I have two of these synths. I use them daily in my work. They are the best analogue synths I have ever used by some substantial margin. I used a minimoog over thirty years age and an Arp 2600. Neither get close. The margin is vast. The sound possibilities are endless. The power is enormous. It is pretty and reliable. It has a full midi spec. You need to be an experienced synthesist, which many reviewers clearly aren't, to get much out of it. My Jupiter 6 and 8 get to sit gathering dust. They are very out moded. A6? The best analogue synth ever. Of course, enlightened people know not to contradict this fact. A fact it is.ignore the 'ya mo be' silly nonsense.

I really wonder if CEM even tried to explore the A6 fully. I personally find it to be one of my most inspirational synths. The A6 has plastic parts, but so do cellphones and TVs today... Think anybody is going to buy an old TV because it's made out of wood and steel? Companies don't make things like they used to. That's because the technology inside is what most companies spend the money on. The A6 is a quality product. It's amazing how Alesis tackled analog synthesis in a way to allows the comfort of using it in a modern setting. I was getting sick of lugging heavy unreliable vintage synths, and I've been able to emulate the majority of sounds I want on the A6.

The A6 has a very bright character to it. While this might instantly make the A6 sound 'digital', don't let this fool you. You can use this to your advantage and widen your palette to almost digital-like pads, or crystal clear bell tones. Making a good vintage bass takes a little work, because the filter is much wider than on older synths. Unfortunately this gives a false impression that the A6 cannot do a good bass - Oh yes it can.

mooger a professional user from uk writes:
The andromeda is a superb analoge synth as I have said before,and as said before the jups and oberheims etc are all cool synths. In answer to the review from CEM.I actually think the andromeda is a more complex beast than the synths you mention and it is not very hard to understand the workings of a jupiter 8 obxa memory moog etc so what on earth are you talking about. I could not really understand what you are talking about since your english is so bad. I Had to laugh when you stated 'leave the analysis to us' to who exactly?you?you cannot even spell and your english is grim. happy new year and may i suggest some english lessons?

cem a professional user from new york writes:
I want to answer to some of the guyz here like sneakyalien .. they are a bunch of brokendown amateurs and know nothing about synthesizers.. Comparing the chineselike ridicolous plastic andromeda to real vintage monsters is nothing but a joke.. Having lots of syhths in the past will not mean anything unless you happen to understand them thoroughy.. So plase guy make way to real analog guyz and leave the analysis to us.. happy new year:)

A ballsy synth reaching back into the yore of the Moog modular and Oberheim 4-voice. What do they got in common?

AMERICA BABY! This synth is from a USA company proud of its synthesis roots. Warm, pounding, aggressive tone. The Andromeda is the shining star in the jewel of Alesis' crown. Alesis, usually a "budget" company but one that has recently produced A6, Ion, Micron, and Fusion. Bringing pride back to the States!

Detractors of this synth are fascists, communists, or screw-ups. Japanese synths ruined the marketplace and corroded our values. At first, they were analog, but as soon as they found a new (cheaper) technology they championed it. And left our analog technology in the dust... lobbying the media to portray digital Jap synths as better. Well, this proves them wrong. It compares well with the old boys and it moves well beyond them.
