I am just so excited about this I wanted to share it somewhere. I bought two of my dream synthesizers this month. My wallet hurts and my drums are lonely, but I am happy getting lost in the sounds and textures.

Moog Subsquent 37 and Dave Smith Prophet Rev2

Very cool. I currently have a Sub37 and love it, though I don't get to play it enough.

I bought a used Access Virus C that I use with a foot pedal controller playing bass. I actually like the moog sounds of the Virus digital creations of analog sounds better than the older moogs. I had a Moog Taurus pedal for years that I thought sounded very good and unique but to me became limited. I just got tired of it and was a bit heavy and bulky. I sold it to get the Virus. The demos I've heard of Dave Smith stuff I think is top notch. Waldorf just came out with the new Quantum that costs an arm and a leg. Wonder how that thing sounds.

I recently got a Moog Minitaur, and tried it out at a jam last week. I dig it, it is a great-sounding synth and feel the Moog quality is top-notch; however was disappointed with the upper range (they capped it at an upper bass range). Great bass sounds from it though.

I wonder about the sequencer on the DS Prophet Rev2: I also have a Poly Evolver keyboard; only 4 voices but otherwise a very deep synth! It has a sixteen step sequencer with I think around 4 routing possibilities per step, and wonder how similar or different it is from the Prophet Rev2 sequencer.

Moog hit it out of the park with this one. Someday I'd love to own a Model D or Voyager, but the Sub/Subsequent is such a solid piece of gear that I can take to gigs and not worry about.

I haven't spent much time with the DS - the Moog is just too much fun. I loved the way the Prophet 8 sounded and this is a nice upgrade on that. The Quantum looks amazing..Don't know if I'll ever afford tho ha!

Would love to own a Minitaur to boost my bass sound even more on the Subsequent 37.

I haven't messed with the Prophet too much as of late. What I have done on the sequencer was very intuitive and can get complex very quickly. I only have the 8 voice Rev2 but the 16 voice Rev2 takes the sequencer to the next level apparently.
