In theory??? What theory are you talking about???
well more accurately I should say
Nice sites, good review for me, thanks! It's rare that people know Nyquist on these boards, my hat's off to you.
I should try A/Bing a CD with an updated source, sounds like it would be ear opening!! From my experience the $ vs. fidelity ratio is an open ended topic, I've backed down to personal preference, use what makes you happy. It is an amazing experience to hear truly crisp audio
, sadly most people never will (ahem, Bose!).
anyway... back on topic...
I own a Novation Nova laptop
, total trance synth, not the fattest thing around but it's so easy to use, gobs of knobs up front, no buried menus.
The Yamaha An1X
is an older synth that everyone raves about, great bang for the buck if you can find one.
It's not a synth, but the Shermann Filter bank
is just about the sickest noise bender I've ever encountered, it can make a casio sound like the wrath of god. Pricey though.
I'm borrowing a Nord Lead 3
and am loving it, great layout and all those LEDs help track mod wheel tweaks, great fun!
Anyway, I'd recommend you check http://www.sonicstate.com/synth/
and start reading. I've found their reviews and current street market prices to be pretty accurate. Pick your price and go from there. Check out Roland, Novation, Waldorf, Korg, Clavia and Access
