  • Can the Nord Modular G2 get similar sounds to an Andromeda?

    I know it is VA and the Andy is analog but can it serve up similar sounds, as the Nord Modular G2 is less on the used market. Also, does the Nord Modular have a dedicated built in arpeggiator on the front panel or are the arpeggiating possibilities only accessed through programming the sequencer?

    G2 is freaking flexible and sounds very good. Dunno about the polyphony compared to Andy, though.

      Depends on what you mean by similar.

      Why do you persist Mr. Anderson?

        Thanks guys for the replies. evildragon, does it have an arp feature on the front too or is that layered within the sequencer?

        Umbra, sound like rhetorical question but I guess I am being too general. I guess what I want out of this thing is what I have heard the Andy do in some of the sound demos I have heard. And the ones I liked most were when it was:

        Immitating Moog Modular sounds.
        Doing Resonant Sweeps
        Vintage type arpeggiations and sequences in the style of Vangelis, Moroder, and John Carpenter

          I don't think it can sound anything like an Andy. I have an Andy and have access to a G2 engine. There is no commonality to my ears.

            i've had both... G2 you can obviously go in and build a similar architecture, but that alone won't make it sound the same. you'd have to EQ a lot i think. the basic filters alone on the two units are so different in my opinion, and same with the oscillators, tuning, etc.

              G2's arp is easily switched on and configured from the front panel - no computer or programming necessary...

                They don't sound much the same. The G2 is sharper and buzzier. Inaccurate terms, but hopefully somewhat descriptive.

                    Those apples and oranges look delicious-especially those oranges! If the A6 is the oranges I'll take one!

                              Well the link I left above is making this look more like an oranges vs lemons comparison to me, and lemons not meaning non functioning. What do you think of it?
