How about an analog synthesis Umpf? Like the kong modules and microtonic, but with an Umpf twist and form factor?

Thoughts?

But it's gonna be an RE, so not *really* analog ;) :P

Also, you can do drum sounds with most of the synths in Reason's rack, so why not use those if you want to "create" drums by yourself?

I do wish there was another set of drum synth modules to make sounds with, but not UMPF. I have all of the drum synthesis Rack Extensions so far, and I can definitely use other RE's to roll-my-own too. I just wish we had some that sounded like Bitwig's or Pure Data or MaxMSP.

Yeah, I can make these sounds with almost any synthesizer (been doing this since '95) by myself, but I would rather have low-DSP single modules for ONLY that purpose. Purely for speed and yet another sound. I use the Noise Engineering modules for stuff like that and it's fantastic. More truly radical synth modules would be nice, too :D

Imagine 1/2 rack modules turned on their side, like 500 series or Eurorack. That'd be sweet!

Small, 1/2 rack modules or actually modular like Complex-1, maybe in a Eurorack format. Not sample-based, but synthesized. and NO VST. Glad others love VSTs, but I'd rather just stay within Reason via Rack Extensions. Everybody else is goin' modular. I wish we'd go full-on like Reaktor, like Bitwig, like VCV, etc. Modular is fun!

You're suggesting that their analog modelling is bad? Just a money grab? :o :shock: :?

No, it's great for what it is but it's not *really* analog - I thought there can't be much of a difference until I got Analog Four Mk1 :)

Yeah I'll have to politely disagree with you, there. U-He's analog modelling is legendary, and Synapse Audio's Legend totally knocks it out of the park. There's a plethora of others - even Softube's modelling of classic analog gear rocks it.

Of course it's not *really* analog - it's digital code emulating it. But I'd wager that - especially in a mix - not you nor most other people could tell the difference between a good emulation and its real-world hardware counterpart. ;)

Didn't this all start with U-he Diva blowing away Sylenth?

Anyway...Analog is awesome. A good digitally modeled analog is even better!!! You get all the tone, without the inconveniences or cost.

^^ He gets it ^^

I mean seriously - I love hardware and nothing is cooler than tweaking real-world devices that you can touch, but come on now peeps... we're all here because we dabble with virtual instruments.

Amusingly enough, I owned the Analog Four mk1 for a short time. The specs looked good on paper, but I thought it's character was very clinical and boring to be honest. Not a device I would think of as a selling point for hardware analogue tbh.

You might be right, but it's my 1st ever truly analog gear, so for me the difference was very obvious and quite substantial - more so than I expected.
