Smile Synthesizers

Hello everyone,
First off, I'm new to the community so, hey how you guys doin?
Anyways, I was previously in a Metal/Death Metal band and I quit because I wanted to do my own thing. I play guitar, but Ive really been wanting to get into a more experimental sound.
I have never owned a Synthesizer, and I was wondering if you guys could help me find a good one that isnt too expensive. And maybee give me a few tips on how to set up and get started creating my kind of music.

The sound I'm looking for:
A mellow, spooky, very experimental sound. A very eerie sound. Also, I will go back and add guitar with it.


Also while I'm here, I was wondering if anyone has any good tips on recording devices? and what kind I should purchase. Me and my old band had our own little set up for our recording, and we used a cheap recording mike, which wasnt the best quality in the world... at all... And, I would like to use computer software to record. Know any good programs???

No synth bashers, i'll stop you in your tracks.

I think synths are great, at least for prog and new wave, not so much when bands like Europe used them.

Anyway, for quality synthesizers, you can't go wrong with THE MOOG!!!



They're a bitch to tune, but they have the best sound quality of any synthesizer.

as far as software goes.... Cubase SX is top of the range.

i'd say you may want to get software (vs hardware) as well.. your possibilities are endless and you can use it record your songs as well..
