Hi!

What synth(s) inspired the creation of Eden? I’m asking because I want to try and make some of the presets in Eden on analogue gear. I currently have the Juno 2, JX-8P, Matrix 1000, Behringer Model D and Volca Keys.

Kindly,
Joachim

Eden uses wavetables, so if you wanted to emulate it soundwise, you'd be better off using something like Waldorf's 'Blofeld' synth, as opposed to an analogue type.

Wavetables or waveforms?

I think you'll have the best luck, generally, with Matrix 1000 (presuming you have an editor!). Not so much because of the raw OSC sounds but because a lot of Eden's magic comes from having 3 ENVs and 4 LFOs used in clever ways. I think the Oberheim is the closest match to that, feature wise with 2 LFOs, 3 ENVs and the tracking generators.

Interesting choice syrupcore. I assume you have one? I have one that is sorely neglected. I did notice sometime ago an iPad app that was a Matrix 1000 editor. That sound module would not be easy to tweak on its own. Getting that going is on my very long list of things to do.

I had a Matrix-6 for a few years. Miss it! Maybe we should make a trade. :)

HA! I need to use it first! It’s been a long journey, but I am determined to get the whole lot hooked up and make something epic. Epic to me at least...

Sounds like a big hassle. Let me make it easier on you by taking one thing out of the equation. #heretohelp

Ok! Not familiar with that one. Not going to buy anything new synth wise for a while since I've been doing that a lot the last 6-8 months. Have to afford a new sofa as well. ☺️

Ok! The Matrix 1000 has a lot of mod capabilities from what I've noticed. Haven't really dug deep into them yet. But ok ☺️

I would love to hear what the creator of Nanostudio/Eden have to say about synths and synth settings that inspired the Eden presets!

Thanks syrupcore! That’s very kind of you.
