All you folk on here with synths: what do you do with them?
I’ve had a Korg Minilogue for about a year and all I’ve done is learn about subtractive synthesis and play a few melodies by OMD and Yazoo!
I have no aspirations to be in a band but I wouldn’t mind composing a few pieces.
What do you do with yours?
I’ve been obsessed by synths since I first saw the Roland Jupiter 8 and Fairlight CMI back in 1980. And I think I bought one because I could finally afford it.Posted 3 months ago
Are you using a DAW?
I’ve been making tunes for a few years, I use Ableton with various plugins and an ever expanding selection of hardware, I’ve got my first proper album release coming up soon on a label that Apparat has released on so I’m pretty chuffed about that.
Gear list I can think of –
Two cases of Eurocrack
DSI Mopho X4
Behringer Model D
Arturia Drumbrute Impact
There might be more but I try to pick things up at the right price then if I don’t get on with it I can move it on without a loss.

Some nice gear fellas.
I owned some bits of kit in the early 90s before my kids filled life.
Korg M1 (bought for £500 with an Atari ST and Cubase)
Novation Bass station
Roland D50 (lovely FM sounds)
Akai S900 12 bit\S01
Korg Wavestation SR
Love Future Music mag back in the day!
Juno 106 are lovely. I always wanted one of those (and the JD800)
Recently bought a controller again and knobbing about with FL Studio but im well out of touch with all this new virtual stuff!
Its incredible now what you can produce on a budget.Posted 3 months agodarthpunkMember
I’ve always loved synths but never bought any hardware versions. Played around with soft synths a bit. Always had a soft spot for the DX7 and Moog’s luscious offerings.
If you really want to lose your life for the forseeable future, get yourself to VCV and enjoy the free download of their modular rack software and hundreds of plugins.Posted 3 months ago
