the nord lead is not analogue the only analogue synth you have mentioned is the 303; and since you will probably want to bring the sounds produced into the digital domain at some point and process them further I would recommend Logic studio. Its 'cheap as', now anyway (under $500 US). Also VST's are no-longer supported on mac, AU (Audio Units) are the way to go unless you are planning on buying a pre-intel mac in which case you could use VST Wrapper or similar software to convert vst to AU. So while I support your move to mac I recommend you do your research first so you don't have a whole heap of unusable software.

Very useful advises, I think I'll get Logic. Is there any chance I'm going to find a way about the Nordlead 2? Any suggestions about analog synth? SH 101? This is old but classic. As for Access Virus, it costs a lot.
Anyhow I think I'll get a Nordlead. The question is : Will I be able to use it with Logic?
thanks!

just because the nord isn't analogue (Its what they call Virtual Analogue in fact the first nord lead was the first Virtual Analogue synth) doesn't mean its not a great synth; its fantastic; perhaps not as good or as well integrated into the digital domain as all the access gear which has fully integrated plugins that you can add to logic tracks. Still its an axe of a synth and pretty good value for money these days.

As for whether it will work with logic; of course it will wink.gif any midi compliant synth will work with logic all you have to do is connect it to your midi interface and your audio interface and hey presto...well wicked... though to get full functionality you will have to set up the 'environment' in logic to allow access and control of all its parameters via midi.

Also; as has been mentioned earlier in this thread you should think about adding some warmth to the signal chain whether it be by using a valve pre-amp or even plugins such as 'AmpFarm' or 'Amplitube'

Oh and the SH 101 is great and will give you true analogue kudos tongue.gif but you will have to get some kind of Midi to CV converter to allow you to sequence it. Good luck hope this helps
