I play in an alt pop band. Currently I'm using an Akai MPC 1000 and a Korg R3. I'm looking to buy a synthesizer for the purpose of playing bass lines. I'm underwhelmed by the novation bass station, or at least by what I've seen of it. I've been thinking about the Microkorg XL, the Alesis Micron and the Akai Miniak. Factory presets aren't priority for me really, I'll be editing/making my own patches anyway. Which of these would produce the best basslines? Is there a synth I haven't mentioned that will do the job? Thanks for your help!
