Blue synths?

Post by zoomtheline » Thu Apr 28, 2011 3:19 pm

For no particular reason apart from my studio space looks messy because of the various colours around and thought wouldn't it be nice to get all I need out of equipment that's all the same colour!. Obviously this is hypothetical as I couldn't swap my gear as it's all about sound and interface but it would be interesting what I could get out of an all blue synth space.

I have a CS1x and my homemade analogue is blue but what else is out there?

I'd love an OB12, thing looks like a beast!

Before I switched to software, I swore by the Supernova 2 (rack). Way more vast than one may think!

woah, thats what I'm talking about!

I can think of a few Va's but I was struggling to think of older analogues.

Is the Sonic six blue?

I think there was a thread a year or two ago about blue synths.

There's also the DSI Evolvers,
MAM ADX-1,
Korg MS-2000 (first run)
Korg PolySix has blue background on the control panel,
PPG Wave synths,
Roland JP-8000 & 8080,
Vermona DRM-1 mk2 (some are blue and some are silver)

I think we've had a blue synths thread before... it went on for some pages!

I've got an AN1x. I think that counts as blue.

I thought about having a setup that consists of AN1x, Desktop Evolver and Electribe EMX. 3 blue synths. How nice.

MFB Synth II and Synth Lite II. I think the new Microzwerg is blue too (navy blue as opposed to royal blue).
