I am looking to buy another synth I am looking at the Pro 8 or the Roland MKS 80 and programmer version 4.
I know the A6 can cover most basses so what would you get?

I already own an EMS Synthi, Serge modular, Planb livewire modular,,,,im thinking of selling the Waldorf Pulse to help pay for the next purchase.
Id like to say analog

The MKS80 is pluckier than the A6, and has that 6dB bass boost circuit. It makes nice, woody plucks.

I don't know how the P'08 will do for bass, but I'll bet that it has it's own thing going as well.

Personally, I had an MKS-80 at one time. Never really liked it.

For a start, the sound is kind of on the softer side of analogs, which of some course is what some people are attracted to. Not me I guess.

For bass, I never liked its envelopes -- they are software if I recall, and in the era it was made software just didn't snap like hardware did. That isn't to say you can't make good bass on the MKS-80, it just won't be that snappy tight bass you can get on modern software EGs, and especially hardware EGs.

I think the Prophet '08 sounds, at least from the samples, more different than the A6 than the MKS-80 does. MHO.

I ended up buying a MKS80 and programmer for US$1779 version 4.
I use to own a JP8 so I was hoping to get that sound again without the space of the JP8.....I tried the P08 and whilst it is good it felt a bit thin to me, but I had just played a CODE minutes b4
