Yes, probably, as there was only 1 character differing.
I would have said the same... I moderate it a bit in my mind just because I have also two (in fact three) other workhorses that I would place at the same level (notably from Xils, their PolyKB III and their Xils-4). So for me these three synths (Tal-Mod
, PolyKB III
) are those that I would never leave for all the gold of the world. And it is funny that in my mind the fourth that I would as well never leave for all the gold of the world is... TAL-U-NO-LX
, putting Xils and TAL at a perfect equality at the top of my favorites. I could hardly imagine my life of today without these four synths.
All the Korg KLC and VirtualCZ (wonderful for pads!) and the two major synths from DiscoDSP (Discovery Pro and Corona) come immediately behind. And (again from Xils) Oxium and miniSyn'X. And I don't forget all the collection of synths from Björn (Full Bucket Music) that I also very intensively use with their incredible professional quality.
All these synths above represent almost 90% of all the things I do with my software setup, notwithstanding all my quite big software collection. I could leave almost all my software collection but NEVER
the first four above.
And I also use four hardware synths (all are vintage, one of them is even an old paraphonic string-machine from 1981, a Moog Opus-3, which makes incredible pads), but it's another story...
