Virus TI vs Prophet 5 vs Mono/Poly

I had the opportunity to do a comparison, so i recorded the unfiltered waveforms of a Prophet 5 Rev 2 (SSM 2030), Korg Mono/Poly (SSM 2033) and the TI through the same A/D converter. Filters fully open, envelopes neutral. With the Virus TI i chose a single Hypersaw wave, the Eat Pulse wavetable index 0, and the Alternator wavetable index 3, which sounds the most resembling to a triangle of the wavetables to my ears, also included is the classic triangle.
Eq, punch, character were all set to off.
Hear for yourself and have fun, i let you know later when a few people have posted which is which.

Each waveform is played in 3 octaves always in the same order within the same file. To keep it more interesting the order of the saw file is different from the square and different from the triangle file.

Saws: Synth A - Synth B - Synth C
Squares: C - A - B
Triangles: A - C - D - B

May I ask why you haven't loaded them as wav files to a server or similar so we don't have to download and unzip files? You am get more coverage that way.

Btw I've loaded mp3 on here upto 10meg so far, not sure what the limit is.

I have no idea why the wave files didn't show up with my first post, maybe gearslutz doesn't like wav files, so i zipped them.Here once again as wav.

I look forward to hearing your opinion, Jamie. Obviously there are differences, but thin sounding is none of these.
