New Synth Toys For 2016
Yamaha's new Montage looks quite good. They added their FM engine back in.
I like the Korg Minilogue. I think the sound does not seem too complex yet. However it looks like a nice build for a great price that blows out Arturia.
Where was Akai? Waldorf is kinda meh too. Neither company has a flagship.
So it is 2016?
What is the ultimate synthesizer? What should you really buy to make music?
1. Jupiter-80 (find me a more powerful synthesizer with effects & layering! you can't!)
2. Korg Kronos
3. Korg Odyssey
4. Yamaha Montage
5. Dave Smith Prophet 12 or Pro 2
What else would you need to make music? Maybe just sound banks on your computer, or a drum machine. This would be my recs for buying something new off the shelf. Happy 2016. Push the envelope of technology and make new music for me. Do not settle for retro music or nostalgia.
