Yeah, I love my CS50 but it has its drawbacks, not least its size and weight. I mean, it's a PITA even bringing it to another studio for recording so I tend to track it in my home studio. I'd hate to bring it on the road. No presets either which is a bummer for live. Also, I'm getting in to MIDI more and more. I guess the Volca Keys and to a lesser extent Silent Way, opened my eyes to how great that is, tweaking sequences live etc. I tended to play everything by hand before and then quantise ITB if needed. All my sequencing was done with VSTs.
So the 3P will be my gigging synth and pretty much my first MIDI capable synth too. I was never totally sold on the Roland sound before, but I've been using the TAL UNO-LX plugin a lot lately and it's been making it on to more and more of my songs. It's pretty close as far as VSTs go, the studio I do work in has a Juno 60 (no MIDI) but so far we've just used the UNO-LX as it approximates the sound well enough, especially when it's not a major player in the mix.
I'm actually really excited about my 3P though because it just sounds so damn versatile and quite beautiful too. But it can also cover the bread and butter sounds of the Juno pretty well itself so I feel like I'll be covering quite a lot of the ground I need covered with one synth.
Don't get me wrong, it'll never replace my CS50 (which I will never ever part with), but I've been wanting a little more variety tone wise lately and I'm convinced the 3P will give me that with more to spare.
Regarding digital... I dunno, I've never been that pushed on it tbh. Though I was considering a Mutable Ambika before I even thought about a 3P, and it was the idea of having a greater range of waveforms to choose from going through a nice analogue filter that drew me to it. I also thought about a DW series. So maybe a hybrid will be on the horizon next for me... It would have to be a module though, really. I'm gonna find it hard to fit in the 3P as it is!
Gear lust. It's a h**l of a drug.
