I found the review interesting precisely because he chose to play devil's advocate.
I have never met an A6
in the flesh but let's be honest: with all the people screaming for new poly analogs and all the A6 fanboy ravings why was it discontinued?
Many people point to price and reliability, just as in Alesis' other folly the Fusion
. It wasn't that
expensive! Certainly alongside Voyager, Virus and now Kronos and Prophet 12 the price was reasonable.
Perhaps Alesis just wasn't up to the task of going high-end? All of their successes have been built on low-cost products.
Blah blah blah
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
