Pretty hard to know what you're looking for here?
You want the usual analog "hitlist" (sweeps, brass, strings) and you also don't care about the PPG-sound, so what makes you want a MW in the first place? You've also owned an xpander and liked it... so why not just get another? It's not that the MW can't do that stuff, but I would think that if you want any Waldorf gear in the first place, it's because of the wavetable modulation. Also, the interface TRULY sucks, even with the programmer.
An SQ80 would be a cheaper option with a better interface that will give you the same wavetable + filters sound, just without the wave scanning. It also can truly sound "old".
Do you even post on vse bro?
