There's no doubt that these days software is king. And why not? It costs a fraction of what hardware does, the sound quality is improving all the time, and you can literally fit your entire studio in a laptop bag. But for all its distinct advantages, there are some areas where software falls short for synth geeks. Vintage On The Cheap

Synthesizers.com  ---  Modular Analog Synthesizers for Electronic Music
Published on Jan 19, 2014 Mark Steiner·17 videos "This prototype was inspired by the natural vibrato accessible on Nyle Steiner's EVI (wind syth). For years I have wished a similar expression could be done with a standard keyboard. Adding natural, human controlled vibrato is the biggest benefit here, especially while keeping both hands on the keys, but you can also do some good bends and other things. This expression bar is held firm between most standard key sized keyboards and a stand.

In the mid-1960s, Dr. Robert Moog unleashed a new universe of sounds into musicdom with his invention of the electronic analog Moog Synthesizer. The timbre and tones of these keyboard instruments (true works of art in and of themselves) would come to define a generation of music, featuring heavily in songs by The Beatles, The Doors, Stevie Wonder, Kraftwerk and many others.When people hear the word “synthesizer” they often think “synthetic”—fake, manufactured, unnatural. In contrast, Bob Moog’s synthesizers produce beautiful, organic and rich sounds that are, nearly 50 years later, regarded by many professional musicians as the epitome of an electronic instrument.

Fatman Analog Mid Synth The FatMan has all of the features that give analog it's big bottom and punch in a MIDI controlled package. The classic Voltage Controlled normalization is brought up to date with a Velocity CV not available on pre-MIDI synths. Pitch wheel modulation is supported and Pitch and Velocity CVs and gate signal are provided on the front panel for driving PAiA or other linear response synthesizer modules. And all those knobs. They invite experimentation and invention in ways that a single control with functions buried under layers of obscure menus never can.
