Vintage Synthesizers

I’ve been playing with the idea of making electronic music again. Back in the 80s I was fascinated by upcoming new bands like Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Yello and Front 242.
I loved the new sounds that were possible using analog and digital synthesizers. I started to make music myself with a little Casio K1 Sample keyboard. Later I bought a used Waldorf PRK Processor keyboard which I used with different midi expanders. The PRK keyboard quality was amazing, it had a 68000 CPU and 5 ½’’ floppy drive and was a monster at 84 pounds!

My neighbor was borrowing me his Dave Smith Instruments Mopho Keyboard for a couple of weeks:

I loved the powerful crushing basses this thing can produce and the arpeggiator, sequencer, LFO, and two oscillators allow for an immense range of sounds.

Other great options are the original Moog synthesizers or a Yamaha DX7, both are classics.

Below is a website that has an immense collection of vintage synthesizers including sounds samples:
