The Studio Electronics Omega 8 is one of those pure analog synths that makes you go wow when you hear one in person. I spent a lot of time with an “O8” at Schneiders Buero in Berlin. I think it’s up there with a real MiniMoog and Macbeth M5 as far as it’s “WANT!” factor.
“Sound: absolute dream. 8 discrete voices. Analog and fat, yet tight and precise and articulate. None of that “carelessly eating up too much sonic space” stuff. It gets to the point and delivers sonic oomph very efficiently. I’ve yet to perform the auto-tune on it so far. I give it enough time to warm up, and all 8 voices are well-behaved. Sounds alive.” – Calvin Cardioid
Calvin Cardioid has posted a very nice set up samples on his blog cl516 and over on his SoundCloud page.
I think the Calvin’s color choice is excellent. Check out more photos on his blog: http://cl516.blogspot.com/
