What Will You Do When ALL Classic Synths Are Cloned?

When you finally have a copy of that classic synth you have always wanted, or even the real one, what will you pine for next?

More to the point: what HASN'T been done already and what can we look forward to in the future of music tech?

LOL, a bit of a troll thread,

But people owning Roland vintage gear are safe, that manufacturer is completely clueless. They claim "not chasing ghosts" while milking all their vintage synths and fame to sell cloud subscription, hypocrites...

I have all the ones from the 70's I want already, except for the Synthi VC3. 80's pop music sucked and those lame synths I lived thru is the reason why ... ignoring for the moment hair metal bands with makeup

Judging from what I hear on pop radio today, the first step is to get past the piano that's been en vogue for a few hundred years. It's by far the most common instrument I hear right now.

Fear not, the most forgettable music in history is almost over - software based music since the millennium ... at least those 90's EDM parties before that were pretty cool.

More seriously, just like guitars, brass sections and electric pianos what is going to happen someday is a new hardware instrument - not a synth - that finally changes the landscape.

I was hoping for the didgeridoo but it didn't quite become pop - yet.

Saving my money for the B4XT Ultra and BPS-16 when Uli gets really crazy and starts the sampler revival.

I’d want a clone of the clone, of course.

I will anxiously await the inevitable threads comparing the original to the copy. Followed by threads comparing the software version to the copy. Then... how the OG synth had that certain 'something' that isnt reflected in the new one. Rinse / repeat...

All your base are belong to us

I’m already not pining for anything and I don’t have a clone of anything.

Crash a small private airplane into an IRS office!

I'm still waiting for clones of 1990s soft-synths....

The only thing I want is a true 1:1 reissue of the SP-1200. I couldn’t be less interested in the various knock offs around. I don’t want anything aside from the exact beast (well ok maybe a built in SD card instead of the floppy drive), no additional sample time, no anything else.

When they've all been cloned, clone them all again, and again, and again, and again again. Clone the clones over and over. Or they could clone two synths into one, so pick a Jupiter 4 and an OB6 and mix the two synths together to form a super Jupiter 6. Much can still be done.

Roland could still remake their legacy machines as people will pay a premium for an exact copy in terms of sound and durability. I doubt they are interested but we never know, been saying the same thing for two decades now and have some old Rolands that I'd like new replacements for but think I'll be a 'ghost' before they get around to it at this rate.

Other than the Moog System 55, I haven't bought any clones I pined over. What I did buy however, has made me happy someone took the time to do it affordably.

- Moog System 55 / Poly D
- Synclavier
- ARP Odyssey
- ARP 2600
- ARP 2500

The boutiques were inevitably disappointing for me.
The Reface though, were very cool! I got all four.

As time moves on new classics are born, thus the cycle will never end.

I've had most of the classic synths that I've wanted in the past. I'll just do what I do now, keep looking for something new that makes interesting/different sounds.
