- Try this on your ipad ;____
- Still the best synth made by man. No other ones can sound like this. Period.
- check these crazy guys (Global Endemit) /watch?v=U1Xma5bmL8k
- fantastic ;-)
- Are Y gonna make a music or star worse ?
- ...our bass player wrote this!!
- Holy god.
- cud you imagine this guy living above you
- It would interesting to play battleships on the grid and see what sounds came out.
- Robin Wood, owner of EMS Cornwall, said the same thing. Must've been very cared for through its lifetime. This unit currently lives in LA in a recording studio I believe.
- EMS still produces them. Long lead time though.
- Can't they make a cool, modern equivalent of this???
- tremendo equipo ...pero a este tipo le quedo grande ...no tiene idea
LOL this sounds like a lot of computer sounds, broken computer sounds and rapid fire blasters. Anyway, how about you try to record the Doctor Who theme on this? So it'll be like how the Delaware DW Theme should've sounded - Maybe make it sound kinda like the Peter Howell version of the theme, or the Dominic Glynn version, instead of the silly, pathetic crap that even the BBC didn't use, and instead kept on using Delia Derbyshire's original (and best) Musique Concrète theme for DW.
- Really? I have never seen such a super mint condition of Synthi AKS. Thanks for your response.
- Thank you. No, this Synthi A was built in 1972, the KS in 1978.
- Be glad you didn't see me with the back open messing about with the solder gun.
- Love the Workshop. thank you. The first time I turned the machine on, it was instant Pertwee/Baker episodes.
- are you familiar with classical electronic music from the 1940's, 50's, 60's, etc. It does not sound "musical." There are pretty melody demos out there using the Synthi if you really want... keep trying, I'm confident you can find them.
- Wasn't trying to make "music" in these videos. You can hear my "music" in the above reverbnation link in the info section if you could be bothered to click it.
- Thanks from Japan. Sounds great, looks pretty new! Simple question. Is that Synti you purchased from EMS as a new product?
- great demo for an awesome synth! half of the sounds make me think, 'i hope that sound doesn't make the synth break!'
is there any synth fanatic that can actually make music
- Roger Waters called...he wants his rings back.
- Really nicely done improvisation. No a Dr. WEho cliche in the bunch either.
