    Thanks Mario. I had heard someone on the Oberheim Matrix group talking about this.

    I really liked the Nord Modular. I almost bought my buddy's but in the end, I spent too much time making sounds and not enough making music. So, I gave it back and got a microKorg which I've been very happy with.

    I'm really excited to see the pricing on the G2. Anyone here at Messe this week?

    I hear ya, you can get lost in the sound design side if you overdo it, but then you just limit your options, lucky me, I'm not a keyboard player ;) (I am a programmer however so I have some synths in my studio) but I think synths like the modular are absolutely fascinating, I would love to get one and learn it inside out, that way I can get the results I want much faster and if I can't hey, there are over 4000 patches for the nord modular available for download....

    Hi Mario

    The brief time I spent on the Modular was synth programming Nirvana and Purgatory all in one. You could do _anything_ but then again, you _had to_!

    I think there were some decent "init voice" templates so if you wanted to make a certain kind of patch, you just start with what they had and go from there. Man, what a beast though! The hours spent patching this module to that, routing this control source here and there, scaling, inverting, etc. A very cool sound design tool.

    I remember some programming I used to do on my old Matrix-12, a very flexible synth for the time but WAY less sophisticated than the Nord. I was so pleased with myself that I could make a helicopter sound start in the left speaker, apply channel pressure and have it move from left to right with the rotor speed increasing to full in the center and decreasing to stop when it "landed" in the right speaker. Ah, the good old days!
