Hola. I'm looking to buy something that'll make the type of synth and drum sounds on John Frusciante's To Record Water For Only 10 Days (example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qW0a7nOafgA).
I don't know anything about this type of stuff..I was wondering if these were the types of things I should be looking at? http://www.musiciansfriend.com/production-groove

I believe John uses a eurorack modular synth to run his guitars through as a processor, which could also be used to make noise on it's own. I think it's mainly Analogue Systems out of the UK.

And nope, most modular users don't use keyboards, at least standard western keys.

Well... for the real sound i dunno. But basically any synthesizer is able to create a sound like this and then just eq en compress it the way you want it. I'm pretty sure thats how we did it.

To an extent. What you said is kinda like, "Any guitar and amp could sound like his guitar and amp with a little EQ and compression."

I'm a bit sensitive when it comes to synths.

To an extent, what you are saying is absolutely true you can get extremely far with just some eq and compression. I just fiddled around with my synth and i guess i'm quite close just using a standard drum and some D16 Decimort on it, with some EQ and Comp. Did record it through an tube amp btw to get the dirty-ish sound. Its pretty darn close
