Guess the synth! (and the winner is...)

Post by Micke » Tue Nov 18, 2008 10:09 pm

Hi there synth aficionados

Here's an audio excerpt from a piece of electronic music that I like a lot. Try to see if you can figure out what synth was used in the making of this track.

Let the guessing begin :)

cheers,
Micke

None of the synths mentioned this far is correct

Keep 'em coming! (but please, only one guess per VSE'er)

cheers,

Yes, pretty good stuff. I'll reveal what it is as soon as someone guesses the right answer.

I thought it was a CS-80 myself...

I second Spooky for a moog. Why not a multitracked mini ?

My vote's on a Moog. Perhaps multitracked mini as Stalla said.
