In the 25 years that I have been producing synthesizer music countless technical advances have completely changed the music creation and distribution process. It really is a great time for independent musicians.
I can't be bothered to list all of the different synthesizers and gear used to make my music these days. It is far too difficult to keep up with all of the changes, so the list ends up being out of date anyway. In the end it really doesn't matter as long as the music is enjoyable to the listener.
Lastly, when you do come across music that you really enjoy, please support that musician by purchasing their release, or even just a single track. It is a great way to show that you appreciate all of the time, effort, and resources they have dedicated to create those wonderful sounds for you to enjoy.
