Some of them are, but not all of them. The Korg minilogue isn't really. The Andromeda was built from circuits inspired by classic, but isn't an exact clone. The Aturia Brute's are based off some newer stuff and older stuff, but, AFAIK, nobody has emulated the Steiner Parker Synthacon filter.

I dont think you will ever see that. Why would you? These days modern analogues dont cost much. And i mean they cost penies comparing how much Moogs, Prophets used to cost. Sure Moog does have moog price and prophet 6 isnt cheap. But come on Deep mind 6 cost cents for what you get. Imo it would be disrespectful even to make emulation of deep mind. :clown:

The only emulation that would be cool to see is Andromeda simply because its out of production. But realisticly would it stand out in todays market?

Add to that alot of modern analogues are reincarnations of older vintage analogues in one or another way so it doeant even make much sense to emulate.

I think Dagger has a Steiner Parker filter but not sure if it‘s similar...but still one of the most interesting filters for me in a soft synth.

And U-He Hive does emulate Sylenth1 :clown:

Talking about Hive the architectute is similar a bit to alesis Andromeda.

Not really. Repro-1 can do things Repro-5 can‘t.

Oh and maybe because of that the 12db filter in Dagger is called Brute12.
I think i read somewhere that the Minibrute use a Steiner parker filter as well.
So there is a modern AND old emulation...at least of a filter.
Indeed my favorite filter inside Dagger, powerful.
I also think VCV rack has one too.

Maybe there is a Roland JX3P emulation somewhere? How about Yamaha CS5 and the whole CS range? These are synths that at the time was not very sought after because they were affordable and many people owned them. For me it would be pure nostalgia to have those :D
Kind of off topic though.
UPS! Sorry mate. I didn't read it carefully enough I guess.

I'd be happy if there was a half-decent emulation of this:

However, with every passing year, cheaper (and smaller) hardware plus increasingly excellent software reduces my GAS for the tasty yet buggy Jomox SunSyn.

Agree. I haven't seen a single emulation of anything jomox-related. Strange as their drum machines (particularly the xbase888) sound better to my ears than any Roland drum machine ever did. From what I understand the founder of jomox got his start from modifying Roland drum machines for customers for a different sound.

I'd also love to see an Andromeda emulation. I'd easily pay $200 for one. That was such a cool synth.

Eh, but who am I kidding. Never gonna happen. And no, Syntronik or whatever that thing is doesn't count.

Oh come now, it is a synth powerhouse! :hihi:

I personally want to see the Maxibrute in software form, Arturia could make it import and export presets to the real thing. Seems right up their alley, but U-he would do it better probably.
