You can load serums wavetables and create them with serums editor too, in case you don’t know.

So far I only have the case and the Synthbox. My next step is the ES-8, which I will use with Audulus to provide modulation and CV processing. And of course I plan to gobble up all that Dreadbox goodness.

Wavestate is a good synth, not knocking it but it’s not really comparable to what’s on offer here with eurorack. All told, this system will cost $1573, which will put it well under the price of some fixed-architecture polys (although again, that kinda misses the point).
Fun looking system! A fair amount of power in a small package.

To be fair though when comparing prices you should include the cost of a case, power supply and patch cables, which depending on what you choose will put the total cost very close too or possibly well over $2000. And then there is the cost of a keyboard, sequencer, or computer etc to play the rig not to mention reverb, a headphone amp, and an audio audio output interface, but you may already have those so it wont impact your cost, but others doing comparisons should keep those items in mind. Or not . . .

Geez . . . I need to quit participating in this thread, I'm selling myself too hard on a Wavestate and want to pull the trigger on one!

Just do it! That's pretty much impulse-buy pricing right there.

Yeah you’re right, I should mention that I’m using it in conjunction with may Analog Keys, AE Modular rack and multitracker setup. So all of that extra stuff is covered.

Regarding the Wavestate if you’re feelin’ the feelin’, you should go with it!

I always tried to get the right tool for the job that needed to be done.

For me, polysynths are rarely about extensive modulations or complex voicings. If I'm playing chords or sustained pads or something, I want something that articulates well, sounds thick, and has a bit of movement or dynamics. Usually that can be accomplished if I am using a polyAT capable machine or with some simple LFO/envelope modulations. When I had a Matrix-12 for example, I rarely created polysynth patches using lots of the modulation; it often ended up sounding like a muddy mess.

I look at monosynths/lead voicings as a place where I'd want more complexity and interest, so having something with extensive capabilities and/or fully modular would be a better choice for me.

In fact, I've decided to sell off a handful of monosynths (well, the Perfourmer is both a mono and a poly in some ways) and a few other pieces and fully embrace a modular system for a lot of monosynth duties.

I have a very minimal amount of Eurorack (half rack only with switches/quantizer/control stuff like that), so we'll see how I get along with a full larger system.
