Still, I've always been very happy with the sound/features/price (stacked fx on k station and xio )so no regrets there. Are the BS2 knobs the kind that pull off?
I'm really happy with the direction that the vendors have been moving in regarding size. One could very easily set two or three of these new mono synths side by side and have a huge/tweakable sonic pallet within ergonomic reach. Plus being able to just zone out with one and not be nailed to the 'studio'.And obviously if a larger/ better set of keys is required just set a controller underneath.
Are you planning on getting the sub phatty as well, or maybe a different mono? .. Maybe I should have titled the thread mono y mono y mono et all there really are so many options out right now, each with merit.
..meatballfulton:.that seems like a fair summary, im thinking about checking the manuals for modulation differences, but it may be hair splitting... sub phatty for eight hundred, on sale or eBay/Craig's list?

You are absolutely wrong , novation is built from Hard plastic and all it's knobs are mounted to the chassis and have a good bit of resistance in them so no woobly knobs here , the sub fatty knobs (especially selectors ) felt very cheap for me. Also novation is half the price with probably twice as much features !

I totally agree, I would never comment without having heard someone who knew what he was doing play it too. Hence if you'd read my post you would have seen I wrote that I tested them all with probably the most knowledgeable man I've ever met.
He totally agreed and he explained the patch panel, demonstrated it and got some good sounds. It's just they were nothing special and in comparison to the Sub Phatty there was no question ... Have you played them side by side?
