Nord lead 2 or Studio Electronics SE-1???

So i have narrowed it down to these 2 synths I would like to get mainly for plump bass. All I can go off of is what people say and youtube videos because I cant demo a SE-1 in my area.

1. Nord Lead 2
2. Studio Electronics SE-1

was considering something by Dave Smith but I figure I need something more powerful than a Mopho or a Tetra as my main bass synth.

What do you guys think??? I like the moog type sound but am mainly looking for something more bouncey and plump for a big progressive electro type sound.

Open to any other suggestions also

I'll tell you right now that if you're serious about synths, the nord lead 2 will destroy pretty much anything you put it up against.

Except maybe a virus or something of that magnitude. But I'd say even then they're on par with the virus.

Recently did an entire record where the keyboardist/synth player used a Nord Lead 2 and a Moog Voyaguer and both had such huge lush tones. The stereo effects you can create with it are unreal, and the ability to just create new sounds in a second is also a huge selling feature for me.
