Thank you Sirocco,
Well, as I say, I got my first synthesizer when I was only 14 after many long months of saving after a strange anxiety into the dance music scene. I persuaded my mum to help me out after I arrived at around five hundred pounds sterling, which was a grueling task. I think it was proof enough that I had some form of serious motivation into it.
I started on trance and moved over pretty much all genres of music before realising my heart was still there.
I'm only just turned 20 now, but I've been very lucky to have a good background in production to know exactly what I was looking for. In my present line of work (TV incidental music), my Virtuoso is nothing less than a dream machine. I'm hoping to have a future in Film Scoring and producing... an eclectic mixture though of classical, dark breakbeat, trance/hard house and ethnic.
My advice to you is to go for an acclaimed user friendly analogue modelling synthesizer, like my Novation. The Supernova II is an awesome synth/keyboard plus Waldorf's get the girls wet he he! Forget the Andromeda... In my eyes it ain't worth the money or the hassle. Very good system, but confusing and you won't learn much from it.
If you are not using a computer operating system then why not go for a workstation like the Triton Studio series (very good!) or the Yamaha Motif series (spent a lot of time with one in Singapore and the girls too!!!!).
Any questions you may have pm me anytime. I'm sure I'll be around!!
i would never get a workstation ;p
im thinking about picking up:
Access Virus KC Keyboard/Synth
Yamaha CS6x+An1x board
Roland JP8080 Rack/Synth
Novation Supernova II Keyboard/Synth
Elektron Machinedrum Rack/Synth
you can see what im saving for (and buying 1 by 1) at http://www.djandrewparsons.com/site
