What I would buy Drum Machines & Samplers

What I would buy

I haven’t seen anything come out that sparks my interest lately. Seems like we’re living in the past with all these rereleases. So I thought of what I would buy that isn’t a traditional synth or drum machine.

A self-sampling polyphonic analog synth keyboard with a built in digital sampler, multitrack sequencer, + per track digital multieffects.

The point would be to be able to quickly sample a sound at the press of a button and assign it to a track (out of say 16 tracks). Then play and record that sample. Have about 4 stackable FX per track. Be able to run the sequencer and play parts in and record them in real time. Maybe even stack sounds. Stereo audio in for sampling other devices, and the ability to export batch export tracks individually.

Maybe Behringer could pull it off. Or just wait for Moog to rerelease the pencil sharpener for $800. I’m cool with either.

A past that sounds worse than the original did

I’m just waiting for a poly wavetable synth with analog filters that I like and that’s affordable.

How do you think guitarists feel when Gibson and Fender release another 100 versions of thier 60 year old designs at ridiculous prices!!

Just be glad you can buy a moog clone for $300 & do dodgy Emerson impressions. ..

I'd buy that for a dollar!

I find it interesting that a good chunk of my fav ios synths are the various wavetable ones. Putting a nice analog filter at the end would be real nice.

Yeah, the Quantum is my wet dream, but I’d be happy with something more simple if it could retail for $1200.

This is so true. But they have not been bit buy the addiction like we have. With that being said My GAS is high at the moment.

it's quite simple, the price gouging of vintage gear over the last 15 years led to overly expensive and ridiculous prices. Now it's easy to sell re-releases of them, still quite expensive but compared to the originals cheap and people are buying them of course.
I am glad that also people who start today have the opportunity to buy some classic synths without having to sell their kidney for it. The new generation isn't responsible for sick prices of old gear. for people who started a couple of years ago there is also a lot to discover just owning a 909 clone + a 303 clone + some fx
the old gen might get bored over the next couple of years, seeing all these re issues of synths which they have already played to death in the 80's
might be karma trying to earn a few $ by selling synths for more money than one has paid for them.

You just described the machine I've got real money saved for. There doesn't seem to be a machine for the solo studio guy who likes quality gear. Hell, there's not even a digital mixer with transport controls for your DAW for under $20,000 that I can think of, not that I need one.

The more I think about it, I hate DAWs. LOL. I'm a dinosaur, I still want a huge multitrack Machine that can sample and has pads, 6 aux sends, separate outputs, 24 input is fine, beautiful eq and compressor , hard wired analog effects (why not?) knob per feature, and a handful of faders you can assign to do anything. And of course it should sound brilliant.

The Synthstrom Deluge already exists. Besides the stereo input (and analog synth), it nails everything you want. Just hook up a keyboard to it.
