Anyone know what this synth is?

Post by andrew13 » Sat Jan 10, 2009 8:02 pm

I can't work out which synth this is in the video. Can anyone else?

M-Audio oxygen 49, Microkorg, Alesis Micron.
I only wish I could own a Clavia Nord lead 2.

Yup - lovely monosynth and capable of some mad sound FX too. Quite rare in white - most were grey (last one mono Roland made??) - Seriously... if you wish to purchase one - make sure you look in the battery box as they are notorious for battery leakage causing corrosion well beyond the battery contacts.

Cheers Dan, Hideaway Studio.

They were never originally made in white. That's a custom job from Custom Synths in the UK.

Cheers guys. They seem to be quite rare and thus expensive though. Cheers anyway ^-^

I suppose im rather lucky, im in a rock band and am the lead instrument, even in-front of the Guitars. My Andromeda and W-30 are THE sound of my band, we sound like a cross between Gary Numan and Duran Duran with a bit of U2 thrown in.

Being a keyboard player in a rock band is nothing but helping the other members into the right style of music!

i don't know. i know my sounds are featured prominently in our songs. i just feel that --- for example --- if we were to make a video, i feel like they'd rather just leave me out of it entirely. like it's the keyboard they want -- but they are so "rock-n-roll" that they couldn't actually show someone playing it. you know? who knows -- maybe they'd even but the synthesizer in the video and just not film me. who knows.
