I have to agree kelly even though analog is da shiznit. I still like
VA and D∗g∗t∗l. But I except them on there own basis. I would never buy
a insturment to mimick something else EG another synthesis format or a
guitar if you want a guitar sounds then buy a guitar if you want analog
synth sounds then buy them not VA.

I my get my ass verbally kicked for this but some of the d∗g∗t∗l and
VA stuff sounds good. Take the waldorf microwave, the roland D-50,yamaha
DX-7,access virus. All have there strong points in music
composition. But I will never ever buy something that says groove on the
case or is the name sake of past synths.

"F∗∗K D∗G∗t∗l the world belongs to the analog loyalist"<--- (saw it on a
T-Shirt Cool eh)
