Graduation coming up, buying a "cheap" analog synth
I've been making music for almost 5 years now and the most i've ever gotten is a midi controller, I love making music, I'm very good at mastering... I just want a cheap analog synthesizer that would last me for awhile during this next gap year i'd be taking after high school. I'm looking for a synth under 700$, even though I have a job and i have the ability to save more money. I have looked at the newest Arturia MiniBrute and I am very interested but I'm sure there are others that will ploy me away from that. myzoneiswet's sounds on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free
For new synths, the Minitaur, Minibrute, Mopho (module), a few MFB synths, Doepfer Dark Energy, to name a few would fit that price range.
If you're willing to shop used, you could get a Slim Phatty, Mopho key, Tetra, various older Poly-analogs (JX-3P, JX-8P, Juno 106, Polysix, etc).
I almost forgot about all the old, used synths lying on a desolate floor that I could be using. I feel like craigslist could be a good option for my self too, but what synth out of the several that you mentioned has a well, great built up sound that could be used in the makings of (what i like to make) a vintage, memorium to the great decade of idm from 92-02?
