Anyone produce music electronically/play with analog synths? 
Its been a hobby of mine in the past year or so,

Man I had a full rack of PIAI synth modules back in the day (early 80's). Awesome, as I love building electronic projects. Building a tri-distortion for my guitar now.

I'm glad your back on the site DP, you feel like a kindred spirit to me!

Yeah I live and breath music.I produce electronic,ambient,dark ambient,soundscape,etc.No expert but I take what I know and do the best with that.Use Ableton live 9 and a Novation SLMKII 49 key for most production now.Going to buy Omnisphere soon so I can't wait to work with that.Began on a Roland XP80 and Korg Triton Studio 88 key.Also have a Novation Supernova 44 voice as well as an EMU Audity 2000.Hardware in storage now but I am hooked on software now and love creating my own sounds.Bought a Zoom H4n to record sounds like nature or anything really.Use these to create sounds and it's awesome.Make all tracks in the moment and are inspired by life or feelings.Good music for mushies if you like this type of music.and can't wait to give a proper listen to my new stuff,I will give a listen to anyone who produces here if you leave links.

Here is a link to mine if anyone would like to give a listen https://soundcloud.com/soulvibe-3

Peace

Ya give me a week or so and ill give you a full song :)
I have actually never finished one 100%,

I got about 7-10 at 80-90%,

there is something about finishing art that bothers me.

I need to get over it and finish the tracks.
I would like to play fractal fest this year,

so I need to finish all of them before June.

 

The type of music i make is psychedelic trance ,

i dont use sound packs and make all my sounds with synths.

So its very time consuming,

I may play with the synth, twist nobs, record for an hour,

go back and listen and sample out what sounds cool.

Its literally hours to find seconds.

This is what i love about synths,

it really is the wild west.
 

Give me a week and ill release a mycotopia theme psy trance track.

In divine friendship,

your brother,

wishy, have you ever tweaked around with Csound or SuperCollider? if you're addicted to designing your own sounds by playing with software, that stuff is the equivalent of getting the uncut dope straight from the source. steep learning curve though - you're coding rather than twiddling knobs. manipulating audio at the mathematical-algorithm level.

I have not, the soft synths I use are
 

sylenth
massive
alchemy
And a few reaktor synths, like rounds, monark, prism, scanner kt .
 
Reaktor is a build your own synth/modular set up,
you can literally build any soft  synth/instrument.
Reaktor 6 came out with blocks, 
it allows people to share their modular builds with other reaktor users,
pretty cool stuff.

I use alien303 for acid leads and the triple bass lines

I used Magix recording and efects when it was first called .....Samplitude? I forget. Some German software before all the fancy expensive stuff came out. That along with a digital delay and harmonizer was all I needed to do solo concerts for my kids schools, and write and record many tracks.

 

Everything I had burned to the ground in a huge fire, including all recordings.

 

I didn't start collecting studio equipment again. kept playing though.

Alchemy is a top favorite for me.as well as Linplug CRX4.Yeah happy4nic8r I still have my gear but lost all of my music data twice.First I moved and had all my data on floppies from my Korg Triton Studio that I was keeping at my brothers house which included 5 years worth of music.Well over 800 tracks that I had made.I make my music in the moment so I was heartbroken.I have produced much more music since and again lost my music on computer and hard drives due to lightning strike.Could not believe it happened to me again.I have a lot of tracks still but only as recorded wav files but data is gone.I am going to keep going but from now on backing up everything on drives that will be strictly for backup and then unplugged.Also looking into cloud storage.

I hear that, and second it!! It's a real bitch keeping stuff together, especially when it starts out separate. I've so often thought I was saving a track, and it grew wings and flew off somewhere, never to be found again. Then you actually have to mix it down to two tracks to play or record it on to a cd. Depending on how many tracks that was you might have some hours of work into a song that just vanishes.

Got a new toy!

Its a access virus ti2 desktop. Its a v analog hardware synth, i got the desktop version that gives all the knobs and controls like any true analog synth

Pretty much the pinnacle of hardware synths for what I do.
I have been on the look for one for about a year as I have only been using soft synths. I wanted to learn synthesis before spending this much money on a hardware synth but I am happy i did. Its next level stuff for me and my music. The difference in sound and warmth from software synths is second to none. Its also a TI which is total integration, loads in a DAW just like a vst. Has software that can be controlled via the daw and gives access to modulation at a depth that you really only find in soft synths. I put it on par with the soft synth massive in the depth of what can be modulated

Check out this mod matrix, this is what can be assigned and modulated via the matrix, let alone the 3 lfos that can be assigned separately and multiple filters

For the type of music and sound design im looking for, i dont think ill ever have to buy another synth again.
