Up until last month, I thought it was totally ridiculous for a hobbyist to spend over $2000 on a synth but I picked up a snow, fell in love with the sound and upgraded to a Polar 2 weeks later. I figure if I get the best there is, I won't have to buy another synth in 5 years.
I also have an Alesis micron, a korg m3 and NI Komplete 5 with kore2.
I picked up a blofeld as well but even though I really found it easy to come up with great patches, I couldn't afford to keep that and get the Polar as well.
As much as I love the Polar, I feel there are a couple of features I'd like to see added. Is there a running wishlist I could add to?
I listen to a variety of genres but I primarily make progressive hip hop and downtempo inspired by jazz, electro, new wave, trip hop, dub, brazilian etc.
Lately, I actually spend more time programming and playing rather than making songs but I'm having fun with that.
Eventually, I'd love to make electronic versions of albums like trouble man by marvin gaye. I don't have the chops yet but I'm working on it
Looking forward to trading tips.
