Hey Soundquest, how would you compare the Summit with the Poly Evolver Keyboard?  Have you experimented with panning the Summit's output pairs in opposite directions for a Evolver-esque stereo depth?  Is one instrument warmer for rich pads than the other?  It seems from the outside as if a Summit would be a good substitute for a PEK.

I think the P12 is a more apt comparison than the PEK. I've owned a Peak, Evolver, and P12 module. Both DSI instruments are dirtier and have more character. The Peak sounds great and has a much better layout than the other two, but the filter didn't strike me as anything special. Although I prefer it to the extremely bland Waldorf Quantum that I briefly owned. The PX stereo filters are the best of the bunch (in that hybrid field), but I don't prefer them to the P6, P5/P10, or OB-6 filters.

I'm going to wait for the P12 successor that hopefully has SSI2140 filters.

I had a Prophet 12 for a short while, and I'd agree that the Summit resembles it in tonal character.  But the Poly Evolver is a most unique instrument.  It can certainly sound nasty if you ask it to, but it also is capable of the sweetest richness and warmth.  I've found it unexpectedly to be a very difficult instrument to replace, however hard I try.

Despite having the Summit for a quite a while now I really haven't pushed the experimentation envelope much yet.  I hope to be able to answer this better down the road.    I find the filter on the Summit being its strong point.  Just starting to play around with multi-layers.
