Let's have a good 'ole synth thread.
It's over priced for what it is, and in a year or two you'll be able to cope a second hand one because the rich people that bought them on release will saturate the market when they decide they're bored with them.
The same thing is happening now with the Minibrutes and Bass Station IIs, I got my Minibrute for $275 and have seen Bass Stations as low as $200.
>mfw Behringer is going to make an analog polysynth
>and I'm going to buy one to piss everyone off
Again, you're proving yourself to be a gigantic idiot. I never claimed to be the guy who asked the question, nor is the system-1 monophonic.
Please stop posting, you're only making yourself look bad
>Arturia and Behringer dominate reinvigored analog market
>outsell shitty, overpriced, digital counterparts
>Korg, Yamaha, Roland forced to compete
>new race to induce cheap, analog synths
The market gets what the market wants.
so my dad is pretty into his 80's synth music, and since christmas is coming i thought i might get him a synth.
digital synth software was just too much hassle for him and took him away from the keyboard, which is i think an improtant part of it for him.
do you guys have any suggestions on a relatively cheap synth, thats not too crazy complicated to use but still allows him the control over tone that he'd like?
any things to look for or avoid would also be much appreciated
The synth, Drone thingy i forget the proper name, this high end drum machine, accordion, 1950's Gibson hollow body, 1979 Gibson Sg, and a moog theremin. Im a guitar player, but the theremin and drone are fun to fuck around with
my LPD8 arrived yesterday
still happy about it
Does anyone know if Roland and Akai are actually still producing the SP series and MPC's? I really wish someone would come out with some good cheap new samplers, most sp's and mpcs are so fucking overpriced
I'm fond of it if only due to my love of the prospect of utilising FPGAs in hardware synthesizers. It won't be long until my dream FPGA powered multi timbre Physical modelling synthesizer is created by someone
for the price of just buying a bunch of second hand mini and microbrute and daisy-chaining them together. now THAT would be tight
amazing post i love you
i love the mininova to death
listen to other anon and cop the mininova instead. i'm a fanboy, but i also think the performance and funnily enough EXTRA features of the mininova make it a better purchase for a smaller price and smaller footprint
with that kind of format of controller you should have copped a beatstep. the LPD8 has some of the most shit build quality ever. nice feeling pads though. i fucking hate those mini pots
roland is fine and the GAIA is useful, despite being a noisy af synth. it has so many fucking voices that you have to be dumb to not see some fun in it. it can be bent to do interesting things
This thing seemed so promising until I realised it'd be useless for percussion programming due to not being able to trigger multiple things on the same beat or whatever. Was hoping I could use it as something like a cheaper Spark.
