just on a put tone level, the omega is hard to beat, i just had a problem with the interface, it wasn't fun for me.
i would rather have something like the g2 that makes more complex evolving sounds, a heavy buzzy analog bass is great, but how many times can you use it? the omega wasn't very versatile... i actually like my minibrute
a lot better, partially because of the tonally variety partly because of the interface.
the sound of the g2 has to be kinda coaxed out in certain areas,, its never gonna do as well as the omega for those heavy bass sounds, leads, but you can do a lot to get a better sound in those areas.... but lets see the omega do a crazy evolving pad with tons of modulation and effects.
the issues i had with my omega was the arp, stacking voices, and versatility,.. plus you couldn't save patch edits in the multimode,,, i hated that, not a deal breaker but annoying... i loved it bass though, it was a monster for that, but just about every sound i made on it seemed to turn into a stack unison sound, with a ton of buzz, 99% of the time i would just use the evolver
, it was faster and i wasn't loosing much.
i can understand why they would loose money, they are a bit complex, most people dont want to design their own sounds, not saying its a bad thing, but its the case, plus as i recall they were pretty expensive.... bad combo,
soundwise its a bit like the elektron gear, not the best sound quality right away, but with some tweaking it comes along very well, and the versatility is great,,, as a complete system its amazing, i mean look at the octarack, its a decent sounding sampler, not the best, with a sequencer that software destroys as far as features go,,,, but somehow the package makes a super inspiring box that i love,
