The Sweep Filter on Ultimate has been replaced for Digital Reverb on Equinoxe and Equinoxe also has the addition of a 4-Pole Moog Filter.
Performer and P80 look similar but are quite different under the hood. Performer is more geared towards live playing as P80 is more sequencer oriented but both contain classic analog sounds.
Professional and Trance-Pro are identical apart from Trance-Pro Oscillators are not smoothed at the peaks and product a brighter sound which makes them sound more digital and grainer which is perfect for Trance sounds.
Tarkus and Sirius are identical apart from the Filters. Tarkus has a State Variable Filter and Sirius has a 4-Pole Moog Filter. Again, both synths have lots of classic analog sounds but Sirius sounds like a Mini Moog but using a Korg MS2000 block diagram for the sound structure."
So does that mean Equinoxe and Ultimate can share patches, to some degree? (of course many patches probably wouldn't sound exactly as intended, but just because a patch doesn't sound as originally intended, doesn't mean it might not still sound good).
And same with Professional/Trance-Pro, and Tarkus/Sirius?
Just a thought...
