The Moog Archives are neat . That to me is the way to make electronic music . I tried , I really tried with software synths and to me they just seem like a cheap joke in a way . I think it's part of the human way to have something real and touchable . Human beings don't wait for number crunching .
If you plug in a Minimoog or any other analog synthesizer , you are ready to roll . A software synth , you have to boot up your computer , install the software , start the software , and then set up Midi .

I guess I'm like a guitar guy , I just want to make music . Computers are great for recording , and making the CDs , but that's as far as I'm going with them .

I like those guys too . They even let you pay $100 a month for a basic system , not bad . I've been thinking about getting a PAIA system . You get 2 VCOs , 2 state variable VCFs , 2 VCAs , a midi to cv converter , and each module has modulation for $450 . It comes as a kit , but , I figure if I can fix older gear then I can do this too .

The Virtual Synthesizer Museum and the Vintage synth explorer are two very good web sites.
http://www.synthmuseum.com
http://www.vintagesynth.com

I am planning on makeing changes to my site. But I will keep you informed. If you have firends who are into synthesizers as well plaese send them to my site.

You were right when you said: I am an analog synth fan at heart. Whcih is true, I will always love analog synths.

I love the old synths , not because they are old , I like them because it's all hands on and purely electronic . I hate sample playback , I do like the analog modeling synthesizers . The only problem I have with analog modeling is that they all sound the same , and they should , they are just computers crunching numbers .
An old Minikorg sounds completely different from a Minimoog . A Yamaha SY-1 sounds different from the later CS series . A Roland SH-1000 sounds different from a SH-101 . Everyone had a unique sound because of the way they made the electronics and the way each company evolved . Number crunching can't get that , maybe one day , but not today .
I think analog synthesizers are just one of those things that they got right the first time , can't get no better than that . Just like a Guitar player may say the same thing about a Les Paul or a Telecaster .
