All-Star Synthesizers

Our customers' top-rated synth gear

Are you an analog purist, or do you prefer the functonality of digital modeling and presets? Do fat wooly '70s synths ring your bell, or do you think lush '80s pads are rad? Whatever your taste, a synthesizer is a powerful tool in any musician's arsenal. We've taken all the synths at zZounds, put them through a high-pass filter so only the top remained, and added testimonials from real customers who couldn't say enough good things about their favorite models. Check out our list and find one that resonates with you!

Korg MicroKorg Analog-Modeling Synth/Vocoder

"The sound on this little honey can BLOW YOUR MIND!!! Deep rich bass, or out-of-this-world spacey leads -- you will LOVE these sounds, guaranteed!"
- Corey in Boise, ID

"Either clean your slate for the day or set an alarm because you will become so immersed in musical creation that the time will fly by. My Micro is so full of sound options that I haven't found any limits."
- Brian in Milton, VT

"Right out of the box I started making great sounds with it. 125% satisfied. Great for live as it is in the studio."
- Shawn in Brooklyn, NY

Yamaha MM8 88-Key Synthesizer

"I bought this keyboard as a master controller to replace a wonderful Studiologic Numa White, which I bricked trying to update its firmware. However, unbelievably, I actually like the keyboard action on this Yamaha MM8 much better. It is very responsive and one can play pianissimo passages easily with no missed notes."
- Jan in Richmond, IN

"Electric keyboard sounds are top notch, some great brass sounds. Synth tones are great too, and playable pretty well for only attack, resonance, cutoff, and release dials."

"The keys have fantastic action and are very expressive. This product gives you a huge sound bank to choose from."

Novation UltraNova 37-Key Analog-Modeling Synthesizer

"I bought it from zZounds and was extremely happy with the sounds and feel of the unit. It is plastic but seems strong. The sounds are out of this world! Pro level!"
- J.K. in Carlsbad, CA

"The touch controls are quite impressive and the most fun feature of this synth. The gel buttons are nice as well and the layout is very well thought-out.
- Dan in Jacksonville, FL

"The UltraNova is a beautiful instrument with a multitude of totally astonishing sounds!"
- John in Culver City, CA

Roland GAIA SH-01 37-Key Synthesizer

"A great combination of old-school interactive with new-school charm. Takes you back to the early days of synths where you had to find the sound you wanted within your soul."
- Barry in Mundelein, IL

"The best part is, if you can't find a premade patch to fit your needs, you can easily and quickly whip up your own custom sound from scratch."
- Josh in Tempe, AZ

"Everything on it is very old-school, so you can get a majority of the vintage synth sounds and/or build them easily."
- John in Trinity, FL

Waldorf Blofeld Desktop Synthesizer Module

"The fidelity of the sounds that come out of this thing are astounding to say the least. It is, bar none, the best-sounding virtual analog synth for $500 in existence."
- Dan in Jacksonville, FL

"The Waldorf Blofeld is a sound design magic box with lots of flexibility and powerful sculpting options. Ideal for studio/recording work because of the slightly menu-dive heavy interface."
- Ian in Portland, OR

"I've dropped this thing on hard floors several times, and each time the Blofeld comes up good as new. I've also accidentally poured water on it twice, and the thing never suffered a glitch, and no rust!"

Casio XW-P1 Performance Keyboard Synthesizer, 61-Key

"I can't remember the last time I had so much fun with a synth. The lead sounds are wicked and it is easy to edit and make your own. The Hex Layers are really cool too."
- Steve in Kansas City, KS

"This is an excellent entry-level keyboard. It has a good collection of voices and features such as the sequencer and arpeggiator. The drawbar organ emulator is worth the price of the keyboard."
- Jeffrey in Kennett Square, PA

"The Hammond emulation with the mini-drawbars is pretty damn good, even if the Leslie simulation is less than. The sequencer/arpeggiator is surprisingly good, making it a very useful musical sketchpad, as well as a performance feature."
- Paul in Waterville, ME

Arturia MicroBrute Analog Synthesizer Keyboard

"Plug it in and you are instantly creating sound from thin air. It has very powerful ASDR faders that are sweetly smooth and are very sensitive."
- Thomas in Mt. Shasta, CA

"Sequencer is a really cool feature that allows you to jam on a repeating pattern. You also can plug a guitar in for distortion and modulation."
- Brian in Dayton, OH

"Thick analog sounds that you could bathe in. An onboard step sequencer that is easy to figure out and fun to play. Knobs and switches all over the place that deform and reform the sounds. Everything you need to be your own sonic mad scientist."
- Mark in New Orleans, LA
New, $299 or 6 payments of $49.84 | Learn more »

Moog Sub 37 Tribute Analog Synthesizer Keyboard

"It's a modern Moog that brings classic analog synth for a ride into a distorted, dirty future. It's perfect for hard electronic and industrial types of music. Great for sound effects too!"
- Gary in Archbald, PA

"The Sub 37 is the synth I've been waiting for. I was weary to get into hardware because I had such a connected digital setup. But, I can't say enough how important the Sub 37 is to my creative process now."
- Hoyt in Portland, OR

"This is something you can be creative with for years...the sound is beautiful or oblivion, mechanical or evolving."
- Novern
$1,499 or 8 payments of $187.38 | Learn more »

Novation Bass Station ll Analog Synthesizer Keyboard

"The Bass Station II sounds excellent, just like a high quality analog monosynth should. Running it through the PA, a keyboard amp, or even through headphones, one can feel its raw sonic power."
- Fred in Chicago, IL

"The sound is absolutely exceptional and spans the gamut of being very clean to absolute chaos."
- Benjamin in Las Cruces, NM

"With all the dials and sliders at my fingertips, it was easy for me to learn what parts of the sound I was actually controlling, which made learning so much easier. The Bass Station II patch library software makes organizing patches easy also."
- Nicholas in McLeansboro, IL
