Synthesizer can be digital or analog. Nord, Roland and Prophet make some of my favorite digital synthesizers. Most synth fanatics though, feel the holy grail of synthesizers are the analog synths.

I happen to agree to some extent, especially since I live so close to the Moog manufacturing facility. The anolog sythesizers and modulators have a quality that, while can be closely rendered in a digital format, seems to have something that digital just can touch. It’s like the difference between an electronic drumset and an acoustic drumset.

Since there are so many options for synthesizer and they are not all created equal. We break down our reviews of synthesizers to consider what is included, how the tones sound, the ease of use, it’s value vs it’s cost and so much more.
