voted! hard to chose
thanks to Pip and Evan for making this possible!
bought the orange vinyl in barcelona some weeks ago, really cool release!
thanks again guys for all the feedback, much appreciated!
just one word: awesome!
finally got my hands on this one, what an epic compilation! love it
thanks everyone for the support, really appreciate it!!
did you tried the poly 2 modus??
just spent some time on the the juno last weekend, and if i remember right, the poly 2 modus is suitable for the portamento effect.
and try out the unison modus when pressing poly 1 & 2...

oberheim matrix 12 synth and a synton syntovox222 vocoder,
last pieces of kit ill be buying for a very long time.
yeah man, congrats for this quality kit!
i own the xpander and it´s my favourite synth. it just sounds so good. i bet you´ll love the matrix. monster synth!
still looking for a low priced dynacord srv66 which is identical to the synton. best vocoder i´ve ever heard

Tell me your experiences so far. I've been searching around some demonstrations of it in the internet but still haven't found any decent. All the demos consist of odd and almost useless sounds which seems to be Waldorf's preset style. Can you get good basic analog/va -sounds out of it?
a lot of blofeld sounds here:

AH AH!! THE RAVEN!!
well imo is a shit cose was so expensive for the sound that it had , and the knob feeling was a shit aswell for me!
the point good was the sequencer!!! and it looks nice(the cover) as pro synth!
oh man, yeah that thing sounds so bad. i had it for a couple of years, it was one of my first synths. i didn´t really know what i wanted at that point, just started getting deeper into electronic music. i don´t even remember if it has any good characteristics, just know that itsounds shite, knobs are crap and i even don´t like the design.

maybe but i compare it accidentaly with blofeld , for me blofeld sounds more usefull , i respect and like moogs and their legacy but little phatty sounds fat as they claim ... maybe new mini sounds "Retro" ...
yeah, thats what i mean.
it´s a matter of taste and maybe which other gear you are using.
a friend of mine brought the blofeld to me and i had the chance to check it out for three days. it´s a great sounding synth, with a really nice price, but we had problems to fit it right in the mix.
nevertheless, great sounding little synth with endless possibilities. but not really what i´m looking for.
same here! kick and snare doesn´t really fit to the rest. i would change at least the sounds, and maybe even the rhythm. nice track though
just heard your other tracks on soundcloud. nice stuff!
i really like alien technology, but same problem with the snare in this one. sounds too lush.
seems to happen on all your tracks
just my 2 cents
#1 Quasimidi The Raven!!
totally disagree with monomachine, andromeda and little phatty being in the list of worst synthesizers!
the monomachine is a beast! not my first choice for analogue sounds of course, but it works really well for all kinds of digital, fm, noise, sid type sounds. and you easily get some serious basslines out of it. the sequencer is top notch!
here is a link where you can hear the monomachine in action. all synth sounds made with the mnm, drums with the machinedrum. no external processing.
i only had it for two days when i made this, and just scratched the surface. but it gives you an idea that it doesn´t sounds that shit all the way.
the original preset patterns are wack though.
the little phatty doesn´t sounds that rough and vitage as the old moogs, but nevertheless really good in my ears. not to forget all the advantages of a modern synth! tuning, storing, midi...
for me it def sounds fatty enough!
two 100% little phatty tracks multitracked in ableton:
the andromeda is probably the most flexible analog polysynth ever made! you can really get so many different sound characters out of this beast, no other single synthesizer is capable of.
it doesn´t sounds like a jupiter 8 or a matrix 12, rather more rough, harsh, foggy.
but wtf, it sounds awesome!
the modulation possibilities with the modulation croutes are insane.
the andromeda is a lifetime synth, and it takes time and effort to get deep into it. in return it will surprise you for many years!
the envelopes and lfo´s are the only chink. digital, not really fast and not well interpolated. but thats more like a software design bug. unfortunately alesis will probably never correct that.
but with the engine optimizer you can make at least the envelopes a bit faster for clicky, percussive sounds.
that´s just my subjective opinion, and everybody has its own.
but to put these three synths in the list is simply not fair. there are dozens of wackier synths out there.
both for drums!!
if it sounds good, i don´t care.
for 808 sounds i used the drumstation a lot back in the days, and now the acidlab miami or nepheton vst.
the sonic charge micro tonic vst is also great to emulate analog drum sounds.
it has been said before, the trick is eq´ing, compression, effects, mixing and maybe layering. i´m sometimes not satisfied with my sound quality, and really have to work on these techniques. but it´s getting better, live and learn you know.
try out what ever you want, there are no limitations.
analog for subtractive synth sounds btw
ooh, and i like cowbells
nice one LektroiD!!
many many good tracks here
they´re definitely worth the money! actually they are cheap as f*ck
