Some thoughts :

* There’s been a correct guess for one. Actually two.
* The Elf was 66.6666% right on one of his guesses.
* Stick to your guns : If it swims like a duck and quacks like a duck ..
* There’s only one of them with wave tables - a couple of S&S.
* One is a digital recreation of an ‘analogue’ old timer
* Only a couple of plugins - one of which is a bit of a red herring

What might surprise people is the cost of the machines used - I wouldn’t consider anything (that I know of) as ‘expensive’. Maybe one ... but there’s a whole other story about the cost of potential entries :)

Shout when we are bored of guessing and I’ll publish and be gosh darned (I’m so polite!)

Well that blows half of my guesses right out of the water :o

However...
A bit of extra info.
There is another one that can use wavetables, only it generates them itself when the patch is loaded, then plays them on demand - clever eh?
It's used in 5 of the 15 patches of one entry :tongue:

It was interesting to see one synth postulated against one of mine that was at quite the other end of expense to that of the synth I used, which was eye opening.

Yep I think the Elf was very close for mine (I have a sneaky suspicion he actual knows it)

And with some amazing detective work (intricate time analysis, notes and their order etc.) I'm quite sure I know who one of the tracks is by :D

Other than that no idea...

14 A Kronos with the top octave and a half sawn off?

Hmmm. Number 5 does it perhaps use physical modeling? Those flutey and reedy sounds are very good indeed.

Just listening to Track 3...nice glossy analogue sounds. I reckon this might be a quality VA hardware beast like a Nord or a Novation...

Go on - pick one. I can tell you that you have a 50/50 chance of being right! :)

Well the voiceover on that made me think Logarithm, but I don't think he's in this time, so maybe...

When I made my initial notes I put 'Kingkorg/Rich Hanson?' next to track 1 and 'Dave B?' next to track 3 but I'm not so sure now.

Let's just say it is track 14 ......

I think I should probably give up trying to guess synths, and see if I can re-train trying to tell chalk from cheese :cry: :?

Not guilty, your honour.
I did think about doing something with words and started on a piece, but it was becoming so horrific that I took the unusual step of outright deleting the entire project :tongue:

Nice of you to try to help Rich, but there's nothing to indicate which is which :?
I've heard that chalk is porous, and you can get things called cheese sticks, so does that mean the flat thing with the holes is chalk, and the rod things are cheese?

Close enough. Both will increase your calcium intake, so it's all good.
