I think we've generally worked on a principle of :
1. publish everything blind.
2. After a day or so (or a few comments so that it's not the next post!) say who the contributors were. maybe a breakdown of the synthesis types used
3. after another couple of days, we give the full results
I originally was up for the 'guess the synth' but it's now just too hard - the sheer quantiity, quality and low cost of synths today mean that it's just too hard. Last time round, I was completely flumoxed by an entry done completely on a Prophet 6 - and I own one! Likewise Roland Alpha Juno.
And in some respects, that's what makes this the most interesting. By picking one synth and using it for lots of stuff, we naturally seem to avoid the more cliched sounds. Which is half the point - I have a killer 'soft pad' on my JD800/990, and I've always reached for it in the past, but lately I'm starting to look to other things. We will always have certain sounds which we are drawn to, but sometimes moving out of comfort zone is a really good thing.
(I'll come back to this topic after the results - one of the entries almost threw me and I'm curious to see if it was a 'non comfort zone' thing, or a deliberate attempt to throw us off.)
