The magic never went away. Nothing's holding anyone back from unleashing it, except posting on Gearslutz perhaps.

The "just used whatever they had" would be more applicable to a 30s blues guitar player with a beaten-up acoustic than a 70s/80s producer, if you read how many tapes they bounced back to and layers they used. Not to mention the quality of the equipment in the studios back then, which doesn't exactly show restraint, budget concerns or modesty.

I've been wanting a comp for the 2-bus for a long time, probably will pick up the Drawmer 1968ME. I'd also like to get a nice analog fsu module, maybe a Filterbank 2, Quad Plague Bearer, or something that says Metasonix on it.

.... an analog poly would be nice too.... heh

I'll look to add:

Sequentix Cirklon
Oberheim SEM
Roland JX-8p or MKS-70


I'll also be doing a tear-down and re-configuration of my studio <sigh>...
it's a organizational mess in here.

I'm off next week, so the tear-down may be before the new year, actually.

Actually that might involve getting one more piece of gear. A good tape machine with 24 track input to get that almost Lo-Fi but punchy analog sound. Any suggestions?

If you think the ****load of tech is the problem, then quit whining and eliminate it.

Get a lute, and wander around troubadour-like singing your fancy songs.heh

But make sure you dress the part, too.

Sorry Yoozer, I disagree with you here, and think you may have missed the point.

Take a look at how artists like Vince Clarke and OMD chiselled a style of music through simplicity in the early 80s. I'm pretty sure if they had the technology available now, the songs they wrote would have sounded very different. I understand the latest 'exciting?' technology offers alot more in terms of features and sheen, but you can't argue that the limiting factors of a CSQ sequencer, monosynth and simple drum machine let you focus, almost explicitally on the sound, and the silence around it.

These days, you try and write a simple piece, but can't help but feel all these extra features and fx available are almost waiting to collapse in top of what you are writing, almost muddying up the whole experience. Its not the same. The process has become completely different.

Im not saying its better or worse, but when you used to turn up at someones house, plug in your Korg Micropreset and 606 to your mates guitar amp, maybe add a phaser, someone on bass, maybe there girlfriend had a Juno, that crude, yes, limiting factor of the gear and era made it something very very special for some. I don't know about you, but that is what alot of todays music misses imo. Simplicity and having the will power to keep it that way. That crude process defined what alot class as heart of classic synthesizer music.

Technology today may be a zillion times more exciting today for you, but given the choice, I remember that shiver of excitment when the next session was coming up. I don't get that these days so much.

Having 100s of tracks, insert fx, ultra powerful softsynths & workstations is indeed amazing, but imo can lead you in an entirely different direction both in writing and performing music. I think also thats why very little synth music these days can compete with what was done in the 80s. (imo)

Go and see Tron Legacy! Technically a zillion times better than the original.................but



Sorry to OP for going a little off topic.

My plan för 2011:
Sell my Voyager AE and buy a Helmtronic Challanger.
Try to find e.g. a Soundscape IBOX8 to use as an interface for my hardware effects.

My brother made me some beautiful rosewood MU modular cabinets for Christmas so I'm thinking about sticking a small Mos-Lab system into one of them.

Other than that, 2011 will hopefully see me getting:

1) New monitors
2) New computer
3) SEM
4) More eurorack and MU modules
5) Reamp
6) Whatever unexpectedly cool stuff shows up at NAMM

Nowadays all-in-one features are available to almost any home studio. Latest CPUs give awesome horsepower to achieve signal chains with all the effects you can dream about. But the basic sound synthesis and classic subtractive, formant and supersaws will stay for a long time. Today there's a slip in thinking that sound sources from the past are outdated, but this is not the case. For effects and improvements, there's a plethora of great gears indeed.

i agree with flat earth..

people used to spend time diving into the very LIMITS of the gear. now a days people dive into "getting around" the controls..

there is too many options for people now a days. skill comes from knowing what to use, when to use it, and when to know enough is enough.

its daunting that i can have 15 synths and terabytes worth of samples just sitting around. it makes designing seem like a task, instead of a part of the creative process.

but if it wasnt for all this, i would of never started making music

SO ANYWAYS,

my goal is to cut down, organize and renovate my sample collection and make it easier to find specific things

to get a nicer drum pad of some sort to play **** in instead of programming it in.. and to get some a zoom recorder to record random **** to use instead of expected sounds

Pair of good monitors

A good master control keyboard, Novation or Axiom Pro

And either a powerful analog synth or build a Doepfer modular
