Yeah, MFB do a rather nice looking analog sequencer too, which does keep tempting my wallet, but gauging by the build quality of the Nano, my money stays where it is!! LOL!
I bet you are kicking yourself. You got rid of a legend there. Sounds like the tuning was a pain though!!!
I would have gone for the Bass Station 2 & the new MS20, but figured that these synths have been (Original Bass Station) on loads of records by loads of artists, which got my whole "Innovate dont Emmulate" thing going on in my mind, so I went for the MiniTaur & Brute.
I know what you mean about hands on. I bought a TI Snow when they first came out. Love the sound, but the front panel is so Knob-less that you have to go through the software & create patches ala softsynth, which isnt ideal. Hindsight dictates I should have gone for the Polar or Desktop, I prob will chop it out one day, but am frantically buying compressors currently!! LOL!!:)
