Synths that pair well with tb 03 and tr 08

Postby pancake_lizard » Thu Jul 23, 2020 10:04 pm

Hi I have 4 pieces of gear as I’m new to music production

Roland tb 03 and tr 08
A Korg minilogue
And a Korg volca fm.

The Tb and the tr sound great together when I’m making acid beats but the problem I’m having is when I try to incorporate the other synths everything just gets to sounding like noise.

I don’t know if it’s me or the gear but it seems like when I try to layer the volca or minilogue over my 303 and 808 pattern everything just gets drowned out and sounds noisy instead of musical which isn’t what I want.

If you’re new to music production most likely the issue is your arrangement and/or mixing skills, rather than anything to do with the synths used, and will be resolved more by developing those skills, than buying something else...

How are you mixing the sounds of these instruments together?

I have the tr 08 as the master clock connected midi into the Tb 03 and than I connect the Tb 03 midi into the volca or minilogue depending on how I’m feeling at the moment

But how are you mixing the *audio* from these devices?

When you say 'drowning out' are you referring to the sound being large and overwhelming?
