Which Synth would you sell ?

Postby Venatt » 30 Dec 2018, 09:03

If you had the Alesis Andromeda A6 and the Moog Sub37 and had to sell one of them, which one would you let go of ?

The one you use and love less... they are so different instruments.

You’ll always be able to get another Moog.

A6 are rare.

Love my Subsequent 37 CV but now that I've bought an A1 I'm selling the Moog off (keeping a Minitaur though, gotta have ONE Moog for that classic sound!). It's a beautiful instrument with TONS of sound design features, but honestly, even the limited nature of the A1 has already rendered it collecting dust in the corner for my music (I found out I really love mad unison polyphonic bass lines over the clearer, but more limited monophonic synth stuff). Looks like you've got a Nord Lead 4 already, so you should know by now which of those two synths are more easily replaced by it to your ears and for your purposes.

I'm not familiar with the A6, but I've heard good things about it.

I agree with @maxpiano, pick the one you love actually making music with the most. Toss the other one. For me it's simple: I'm not a monosynth kind of guy, as much as I love the Moog, it's much more of a one-trick pony to me no matter how good that one trick is, so it goes.

I sold my NL4 along with three other keyboards to buy the Nord Stage 3 which has the A1 engine. But still have the Andromeda, a Moog Sub37, a DSI Mopho and a Mini Nova. Sometimes having to much keyboards takes away the concentration of getting all the juice out of one or two. I was about to sell my Andromeda for very good money but then I had second thoughts so I think I might sacrifice the Moog Sub37 because I need to buy a new Mac Book Pro, even though I might be getting rid off very good bass sounds which was like the main reason I bought the Sub37 for.

The Sub37 with no hesitation.
Keep the A6.
