First listen personal favourites.

Track 01: I've only got as far as this and I already want to buy this synth that growls like an animal and tinkles like a stream, whatever it is! 8-)
Track 06: And now I also want to buy the beautifully percussive and wiry synth featured here :headbang:

Track 09: Love the metallic and electronic piano sounds from this track (FM synthesis surely?) :ugeek:

Track 14: Ooh - this has some beautifully haunting timbres too, with lovely internal motion :shocked:

I need more funds!

Well done everybody :clap:

Here’s my wildly wrong guesses. I’ve listened through a few times. Really impressive work by all. There’s not a track here I wouldn’t happily add to my library. :clap::clap::clap:

1. No clue
2. Modular
3. DSI
4. Hmm
5. Waldorf
6. FM synth
7. Korg DW8000
8. VP 330
9. No idea
10. 2600
11. Another DSI
12. Prophet
13. Jupiter
14. Clueless

A good selection of tunes & styles. No8 with the vocoder - thats gotta narrow down the posibilities quite a bit.

I am clueless, really, apart from Will’s track! There are some great sounds, but my big lesson is that pretty much all modern synths seem to be insanely powerful and flexible. Amazing variety….

There's one in there that has really surprised me - it was a synth I used in a previous OSC but the person has taken it further than I did!

Wonderful array of sounds there, but I wouldn’t have a clue on identifying the synths!

We’ll worth downloading the wav files - I’ve found - now that I’ve figured how to do it on my iPad!

Look forward to hearing them again when I get back to the studio at the end of the week.

Wow, I really enjoyed listening to all of them.(even mine) Some fantastic sounds in there, I couldn’t even speculate, most of the time what synths were in play.

But really well done all.

What a great listen! I can’t join in the guessing game as I don’t know the first thing about synths.

I don’t think any of you should mention this challenge to your partners though, they might listen and then wonder why anyone needs more than one synth….

Easy. You just tell them that each synth can only create one type of music :lol:

No4: could be a Casio or a GM VST like TTS-1, or maybe somthing posh pretending to be Casio-like.

My guess will be the Roland GAIA, which has a GM synth hidden under the VA knobby panel.

It will be interesting to see the artist/synth list

Rich, as some synths have been used more than once, will you say how many times the multiple use ones have been done - I'm not entirely sure it will help folks, but it could be that just one synth was used 4 times!

Surely number is by Folderol? And probably on Yoshimi?
