Also, I don't see any issue with that approach, I'm sure that you can learn drive a car faster when you have it rather than you just read about it on the internet.
Driving lessons usually include use of the instructors car :D

Well, I was naive, then I discovered that there is no way to save patches, and I have to record the synth every time I change the patch, and all the CV hassle, etc. Finally, I came to conclusion that a pure analog synth is more a toy than a workhorse device. I can be a nice touch to a track to add one sound per analog synth, but that's it. So, I was wondering how others incorporate analog synths into their workflow.
I use a Moog Sub37. All patches can be saved and recalled just like a softsynth.
eh?

Dammit! You mean I’m going to have to learn how to recreate the sound I get from this patching?

Thanks. Took me ages to get it to sound exactly like an 808.

If you double this setup you might achieve a nice bass sound, too.

Hi folks,

I was so excited when Behringer made analog synths affordable, without checking the limitations and how analog synths work, I bought Neutron and Model D and I was sure these two synths are more than enough to make "fully" analog tracks. Well, I was naive, then I discovered that there is no way to save patches, and I have to record the synth every time I change the patch, and all the CV hassle, etc. Finally, I came to conclusion that a pure analog synth is more a toy than a workhorse device. I can be a nice touch to a track to add one sound per analog synth, but that's it. So, I was wondering how others incorporate analog synths into their workflow.

Thanks.
You just listed, why analog devices are so good :D
But why oh why you bought two mono synths? You need one poly too for chords (pads etc).


Though I made this with only one monosynth and a hint of creativity...

Song made with just a Neutron: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oxh-7JdgSyY

Another one, just Neutron + reverb + looper: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myZgT6ldi4M

I don’t know if there are better examples out there, or whatever, they came up from a quick search.

And while that’s not how I use analog synths (in particular monos), well, it should demonstrate that yeah, they can actually pretty useful and flexible.

Should have gone to spec savers 😂

Seriously you have to do your research on things. No point in complaining about the synths you bought here if you haven't done research on the features you need in a synth.. Just buy some Elektrons and be done 👍
