Polyphonic analog synths always get me excited. I always hope to hear something as organic and rich as an old Moog or Oberheim or Jupiter.

I'm sure Behringer has done some very laudible engineering and conception. And they're wizards for managing to sell a 12 voice analog for less than 10 zillion dollars.

But as capable as this synth is, I just don't hear anything out of it that sounds better than any good VA synth. :^{ I'm sure it's not because they didn't have the best of intentions. But it's disappointing.
Truth be told, Korg's Minilogue is the same: great features & specs, but sounds no better than a VA (imho). :^{
