Synthesizers

Best Synthesizer in India - Reviews and Comparison 2021

We picked the 7 best Synthesizers in 2021 for your budget and use cases.

The best time to buy your first synthesizer couldn't be better. Synthesizers are smaller than ever, more affordable, and more attractive to beginners. Moreover, you can buy synthesizers to make music for very little money.

When buying for the first time, it's easy to get confused. For starters, some synths don't even look like traditional synths, while other synths may have more features than you need, especially if you've tried apps or software in the case. The most important thing to consider for a beginner is that cheap does not necessarily mean easy to use.

Your step-by-step guide for easy use!

1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for Synthesizers

1.1 Cost

Try to spend all the money on a high-end synthesizer. We hope you never have to buy another one, but it turns out this may be a false economy. The more expensive a synthesizer is, the more features it can have, and if you're a beginner, you might spend hours browsing menus instead of making music. Pick a simple synthesizer between ₹3500 - ₹15,000 to learn, and you'll have a better understanding of the next step—the benefits of paying more than ₹30,000.

1.2 Sequencer Synthesizer

If you want to buy your first synthesizer, you can limit the functions of your keyboard to nonexistent. If this is the case, you will want to make sure that your synthesizer has some kind of built-in sequencer. This way, you can write low pitches or notes (note by note) to the built-in memory, allowing your hands to freely adjust things like cutoff and resonance (if you want to produce an acid-like sound that is very important), or make sure it's not too big on your hand.

1.3 Size

The massive synth looks excellent, but if you can't access it quickly, you might forget it. If you're just starting, your studio space can be minimal. Therefore, buy a compact synthesizer. You'll be able to sit down at the table and use it any time without having to install and pack it. If it's small enough to fit in a reasonable size bag, it's also more likely to make music outside the house.

If it's small enough to fit in a reasonable size bag, it's also more likely to make music outside the house.

1.4 Built-in Speaker

While playing a synthesizer, you must be very excited to listen to what you are playing or the music you are making. Yes, the headphone is one option, but it is not a feasible option every time. Therefore, it is best if your synthesizer has built-in speakers. However, when in public, please use headphones as no one wants to hear electronic bass on the train.

1.5 Chord

The chord is one of the essential functions of the synthesizer. It is the number of sounds. In short, the different notes on the keyboard are called voices here. For example, a standard piano has 88 different tones, and you can combine them to create additional notes. Some instruments have very few sounds, only one sound, and most synthesizers are mono, meaning they can only play one sound simultaneously. However, some polyphonic versions have more complicated internal circuitry for this purpose. This means that they are more expensive than monophonic synthesizers.

Some people think that analogue synthesizers sound "warmer" than digital sounds, while others can't tell. For the first synthesizer, the pronunciation of the synthesizer is not that important. However, the choice between analogue and digital is still an essential consideration because the type of synthesis the instrument uses can affect whether you use your sound or use presets. Subtractive synthesis, the type generally associated with analogue synthesizers, is possibly the most straightforward and most logical type to learn. On the other hand, even for the most experienced musicians, digital FM synthesis is often confusing. You can also use analogue modelling techniques to get a digital synthesizer. Still, the same advice applies: buy a subtractive synthesizer, one that has clear oscillators, envelope and filter controls and labels, and you'll immediately master the basics of synthesis.

2. Use Cases: The best Synthesizer for you

2.1 Should I use a modular or all-in-one synthesizer?

Modularity vs all-in-one has many different components to make up a synthesizer. Some of them can create sounds, others can modify them, and some can control how signals are routed. Don't worry; we will continue to present the details of these components in future courses.

In a modular synthesizer, these components are independent. They are typically rack-mounted and can be physically moved to whatever arrangement is required. You must use jumpers to connect each module you want to use to other modules. Although there are some general guidelines for patching modules to get specific sounds, there are no rules. Some of the craziest sounds come from random patches or patches of shapes that initially didn't make any sense. Many modules are not even connected to a keyboard.

The all-in-one synthesizer has all the components that produce a specific range of sounds in the case. This includes analogue units that are "patched" with switches and knobs and modern "Casio keyboard" style synths - you need to choose your favourite preset. The site mainly focuses on modular synthesizers. They are the most flexible and great for learning because you can see exactly where the signal is going, and frankly, they are fun.

2.2 Which synth is best for me- analogue or digital?

Analogue signals are represented by continuously varying voltage levels in analogue circuits. The so-called "continuously variable" means that there can be one between each increase in signal level. The number of groups that an analogue signal can represent is almost infinite.

In the end, digital technology arrived. Digital sound is represented by a series of numbers, each of which corresponds to a discrete signal level. When these numbers are converted to analogue signals, you will get sound. Since digital systems can only store and process a limited number of digits, they cannot represent all possible signal levels. However, you can use sufficient numbers so that the human ear can barely differentiate between the digital signal to be simulated and the analogue signal. You can program the sound in the digital world without changing any circuitry. This allows musicians to obtain a whole new range of sounds that were previously unavailable. Digital technology has many advantages over analogue technology. Digital synthesizers are inexpensive, can be kept in sync, and can repeat sounds repeatedly. However, many people prefer the sound of an analogue synthesizer. Some synthesizers are a mix of these two technologies. The signal paths in these units are all analogue, but the control circuitry is digital, giving you the advantage of both worlds.

3.7 How many notes can a monophonic and polyphonic synthesizer play at the same time?

Monosynths can only play one note at a time, and polysynths can only play 2 or more notes.

What happens when you press multiple keys on a mono synth?

Different synthesizers have different processing methods. Some use the priority of the low notes, which means that they emit the lowest note that is being played. Some use a high note priority, which generates the highest note being played. Some audiophiles will prefer it a bit and use the last note priority, which means that they will output the most recently played note, regardless of whether it is the highest, the lowest, or somewhere in between. Each note requires a separate voice chain, which presents some challenges when designing a chord synthesizer. Each voice chain means an extra pile of electronic equipment. All oscillators must coordinate with each other. There must be some logic to assign each note played to a specific voice chain. For these reasons, most analogous compounds are single compounds. With the advancement of technology, it is easier to achieve polyphony, first using digitally tuned oscillators and digital voice distributors and then digitally generating the sound.

3.8 What is the difference between hardware and software synthesizer?

The software and hardware synthesizer is the actual physical, electronic device. All generation and processing is done in the synthesizer circuitry. The hardware synthesizer can be either analogue or digital, depending on its circuitry. The software synthesizer (soft-synths) exists entirely within the computer. You load a program, and suddenly there is a synthesizer available on the screen. Soft synths are generally designed to mimic specific hardware synths as accurately as possible. They can even simulate analogue synthesizers, even if they are always digital. The line between hardware and software synthesizers is often blurred. Some units are dedicated computers in the box, with distributable software keyboards and controls.

4. How To Tips and care instructions for Synthesizers

4.1 How to maintain a synthesizer?

Here are our pro tips on how best you can look after your synthesizer!

  • Start cleaning old gears with a dry cloth. The next step is using a microfiber cloth and warm water. Squeeze out excess water and gently wipe the surface of the synthesizer. For a better cleaning effect, remove all knobs or sliding covers before cleaning. Make sure to take photos first so you can remember where to go.

  • A microfiber cloth and warm water can also be used on the top of the keyboard, but for stubborn stains and dirt, wipe off the alcohol or denatured alcohol with a cotton swab to fix it. However, be careful to use alcohol on other surfaces, as alcohol can damage the surface or remove the text or further details on the silkscreen.

  • Stickers can ruin the look of a machine that should have been clean, but the good news is, you haven't kept it that way. With a little careful cleaning, you can make the area look new again. You will need to remove the large pieces, which will take a long time, but I found nails to be the safest method. There will be a sticker on the surface, so the next step is WD-40. Spray it on a paper towel and place it on the area for a few minutes.

  • The oil will react with the glue and should be wiped off immediately. You may need to try several times to resolve the issue entirely. They will also remove the adhesive but also the paint. It is something powerful. If your synthesizer has a long-lasting smell even after a good cleaning, it may be the culprit. Open it carefully, use a vacuum cleaner to remove all the dust from the rabbits and then wipe the interior with a small amount of isopropyl or denatured alcohol.

  • Be sure to wear gloves and a mask, and be sure to work in a well-ventilated area. Then put the synthesizer outside to dry in the sun. Sunlight is very suitable for removing unpleasant odours. Make sure to leave it open so sunlight can work its magic on the internal components as well. If you are concerned about putting it outside, you can place it on a window sill or inside an open door.

  • You may need to practice several times to get it back to normal. If you live in a humid climate, mould can become a problem, especially for outdated synths with wooden bodies. Mould likes to live in crevices and converge between the wood.

  • Unfortunately, a small amount of alcohol and sunbathing are not enough to remove mould from these cracks, so you may need to use a little bleach. Use a mixture of 1 part neutral detergent, 10 parts bleach, and 20 parts water.

  • Clean the affected parts with a sponge and let the cleaner drip into the crevices to kill any hidden mould inside. Then put it in the sun to dry and air dry. Remember to wear protective clothing and work in a well-ventilated area.

  • Have you noticed that the white plastic buttons on the synthesizer are slightly yellowish? Over time, this can happen when it is exposed to sunlight or other things. Although buying replacement parts may be the best way, you can always try whitening them using a technique called Retrobrite, which uses chemicals and sunlight to restore the plastic to its original white hue.

  • The metal of the synthesizer has been treated and painted to prevent corrosion, but this is not always the case for screws and other metal parts, such as jack nuts. Otherwise, the appearance of the original synthesizer may be damaged due to rust or corrosion of the screws. What you can do is buy some new screws and spray black paint on top. It is unnecessary to do the entire screw because the only part visible from the outside is the top.

  • Poke a few small holes in the cardboard strip, insert the screws, and spray paint on top. It is effortless, and makes a big difference in the appearance of the synthesizer.
