The Pulse has a character that is unique. Im using two in parallel at the moment (one stuffed full of lead sounds and one full of v.cool bass) and intend to add a third soon. Like most people I bought one for the bass, but the lead sounds are also fantastic and fairly limitless once you suss the programming. The programming is easy and actually enjoyable as good results are almost always inevitable from even 10 minutes tweaking. (best to run a sequence loop thro the pulse when doing this to speed up the creative process!). The pulse initially sounds very techno, but thats down to its presets - its capable of all sorts of stuff - RnB, Deep House, Drum n Bass, Electro, 70s Jazz Funk, Disco House, Trip Hop, almost anything with a bit of careful tweaking. Cant beleive they dont cost a lot more they sound like classics. The only thing that comes close in terms of 'modern analogue-ish' gear has to be the YAMAHA AN1X, which is as good, but for different reasons if you know what I mean. Forget anything Roland pretend is dance orientated gear as its not even at the game compared to a Pulse. Pick up a cheap sampler for your drums and a pulse for your basses/leads and youve got instant pro standard sounds for a lot less than the price of one of those MC505/305 toy things.

I bought this about two years ago and paid what I thought was a lot of money for a monophonic synth. How wrong I was, it gives better value and fun per pound/dollar than many a modern "sampled megastation" can, although they are fun as well. What ever I am doing I always seem to use the pulse.

I wanted bassmodule and this is it! And this makes more, great leads and weird noises. VERY easy to use. 12DB filter would be nice but that's ok. Buy it, it's cheap today!

Sonically this thing blows out any other gear I own (among are: AN1x, and Micro Modular (very good second place though)). Does anything between grab-you-by-the-neck-leads to intenstine-massaging-Basses (mind the capital B...). Midi is great, Filters are the weirdest I have ever used. To me it sounds alot better than Novations Bassstations. Make some very good agreements with your neighbours when you can play your music.. ;o)

If you want pure analog (why?), buy analog. If you want close to analog and better, buy a KORG Z1. This synth gives you exactly all the fat sounds you want (some even better than its analog forfathers) and much, much more!
