Name the synth



People seem to love these kind of quizzes so I thought I'd throw one together. Only effect added was a tad of reverb.

i'm no pro and have only used an ion out of that lot so i don't think i'll be guessing, but i'd be shocked if that's what it is.

very pretty.

I'll go with the Ion. Sounds a little too perfect - but don't hang me if I'm wrong! :)

scratch that, since it's the sore thumb i won't be too surprised if that was the point.

I'm not going to call any kind of certainty here.
But I'd have to guess Ion or ObxA.

If forced to guess between those two, I suppose I'd lean towards the OBxA

I might be putting my foot in my mouth, but I'd be shocked if it wasn't an Ion. The sound seems to lack upper end dynamics. It also sounds kind of muffled and one dimensional. Might be the reverb though. :?

You mean OB-X? I don't own an Xa. All of the synths I've listed I own or have on loan for a day or two (ion).

I will spill one thing right now though, It's not an Ion. I sort of threw that in there to be funny and throw off the trail. So I removed Ion from the poll.

Bear in mind I'm only on crumby little laptop speakers, but regardless of what it is, it reminds me a lot of the sounds I get out of my CSs.

I voted OBX. Sounds woody and discrete so if its not the OB than my second guess would be the CS. Lovely sound.
