Default what analog-type synths are you guys using?

I wanted to get feedback as to the different
analog-sytle synths you guys are using with
the 001.

Obviously, the virus is used in the "be there" demo. What sound source did the
NUNU loop come from Jon??

Any supernova users out there??
Nord-lead2??
Waldorf??
The brand new Andromeda from Alesis looks
like a monster, but with it's price tag looks
more like a demon ($3499 list).

Somewhere i saw info that a TDM version of
the virus is coming out. Maybe an RTAS version is out there as well. Thanks, for
your input, all. : )

Hi Haze!
i'm using nordlead1 and jp-8000.
the nordlead is not that good, i mean it has great boost and punchy sound, but the audio resolution itself (and not by numbers,by ears) is bad. i use it for basslines usually.
now the jp-8000 is an exelent machine.
it doesnt have many timbres (only 2), but the sound is great and the control options are very convinient. great synth!

i allso recomend to check out a non analog style machine and that is the yamaha FS1R.
this machine is something else i'm telling you.
it uses formant shaping synthesis, and you get sounds that youve never heard before.

hope that i gave you some usefull info.

Mook.

I just buy the Analog Synth sample CDs for my Emu Sampler. I've got some pretty awesome Minimoog and Arp samples.

Works for me...

I kind of regret getting rid of my Juno 106 and Prophet VS in hindsight, but I have no complaints about the analog sounds I get from my Kurzweil these days. I've always thought it would be cool to pick up an Oberheim OBX-a and a PPG Wave, but then you have to ask yourself, "do I really want the headaches almost certain to be associated with relics like those..?"

Well, no, you probably don't want the headaches, but just in case somebody does decide to look for older analog synths rather than the new stuff, here are a few resources:

For information on newsgroups, mailing lists, patch libraries, and other electronic music resources:
SynthZone www.synthzone.com

For information on a specific instrument or electronic music subject try the archives at:
Music Machines
http://www.hyperreal.com/music/machines

For a bit of history: www.synthmuseum.com
You can see a picture of my first synth, a Rhodes Chroma still in use with a midi retrofit and a Galaxy patch librarian:
http://www.synthmuseum.com/rhodes/rhochroma01.html

Phat City.

Thanks for all the info, guys. Keep the comments coming. I'm sure there are lots
of us that will be looking for new toys
once we pay off our 001s and Macs.

My 500 is great, and hopefully will be even
better when Digidesign's LE 5.01 optimizes
for the velocity engine. Bruce, what's the
latest on Direct connect and a possible virus
plug-in for LE?

Default Re: what analog-type synths are you guys using?

Virus is not going to be a host-based synth anytime soon. It will be a lot more powerful than anything currently available that is host-based.
Haven't heard that there are any plans in the future in that area with Virus, but host synths and host systems will continue to get better exponentially every year, so it wouldn't surprise me if it eventually happened.

Virus will require a TDM system with a MIX card because the algorithms draw their power from the SRAM DSP chips rather than the host. The reason this works so well and will allow the MIX system to act just like the Virus external synths is because they both use the same DSP chips. So you can control the Virus plug-in and its parameters with a Virus keyboard if you want, or exchange patches between them.
