Modal SKULPT SE // vs MicroKORG and OB-6 // How Virtual Analogs massively improved


video by Starsky Carr

"Virtual Analog synths seem to be taking a few knocks here and there at the moment. But something as small and great value as this is well placed to show the detractors quite how well we've come on in the past few years."

Disclaimer and the obvious: not all early VAs are the same, and not all analogs are the same. There are plenty of vintage analogs that sound anemic and a few VAs that sound quite bold and do cut through the mix. They all have their own character. RE age, the Access Virus TI, Waldorf Q, and the original VA, the Clavia Nord Lead, hold their own. Lumping all early VAs with the MicroKORG is a bit misleading. That said, this is a useful video as it does touch on differences in design for three individual synths. Remember, when you watch any given synth demo, that demo only covers what you actually hear, and that is usually just a small glimpse into a synth's capabilities.
