EMS VCS3 or Synthi
These are the last big ones I can think of that haven't been emulated yet and that shouldn't have too much legal issues. Of course the market right now is starving for any classic Roland and/or Oberheim. Just to list a few of the "must be emulated" list:
Roland Jupiter 8 - with some features of the Jupiter 6
Roland Juno 60 - with some features from the Juno 106
Roland SH-5 - Perhaps the best of the SH series
Roland System 100 - Classic Roland modular
Oberheim OBX - with the modulations of the Matrix series
SCI Pro-One - My favorite monosynth!
And here's some classics that have been emulated but are older generation VSTis and I think need to be redone:
PPG Wave - the Waldorf version is 80% there, just the filter is not quite right.
Prophet 5 - same thing, about 80% there. I have the Creamware version that nails it.
, yes! I proposed it too some time ago, the hardest things to do are in my opinion the Chorus circuit and the 4 track sequencerVCS3
: clever idea too but let's keep things as they were, i.e. monophonic with a poliphony given by more instancesSystem 100
: agree too, even if it was a very simple synth ....
In my opinion it would be nice to see come the VP330
out, it had tons of personality even if it was a simple vocoder\string\choir machine......but I think that to emulate Roland stuff will be much harder on the label\logos permission
...well some days ago I thought about the Waldorf Wave , that huge keyboard of mid-90s which expanded the PPG capabilities to unimaginable : formant synthesis, 8-op FM, sample treatment, simply a miracle keyboard!
anyway I need the most important thing for the moment: will the actual synthesizers be improved!
, especially the CS-80V
