i just wanted your opinions on this topic. Are there any major differences between the two, and is it worth the money?
Iīve been using RTAS plugin synths like Omnisphere, Synplant, Xpand 2 etc. for a while now, but after listening to some demos of the Korg Krome 61, Korg Kronos 61, Roland Fantom G6/G8, Jupiter 50/80 and Yamaha Motif XF6/7/8, i gotta say i am pretty impressed. I just find that the hardware synths have much more depth and richness to the sound, compared to multi-synths like Xpand 2 and Omnisphere.
Thatīs off course listening to demos on youtube, i havenīt tried one my self. I am really torn on this, cuz i know alot of producers are very much in the box these days, using various plugins, but some still use these hardware synths.
Also, i running PT LE 8 with an Mbox 2 Mini. How do you guys figure a Yamaha Motif XF6 for instance would mesh with that? If i record through the audio-outputs it might reduce the quality right?, but if i go MIDI-out it should stay the same or what?
