The Analogue Solutions Leipzig is a Moogish clone that sounds more like an original Mini than a Voyager. It’s the synth to buy if you want a vintage synth new. I played with one at Schneider’s Beuro in Berlin and it does sound quite good. The “R” version you see above has been discontinued and a new “S” class is coming out soon. The new S has an 8 step sequencer, 2 full ADSRs and MIDI sync. Looks like it will be a tasty EBM machine.
“Leipzig-r (rack version) is now discontinued, but in about 2 months will have a new version called Leipzig-s.” – midician.be
Here we have an Analogue Solutions Oberkorn sequencer getting down with a Telemark SEM clone and Leipzig monosynth. I like the Analogue Solutions stuff because it sounds aged out of the box. Most new analog gear sticks on perfect pitch missing the point.
“CVM module. Sequencer is an analogue Oberkorn. Playing two MIDI synths; Telemark (making the crazy sound) and Leipzig-r (warm synth sound). Oberkorn is also controlling velocity (in turn changing the filter cut-off). Joystick just adding a little transpose. Also here you can glimpse my white Red Square.” – ASUKLTD
