Analogue polysynth?

Post by pottolom » Tue Apr 22, 2008 7:32 pm

Hi

I'm currently trying to purchase an "all analogue" setup. I want an SH101, something like a TR707 and a basic polysynth.

Something like a Juno or JX 3P would be good, but ideally it'd be something smaller (similar size to the SH101). An arpeggiator and/or basic sequencer and some way of hooking it up to the SH101 and JX 3P would be good..... I know that the 707 and 101 can be linked together.....

Does anyone know of a Polysynth that could achieve the above? Can any of the Junos or the JX 3P? Or even better does anyone know of something smaller......?

can't think of any analog polysynth that's as small as a 101.

Which is as digital and sample-based as it gets ;).
similar size to the SH101
A Korg Poly 800 isn't that big.

(well, you want an analog polysynth. Those are big for a reason. Unless you go the virtual analog route, of course).

novation bass station

(I'd laugh if you complained of the DCOs after the TR-707 being in your list :P )

I thought the bass station was monophonic?

Ah, but Thomas could own a Bass-Station with the exclusive 'Hilary Klinton UberKnickaz' mod which adds polyphony, along with sub-octave ego boost and the contrived stage performance mode.

Alternatively, he might be talking out his nether regions.

how about a sequential circuits six trak?
I cant say I've ever seen one in the flesh but synthmuseum has the size as : 28" x 12" x 4 1/2" - which aint too big.
They seem a pretty decent synth too from what reviews and stuff I've read. Arpeggiator, simple sequencer (up to 800 notes) AND MIDI too.

Or what about a rackmounted synth if keys are not important?

Funny, my Mono/Poly is actually larger than most my other keyboards including my DSI Prophet'08. I think he was looking for a "small" synth, right?

in that case, go v/a.

i dont think ive seen a polyphonic analog synth that meets all of your standards.

if you were willing to get something a little bigger, you'd have a few options. not many though.

As for as analogue poly synths go, they don't get much smaller than the JX-3P.

Good point.

Both are much smaller than your typical analogue poly synth though. Even the Juno-6/60/106 range are significant steps up in size.
