Re: 80's detuned hardware synth?

Basically any synth can sound like you are after. There are a couple of synths that are still affordable, yet make incredible sound, such as the JX3P and the Poly 61. In one of my videos I show some of the Poly 61. I know that Com Truise uses the Korg Mono/Poly and Polysix VST's, not the real synths. The Mono/Poly has an "analog" dial where you can get oscillator detuning. Most synths have an LFO that can be put on slow and routed to the pitch and/ or filter which will give you the woozy, dreamy sound you are after. I made several tutorials on this type of thing. Here is one:

I actually saw this tutorial on another forum.

I'll go with a modified toy keyboard when I have the time for it, my other ones are just gibberish. I'm looking to buy El Capistan somewhere, it has some nice added mood to it that other delays don't.

Phonec VST synth from Psychic Modulation can do a pretty good detuned sound.

Ok, so Com Truise uses DCO polys for his pads a Mopho for his basses. To get the broken sounding pad sounds I just modulate the pitch of my oscillators with a REALLY slow LFO. On my 106 I've had great success by almost setting the LFO to its slowest setting and modulating the pitch of the oscillators very lightly. It makes for a great Lone/Com Truise pad sound.

Ok, it's not an 80's synth, but it's analog hardware
