Zebra looks cool, but I've never used it. To me it looks like a lesser version of Phaseplant.kPere wrote: ↑Mon Nov 07, 2022 1:28 am As black friday sales are slowly comming to light some may be tempted to get a new synth, like myself for example.
I don't have many, never got any serious one - and by my surprise I'm struggling to find information on what are given synths good at.
I mean I'd be happy to see from you guys, who are more experienced in synthesis and have worked on some synths - what are your thoughts on the ones you own or used to own?
To be more exact, I heard that Zebra being a workhorse and capable of making pretty much anything you want, but is good for cinematic sounds, pads etc.
Is someone working on more pop souding music have any reasons to invest in Zebra and it's workflow? Or maybe there is some other synth that'd be more pleasure to work with in that direction.
Subjective matters aside, but I'm sure you guys could share some insight on some synths you've got.
Do you do your own sound design or do you mostly use presets or start with presets and tweek? I think that should play heavily into your decision. I'm in the 'most synths can cover most generas camp', so having a workflow you like is the most important thing.
For me (psy, DNB, Dub) Vital and Phaseplant have the best workflow, but they are built for sound designing from scratch rather than starting from presets, though you can certainly do that too.
