I'm planning to get a Kronos but have also become interested lately in the Moog Subsequent 37 (or Behringer Poly D) realize it is a vastly more complex synth that does many other things, but for analog synth funk type stuff, how would the Kronos compare? I would imagine it's pretty damn good, and it's so nice to have a full length keyboard and all the assignable options: aftertouch, velocity sensitivity for filter modulation, etc. Then again, is the Sub 37 aggressive in a way that you can only get buying analog?

Thank you for any thoughts.

I am also curious, if anyone has tried or owns the Behringer Poly D, what are your thoughts? i have this sense I would miss patch memory. I'd have to recreate any patches I like every time. Do you regret not having it?

You may want to take a look at the documentation in the Operations and Parameter guides specific to the AL-1 engine... you will likely be amazed at the capabilities built into the Kronos in this area.

Yeah, Herbie talks in this video about how they nailed the sound to his iconic bass line from Chameleon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTXDnPoyYSU

I wish there was a GC or other music store near me, in Western Mass, including Connecticut, that had a Kronos I could demo for its funk and analog sounds. One of them had a Montage but no Kronos.
