Synth Porn

Recommended Posts

Here's a picture from the last show, had to move things around because i ended up sharing the keys with the guitarist on some tunes so needed more room.

Which synth does the fattest bass sounds? :)

Out of the 3 synths there, IMO the bass station does the fattest bass sound.

BUT... which is best for metal :ph34r:

Any of them through the right distortion pedal.

I used to run a Casio CZ5000 through a Boss Super Distortion and Feedbacker.

Recent purchases:

[b]E-mu Proteus 2000[/b]. 40 quid. Amazing, amazing little thing, considering it's nominally a ROMpler. But it can do so much. You could write whole tracks with it, with some very twisted noises. Countless filter types with silly made-up names. And knobs to control it, right there on the front, with a matrix for 12 controls. Yet it looks so [i]boring[/i]. Like a middle manager in a cheap machine-washable M&S suit.

I have one of these, with the Orchestral cards. Like you say, dull and utilitarian in looks, but an incredibly flexible and powerful synth. Just needs lots of flipping through tiny menus to get the most out of it.

Much synth porn here (look there's even an old Jen SX1000 at the back, I had one of those LOL).

still one of the best bits of synth porn, from Herbie's LP Sunlight

LP came with a fly sheet, explaining what each synth was....nice!

OK, I'll give it a go:
From close to distant, and left to right:

Moog Polymoog
Yamaha CP30
Arp Odyssey
Moog Minimoog
Moog Micromoog (or that other tinylittle one - name escapes me - not the Multimoog at any rate)
Hohner Clavinet (probably D6)
Oberheim Eight-Voice
unknown 4-octave thing
unknown 3.5-octave thing (though I do recognise it immediately, I have no clue)
Yamaha CS50 (I'd expect a CS80 there, but this one looks small and with one row of controls on top?)
Arp 2600

That's maxiporn!
Fond memories. I think my Philicorda was exactly like that one, or yours may even be my old one: I seem to recognise the finger wear around the knobs. :-)
Great space for a synth on top too.

I think I've alreayd commented on the Phat one on another forum.
Congrats with both!

Thanks! It's the tube version, but it didn't include the original tube amp. I replaced the weird 5-point connection with a regular jack, and when connected with my Epiphone Valve Jr, it sounds great!

Hmm, synth porn. Here's my collection of unreliable analogue antiques:



Roland TR-77, Roland Jupiter 4 and Oberheim OB-X. All with MIDI retrofits.



ARP Omni II and Solina String Ensemble Mk I.



Powertran Transcendent 2000.

Plus about a dozen other rack mounted or percussion analogue oddities such as a Syncussion and Clap Trap.

Oh my! Will the God of analogue synthesizers ever stop laughing at me? My first Saturday job as a 16 year old yoof was in 1979 at Chase Music in Manchester who were the ARP dealers. I vaguely paid some attention to the products as I sweat my teenage nads off humping those massive boxes around and setting gear up at various roadshows. And Poly/ Mini Moogs, and Oberheims....I was more interested in girls and "proper" rock and roll.....

Heh...I was actually quite into the fusion jazz scene in the mid-70s, but it would've been pretty hard to ignore the ARP stuff anyway, given that I was a factory tech for a while. Never could afford to buy one back then, but we had a pretty nice employee studio that produced a lot pf sonic mayhem after regular working hours.

Probably the the coolest thing I worked on there was building up a few [url="http://www.vintagesynth.com/arp/2500.php"]2500 panels[/url] right around the time [i]Close Encounters[/i] came out. There were only two guys in the factory who really knew how they went together, the guy who was in the movie and Al Pearlman himself. Good times...
