the 101 can be wicked for melodic purposes, and it fits the criteria. The OP said, bass and melodic lines - well, melody and bass usually ( not always ) are monophonic. Raw, hands on, etc. Great tone - ( you don't get horrible sound at the top end with analogue, it's still a pure tone.)kdgh wrote:Minibrute

I'm only just realising how versatile my 101 is, I was musically inexperienced when I had one the first time around, it's a simple synth but man, it's so hard to get a bad sound out of it.
