Right now I have a roland sh 201, monitors, mbox 2 and was wondering what the next step should be in terms of hardware. I am probably going to get an analogue synthesizer but i’d like to know what everyone here thought first, if theres maybe something more important I should get or a different synth that is around the same price that is better. Thank you all
Personally I would go for the Red Square, simply for the patching capabilities.
If you would like to start with an easier analog synth you should look at some ‘normal’ vintage mono synths like the Moog Prodigy/Micro/Rogue, Sequential Pro One, Roland’s old SH synths…
For a new analog mono synth I can recommend the Moog Little Phatty, it’s not that expensive and it’s a great sounding synth to work with.
Sounds a bit like a beefed up MS20 to me, plus, built in sequencer which should sync to Renoise easy enough
Not really checked out the Red Square, looks interesting - dammit, thought analogsolutions were selling racked 808’s for £399!
I don’t know what’s best. You can either spend quite a bit of money on something really flexible, like a semi-modular, or just get two different synths which cover lots of bases… I get by with an MC202 and a Pro One for most things. If I got a Moog I’d be complete
Studio Electronics do some of the best quality modern analogs you can buy
