Korg Prologue
What are the best synthesizers in your opinion under 1000$?
* Arturia Minibrute 2S - Good especially if you want weird harsh sounds. The patchbay gives you a ton of sonic space to explore. * Moog Minitaur - The real Moog sound for $500. * Korg Prologue 8 - Doesn't cover much territory that your Minilogue XD doesn't already cover, but for someone that wants a classic analog polysynth, I think this one's a really good deal.

Topping MX3
The Do-It-All MX-3
I was looking for a device that could play all my favorite music with my laptop being the primary source in a desk top environment. After much research I chose the Topping MX-3. In my opinion this is the perfect device for this mission.
You can connect to the MX-3 in various ways. For the laptop, e...
