The one yesterday went well so I'm starting up another one.
All modes and eras of synthesis are welcome.
Currently just own a Minibrute, but I've got a shopping list.
Plus I might be able to by my uncle's DX-7 for a couple hundred, he sold me his old drum kit too so fingers crossed.
Recently got a Roland a49 midi keyboard, pretty run of the mill but the quality of the keys is fantastic. I downloaded ableton and have messed around with it but I have yet to really delve into all the functions at my disposal. Any tips for beginners before I just jump in? I mean I'm gonna just fuck around until I figure it out regardless but I figured I'd ask anyway, I'm extremely new to this shit.
It's not DCO's. DCO's are fully analog sound, it's just the controlling of the waves that's digital. Makes everything cleaner and easier to keep in sync.
Analog modelling is just replicated analog circuitry made in 1's and 0's. It's fully digital.
Microbrute costs $300 (you can find them lightly used for way under)(I got a Minibrute for $375 and those cost $500).
So start there, it has MIDI, CV, and USB, so you use it with VSTs.
Korg Volca Keys just shipped.
Also, I bought an electric piano from around 70's or 80's for 50€. Fully functional with flute harmonics, different sound and a shit load of buttons and pedals I haven't gotten to use yet. Picking it up this weekend.
Stop right there m80, that there sounds like an electronic piano. I know the semantics between electric and electronic seem petty, but electric means amplified acoustic, like a Rhodes or a Wurlitzer, and electronic means it's all circuits like a synth or combo organ.
Neighter it's some weird eko shit,which is actually probably a toy. Sounds great.
Something like pic related, but a different version. Has a speaker on the bottom.
That's right, you're yuropeen. They're pretty good for when you want very specific sounds, but can sound cheesy as fuck too. I recommend plugging it into a filter when you get the chance
The MS-20 mini was a success
Which Korgs, Rolands, Yamaha's or whatever else do you want to have produced again with original circuit and maybe midi and other of todays standards?
For me i'd say Juno-60 and SH-2
Or even better. A new analog juno with patch saving and dedicated vst like the sub phatty. I'd be set forever with that.
