Bleeps and Bloops?

Post by Ezzo » Sun Jul 08, 2007 9:23 pm

What is your go to synth for bleepy-bloopy noises? I don't find the polysix or the octave cat I have to particularly excell at either sound so I was wondering what you guys use? I'm thinking about trying to aquire a Jupiter 4 with reasoning being that by the time I have enough money saved one might turn up. Maybe this thread will provide some alternatives.

What about the Sh 101? That seems like it would have some good bleeps, I always here that synth tagged as THE acid synth though

You won't get much better than the Evolver for weird stuff, it's my main "effects" unit. 2nd choice would be my EA-1

Just about any analog monophonic synth will bubble, bleep, gurgle, pop, etc. Some polys too - the Jupiter 4 and the original Junos are great for it.

I had a Yamaha CS-10 which excelled at it, and now have a Novation BassStation which will also make all kinds of filter sounds. Here are a bunch of random sounds from a Novation BassStation running through a Sony DPS-V55 effects box (118 - Magic 4ths.) The drums are from a Future Music demo disk.
