If not, what will they have ? :shock:
"Made in PRC" label.

1.I'd probably have other things on my mind,but....Synths are not as good as real instruments,don't waste your time on them.Well,it would change the synth world...

2.Paramecium.

3.SH 101 and Yamaha GX 80. Strap that on and walk around with it...

4.The brains of executed criminals.
Currently plugged in to the mixer :
Korg EA1,Korg MS10 and some shortwave radios.

Might need a little help with this one.
The greatest thing we ever have is the will to survive.

1.If you were to die in a couple of minutes, and you could tell all the people one truth about synthesizers and synthesis, something that could change the synth world for better, what would that be ? :shock:
The beauty is not in the result, it's in the process.
2.If you were able to manufacture your synth in shape of an animal, which animal would your synth have the shape of? :shock:
Praying mantis or stick insect.
3.If your synths could have children, which two synths would you crossbreed to bear you a new synth-species? :shock:
I'd borrow my friend's CS80 to mate it with my Nord Modular G2. :twisted:
4.Do you think that in future synths will be so advanced and patterned after humans that they will have intestine inside instead of boards ? :shock:
That would be good. No more painstakingly searching for replacement chips. A couple of stomach pills and off you went.

This is a good question. We could go into two directions observing current trends in technological progress.

There could be increasing miniaturization, unification and simplification of interface and functionality of synthesizer with simultaneous decreased in size and enormous increase in synthesizer possibilities. At some stage in would enter nanoscale and become a part of the body. It could be implemented subdermaly or in the larger scale - as a biocybernetic augmentations. We would potentially create number of new science areas like synthgenetics, biocybersynthesis, and even trans-biocybersynthesis (with the use of genes from other species to grow synthesizers on our bodies, that would not be only based on our nucleic acid). Interface would become integral with neuronal network. Programming would be purely based on complicating the entire sensation from environment and transferring it through numerous neuronal filters. Therefore, every action in reality would create a new composition, recorded on infinite gigabytes of memory integrated with nanoneurosynthesizer. Nano-neurosynthesizer would also use a brain as an alternative backup memory.

There could be growth in the size and the scale of future synthesizer. This is less possible option, but not completely impossible. The idea would be to use a synthesis potential in the large scale objects. The ultimate point would be to make a synthesizer from a planet. By using a physical properties of the planet, it would be used as an oscillator. There would be a number of detectors installed on the planet and on the near orbit of the planet, to process a signal. Those systems would be tuned to the signal and would transform it into sound, that would be processed and unified on the based of chaos algorithms. The system would be a planetary virtual modeling synth.

Worthwhile keys have velocity, aftertouch, and release velocity.
Ultra worthwhile keys have velocity, polyphonic aftertouch, and release velocity.

Leopard - spots are pads. Zebra - stripes are keys.

Kawai K5000 and Andromeda

No intestines.
They'll be empty because they're capable of picking up atmospheric vibrations and transforming them into sounds.
