    I like them a lot but haven't worked them into my pursuits yet.

      RIP. He sure was a nice fellow looking at this documentary.






      Rip Bob Moog.



      Dude was a sweetheart. He handled a lot of Sweetwater's dealer business personally when he was alive, and came here a bit. He was always super nice to everyone, and would stay around all day. In retrospect, I wish I would have spent more time picking his brain, like most of my coworkers did.





      Also....definitely a guilty synth geek here. Moreso than guitars at times in my life lol. List of good ol hardware synths I've owned is pretty crazy:

        ^I hope it won't get that out of hand with me.

          I love 'em, but I've never bought one. A buddy of mine has a Nord of some sort that was always a blast. His Roland Fantom was fun as hell too.



          I did have an Arp Odyssey in my possession for a couple of months, but it needed some fixin.

              LOL.



              I'm a huge fan of ambient/triphop, and used to play keys in an almost well known industrial band lol. We played with Combichrist, StaticX, Otep, Mushroomhead, Genitorturers, Hanzyl und Gretyl, etc...So yeah, I went crazy for a while.



              Sad thing is, I have a friend here in town who's current collection eclipses everything I've ever owned.





              EDIT: A lulzy pic of me with the Mainstage rig, when we opened for Rickets, years ago...

                Impressive. What are you using as a live-performance host ?




                I don't use it live (which may be what you're getting at), but that's not a problem. The knobs are easily mapped to knobs on a MIDI controller and you can use it live if you want. A modern laptop with a portable interface should work fine.

                I bet it won't make this badboy obsolete. I have a few of the Moog softsynth packages...they are cool, but no substitute for actual knobs and and buttons you can manipulate on the fly.




                Hardware synths are awesome, but Diva is the first software I've heard that makes me feel like sound wise there isn't an advantage of hardware over software. It's really impressive. If you want to manipulate the parameters live, just map the virtual knobs to MIDI knobs and you're good to go. I use it for recording though.



                Still, I understand that like amps, hardware synths have a cool factor that can't be beat.
