Streg, you look more composer like than any of us!

Matheus, thank you for revealing your face. It is a pleasant and unthreatening face.

Unfortunately, that picture I posted is not from my own studio (I was working somewhere else.) However, some of the gear there is mine (including the Elekron Machinedrum and the Nord Lead 3 - two pieces of gear I highly recommend, if you want to spend some time making sounds that are unique to you!)

By the way, tell me, honestly: is there any actual difference between a physical gear and a virtual plugin/software? like, sonic differences?

If I had to guess I'd say there would be a difference in dynamics, after all a physical gear has a direct impact on the electrical current whereas a software will "reprogram" it.
Kinda like the difference between a cd player and a vinyl record player.

But I've never compared physical and virtual gears.

As you probably already know, there are sonic differences between different bits of gear, but to me the range is more drastic between different specific instruments than between type of instrument (software, virtual analog, or analog). You can get a £100 hardware analog synthesizer (like my little farting JEN) and it'll sound very different to a Moog set to the same basic parameters (ignoring the extra parameters of the Moog - we're talking 'core' sound with your question), and the same goes for different VAs and soft synths. Many years ago, most soft synths didn't sound too great because of the lack of horsepower on your average computer, for example. Now many of them sound great with better aliasing and available processing power. But none of them I use still sound quite as rich as the Nord to my ears, no matter what I do with them. But then they pretty much all sound much better than my Novation KS5, which is a digital hardware synthesizer (it has a fairly pitiful overall sound, imo.) But then, I used to make some rather nice tracks on just that KS5 and a few other cheap bits of gear (all hardware), mainly via surgery in software on the computer afterwards! And there is a certain 'something' to the sound of some great analog gear - which is to be expected, since something totally different is driving their sound. My favourite recent discoveries have been software, however - and they've been cheap! ValhallaRoom is such an incredible, smooth, expansive yet lively sounding reverb, for example, and it's $50. It's better than some verbs I've demoed that are five times the price - some of those can have a 'metallic' and unpleasant edge in the latter end of the reverb tails (though that can be exploited, of course!) Another great company to check out is MeldaProduction. They're a relatively small Eastern European company, and the plugs are dirt cheap, but the 'saturation' setting that comes with their EQs and whatnot are some of the nicest tape 'warming' algorithms I've heard. So, just as different analog synth oscillators and digital synth engines have differences in sound quality, so programmers are more or less skilled in producing the sonic goods, it seems.

I don't own any myself, but I've been told by people I respect/who get great synth sounds (like Steve Roach) that the Access Virus line is really powerful and sweet sounding, especially the more expensive 'C' model. I've read up on it here http://www.vintagesynth.com/ and it does seem to offer pretty deep and complex modulation options, which is great for making swirling trance sounds that are alive and full of movement. I know trance artists use it. I don't really make trance (I like listening to it, though), but I reckon my Nord Lead3 (or any Nord) would be pretty useful in the genre... plus, they're very intuitive and a lot of fun to play with! Also, the Korg Microkorg looks toyish, but that thing can muster up some big sounds - and mine came packed full of great sounding trance-ey presets, so I'd imagine that's a good option. (I find using presets boring and don't do it, but if you enjoy using them that's cool too!)

But really you could use anything - I know you can make great trance (or any electronic) music just using softsynths, particularly if you get you head around Native Instruments' Reaktor or some of the synths you can buy for that, like Razor. FM8, Absynth, Massive - all great sounding soft synths capable of all a manner of trance sounds (and beyond.) But do check that vintage synth site out. And if you have the money, it probably is worth investing in some analog gear (like a Prophet or Moog), if only because it's a lot of fun. Perhaps even some modular stuff... now that's where the machines really come alive, right in a big modular system!

Hey CS2x, thank you very much for the reply!

I find hardware synths quite attractive, I'd like to have at least one, but there are so many models, types, categories, etc., that really get me confuse as to what exactly are the differences between one or another. But, mostly, I made that question as to figure out whether I should get an actual synth or just a controller (to use with my laptop).

They are indeed a lot of fun! But to be honest, I think you would do best to spend the same money on various soft synths (ones with deep capabilities only made possible through computer technology, not the kind that are emulating vintage gear), effects plugins (like the Valhalla plugs), a USB audio interface, MIDI controller and microphone. Some purists would deem that heretical, but really, there would be no limits with that setup! I have done some of my best stuff (as have others) like that.
