Hi guys I don't no if anyone will read this because it is not linked with guitars, but please hear me out. I am sure that many of you on here can play keyboards and synths. I would like to know what would be the best synth or keyboard to emulate Depeche Mode's sound, meaning either there early carer or there mid to later carer. I would be really greatful if someone could inform me of a keyboard/synth that is good at covering their sound. If I can learn some classic synth songs, my guitar playing could be improved by a higher knowlage of other instruments.

While emulating their sound I am fond to try to emulate sounds of other bands including: Placebo, 30 Seconds To Mars, Muse etc.

Please Help.
