Synthesizer.com is a site that I created especially for electronic
keyboard players. Unlike other sites that purely focus on gear,
this site will focus on synthesizers in action...real
world applications of vintage and current synths. It will
serve as a resource for you to check out some of the great keyboard
players who use synthesizers and electronic keyboards as part of
their sound. You will also be able to check out some of the synthesizer
heavy musical genres that seem to be taking over the world.
In addition, I want to guide you to resources that will allow you
to actually improve your synthesizer playing. My
sincere hope is that you will come away from this site having learned
included a very interesting section on classic vintage electronic
keyboards and synthesizers. It's packed with the history of these
keyboards along with sound files of classic recordings that utilized
these vintage instruments.
rise of electronic music over the past decade has lead to a revolution
in new sounds and even new genre's such as electro-clash that use
synthesizers and electronic keyboards as the foundation. However,
the advances in technology have come at the expense of our collective
keyboard playing. DJs, producers, and electronic music artists are
making hit records without the ability to play a simple major scale!
This speaks volumes about their raw talent but can you imagine what
these same artists could accomplish with a little more facility?
With a little more knowledge of harmony? It is not my intention
to turn you all into jazz pianists, but I do want to assist my fellow
electronic keyboard players in freeing themselves from the shackles
of arpegiators, sequencers, and triggered samples. In your next
productions, I want you to be able to insert a human element that
can only come from you actually playing the part without quantization.
Only then will we be able to truly take over the world......stay
