there are a lot of virtual analogue synths out there, and i love them. they're great. but there's an edge, a drift, that comes with real analogue that you don't always find consistently with the virtual crowd.

i've been waiting for studio electronics to finally release the omega8, which always sounded like a pretty sweet deal.

but i happened upon news of this andromeda on alesis' site, and i am almost completely sold on it. take a look at it and tell me it doesn't appear to be everything that an analogue loving, knob fiddling, parameter tweaking synth fool isn't always looking for.

add to that the fact that it's 16voice, and REAL ANALOGUE to boot, and i'm done for.

i would rather have 2 oscillators of real analogue to 3 of the virtual variety (yes, i'm talking about you, supernova).

this really seems heaven sent.

i just hope that the price is easy to digest.

Comments About the Sounds:
the samples they have on the site (www.alesis.com) sound brutally analogue, which is something i always love.

(Thanks to fibonaccisomething for this info.)
and Alain Courchesne for the pic
