There's no rules as to what sounds you can & can't use beyond the basics that define a style... First, and number one priority is The Groove!!... Nothing is going to matter soundwise if the groove aint happening, so this is our first tip....

LEARN TO PLAY DRUMS!

Nothing is going to improve your tracks more... NOTHING... and you'll probably have alot of good times, and meet some cool people.... Just get your arse out of the house, and go and join a percussion workshop..... learn to play Djembe, conga, bongos... any hand drums, because all the rhythms from the drums, bass, synths etc is just drum patterns but with other features like pitch.

THE SOUNDZ

Next come the sounds themselves... There are loads of requests from people on the newsgroups....

"WHAT IS THE BEST DANCE SYNTH/MODULE ?"... or.... "Is the VD303 pro quality?"..

And they are bollox questions really.... What the hell is "Pro quality".....or a "Dance module" ??......Hmmmmm !

There are definately sounds you do need, like 909 style thumping kiks for house etc or mebbe 'typical' garage drum sounds, but beyond these standard sounds there comes originality, and that can be achieved without spending a packet....

So... basically, styles have usual or 'typical' sounds which identify the style!.... What we need is to get a good compromise between the sounds that are particular for a style, or what people want to hear, and some originality to go with it....

So yes in a way, there are modern "Dance" synths, but... If we all end up using them, think about it?.... What will make your sound different to others??..... So when we say "Dance synth", we mean a synth with versatile sounds for styles, and not too much orchestral stuff!

SYNTHESIS TYPES - THE SONIC WEAPONS

The weapons available can be devided into 4 types.... these are the basis for all the dance sounds you hear... It's probably good to have one of each type if working in hardware OR in software now that FM, Additive & Subtractive, wavetable etc styles of synthesis are available in s/w plugin form to be played and controlled in real-time with decent fast computers costing 500 quid or so.

ANALOG SYNTHS

This covers all the mono and polysynths up to about the late 70's early 80's... They use analog oscillator curcuits to create basic raw waves... these are then manipulated with filters, envelopes, modulation etc... The great thing is they have so much control source in the form of knobs and/or sliders and wheels etc... that they are a players dream... because they were played by players... people who had migrated from Hammonds, Rhodes and other players instruments.

The trademark of the analog synth, is a very fat warm upfront sound & some tuning problems on some models.

Famous Analog synths include: Rolands Juno 106 & the Jupiter6, the Moog Prodigy & the Minimoog, Roland's tb303, mc202, SH02, sh09, sh1000 & sh2000, Sequential Pro-one & prophet5, Arp Odyssey, korgs monopoly & polysix etc.

If you don't want to spend a bucketful of money on old vintage kit, you can try Novation's Basstation range, ControlSynthesis' Deep Bass 9, Syntechno, Access virus, etc etc etc...

DCO SYNTHS

DCO's or Digital Control Oscillators came along in the late seventies, ofering more tuning stability than the Analog VCO's..... They are sometimes classed as Analog synths (especially by those wanting to sell them !!)......Yet they sound different.....cleaner, and less upfront & harsh......The Roland JX3P or the MKS module range were classic examples, as were Korgs DW stuff, ....they are cheaper to buy nowadays that true Analog gear, and can be real cool to use....Later models like the Ensonique stuff were very popular with people like Adamski.... Most later DCO synths included Ring Modulation, which allowed them to start making Glassy pads and transparent FX pads....

FM SYNTHESIS

Then along came Yamaha, and blew the world away....FM or Frequency Modulation Synthesis, introduced the Algorithm......The best way to describe it, is as a series of building blocks....the contents of which can change and interact with each other....The raw sound waves for FM are digital waves...these are then tweaked and modulated.......The Yamaha DX7 changed the music business almost overnight......Suddenly, keyboard players could get passable real piano, strings and other instrument impressions at the flick of a switch.....FM synthesis was the first step outside of sampling to reproduce real instruments and other cool sounds to an acceptable standard......FM synths from Yamaha come with 4 or 6 Operators......The operators each contain a DCO, envelope, filter etc...

These FM synths are the foundation of House, Garage, original Chicago Techno and alot of other styles.....Your sound arsenal will not be complete without one......They do all the cheezey little organ sounds....harp type patches.....tuned percussive stuff.....solid & hollow basses etc etc....

Models to look for are listed via the Budget Synth Button....4 Operator stuff like the DX100 mini-keyboard...the FB01 module....and the best of the lot, the TX81Z (8 part multi-timbrel !!)....Then of course you have the 6 Operator DX7, TX802 rack etc.....But the 6 Operator stuff doesnt sound so cheezey......

SAMPLE SYNTHESIS

The next step came with the introduction of the Roland D50 synth, as featured exclusively on "Man in the Mirror" by Micheal Jackson/Quincey Jones, and it blew the rest away subjectively. This time the raw waves for processing were actual samples of instrument attack transients, like the Flute "Chiff" sound on Man in the Mirror. These attack waves were then combined with Digital fundamental tones to produce the sustain part of the sound. They produced more believable pianos, strings, etc.

The D50 quickly found favour with the house producers for it's harsh up-front piano sound, and it's lush strings... Other models from other manufacturers soon followed.

Sample based synths or Samploid/PCM synths have reigned supreme for most of the time. These are your source for the truly wierd and wonderful. They also usually contain lots of Sawtooth, Square & Sine waves and can produce pretty cool analog impressions too, although the sound is cleaner and less harsh that a real analog. So these synths can either do the lot, if you can get into programming them, or can be a compliment to the more upfront basic synths. They are great for all chewns and especially good for atmospherics & imitations of strings, saxes, pianos etc as well as ambient pads and other noises and evolving stuff.

Of these types, my favourite is the Korg Wavestation, because it's the most different soundwise... Some early cheapies include the D110 & 220 from Roland, most of the Kawai range etc... Star Top-range sample synths include models like the Kurzwiel K Series range and the famous Roland JV1080.

ANALOG MODELLING SYNTHS

Analog modelling was introduced commercially with the Swedish Clavia "Nord Lead" synth which was embellished with a "NO SAMPLES" logo just to rub in the point... These synths use mathmatical software calculations of some kind to mimic the classical analog waves. They were typified in the early days by very limited multi-timbrelity and low polyphony... For example, the Roland JP-8000 will only give 2 parts multi-mode... In other words, in a midi set-up, you can only have it play 2 sounds at a time... Since then analog modelling has come on in leaps and bounds with typical modern units such as the classic Novation Supernova or Virus offering full on multi-timbrality and large polyphony.

These Analog modelling synths definately do sound more upfront & raw than sampled analog wave synths... Other Analog modelling synths include the Novation Drumstation & Basstation & Quasimidi 309... Soon after hardware Analog modelling synths hit the market we saw software based analog modelling synths appearing in plugin form such as the excellent Rebirth RB-338 from Propellorheads, or the Rubberduck Synth from D-Lusion... Both available from the reviews here in the "Synth Section".

SOFTWARE SYNTHS

They have come of age in the last few years over the turn of the millenium and now in 2008 with cheap powerful PC's & Mac's possible for a modest outlay, these are becoming more and more the norm people use, especialy as crack versions are so easy to come by online - Other benefit's over hardware are easier interfaces using big screens, saving of presets with your sequencer songs, and with a decent asio or whatever soundcards you can play them all in realtime, just like playing a hardware module from another hardware synth-keyboard in a hardware setup.

The downside is lack of portability ease, potential lesser stability/robustness if taken to play live gigs which relates to the first downside of portability too... Also, hardware has that 'something' about it - Another pain is hardware controller setup - but with hardware controllers becming more common & easier to use you can get that sorted with a variety of makes and models and more to come.

Rolands Juno & Jupiter range are dco-synths. At least the ones I own. To make a distinction between "true" analog synths and these type of synths is not very relative, especially if you get it wrong!

Hey! Where's the entries for the Roland Alpha Juno/MKS-50 and the Super JX(JX-10)/MKS-70 synths? These are great synths for dance music, but no mention in the synth section of this site.

These synths can be heard on many pro techno/trance recordings and can be bought second hand for cheap.

Lets get some coverage of these monsters.... :-)

I love the new sounds of Roland synths,
but they're made so cheap now. I had an
MC-303 groove box and it fried in about 1one year. I just wish Roland would still make the old heavy metal box's that they used to...but don't we all.

Hi, I'm a beginner dance music producer using only my computer and a couple of software apps. I'm looking for the best synthesizer for under $1000 that has a lot of techno-oriented instruments, as well as easy to use. What synthesizer should I get or what make should I be looking into?

If you have a good computer. P2 > 400Mhz, you really only need Rebirth 338(everybody knows this) and DREAMSTATION (from audiosimulation). With these two there just isn't anything you can't do!!!
The DS is a software virtual modelling synth that allows samples to used as the source for the oscillators. I used the Nord lead 2 for a year, and now after a month of using the DS, i've got SOOOOOO much better sounds!!!

Can anyone compare the nova and the virus who's played with both? I'd like to get one, but can't choose which. I've also been thinking of bagging my sh-101 for a juno60 or 106. Any opinions on either of these, in comparison?

I'm a DJ that recently got into production. I'm looking for a unit with huge drum and synth sounds for breakbeat production. I looked into novation but the sounds in the demos on their site were pretty lame. If anyone can help me find a reasonably priced way to get sounds like Crystal Method, Cirrus, and Prodigy (for lack of better examples) please e-mail me. Thanx

The Jupiter series synths by Roland were VCO, not DCO as Paul states up higher in september. The Juno six was Roland's first DCO synth I believe....By the way, my fav synth is the Jupiter 6. Its analog, but more musical then many of the older analogs before it. Plus, it looks great and sounds fat and rich. And it has midi too!! The JP 8000 is awesome too.

The DJX is awsome. Apprently somebody doesnt know how to use it to its full extent. All those effects, all those synth sounds, those neat knobs. Its like a lite version of the CS1x with sampler capability. Sampler does suck though, with memory in the kilobyte range and telephone quality recording it really blows. But everything else rocks on it.

I'm a DJ and I want to creat my own track. I have a MC-505, RM1X and a PC running Cubase VST, Rebrith, Acid. But I don't like the sound of MC-505 cause it like a toy, and the sound of RM1X was not suitable for me. (I'm into making Tidy Trax and Tripoly Trax's style dance music.)I've been thinking of buying a Quasimidi Sirius because I need the beat match function for auto beat counting and match the external audio source, but I've heard the demo cd of the Sirius was very techno and electro. I'm worry Sirius also not good for my style, I'm looking for a hardware is easy for use and the sound can suitable for my style, I don't want to waste my money anymore. if anyone have any good suggestions for me, please send me an e-mail. Thanks!

ATTN: The Juno series may be DCO's, but the Jupiter 4/6/8 were ALL VCO synths--even if the JP6 used CEM 3370's in the voice architecture.

I make a special hybrid of Acid Trance Dance music with a hardcore beat. I've gotten several expensive software synths (Rebirth, Dreamstation, others). But I found that the free ones were the best (Hammerhead, Orangator). They provide a much thicker and harder sound in the proper hands, like mine.

mmm...Why is the Nord Modular not in the Synth List. It's a great synth
You can make any sound out of it.

kawai k5000r,
just picked one up last week. my first impressions are good as they are with any new synth. a few too many organs and pianos in the presets. i have started some programming, you can get results by modifiying the presets quite quickly. i have made a few sounds up from scratch, the results take a little time and arent always what you think they should be.i put this down to learning the system. i hope you all know this is an additive synth? if not i will try and explain another time as i am only giving first impressions here. there are a very large number of parameters to adjust but kawai group quite a few of these to speed things up. navigation is fine as long as you can remember some of the abreviations. the filter and amp are as expected. the effects work in a similar way to the emu proteus racks. the sounds are just great, the presets give you slowly evolving pads but i soon sped these up. the envelopes are not the quickest. the filter is either low pass or high pass but you can combine up to 6 "mini synths" to make one voice so you can make the combination you want. the filter is an extra here has you build the sound you want via the additive engine and you also have a 128 band formant filter- dont ask. this with the additive engine make an enormously powerful synth. it has a unique sound- no it really does. this is the polar opposite to your average s+s workstation and far the better for that. it isnt a dance specialised unit (no midi sync to the lfos etc) but a very very powerful synthesiser which can be used very effectively for dance. more to follow.

Hey,
I just got a Yamaha DjX and it's excellent! I'm just a beginner with Keyboards (since I used to just use the MTV Music Generator). I would like to become a Dream Trance/Dance musician but like I said, I'm no good at making my own stuff. So if someone could help me out or somethin', I would deeply appreciate it! Thanks!

Hi pro-bods. I'm new to the game, I have a cs2x syth, akai 28001 sampler digitech s100, mc303, behringer composer pro, 6 channel behringer mixing desk, PC running Cubase VST 3.7, Rebirth 2.0 and Vaz Modular. Up until visiting this site I was putting everything into Cubase as recorded wav files, giving shit results. I was just simply arranging wav files on screen. Now I know this is wrong, and I have to set up the midi channels to run the outboard hardware. Any industry bods with a few spare minutes wanna send me down the right track to actually properly putting a track together?? I'm making funky house and my disco samples on the Akai are central to my work, and I am looking at releasing my stuff on White Label (I'm a DJ and have alot of creativity, but simply no production brains!)

I really want to get started in making trance dance (Astral projection, MWNN, x-dream style..etc.). I'm on a tight budget so I'm thinking of spending about $1000 Canadian to get started. What I basically want is a good synth which has everything I need to get started with. Please give me some pointers on which synth to get. Also, a link to a site which explains all the components and their uses of techno gear would be very helpful.

mixmastercid... i have a jx305
The sound patches are editable and there are lots of deadly sounds. there's a lot of hollow fm type sounds but the good ones make up for it.
Most of the bass's are thin sounding but there are a few good ones aswell.
There are plenty of drum sounds and drum kits, and the inbuilt sequencer is perfect for creating a basic idea of how the track is to sound....it's simple and quick to use.. however a proper sequencer is needed after this stage. The fx are pretty good but only one can be used at a time(besides reverb and delay). The main downside is there are only left and right outputs.. which makes outboard manipulation of any of the individual 8 channels impossible.
Still.. good sounds from it but a bit pricy. The MC-505 is the exact same except without the keyboard and a with a few more features.
I have days i regret getting it and days i couldn't be without it..

i just started making trance music. i'm looking for keyboards with big, fat sounds. there's a specific sound alot of producers use in their epic trance tracks. when the sound is filtered it sort of sounds like an arp and then when it opens it turns into a pretty synth stab/ if anyone could help me would appreciate.

I am surprised you haven't mentioned Sequential Circuits. I adore my Prophet VS, which I find FAR superior to the Korg Wavestation. Not to mention the Prophet 5, which no studio should be without.

Hmmmmm...
Someone said the Triton, it's most definitely the shiznit. It has a dual polyphonic arpeggiator- very original.
The Emu X-treme Lead one also happens to kick a lot of ass.
I am in particuar a techno-type keyist, only I also play rock and classical...
anyhow:
The Emu has 16 arpeggiators-talk about power- you could sequence an entire mix just from this one machine.
Great for someone looking for a lot but without much cash.

I'm into goa/psy and it's my favorite to create, but I feel very limited using the tools I have now (yamaha cs6x and several SAMPLE BASED progs). I've had my eye on the mc 505 for the longest time, but I just wanted to know if anyone can comment on what'd be a good addition to my equipment for goa/psy making purposes. Also, if anyone could help me out with midi and my cs6x, I'd be much greatful!

hello me, it's me again... back to my cs6x and midi...I was wondering if there's anyway with midi to do machine like sequencing with my cs6x and midi. (such as the quality of what a 505 could offer). There's a thick obvious difference between sequences and synth lines, and I'd love to rock out sequences with my cs6x via midi if possible (the only way it would be possible). You can't make user arpegio patterns...so that's out of the question...GAY!

Hey, about DJX! I own one, and if you would like to hear some sample pieces, just check my mp3.com-site. Personally I think that DJX is fine for a newbie (like me), but it lacks badly when it comes to sampling, since it has terrible sampler !

What is that one synthesiser sound that i keep hearing on 90% of trance music? It is usually the trance line or the lead line that it's mostly used. Anyone know?

Hey Jojo the dog faced,
The DJX is not comparable to the mc-303 in any way, If you own one you'll know that it is not a professional sounding instrument, but is an excellent entry into programming and sequencing electronic music, the DJx is another yamaha budget synth that has very little editing capabilty (compared to the 303, and a sequencer that is not very "Groove Friendly", minimal at best. I bought the 303 the day it was released as my first synth/sequencer, and I think anyone on a budget should pick one up just to learn from, and it will help show you what its all about. since my 505 days, I've purchase a novation drum station, juno 106, alpha juno 2/pg300, korg poly 800, jx3p/pg200, mks 30, casio cz 101,cz 1000, numerous soft synths, an alesis sr-16, and a roland mc-505 groovebox, the 505 is an excellent Professional sequencer and controller, the synthesis engine I have not found to be the sound quality that I like, but is usable if you spend a lot of time creating original sounds. But as a sequencer and a controller, I am very pleased. If you are a newbie and dont want to spend $1500 on a non multitimbral polysynth, $500 on a drum machine, $300 on a monosynth. Then buy the 303 or 505 and learn sequencing first. later

Reply to Z1 question: -

I ued a Korg Z1 in my last college and it whooped ass, the user interface is a bit slow but apart from that it's great.
I've got a supernova (the king synth in my opinion), but I'm still saving for a Z1 and Nord micro modular, anyone got any feedback on the micro modular, is the four note poly to restricting or does it still sound good with complex patches.

Check it out, a major new release of MASS the Modular Analogue Soft Synth for Win 95/98/2000. Hmmm, I know there's loads of these available already like, Buzz, Vaz, Reactor, SynC Modular etc. However the difference is that MASS is really REALLY quick and easy to use. No more mucking about with multipliers, adders, ramps etc. to even get a sound. No more holding loads of keys to just make a module connection. No more restrictions!

Check it!

OK, to all the newbies that want to create music, listen to the sound of the synth. If it sounds good to you, use it.Dont listen to people who cant even figure out how to play a synth like the djx. Its not about price, or bells and whistles of a synth, its the person playing it, retarded people make retarded sounds. Look at the old synth masters like Gary Newman, Kraftworks, Neworder, and the likes. What did they have to work with, and how did it sound. Now do you get the drift? KULTUR ( 4 of us in the states ) uses djx, juno 6, SC pro 1, and anything else that sounds good to us. We make music because we love to create, simple. If you are trying to copy a style do it with taste, add your own touch and soul. Dont imitate, create a sound to call your own. If any one questions these words, go to our site on mp3, and see what I mean. If your going to bash a synth, or a person for liking it, thats your issue. We will keep making music, and you will fade away in your fake world.

I've been playing around with music on my computer using trackers for a number of years, and now Im wanting to dive deeper and get some hardware. I played with the Korg EA-1, ES-1, ER-1, and Roland MC-505 in the stores. The 505, although made by the Gods of electronica themselves, I wasn't too impressed with. Maybe because it's so many things bundled together into one. Sampler, drumkit, sequencer, etc. The sound had decent bass, but it wasn't very... meaty. The Korg blew me away. It was easy to use, and the sound was absolutely phat. Nice range on the EA-1 from gritty, to meaty, to soft analog synth. The ER-1 put out some nice bass, and the midi was cool. I didn't figure out much on the midi end (didn't have any books to read at the store). The ES-1 I didn't play with as much, but the sounds were still nice and rich (what I heard anyways). Anyways, those are my 2 cents, based on a few days playing around in the music store. Oh yea... I also like the price difference between the Electribes and the Groovebox 505. :)

In responce to jason's post. I checked out your page, I think your project is talented, a track like shiek would definitely get me on the dance floor. But I think you got a little too easily offended by my "F the DJX post". The DJX is a toy, you can buy them at best buy for fucks sake. if playing preset drum sounds and hitting "oooh" and record scrath sound fx while preset house beats play is your thing, then I guess the DJX is a fabulous instrument. And gary newman, kraftwork and new order all used synths that are sought after majorly today, so your comment on them about the instruments they used was not a very appropriate one. I use a yamaha cs6x synthesizer, a roland mc 505, and several computer programs. no matter what, if you slap an electronic instrument in front of someone who isn't talented, they're not going to be able to do very much with it. I started 8 years ago with a yamaha pss toy keyboard, different machines are capable of different things, and the DJX just does not reach the profesional level any serious electronic music maker is looking for. I'm sure you'd prefer several machines over it but it's what you have so you're making the best of it. A year and a half ago I was performing with a psr 530, a korg X3, and a casio cz1000. I love making music, but these machines just do not have the status I need to feel unlimited, either does the DJX. hopefully I didn't come off offensive in anyway, that was far from any motive I had. I like your music and respect your opinion, but I'm sure you'd be willing to trade your djx for my cs6x any day!

yo the 505 don't have a sampler on it derost, and roland aren't the gods of electronica anymore, they fired the person who mad the 909 n 303...and i'm sure the 101/202/808/jupiter creators are gone now, although the jp8000 does sound nice^_^, the ES1 will sound as good as the sounds u put into them, but the sampler specs are low, don't get groove boxes, they're bad stuff, if u want to make tracks get real gear, but if u wanna just make it a hobby, go for the groove stuff i get, go for hte rm1x in particular, great sequencer, you can use it still when u want to go more pro...also check out http://www.sonicstate.com/news/shownews.cfm?newsid=295 for a new rm1x/su700 hybrid, which should b good.^_^

Thanks for the reply Sean, and yes, we would be glad to trade you one of our djx's for a cs6x, I recommend that keyboard to any up and comming, or established musician. In regards to your post, we all have our ideas, no offence taken. You are right about the electronic " TOYS " , to use them for the preset beats, and the pre-sampled effects would be sad. But on the other hand there are sounds and effects that these toys do so well, and ran through an effects processor even does more. But it does take some skill, as you stated. Like the cz101, at on time was considered a toy, now its a very sought after relic, ( I want one, LOL ). If any one is searching for this, and other classic synths, you can find them in abundance on ebay. I picked my juno 1 up for under 200 US dollars, and it was in perfect condition. By the way Sean, do you have any of your tracks on the net? I would like to listen to them, as you gave us a nice critique, I am curious about your style. Thanks for the listen again. Talk to you peeps soon, bye.

Oh, forgot to say in the last post, I love Neworder, they are my all time favorite band, and a big influence to my music. My comment on them ,kraftwork and Gary was a compliment to their ingenuity. They had to deal with real anolog synths that went out of tune, had to warm up, and were tempermental. ( whew, are we not lucky? ) But the sounds and music they created are still heavenly to my ears. I guess what I am trying to say is, its too easy to get caught up in the " HOT " new gear craze. Dont let it drown the originality and soul of the music you create. Thanks, see ya!

In response to "poop dawg": The 505 is based on synthesis, how many sample based SEQUENCERS do you see with synth engines? You can link a 505 up to any sampler (or computer with a sample based sequencing program) via midi and sync the tempo; having the patterns from both machines start at the same time by pressing play on one...And the 505 was brought out well past the time of the 303 and the 909. So if anything that statement about their creator being fired would relate to progression in roland gear design. Sample based music is limited when it comes to thick sound design and especially tweaking. You can hardly ever get away with thick punchy, morphing synth sounds when working with strictly sample based machinery (I did say MORPHING), even if you sampled the sound from a machine that this is capable of, which I've learned from experience. I'm not content with it, I've been doing it for years and still feel limited, so I got a 505 to brighten things up. If the music you make is along the lines of house, hiphop gabber, or d&b that mainly focuses on the beat, then you should have no problem coming up with acceptable music with a sampler. But for complex sound editing and design, synthesis is a must have. A few artists off the top of my head (bypass unit, astral projection, and the industrial scenes kevorkian death cycle) all use the 505 and are concidered to be on a very professional level. I've played the exact same pattern on my cs6x, and sampled the sound, programed the same sequence on my comp, and gotten horrible results compared to the original. I do not take any particular liking to one companies machines and never bosted about roland having great gear and I do resent the name "groovebox" being on a machine I love very much, but never the less, its' mainstream name has nothing to do with what the 505 is capable of. ::NUFF SAID::

What keyboards of today do you think produce the sounds closest to the Prophet 5, and OBX of the early 80's.
Nords?

colaboration if you're not too far away. Drop me an email and let me know
what you think.

I am lookin to produce Trance Music with killer synth sounds as well as laid back hip-hoppy organic type stuff with my guitars. Can anyone tell me what would be the best workstation for me? Right now I'm lookin at the Korg Karma station but I know there's lots more out there that could be a better fit. Any help would be great....thanks in advance!

CS6X- its a good synth but needs more FX. you can only use one fx when using 16 channels with midi. if you could put an fx to each channel the synth would be the best money can buy. but with the help of midi software you can add your own fx. in my opinion its one of the best synths made. easy to learn and use, good sounds. check out my site and my music, most of which was made with just the cs6x. 4:20

My friend wants to by a workstation or synth. He is kind of just starting to produce electronic music, so I suggested that he get a workstation--like a triton or proteous.

What do you think? He is into producing Trancy Deep House and things of the sort.

Do you think a workstation is a good idea. I think it is because it's an all in one kinda thing.

AND a sequencer isn't required.

Thanks for your time Dustin Lyday

i have recentley bought myself a korg electribe ea1 mk2. I have noticed that their are no websites dedicated to or mentioning this great little synth. their are a few in french but apart from "kellys industries" who dont really go in to much detail, theres hardly any mention of it, Why is this? and would you concider looking in to it and reviewing it its a brilliant synth for those who cant affored to spend a couple of grand on the latest piece of equitment, as its going for 160 brand new. many thanks haydn

Synthesizer
     Classics  

Here's a selection of classic & bargain dance synths

Roland JUNO 106

The famous Juno 106; something of a legend in dance music production.

Roland MC-202

Th MC-202 is a sequencer/synth unit a cheap controllable genuine Roland oldie, which can be clocked by midi-cv clock... it has plenty of realtime controllers to mess with, sorta like an SH-101 without the keys ?... well... sorta !

Roland SH101

Another of the few budget old Roland items... needs a cv clock to run the sequencer or play it live from the keys ... lots of realtime controls... a classic !

Moog MINIMOOG

THE old classic fabled monosynth

Quasimidi 309

Quasimidi are now defunkt, but this unit sold by the hundreds of thousands, possibly millions. Lots of dance sounds and plenty of realtime control makes it an item worth looking out for in the free-ad's.

Yamaha DX100

The Infamous DX100 - This IS the one with all the presets you know & love...

Roland JP-8000

the roland synth with the unison supersaw trance sound

Quasimidi QUASAR & TECHNOX

Quasimidi are now defunkt. These two synth & drumsound rackmodules now free-ad classics. Musch rated by owners, these units were some of the first 'dance' orientated synths on the market

Roland TB303

the classic acid bassline synth

Access VIRUS

Now discontinued and re-released as the 'Virus Classic', this synth is a classic now as the name suggests. A much respected synth for trance and other genres and one of the first mass appeal modelling poilysynths to gain a cult following.

JEN SX1000

The Jen SX.... you see 'em alot... dont have alot of sound variety, but a nice filter.... check one out...

Roland D50

A classic old skool digital synth from Roland

Roland Alpha Juno 1

The legendary Roland Alpha Juno, bringer of the "hoover" techno sound.

Quasimidi Raven

An overlooked 90's dance synth
