out my flip / piano / desk desk.

the nords modulars are great because they have inputs. So thing about the 3 stereo outs and 1 stereo in of each and how you can fuck shit up. The Kyma is new so not really that knowledgeable.

And I also run everything thru a digital patch bay so ya, you can prety much route anything anywere.

The evolver has a great distortion filter and is worth getting just for the input.
Same goes for the pulse +

You nailed it here. By itself it's very, very nice in a few select situation. The filter in particular is awesome.

In my limited setup (I have to have everything on one desk for now) it's not really worth keeping. I'd do much better with an Analog 4 as it does more in less space.

LOL, i guess you've missed my SIGMA, remember i had an 8816, sold it for x-desks which last year have been upgraded to SIGMA.
I'm tracking my synths
got 64 AD inputs summed to 16 SIGMA stereo inputs/subgroups
the Avids control the SIGMA and Cubase.

now all is working again and little side projects like TA Colours are out of the way, I need to get back to producing again.
Have a few collabs lined up. Nice remixpack from Caleb as well which I'm going to play with. So more play besides work.

There's a fine line between accumulating gear and using gear
