I love Synthesizers, the good synthwave is made by synthheads, they can program them, that's not an easy thing.
I am with you on this. Just a single sawtooth wave sounds pleasing to me. There's also a sort of timelessness to synthesizer sounds, even though their time has really only been for the past 50 or so years of music. You can listen to a solid track and not immediately know if it's early 80s electro, early 2000s new electro, etc.

Software emulators definitely make it cheaper and easier to play with synthesizer sounds, but I still love messing about with actual hardware. I have a Korg MS2000 I like to play with, even though I'm hardly any sort of musician.

Been benging on Roki Vulovics Serbian war songs from the 90s. The 90s Slav aesthetics are great, the lyrics are wholesome, the dude can genuinely sing, good channel I strongly recommend.

That's a classic. That synth sounds cool, was mucking about with one a few months ago. Had to give it back, it's a complex machine. Friend was trying to explain some technical things about it, something about it was the first major synth emulator.

Yeah I saw one in a store when they first came out back in the early 00s, or maybe it was the late 90s, but they were the first mainstream analog modelling synthesizer. Even though it's not exactly a "true" analog synth, it does a great job of emulating the warm and fat oscillator sounds. I bought one several years later off eBay for a good price. I wish I had a musician's brain because you can do some really cool stuff with it. For me it's mostly just a toy.

Strangely....this old 70's tune by Albert Hammond was played everywhere I was at in Asia in the early 1990s like in Coffee Shops and Bars...and in fine girl drinking bars-Karoake. I know a lot Kpop was influenced by early 1970s American pop...since most of crap pop in the 1980s was forbidden until about 1999 when the IMF forced Koreans to take in "Western" music.The kids, mostly girls in High school, could actually "sing" with decent harmonics -- the girls knew the Beach Boys really well. I was kind of shocked to hear the same sounds I heard from them that I heard faintly as a kid back in the 1970s... like a time warp of sorts. Korean Military administrators hand actively censored US music from reaching Korea except for a lot of 1960's and 1970's "approved" pop music. Frankly it reminded me of White American music from the early 1970s-- I felt actively brought back in time in some situations when I heard the music. Suddenly, then after the IMF in 1998 (J-Tribe financial attacks)...it was all released to the "global world". I really respect JYP for "surfing" these changes to make a "cottage" society back then that took the best he heard for Korea. He took traditional Kpop that I knew and melded it with J-pop and USA Pop themes...and made it happen. It is still melding even today. Looking at it all over time is really striking.

This song I heard like everywhere back then in Korea...this is the White California I want to remember btw:
