Interesting that you mention the P'08, because I purchased one largely because it's one of the few "affordable" (I use the term reluctantly) new polyphonic synths. I don't hear aliasing, but I can make it distort and get some interesting overtones. The latter I don't mind nearly as much. ...

Slightly off topic, but I've yet to meet to meet a digital synth that can pass the "Winkels Test" (sort of like the Turing Test, but easier to replicate). What is the Winkels Test? Simple. Take a polyphonic synth. Set up a fairly harmonically rich sustaining patch with some detuning and m...

Re: More direct comparison between analog and digital

...Do not want to be tested by anybody btw Did you even listen to sample? If so, just tell us what synth played when please... Yes, I have listen. Found both samples good sounding. Hope it's O.K. to "all of us"? До скорого. А ...

Re: More direct comparison between analog and digital

...P.S. That Alesis is (was) cheap unit... If by cheap you meant inexpensive, agreed. Although its DSP driven sound engine is far from cheap sounding. Anyway, besides the still informative comment you made, I'm curious as to why you wouldn't take the challenge of answering the test? If the Ion is a...

I'd start with NovaMusik. http://www.novamusik.com Call them, don't order on the website. Their stock is never updated on the website. But they are very friendly people and very knowledgeable about synths. I've had nothing but good experiences with them. I second that suggestion. One of my friend b...

...In my experience, the difference between analog and digital is much more noticeable when you start sending lots of modulation around to different destinations, especially with things like audio-rate modulation sent to the filter cutoff. And high filter resonance never sounds quite the same on a ...

i had a really hard time hearing the difference between the two. I noticed a very slight difference, but not enough to distinguish which is which. plus i bombed the last test that psy did. LOL! Don't get discouraged by your earlier results. You have 1 chance in 2 to get it right again. But seriousl...

More direct comparison between analog and digital

Recently I've programmed a Taurus-like Bass sound on the Voyager. I've carefully reproduced the same patch on my Alesis Ion. In this audio sample, I manually play a short sequence of notes on one synth, then the same thing on the other synth. At the end I play one note on one synth, then the same no...

Hi there. I'll try to be as unbiased as I can. I think it's a good idea to sell these two for a voyager for a few logical reasons. First, the two Rolands have only one vco each so right away rich swirling timbres are almost impossible to get unless using some pwm and even then it won't match a 3 sli...

I totally agree with EricK on this.
