An all around syth to get those sounds?

Post by Antares20 » Thu Feb 16, 2012 5:33 am

Hello masters!

I am looking for a good alla around synth (possiblt easy to set)

I would like to reach those sounds

Athmosphere: example
Catchy: example
Deep: example

I don't have a specific budget. The less the better

Thank you :-)

3 very different examples given. i don't have a one synth solution, but would suggest maybe looking at a few VA's like the Virus, and maybe a Waldorf Blofeld, etc.

It sounds like you are probably more interested in a workstation than synthesizer.

About half of what is in your examples is sample-based, and half is VA or analog synthesis. In order to create the full range of sound in those, you'll need both. Do you really want to try to put them all in one machine?
