Hi, i'm looking for a new mono synth, i produce electronic music (especially house!) and i wuold make big and fat bass. I have a juno 106 for chord and pad... i think that vermona is better builded than mfb and maybe it's more clean a precise, but MFB has more features and controls!
I can not decide! can you suggest me??
PS: I also have a MFB 522 and i love it, but i know that it is "rough" and imprecise, and maybe in a drum machine it's good, but i don't know in a synth!
I had a synth II - sounds great with a good beefy low end, but can be difficult to integrate into a setup, and is a bitch to keep in tune. I would say it's a good experimental sample source - the onboard step sequencer is limited but effective. Perfect for drones actually.
I thought the mbf synth2 was not in production??!
Id back the sequencer unit if it's an option. But that's more so for playability and performance perhaps it's not a heavy weight for you in your selection.
If is pure simplicity and great tone grab the vermona, I don't think you could go wrong with it.
If you're suggesting expanding the vermona to begin with, than you could also go for the mono lancet in combination with the vermona retroverb. The retroverb includes an excellent reverb - but more importantly a multimode vermona filter. So this will give you the vermona sound with more flexibility. And if you can swing it - than even go for the per4mer mkii.
