I have a full boat Omega 8 with all of the filters.

In the past I wrote that the Waldorf Wave was the Ferrari of Synthesizers. The Omega 8 is the Shelby Cobra. This is nothing subtle about this guy, but it will peel the paint off of your studio walls. V2.0 increases utility, but I can help but stack up those 16 vco's and rattle the windows. If you have to ask how much, it might be too much, but you will never be sorry. Now if I could talk Greg into doing CS80 filters......

AMAZING!!! just bought the Omega-2 version!! got it with a special ordered purple faceplate. Looks amazing and the sound....... SO PHAT and WARM. Very clean, and the midi control factor makes this peice a diamond!!! Price is high but well worth it. I feel it is a definite expenditure but just to have it in the arsenal makes it a prize peice of gear.

god bless st.regis brothers and tim caswell for producing the # 1 analoge synth ever made period.

the specifications are unusual for a regular analoge synth , and its worth the high price ,

ill focus about the sound as you can find all specifications in thier site; imagine playing chords with the most evil sounds droppps sqeekkks that makes moog synths feel so cheep ,amazing quality format , heaven of modullar multivoice programmable fattest sounds... it goes well with the se1x along it ...

The Omega 8 is a superb sounding and beautifully executed instrument, and I do mean instrument. It is easy to make sounds on, and easy to integrate into a MIDI setup - all moves on the front panel can be recorded to a sequencer. It sounds solid, deep, impenetrable at times, and it blends well with acoustic instruments. I use it on everything that I do, even on recordings with no other electronic instruments.

The Omega is similar in some ways to a Prophet V (which I played for years), but has a number of features that bring into this century. As mentioned above, it has a full MIDI implementation, and it fully multi-timbral. There are stereo outputs for EACH voice, and mono inputs for each voice as well. You can use it as an 8-channel filter/processor for external audio if desired. The Prophet had a 24dB/oct Moog-style filter. The Omega has both Moog- and Oberhiem-style (12dB/oct) filters; the latter has 4 modes (LP, BP, HP, BR). Arp 2600 and TB303 filters are optionally available. There is an arpeggiator for those so inclined. There are 2 LFOs and 3 EGs, with flexible routing for all. If you want to get deep into it, the Omega will take you there.

All in all, I can't say enough about it. Do give it a listen if you're a fan of analog - you won't be disappointed.
