Synthesizers have evolved over the years from the days of the Moog we have seen several classics retain their position while several new entrants rise to popularity as well. The debate of whether a digital synth is better than the analog version is never ending. Setting that aside, for those skeptical about actually investing in a synth here are the compelling reasons why you actually need one if you are a guitarist:
- Do more with the synth:
If you are going to be taking care of all the guitar portions in your band then you might find your synth to be your best companion. We now find a lot of synths that perfectly balance the benefits of the analog and digital synths and can be programmed to handle different sounds and sequence them for playback.
- You get better variety:
To rejuvenate your music and to add a unique dynamic addition to it you can use a synthesizer. This would only complement your pedal board and help add a little more variety to the guitar’s sound. You can tweak and tune to customize the sound in every way.
- Improves the quality of your music:
If you are thinking that you are only in your beginning days in your music journey and thus a synthesizer might not be essential, think again. It helps you evolve into a better musician. You also get to learn music with better understanding.
- Communication between the instruments is made simpler:
Most of the synthesizers come with MIDI. This makes the process of establishing a communication with the instruments very much easy. The best part is that you would be able to tweak the combined effects with the convenient knobs and controls provided on the synth. With everything synced you can be sure that you achieve the exact effect you desired.
