What songs have the best sounding synths to you? I love
Corsair by BoC... it has such great personality... Also, I
love the synths used on I Care Because You Do... Acrid Avid
Jam Shred, Start as You Mean to go On, and Alberto Balsalm

i like it when synths sound a bit like on
µ-ziq's scaling...that little background synth that goes
'oooh ooh ooooh'
i also like the synths on µ-ziq's goodbye goodbye,
squarepusher's theme from earnest borgnine, psultan, beep
street, the little bit towards the beginng of squarepusher
also boc's an eagle in your mind
and a lot of the synth sounds on SAW1 and 2

Lots of the early aphex stuff, like Saw 85-92 had some nice
old school synths, like in xtal and ageispolis

I love the brittle synth he uses on CockVer10... reminds me
of some machine choking out some sick sounds, I don't
know... it's just strange. I also LOVE the synths on Alberto
Balsalm, Flim and IZ-US.

If you like pads check out the Korg Wavestation, it's the
ultimate padmachine IMHO

I perfer modular synthesis. knobs, knobs, and more knobs. I
especially like RDJ's approach on the concept. The "one-two"
opening base line on the original "On" is so sweet. I sugest
anyone whose interested check out the track "Front" on
"Trace" (the whole abulm is pretty phat) by Gridlock
(Metroplois records).

I despise pads, it's mostly holding down a few keys, and
letting the keyboard do the work. I've yet to find many
artists to use it in a diffrent way than a harmony layer
over the track.

I love the strings in Boy/girl song, and I think the drum
effects accompany them in a weird
perfect-because-it-sounds-completely-different sort of way.
But those strings are probably one of my fave effects.

Oh, and also the little synth melody in Acrid Avid Jam Shred
and everything in Pancake Lizard.

i'm extremely partial to the lowpassed bell (i think they're
squares) that BoC seems so fond of.. I'm also a big fan of
high frequency synth would quick but non-repetitive
modulation of different aspects.... Anything that makes one
tone sound like it's going somewhere or doing something
without ever leaving pitch pleases me.

history of important sounds' type thing done one on the
It's almost as good as the rotterdam termination source

EQs and a pulse osc the other day.
Not enough jews harp in the top 40 for quite a while
