another which synth thread

so yeah I think I just about got enough dolla to treat myself to another toy, trying to build up my studio as much as poss at the moment for a winters hibernation of no daylight / outside world

I make electronic music spanning a lot of different genres, but based within dance music. Im really enjoying using hardware as its helping break up my workflow & anchor my sound

I currently have a Yamaha DX7, a TG33 & a Voyager and I love them all

Im just looking for a synth to complement these

Im looking to spend about £350 - 500

im probs not really wanting another monophonic synth as I feel i got that covered with the voyager.

Im not too worried about if stuff is hard to programme or not cos I find the TG33 & DX7 quite easy an everyone seems to complain about both of them, I much prefer programming hardware to software

I was thinking about getting a virus c thought it kind of sits slap bang in the middle with the FM one side an the Analog the other

do you think this would be a wise choice or do you think i could do any better with anything else, very open to suggestions

really interested in any viewpoints / ideas

I think it's time to put the SQ80 into dance music.

In that price range, I'd suggest a Waldorf XT or some VA.... Virus B or C is a good choice, but there's also stuff like the Korg Radias (forget the microkorgs), the Roland JP8000/8080, and the Novation Supernova.

Or, to go in a completely different direction, something like the Korg MicroX (Triton-based rompler) might give you a wide palette of sounds that you can't get from your current gear.

You definitely can't go wrong adding a Virus to your setup. The Virus B and C are worth looking into.
