    These are the joints I'm trying to decide on...

    No store has them in stock around here so I need some demo's which are hard to find...

    I really want some video's tho

    I found this site with some for the Virus

    It really depends on what kinda of sound you are looking for, if you just want General purpose stuff, I would pick the Nord or Access over the Andromeda. Andromeda is a true analog synth but its more of its own thing, it doesnt emulate anything in particular (ie Minimoog, Prophet V, Oberhiem synths, 303, arp 2600 etc)

    ^ the virus has its own sound, and to be honest i dont think anyone would be using it to its full potential here especially in hiphop

    So do Fantom and Motif's....Virus TI has emulated a moog filter... So it really depends on what sound you are looking for

    why do I need to trust you? I trust my own ears, played with it plenty, its a good synth, its not God's gift to synths lol. Bottom line is, for Phoenix, if you have the idea that you need a VA/Analog Synth, you most likely has some sounds in mind, and Some Songs to reference, and you need to ask the question, What synth will give me sounds close to this reference, Otherwise if you have to go based off raw features, the Andromeda has the best features on paper.

    im coming from the perspective of another genre really where the virus is king i dont see how it would be used in hiphop to full effect where other much cheaper synths would do the job just aswell

    Post it up

    Mano? Brooklyn Rapper? I couldn't find it on there...remember the link?


    I don't have any songs in mind I just want a good analog synth...I'll know it when I hear it...


    Word thats what I was leaning toward but I havent even heard enough of the others especially the Nord to just roll off off stats
