I can understand that perspective. I'm a big fan of SE gear, but the Omega and the Solaris are obviously different synths. While I won't try to convince anyone that either is better or worse for their needs, I will note that the Solaris has sonic capabilities that far exceed those of the Omega, especially in the digital-ish realm (VS waves, Waldorf waves, etc.) and I think the Solaris has a superior interface for programming. For more sonic diversity, one can load up an Omega/Code with multiple filter types -- an enticing proposition -- but the cost really adds up (i.e. significantly more than a Solaris).

If you're ever lucky enough to play them side by side, let us know what you think!
