How much does a good synth cost?
Synths are remarkably affordable these days and can start at under $100. However, if you had $200 to $500 to spend you could get yourself a really decent synth that would enable you to make music and design your own sounds.
What's a good beginner synthesizer?
If you want to learn about how synthesizers work, then get the Mavis from Moog. It’s designed and built by the same people who make the classic Moog synths and has everything you need to start making sounds, understand filters and routing and get into patching.
Is an analog synth better than a digital synth?
No, because they can be very different and have different strengths. For traditional synthesis, you can’t beat the warm sounds of analog electronics, but for creative uses of complex technology, digital synths are all over it. The simple answer is that both are brilliant.
