Hardware synths with dedicated preset/patch buttons
Hello fellow slutz! Longtime reader first time poster. I love and appreciate the wealth of information I've gotten from here.
As a synth player/electronic musician who is trying to get away from the mouse and be all-hardware, I've found the synths that work best for me, both creatively and live, are ones with multiple dedicated preset/patch buttons. Aka a line of buttons where you an immediately switch between different saved patches.
Most boards nowadays have a dreaded data wheel where you have to scroll through hundreds of patches, sometimes in one giant bank (like my Novation X-Station, or even worse, my Korg Prophecy, which has forward and backward buttons to scroll through all of them one-by-one).
So my question to you, fellow slutterz, what synths do you know of that have dedicated patch shortcut buttons? Style of synth and era it's from doesn't matter. And the more buttons the better, obviously...
A few I know of off the top of my head are:
Korg Microkorg/MS2000, Novation Mininova, Roland Gaia (this one seems to be the best in this dept, with lots of buttons)...
Thanks in advance for your replies!!!
