Well, you just should fix all the issues which involved Roland against anybody trying to get any emulation of their synths...a Synthex should be a lot more affordable in terms of licensing

because the synthex has a very CEM sounding taint to it.


Synthex only has CEM3320. It's a LP filter, and the others filter modes
are made with discrete circuitry around the CEM3320.
I don't feel it has CEM sounding. It's sound is really original.
I have a synthex and a jupiter 8, these two machines have their original
character. :D

About problems of licensing, for a synthexV it would be much more easy.

trouble is, the synthex is not a widely known synth, not even now.
selling a software plugin has surely got something to do with notoriety of the original instrument, fact is i'm not sure enough people would be bothered about the synthex, because most people have not heard of them or had the pleasure of playing one.
all this said it's an amazing synthesizer, of which i have owned, i still didnt think it sounded as nice as my early jupiter 8 though, even though its sonically capable of loads more.

Yes, people know more about a Jupiter than about a synthex.
But, people who listened Jean-Michel Jarre, could know about Synthex.

Well, people relying their knowledge of  Synthex synth only on Jarre's music don't know much about music themselves, just let me mention Keith Emerson and Stevie Wonder as just two of the top notch Synthex' users.....

No, they know more about jarre work than about emerson or stevie wonder work. The sound of synthex is more obvious in jarre work. :roll:

I didn't know that.  Can you point me to an example of Emerson playing Synthex?

I'm not much into ELP music , anyway KE used the Synthex in the 80s to replace the brass sound of his GX1 ( which was the starting point that led me to know that) for "Fanfare for the common man" in the ELP live acts, I'll be able to give you some more infos later... :wink:
