Top 5 Synths everyone?


#1

Hey i just want to see where people stand with their favorite instruments in these 5 categories. From most important to least in my need. How about you guys?

  1. SOUND - Oberheim OBXa
  2. FUNCTIONALITY - Oberheim Matrix-12
  3. BASS - Roland Juno 60
  4. MONO - Moog Prodigy
  5. DIGITAL - Moog Animoog

I’ll only answer with the synths I own, since you can only judge them when you have access to them.

1. SOUND - OB6
2. FUNCTIONALITY - Solaris
3. BASS - Therapsid (honestly, it has that kick ass PWM thanks to SID).
4. MONO - MatrixBrute, it's huge.
5. DIGITAL - K5000S

For digital I discounted VA, Solaris has elements of VA and my System 8 is also VA. The K5000S is additive and a fairly unique digital as a result. Same with an FM synth.
