Winston Psmith Posted November 28, 2018 Share Posted November 28, 2018 there has been a huge resurgence in duplicating certain analog keyboards/synths into the digital domain. Been going on for 10 years , give or take. It may have helped reduce the price of the digitized product. Lots of buyers are nostalgic/sentimental about synths they owned in the 70's/80's where the preserved analog version is scarce and stupid expensive. @GregC - exactly right, the retro revival is in full swing in the Synth world, where you can find both Digital and Analog reissues of pretty much any famous, or infamous, Synth or Drum Machine from the 70's & 80's, alongside entirely new designs, based on classic concepts. I have two current Analog MonoSynths that aren't re-issues of previous models, but modern takes on old-school designs. IMHO, the excesses of the Vintage market drove companies like Boss, Ibanez, Dunlop and others to reissue long-extinct product lines. At this point, it's not hard to assemble a pedal array that would have been right at home in 1983, or even 1977, and have most of the rest of the band outfitted with similar retro gear. And, as d=halfnote points out, some of that old-school gear will seem 'new' to players who haven't gotten to try it out before; I hope they enjoy it as much as we did, the first time around . . .
