  1. I don’t know about you guys, but DVI Pro2 and SubPhatty 37 seem so much more compelling! . Maybe if you need all the patching?
    Anyways, hard to tell in a demo in which you hear “very little music”

    1. Well it’s a matter of taste so I can’t say you’re wrong 😉
      I love them all!!!! And can’t afford any…
      Sure the guy doing the sub37 demo got a magic touch, really amazing stuff. And the moog is sooo musical and precise even when it gets raw and dirty.
      This sound like some truely mad stuff from the 70’s that can get so powerfull and dissonant aswell as ethereal and melodic. At least to me…

  2. Wonder if the synth’s name is an early Human League reference?

    Sounds good to my ears, but I’m partial to the rough ‘n tumble MFB sound and own a Synth II.

  3. smooth it isn’t but kinda like it, as I can only afford one of dominion, sub 37 and pro -2 its going to have to be the smooth moog first choice, this 2nd, If I get money to f*** about on!!

  4. Modern day Korg MP-4 (monopoly) with memories & decent patching. True analog always sounds more present and alive to my ears, if not a little harsh. Hours & hours if not years of experimental twiddling but musically – dunno.. No built-in delay & same price point as Pro2, this the Moog 37 & the DSI Pro 2 if i could afford any of these would be hard to decide. Horses for courses they all have their strengths and weaknesses. Pro2 by a nose:P
