Synth Demos That Make You Want The Synth

Post by AnalogKid » Fri Jan 01, 2016 4:25 pm

As you know, there are a lot of synth demos out there that do a poor job of selling the synth. Did you ever come across a demo that makes you want the synth really bad?

Here's one that makes me want a Waldorf Q. When this page opens, download the audio demo titled qwerk and crank it (good headphones or speakers are a must):

Do you know of other demos that really impressed you and made you want a particular synth?

There is so much shoddy demo stuff available on the internet but these two make me lust after those instruments immediately:

It's not a product demo, but it makes me want a CS-80 and JP-4 greatly.

The bands I regularly listen to currently are why I wanted a Virus TI.

Even though about half of them actually use a virus at all anymore.
