    MV scores? Anyway... I don´t see a Waldorf synth for the typical BEEFY sound. I have a microQ and the sound is a lot more thin and tinny compared to stuff like Supernova and Virus.

    For basses Waldorf would not be my first choice At least not Q and mQ - dont know the others as well, but I believe that ´German´ sound is written allover Waldorfs synths.

    For basses, Supernova is known to be really good. Virus is not bad either, and Virus can do A LOT more. Lush pads, in-your-face distorted sounds, weird efx etc. Nordlead is also an option.

    Thanks Simon,

    I\'ll add a Virus to my studio then, it\'s decided...
    Thanks for the advice...
    P.S.
    I love your new GOS demos, especialy col legno one..

    You can program that kind of bass with any synth that has a good lowpass filter..
    I believe it\'s mostly done with a sawtooth lfo (|\\|\\|\\) on the filter, and then using a couple of detuned square\'s on top of each other running through this filter.
    Then you can use the mod connected to the filter to open and close the filter so the lfo becomes more or less pronounced.

    Cheerio,

    Joe

    Simon,

    Have you tried John Bowen\'s Prophet for the Pulsar?

    I usually do that \"pulse\" with filters and ride the filter in real time.

    I built a gnarly synth sound on my Korg Analog modelor. Really small patch tho,...needed to be for the project I used it on. I got nice results just riding the CC11/volume control but thats because I couldn\'t use filters on it


    Anyhow, yah the Virus would be a nice one to have

    Nope but I have the Pro-1 - pretty nice synth. I am a bit reluctant using Pulsar these days though, since the sluggishness of the GUI is p*ssing me off.
