A thread to list the synths used besides the Voyager.

For me:

Clavia Nord G2 Engine

Music can Name the Unnamable and Communicate the Unknowable.

'I am... everything is... changed... they're calling... your face... interwoven... who is...' Patient mumbles inaudibly to a tune (sounds like 'Thanks for the memory).

Besides the Voyager... (in order of use)

Hartmann Neuron
Doepfer/Analogue Solutions/Wiard modules
Korg MS-20 (my first synth; bought in 1980, after working all summer...)
Buchla/Nearfield Marimba Lumina
Korg MS-2000R
Nord Micro Modular
Doepfer 404
Technosaurus Microdon/Cyclodon

And as far as software...

Reaktor 4
Moog Modular V 2.0
Reason 2.5
Da Hornet (Wasp emulation)
Le Synthe (VCS 3 emulation)

I used to have a Pro-One (bought new in '81), but sold it after Katrina... Kinda regret it, now that we're moving back to New Orleans...

Access Music Virus TI (keyboard version)
Clavia nord electro 2 73
Clavia nord lead 3
DSI Prophet '08
Korg Poly 61
Yamaha DX7

I'm very happy with this's taken years to get here but it really complements my style well. The Korg Poly 61 is in the mix since it was my first synthesizer back in the mid 80' can you not have your first? :-)

Several, but especially the Arturia softsynths and the Roland V-synth XT.

The Arturia synths are brilliant when you get into programming them properly and if you ignore all the garbage from people who moan about minor bugs or who complain about whether they're as accurate as they could be. Treat them as real instruments and they'll respond like any really good synth.

The Roland's brilliant once you ditch all the crap among the patches they supply, and you create your own waveforms.

Moog Voyager AE
Dave Smith Evolver

NI Absynth 3

In the studio I use a M-Audio keyboard MIDI controller. Live I use a MOOG Etherwave Theremin and a Roland HandSonic HPD-15 as MIDI controllers. Soon I will be adding the Eowave Persephone for studio and live use.

That's it (for now). I want to take the time to learn how to best use all of this stuff. The learning curve gets longer all the time!

I know a ROMpler isn't exactly a synth, but what I use most:

DSI Polyevolver
E-Mu Turbophatt
Matrix 6R

I have a lot of other ones hard and soft, but I use these the most right now.

Little Phatty Stage-what I take to gigs
Sequentil Circuits Prophet 600-For funky ass polyphonic bleep
Roland Juno 6-for arppegiation and pads-also good for bass sounds that are different than moogs bass
ARP String Ensemble-the classic
also using a fender rhodes, wurlitzer 200a (in the shop right now-makes me very sad), and a hohner D6 clavinet
what's missing: a freaking B3 that's what!!!! (probably gonna have to settle for a nord electro-although I tried the nord stage and it's an awesome board!)
