Hey guys, before i say anything i should point out that i don't know much about synthesizers, more than you average joe, but still very little in the grand scheme of things. I've had a mess around on a synth that a friend of mine has a few times, so i know i want one, but thats it!
Anyway, i've played guitar and bass in a few bands over the last few years, currently at uni having a crack with another band and we're interested in having a play with a synth! Its nothing that serious at the minute but you know how things progress... anyway like i say, we're after synth so we can have a crack at some meaty bass and just general downright cool noise i've heard coming out of these electronic beasties on this site and over at bluesynths!
the requierements are quite simple, a nice thick analog-ee sound, with some room for some distortion and purcussive fx, as well and nice easy layout so that i/we can teach ourselves and have some fun for now. I've tried to ingest as much info as i can from the net but thats no competition for someone who knows what they're talking about saying, "now what u wanna getcha is...!"
Now i'm not saying i want one of these (though i do), but when i was trolling through blue synths, this synth caught my eye (and ears):
According to bluesynths this is a super rare beasty and its got a touch keyboard (hella lame), BUT even i can understand the layout on it and the sounds are really great, nice and simple but really cool! So can anyone think of a synth that reminds them of this?
Sorry if is this is the wrong thread, or board, or world, to post this question on, but i would appreciate the advice.
ok, for that list:
1) max price....not sure, we're poor students, but we are dedicated to our cause, so, 3 figures tops...under £400 i guess, we're only experimenting for now...maybe you could give us a range of price options from the chep o th' cheap, up to £400
2)i dunno you tell me..
3)sound.... we're still working that out, but i guess you could say we're going for a sleazy electronic sound, but with the swagger and balls of rock... hey thats good...
4)keyboard is priority
let the stone throwing commence.
thanks in advance,
