That would give you midi (watch out though, the SH2 gate needs more than 5V, but I think it should work with most of the interfaces - have not tried myself, I got a Doepfer one but never tried it, sequence it always from the 303 or Acidlab). And presets are really not necessary on such simple monosynths IMO...
pflosi wrote:Yeah I figured you meant memory... I used the SH2 live and had no problems whatsoever switching between different patches manually - should be easy once you know the synth well enough. You could of course also write down your patches and learn those you need live well - the manual has some example patches, unfortunately no empty patch sheet to print some empty copies out. Maybe you could make your own empty patch sheet out of one of those example patches. It's maybe old fashioned, but you'll get used to it and once you know the patches, it won't take much time to set them up without playing it at all.
Have also used the Mopho live, it is of course more convenient with memory in gig situations - but then again the Mopho architecture is much more complicated than the SH2 (and I tend to use it as polysynth live together with my T4). They surely complement each other nicely, so I don't advise you against buying it
