You know this is what you’ve been waiting for – the missing piece that will complete the jigsaw puzzle of your life. That’s right, at last there’s a Top Trumps-style synth-based trading card game! Trade your way to triumph as your 4-pole multimode filter beats your mate’s puny 2-pole lowpass. Gauge exactly when to play your monster polyphony versus a crappy monosynth. Then put the smackdown on your opponent with 25 punchcards-worth of programmable memory.
Synth Wars takes a wide swathe of droolworthy classic hardware and turns it into something you can take to the pub and muck about with. Comes in the form of nine pdf sheets for you to print out and cut up at home, plus full instructions on how to play (in case you somehow skipped being nine years old). Great for whiling away the time in the control room while the drummer is trying to nail that tricky 4/4 backbeat. To get your free copy, just click below to download everything you need.
http://www.rhythmicrobot.com show you how to get your synth looking vintage and playing great with our step-by-step guide to Getting Vintage!
Being a synth god isn’t just about knowing how to play. It’s not even mainly about that. What it’s really about is getting vintage. 90% of Keith Emerson’s “sound” was simply the result of oxidised jack sockets. You can achieve the same results as your synth heroes using our simple, easy-to-follow techniques, winning friends and standing out from the crowd in the process.
