Synthesizers

trivialBetaState, in Analog vs digital vs software. What's your preference and why?

I love them all but my answer has to be digital.
Whenever I look into buying a new synth, I am always attracted by the features and complex sounds of the digital synths vs the pure sound of the analogue synths. Of course, I have plenty of plugins on my GNU/Linux DAW (Ardour) but I feel better and enjoy more playing a hardware digital synth and then finish (if I ever finish) my music on the DAW.

If I want to have fun, I play with the hardware, If I want to finish the track I use whatever will take me to the result I want faster. Mostly it comes to combination of hardware and software. And yeah, I'm not religious about analogue vs digital. In some cases analogue is better, in others digital

I wish I could twiddle more with knobs but I'm just a student so digital is the only option I have really

technologicalcaveman,

After I graduated and started working, I started just pooring money into synths non stop. Before that though I was deep into software.

software because I'm a dirty poor.

I love knobs as much as the next guy (gigity) but I priced my last VCV patch for real hardware and it was mind numbingly expensive, like Bezos would think it was a bit much.

technologicalcaveman,

Fair enough. I have a few analog synths and they're fantastic, but the endless options in software is appealing.

I'm hoping to get a moog before old stock gets burned out. This was a huge bummer to hear.

Sadly feels like this is inevitable for any independent companies, especially if they are competing at a big enough scale. Hopefully they continue to develop exciting instruments (the last few years have had some killer releases), but I worry the most passionate designers will jump ship if the writing is on the wall...

Badabinski, in Venetian Snares goes hard

That's... A lot of kit. I wonder if he's still using renoise, or if he's switched to a different sequencer. His music convinced me that 7/4 was awesome and that I was incapable of writing anything in it.

I bet the prices wont change but the quality sure will.

Hi! I've been thinking of posting a track I made on the Microfreak since I never got around to sharing it on Reddit, but I've been a bit too lazy. Anyone else have a Microfreak?

I don't have any arturias products but feel free to start a thread about them!

cousteau,

I have a Microfreak and really love how immediate and playful it is. Generally I prefer to run it through my modular, so I can run it through effects. Pairing the Microfreak with something like a Zoom MS-70 seems like a no-brainer and would make for a super versatile setup. Especially when you consider how affordable that is as a setup.
