Well, I guess it was only a matter of time when the thread would devolve into a discussion about wooden cocks.
Well, to be fair, it's been said a million times that synths are just tools :shrug:

Yeah, tools with big, big knobs and deep patch points.

Yeah, well I attached real wood to the sides of my iMac and bolted a couple of Moog knobs to the front panel to make the entire computer analog. Now, if I could just get Apple to rename iTunes to iWon'tStayInTunes...
What kind of wood? Oak? I've heard that some types of wood, e.g. pine, don't sound as analog as oak.
Pine is prone to rotting quickly, pretty much exclusively used for emulations of Behringer gear. However, if you want to emulate the degradation of components and the scent of mold and cat piss to really get that old equipment vibe, pine can definitely be the ticket.
