While it is true that nothing could ever truly compare to owning your very own vintage analog synth, this is unfortunately not an option for many people.

This month, we have a very exciting giveaway for our readers - courtesy of UVI. This is your chance to get a complete sound collection of 50 instruments, 111 drum machines, and over 7,000 hand-crafted presets - all created using the original synthesizers.  Ten lucky winners will receive the Vintage Vault 2 software bundle, which currently sells for $599, but will actually give you closer to $2,600 in value.

These days a lot of people think of synthesizer performances as someone lurking behind a computer and just clicking away with a mouse.

Suzane Ciani agreed to an interview and we chat about her career, her favorite synths, her successes in the advertising industry, the film that was recently made about her life and much more.  We had so much to talk about, it was impossible to summarize it all in one article, so we have been posting the interview in parts.  This is part 3, the last part of the interview.

If you love vintage synthesizers and have enough money to never worry about an empty wallet or bank account, then you could obviously build up quite a formidable collection.
