What Synth?

Post by djstyleee » Tue Sep 07, 2010 2:28 pm

Alright VC, I am a big hard dance fan especially the old german hard dance that used to be massive back in the mid 90's from labels such as EDM (Cocooma, Atomic Junkies), ZYX Music, Space Flower etc. I am after getting hold of a couple of the vintage synths utilised around this time by such hard dance artists. However, this was long before my time and I am not sure on which ones would have been most popular for theis style of music at the time?

Few links for a general idea:





loving loop listen to the fat bass



Any of the old skool on here could point me in the right direction would be much appreciated :-)

Hard Style, Hard Trance, Hard Dance, they all make me rage. Never have I heard electronic music whose beat and energy was so forced and incoherent. There are no build ups, no interludes, just four on the f**k floor. YOU ARE ENERGETIC YOU COKED/METHED OUT JUNKY, SO DANCE LIKE YOU ARE TRIPPING!!!!

As far as that goes. I would get a big beefy sampler. Go buy yourself an MPC5000 and load it up with 12-bit samples of as many 808 kicks that you can find. Then a JP8080 or Access virus B or C. Anything with a supersaw and an appreggiator will work.

MoPho is a modern day synthesizer which can do the basslines for less than vintage equivalents.
