I think I have to add my two cents.. This forum is trash. Someone gave this machine a 1 for lack of support because Alesis went out of business?? That's a GOOD POINT! :-) If I take care of my A6 and I'm one of the only few to have one ten years from now I will be ecstatic!! I was looking for years for my first real synth, there were lots that were close. I liked the Q and a couple of others, but LIKE was always the operative word.. As soon as I sat in front of the A6 I fell in LOVE with it:-) So who gives a sh!t if it costs more then most people's first car, I spend more time with my A6 then I spend DRIVING! For me, the layout is SO intuitive that I was doing things on an A6 in minutes what I was trying to do on other synths for hours, and the sound can be massive and really sinister.. You just have to try it and see, for me it was pretty obvious that this was the synth for me.

(obviously some people seem to be jealous, that's oke) i think the andromeda is a very good analog synth on it's own. it's difficult to control (has a big learning curve) but keeps inspiring on the other hand. the basic sound is clear and warm at the same time whereby i found that if skipping the effect section completely (using the aux direct output) and using some vintage effect instead finishes of the machine ! this thing hopefully is going to give me a long time of pleasure, i like it

Fair play to Dave below me who questioned the tit who gave the A6 a 1 out of 5. As well as not being able to spell sheep, he also thinks that the filters are digital! Mmm, some people need to do their homework or risk sounding like idiots. Anyway, I got my A6 yesterday, and so far I am very pleased with my purchase. I read up on the various limitations regarding the machine beforehand, so as to make an informed choice, and even though 2 grand is a lot of money, it's well worth the investment. A lot of the presets are pretty lame, although some showcase the potential of this beast! For anyone who is thinking about getting one, there are numerous forums and archives for the A6, so do your homework! The best thing about this machine, ( other than its looks! ) is the fact that it can imitate numerous classic analogs, but primarily has its own unique character. If it has to be a true analog, then this is the synth to own. Beautiful!!!!

surely after 5 yrs softsynth plus complicated controllers(lets say 50 knobs+20 sliders +all possible controlling devices)or dsp synths will take over real analog synths.because technology going cheap and coputers will become more and more powerful.but all real analogs will still keep their sacred status incl. a6 just because they're all unique design and arts crafts.they reflect art and electronic music history.and still sounds good,even softsynths may mimic the same sound,character and randomness of the real analogs,but they're still just a perfect emulator.

If you're considering buying it, download the manual first to understand how 'deep' it is. It is a very complex beast. You can find the manual at the alesis web site. Also, check the http://www.midiwall.com/archives/a6/ forum to browse the pros and cons of the synth from actual users of it. I love mine. 5/5
