Anything about MUSIC but doesn't fit into the forums above.

(I probably should have posted it in Instruments, sorry)
I'm looking for synths that sound woody and warm, and (of course) analog. I have Bazille, which sounds both woody and warm ("ba") but at the same time sharp and edgy ("zille"). I also have Sylenth, which definitely sounds cold and digital. I was thinking about Zebra but although it has "bra" (definitely warm!), it also has that "zeee" at the beginning which suggests sharp and slightly digital (but definitely less digital than "sylenth"). Any recommendations for synths that sound as woody and warm as possible?

I don't think Sylenth1 sounds cold and digital. And, i don't think Bazille sounds particularly warm (even though it's not extremely cold either).

Maybe we should try and define "warm" first. :P

I mean, man, say those two aloud - "BAZille" and "sylenth" - which one sounds more analogue to you?

Aaah... get it.

But, isn't "Bazille" quite cold? Check out this vid, at 0:05:

Yes, you are right, it's definitely more tinny than woody

well, I didn't get many responses - Sausage seems to be quite woody though:

(even though it's an effect, not an instrument)

My favorite analog emulations are... (in no particular order)

Legend (an 8 voice Moog Model D emulator)

RePro (1 voice Pro 1 emulator + 8 voice Prophet 5 emulator)

PolyKB (PolyKobol emulator with an extra oscillator and filter)

Oddity (Arp Odyssey emulator... I forget how many voices)

Diva (16 voice Frankensynth with bits and pieces from a lot of classic synths)

I'm looking for something with a large, rounded bottom, that's slightly thinner in the mids, and has a huge top end.

Sorry for the derail :shrug:
