Analog/Hybrid synth recommendations?

Post by WinterCityWalks » Sun Dec 11, 2016 5:16 am

Looking for a good synth for more lead, higher in the mix stuff, I'd like it to be analog or hybrid, nothing fully digital.

Here are some songs with synth sounds that have my interest:





What would be a good synth for any of these types of sounds or styles? Vintage and/or modern, both I could go for.

edit: polyphonic pls

First thing that comes to mind is a DSI Evolver. The Mono Evolver Keyboard is truly a thing a beauty, and even after 6 yrs with it, I'm still finding new sounds.
Bassist, synth junkie

sorry, not really interested in monophonic synths, the polyphonic version looks really good but its above my budget.
