As men­tioned ear­lier, the first wave of ana­logue syn­the­sis­ers were of­ten used as ef­fects pro­ces­sors. This was due in some small part to the fact that synths them­selves of­ten had ter­ri­ble tun­ing is­sues! It was also a slick way to cre­ate some­thing wholly new. Moog’s Min­i­moog, EMS’ VCS3 (and its suit­cased twin, the Syn­thi A) and ARP’s 2600 were all favourites for this sort of tim­bral tom­fool­ery. Many of to­day’s plugin clones can be opened on an ef­fects bus for pre­cisely this rea­son. If you have one, you owe it to your­self to give it a try.
