Sorry but I must react to this :

Experimental : with a modular like this (ok it is "just" an emulation...), if YOU CANNOT GET EXPERIMENTAL STUFF??? you better go learn something about synthesis, subtractive, FM, etc... and then get back to your NORD MODULAR --> or ANY MODULAR...

"...but i cant get from him a very worm sound. i think that clavia dident made this synth for wormf but the basic line is emulating sound of somthing you cant (today) emulate"

CLAVIA has just created a HUGE MODULAR SYSTEM inside your small synth + computer, hence an emulation (or Virtual) of an ANALOG MODULAR SYSTEM, just like the NOrd Lead is a "Virtual Analog". Not that their "basic line is to emulate something you can't today" !!! You missed the point, I mean you missed THEIR (THE) POINT !!!!!!!!!!!! So since it is "Virtual" - of course you should not expect warm fat sounds that yu can get with a REAL ANALOG MODULAR SYSTEM !!! Please STOP !!! stop dreaming, a big REAL MODULAR SYSTEM would cost you 50-100 times the price you pay for a NORD MODULAR !!! and the size too, so when you pay only "this much", don't expect it make "warm" sounds that ANALOG GEARS make... it is here to provide INFINITE POSSIBILITIES TO CREATE SOUNDS. NOT TO RE-CREATE ANALOG SOUND. (but only to re-create the way a sound is shaped with a modular, NO - NOT IT'S WARMTH)

I will still rate this thing : 4. It is a DAMN COOOOOOL Concept !!! I love it... I can do thing I can ONLY dream of... I have a few Modular systems : they of course sound better... that's why the Nord Modulat only gets a 4... but this is in no way a complaint, just that I cannot give it a 5 out of 5, since it is not perfect...

I have been working wiht several Buchla and Roland modular systems, and Nord Modular is a revolution in modular synthezisers. To spend hours or days to create a sound, and than has a possibility to store and recall it later-It´s great. The way of building massive sound or strange soundscapes is som intuitive, so simple and som fun. Only ting i miss is some sort of sample bank among the oscillators. Mailed Clavia, but they say no such moduls are planned. But still, it´s the ultimate synth for a soundcreator.

i don't see this point of emulation....if you want these aptches ok, but you can build really new things, weirdest ever, yes it's not warm as a real analogue, but the FM things that this can do are awesome;

you van build bass simal to moog that turns into bells with 2 morphing knobs.

too good.

yes it is a very good synth. but i think that some extra power of dsp can make it a one of a kind. its sound very good when i programed my sound but i cant get from him a very worm sound. i think that clavia dident made this synth for wormf but the basic line is emulating sound of somthing you cant (today) emulate.i am very pleesd from my nord but i wish it was mor "experimental sound"
