Agree about Neutron and would throw in DeepMind as well.jacqueslacouth wrote: ↑Mon Sep 16, 2019 10:51 amThe Neutron is not expensive but it has a brilliant sound. It gives me what I was looking for in my first round with a fully modular system and it more than holds its own amongst the competition.
But maybe BONES mean more like standing up to the legacy synths. I think Behringer K-2 is meant to be MS20 clone, not idea if it holds up.
Roland do great sounding stuff - but don't think I saw one that really was made to be creative, for real.

Simple things like preview any slot that you are to overwrite - no, before you start making you own sounds, you need to write down patches that you don't want to loose, or the ones you can overwrite. I had Korg, Nordleads and Behringer that do that nicely.
Exploring a new synth I go in all directions - and it takes many memory slots to save intermediate stuff. Then I start just changing oscillator waveforms or modulations etc.
I just find myself on the Nordlead 2X all the time - brilliant thought out units. And about to dig deeper in Behringer DM6 and all the crossmodulations it offers.
When you find a special quirky sound to use - it inspires to musical stuff too. Most factory patches are drowned in reverb - where anything sounds huge - so getting rid of that first is a start for those synths that have built in effects. And chorus has to go as well, since everything sounds phat with chorus. Original core sounds is what interest me. Then you can start adding effects.
