How Easy is it to program synth X..

Hey Slutz,

Just killing some time and doing some research. I like subtractive synthesis and am getting better the more i play. Personally the easiest synths i have used (this may be preference) is the Juno 60 and the Moog voyager. They just make sense.

Played with an andromeda and well - manages to make a sound like air being passed from a panda clearly not my thing..

From your experience which synths are most enjoyable to program and why!

Additionally any you hated working with! STEEP learning curves etc..

I'll just spout a cliche here and say that FM synths tend to be the hardest to intentionally get a good sound out of when programming. For hardware, I would vote for the Yamaha TG-77 having the densest interface/menu structure (255 menu pages!). Even when using a computer-based editor it inflicts pain.

Easiest? Any synth covered with knobs. Off the cuff, I'd say the Nord Lead, due to the close proximity of all the controls to one another.
