Being a synthesizer collector as well as a musician, throughout the years, a large number of electronic music instruments have been used in the studio of Lunar Structures. The setup of synthesizers and sound devices is ever changing - units are replaced or simply break down, while new ones are acquired, some new, some old. For a non-synthesist they may look similar, but for a synthesizer afficionado, they are as different as the fingers on your hands!
Some of the synthesizers are analog monophonic instruments, while some are digital and polyphonic. Some are virtual software based instruments running from within a computer. For practical reasons, not every unit is connected at once, but they are shifted in and out as required.
Composing, arranging and recording is done digitally using computers and software. For mobile uses, a simplified setup is used with laptops and with virtual synthesizers only. An even simpler live jam setup does not use computers at all, just sequencers, loop units and rhythm machines.
