If you are a synthesizer enthusiast with a collection of instruments, then the chances are good that you have been told how your hobby is a waste of money.

The latest firmware update for Bass Station II adds five powerful and innovative new features to Novation’s hugely popular monosynth, all of them developed in response to user feedback and requests

There are a lot of negative things about the Internet, but one thing is for sure, being a fan of niche instruments such as vintage synthesizers would have been a lot less social without it.

If you want to step away from your hardware synth and mess around with something a little different on your phone or tablet, then these touch based synths for Android could give your creativity a boost.

Just like any other hobby, one of the great things about being a synthesizer enthusiasts is being able to share your passion with other like minded people.
