    Synths and Similar - an electronic music gear thread

    Just backed this. Should hopefully arrive for my daughter's 5th birthday, if not it'll be a great Christmas present https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-blipblox-a-synthesizer-designed-for-kids-toys/x/18946671#/

    Synths are popular too! Genuinely tempted to buy a blipbox "for her" when they are released: https://blipblox.com

    I spent about an hour looking for a KDM hand on our living room floor once, so I feel your pain. Tried the torch tactic, i.e. moving one parallel to the floor and looking for larger shadows?

    What do you think of the D? I'm very tempted by one, the price is crazy.

    Had a chance to have a proper play with the JX now, it's lovely. I don't think I'd have a chance of identifying it from the real thing tbh. A couple more notes polyphony (like the original) would be nice, but 4 is enough for the vast majority of my cack handed keyboard mashing. I think I'm now pretty much sorted with my setup. Synth-wise anyway. Evolver on bass/lead Preen on assorted FM duties JX on pads/arps/non-FM 80s noises KS Rack (off to the side) on general purpose stuff MPC sequencing and drums The only slight* issue I have now is that my wee mixer only takes 8 inputs and I need 10 (or 12 if I'm using both sets of outs on the KSR). Just waiting to break it to the Mrs that I'll be spending yet more cash on what was "finished" a couple of months ago... * - not slight

    Enjoyed hipstering it up at lunch time with my new toy. Battery powered stuff is great!

    And in news that would surprise no one that knows me in real life, I present in meme form this evening's synth based activity: Picked up a JX-03 for 200 instead, which I think is the sensible choice. I don't have to revise my entire setup to fit it in for a start...

    There is a fuckton of wading through total shit to find the odd decent thing, that's for sure. Casio portatones by the ton.

    I lurk on eBay, gumtree and Facebook marketplace mainly, hoping to spot underpriced stuff before anyone else. Sound on Sound readers ads are worth watching too. Off to see/probably buy that Poly 800 tomorrow evening. Ended up down a YouTube rabbit hole in bed last night and have now convinced myself I need a Cazio CZ101 too though...

    Just leave it in a backpack in a tube station or park or something like that

    I'm hugely tempted by the Neutron too, really like the look of it. I'm also swithering over a fairly reasonably priced Korg Poly 800 at the moment, modded with filter cutoff and resonance knobs. Anyone got experience with it?

    @Alexlotl Monologue seems like an excellent shout then, should be good fun for playing around with while learning the basics of subtractive synthesis. Every hardware setup should have some sort of mono too imo. As far as alternatives, the Microbrute has already been mentioned, the Novation Bass Station 2 might be worth a look as well but I think I'd probably go for the Korg. *Edit* there is always the Moog Mother 32 as well seeing as you already have a decent controller.
