Re: My (and Your) Favorite Minimoog Solos

Correct me if I’m wrong but these songs have some nice Minimoog solos, am I right? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ApGLQdebe3E https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5OvI-fbBui0 Minimoog (the cheesy 70’s portamento synths are Minimoog, right? I can’t tell) and Juno-60. This has some sort of 70’s synth on it do...

Re: Help Identifying Synths

Since around 1978, I think a Korg PS-3300 or CS-80 or Oberheim polysynth would make sense for the poly parts, some sounds also sound like a Minimoog but not exactly so maybe an ARP Odyssey Mk. I? Edit: strings sound Rolandish, maybe RS-202? Lead oboe sounds like an ARP Pro Soloist or SH-2000 Roland ...

Re: Help Identifying Synths

Sounds sort of like an Oberheim, Juno, or Prophet synth but can’t be too sure.

Re: Synths and You (the collection of opinions)

Updated Questions: 1) The synth that made you want to play music: Probably a Korg M-50 I saw a guy in a band playing. 2) Your first synth: Casio SK1 or Yamaha MX49 followed by FL Studio and now 755 softsynths and then Korg Minilogue original. 3) The synth that has surprised you most: Synth1.

Re: Help finding keyboard/synths used on Disney album

All I hear is a D-50. Probably not just that though, also something really low end like an MT-32. Sounds like D-50, DX7, M1, and MT-32. Generic early 90’s synths. The accordion sounds like a cheap Casio. It basically sounds like cheap keyboards for all those sounds, so maybe a Roland E-20 and Techni...

Re: Synth used on Corey Hart's Sunglasses at Night

The intro to Never Surrender sounds like it has DX7 marimbas, a D-50ish string pad and others.
I think the synth in Sunglasses At Night is a Polysix. I recreated the sound on Polysix Legacy, and it sounded 99% similar without delay even.

Re: What synthesizer are these?

In the 1989 ones I hear a D-50, DX7 II, and S-50. The three big 80’s synths of the early 90’s and late 80’s along with the M1.

Re: Recommendation for audio interface with multiple synths.

I don’t own an audio interface, but I’ve used an Apollo in a music class with my MX49 and it worked great.

Re: Help me recognize a synth

Looks like a transistor organ. My guess is from the 70’s.

Re: Should I buy a Synth?

Those do sound like synths in those songs. I’d rather recommend a DAW and some free VSTs. Timecop1983 also uses a Juno-106. A lot of the sounds your hearing come from the Roland Juno-series synths and Yamaha FM synths. If your looking for those sounds on a tight budget, I’d say look into a PC or iPa...

Re: Can anyone recommend me some free VSTs?

The only problem is the K Brown ones don’t have presets, and I’m very reliant on presets.

Re: Is there such a thing as too many soft synths?

I have over 600, close to 700 VSTs, mostly free and some commercial. I don’t think its too much.

Re: How is this synth sound made?

Not really my kind of music, but I’ll answer anyways. Sounds like an FM sound. It’s super clean, so probably something like FM8. The brass chord parts after are also FM and very clean sounding. I’m not sure how to program it since I have little experience with FM, but it has glide on it. Check out D...

Help me find these FM (?) sounds?

In this song from 1996. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bcyPR0sdLUs&t=5 The sound is pre-1990s, and probably FM at that. I know the flute in the intro is from the Proteus/2. Is that sound from a Proteus or a Yamaha FM synth. The same FM synth is also used in this song from 1990 for the piano chords. h...
