For me ACE, even with the wider sounds, still remains focused. The large sonic space found with other synths is not really found. And that's OK since there's quality in that, in not being all over the place. And then some processed parallel reverb can be added in mixing, to open up the sounds a bit.

I have a feeling that owning just one will grant you a pretty substantial discount. U-he is good to their customers like that.

I got them both at the same time, and would welcome BazAce.

I own both too and like both very much. The technical differences already have been explained. So I like to comment the sound.

BAZILLE is more digital (but veeeery good) sounding but can do warm lush and deep analog-like sounds as well as all the fun modular madness. It´s more versatile and complex.

ACE is really (relatively spreaking) full analogish sounding. I am reminded of a DOEPFER modular system. I own a small hardware DOEPFER unit myself and ACE is heading totally in that direction soundwise. It can be harsh and very metallic but always keeps its analog character. It´s a cool powerful tool with a limited complexity, what is a good thing for me. It has a completely different sound-character than BAZILLE. ACE is way less demanding on CPU without sacrifying sound-quality.

Get Both! :)

Id say dont compare as they are both must haves IMO. Pick up ACE first and then buy Bazille.

Still lust for Bazille! Will get it someday, it's an awesome synth (and maybe my last U-He wishlist item)

I would love a u-he synth that had the basic structure of ACE, with a bunch of added Bazille modules (quantizers, lag, rectifier etc) and the sound quality and character of RePro...
