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.I love Synthesizers, the good synthwave is made by synthheads, they can program them, that's not an easy thing.
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.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.
