Hey, does anyone want to be my date to a synthesizer potluck in Brooklyn on Saturday? There's a catch to win my eternal love. You need to be the owner of an unwieldy old-school analog synthesizer, and you need to bring it along with you to the potluck. Unfortunately I only have a digital synth with analog filters, which doesn't count, so I want to go along with someone who is all analog, all the way. We're talking Moog Modulars, ARP 2600s, and the like.
And here is an awesome gear blog: Music Thing. Read all about Roland's new 404, the digital mellotron (why?), the history of the Hohner Guitaret, singing robots, and more. Music Thing's sister weblog Video Thing is great as well. If you need proof that a higher power exists, look no further than the video keytar. I swooned!
