It takes a lot to make me gape, but REwire, I am gaping. :)

Jexus... This is where the Admin steps in and pics and chooses which one's will go into the forum header rotation... God-like powers? Perhaps. But I can't put up all the pics I have received or will still receive. I do try to take at least one good one from each member, but too many will burden the forum and the members. I think that's why zamise made this thread, to pre-load the pics for anyone who comes into this thread... Anyway, there are more to be added, lots more...

PS: I love the cat in mome rath's pic...

I've always liked ItsMeOnly's studio. As well as being a room stuffed with gear, I think a studio should have a relaxing environment. Unfortunately I'm an "herbicidal maniac" so no plants at Rusty Insects :(

Its interesting to see how everybody's layout choices and compromises differ.

Its also interesting to see who's using $100 monitors to listen to their $20,000 synth :shock: ;)

So it appears the most popular synths on VSE are:

MS-20
Phatty
Minimoog
Andy
PS-3100

Did I miss any?(needs at least 3 shown to make the list.)

well, judging by hse pic only yes, however, last yr we made a list with a huge number of vse members posting gearlists, and suprisngly or not.. Waldorf XT came out on top, followed by juno 106, DX etc tho this might have changed a bit since.

does anyone remember the name of that link ?

i can't find it. iirc smallsynth had something to do with aquiring data..

I see two out of all of those that appear not to have proper monitors. Perhaps there are proper monitors but not in the frame.

Is our synth-snobbery not enough?

I think the problem is that many people don't consider KRK rockits or Behringer Truths to be proper monitors... I personally am the first to admit I've been monitoring on headphones (pretty decent ones, but still headphones) as I can't afford a pair of KRK Rockit 5s just yet... I might get them for Xmas.

You've misunderstood me.

My point was that you've got a synth worth, say, 20 grand (so you've obviously got the $$$) but you won't spend a couple grand so you can actually hear what it sounds like.

The expensive-synth/cheap-monitor says to me people care more about the fetish than the sound. I've noticed this trend over and over on gear threads.

I've rarely heard a cheap set of monitors that sound flat, revealing or any good at all when compared to even the lowest-priced "pro" monitors available around a grand. You don't even need highly trained ears to hear the difference.

Thats not snobbery at all, its just saddening. :(

I haven't misunderstood.

It's no different than saying a Jupiter 8 is the better instrument than the Juno 106. Or why would a person fill their rooms with a dozen "cheap" synths when for the same price they can get a couple of "premium" synths?

And what's the difference between someone with "cheap" monitors and synths pumping out the tunes, gigging and doing demonstrable things with their equipment and someone who has a room with $30k plus worth of c**p who doesn't do anything with it but complain that it doesn't cover enough areas?

Whatever works is all. I much prefer the practical/pragmatic to anything else - which means if it's "cheap" monitors and Behringer mixers then so be it as long as the craft is being practiced with heart and soul.

Combine that nugget of disturbing truth with all the close-up "knobby profile" pics of individual synths, and you really do get the picture. It's not like I don't have any knobby/slider-laden synths myself, but somehow I just prefer to spend more of my time playing them. Go figure. :dontknow:

Yeah, actually it's (more than) enough, but methinks you'd get a bit more joy out of proper listening equipment. No sense buying a Mini for the low end only to have none of it because you're using iPod earbuds, right?

edit: Zamise, I think it'd be a good idea to re-host those pictures on an image host or something, unless the VSE bandwidth suddenly got a second wind.

edit2: whoops, when I refreshed I got a could not connect.
