    Ok, so this seems like it might be a tougher job to do than to buy one but I don’t have the money for the synth so I stumbled across a DIY Analog Synth.

    This one might be interesting.

    Hey if you like the quality of analogue you might check out these two synths.
    They are said to be comparable to the Virus TI, which is an industry standard.

    these are the two best sounding synths that I’ve ever heard from software. Just awesome…
    You might check out the demos. These are a lot better sounding that albino, NI stuff, and Logic’s stuff. A thought before you spend a lot of cash on analogue.

    Well i’m looking not at VSTs but at some studio hardware like bolt synths, analog modulators, maybe a more new age synth when I get the money.

    (first post here)

    I can vouch for sylenth1….Its my primary vst, and i get some amazing sounds from it.

    but i think the OP wants the warm anolouge sounds,

    i suggest circuit bending… thats about as analouge as it get, and its very fun, and quite simple… basically its just cracking open something that makes noise, and messing with the circut boad, and if your good, you can install toggles and such.
    i do it and its awesome haha!

    technically the Virus isn’t an actual analog synthesizer but virtual analog synth. Its an analog in respect to being a hardware synthesizer but still uses digital electronics. The links that Lai posted are analog modular synths by the looks of it.

    Ya I know that the virus is digital brained and all, but that seems to be what everyone is using. Has anyone tried putting a soft synth through a dynamic convolution plugin like nebula 3? That piece of software is supposed convolution, but for more than reverbs. This goes for eq, compressors, preamps, speakers, reverbs, and all sorts of stuff. I would say that convolution is the future of vintage hardware sound, maybe I’m wrong, but convolution reverbs sound completely awesome and are about 150 times cheaper than hardware units. You guys might check out liquidsonics reverberate. They have a free one that is great and one that is even better for $50. I’ll probably put up a video describing it.

    Yes. They are pretty amazing pieces of equipment aside from spending 2500+ on a moog.

    Ive done that with a spare interface and a power amp. It could have exploded but I pretty much made a oscillator.

    Risking your life for awesome audio :shock: now that is dedication!
    :mrgreen:

    By they way tc electronic Novation v-station is also very, very, awesome.

    Yeah. I think i’m just going to go for a Dark Energy by Doepfer. Its a bit smaller. Or maybe a Radius. That might work a bit better for what I’m looking for.
