Looking to invest on my first hardware synth for deep/dark dnb. I know a lot of software synths can achieve sounds which are similar but I'm looking mostly for the hands-on approach. Now as it stands my budget ranges from £200-400, but naturally this includes the possibility of saving. These are the suggestions I've heard and gatheres from looking around so far: - Novation Minibrute - Novation Bass Station 2 - M-Audio Venom - Mikro Korg And of course there's always the Access Virus TI, although it's a bit out of my price range. Now my question is, to make the kind of dnb I'm trying to make is it worth waiting months for an Access Virus TI (and we're talking a bit of time here, I'm doing an internship and getting paid fuck all) or can one of these other synths achieve what I'm trying to achieve for now. Is there a massive sonic distinction between these synths, or is it just added functionality? Will one of the previous Access Virus models help me achieve this in a cheaper fashion? I only have a very basic knowledge of the synth market which is making this decision very complicated for me, if you can help make it easier for me I'd be very thankful! If you're curious about the kind of sound I'm trying to achieve think Dispatch, Critical, Proximity, etc. Also I know a great thing would be to go in store and test them myself but it seems they have gone extinct in London, at least from what I've gathered.
