Ok i think i doing fine to asked you what music genre… so I’ll tell you what I’ll do without making a brand fanboy. First i would not take the Analog Four, i wouldn’t take the Analog Rytm.
I would rather prefer few different microphone (canon mic, contact mic, underwater mic) a good headphone, an ipad with granular app, an octatrack, keep your computer… a good soundcard + iconnect Midi4+ , guitar / violin + amp is just fine… And start to Live sampling, Treat and Design your sound but not from the ground sound synthesis way. (Sure you will learn a lot, if you really want to know sound synthesis do syntorial but not buy analog synth for now)
Effects are very important too…
That’s not because you feel your way analog : it’s a synth you need ! Nope it’s analog and modern evolution of music concrete but less experimental you want. it’s analog sounds effected and triturated… it’s called Re-Sampled Synthesis, Granular Synthesis + your melody + your voice… but state of the art of the transfomation and sound design. (not sound synthesis)
i don’t say don’t buy synth at all neither don’t put atmosphere and soundscapes in your music don’t get me wrong. But as strange it can sound you don’t need a synth to achieve every music band you give as reference. it’s just another way to work with materials.
Hope it make sense. if not i’m sure other elektronauts will extend what i have in mind with that.
(Buy a synth when you know what your music is missing you will save a lot of money by starting by the beginning and the beginning is no hardware synth for me)
