this is a weird question to ask on a guitar-oriented site, but does anyone have any knowledge of synths? i am looking for a cheap one to play at shows and write off of. i am not that good of a guitar player, but i can write pretty well on a piano. also, what else would i need, such as an amp....

Sine wave, Saw tooth wave, Triangle Wave, Square wave... basic wave forms

hi frequency oscilator makes those waves, low frequency osiclator makes a modulation of those waves

ADSR filter controls the paramaiter of each waves sustaion realease, attack, decay.

Cutoff is like a big wah wah pedal... thats about it

There, some good information.

Grab a nice vintage synth. Anything that makes sound is a good investment as it will bring more sonic possibilities. This is great, even for a guitar player because you won't end up so closed minded like Pete_C_Bass.

alternatively, you could buy a MIDI Controller and get some soft synth software, FruityLoops is the obvious option

it depends if it is usb or not. if it is USB then all you need is some midi software to run on your computer to generate the sounds. If it just uses standard midi cables you need some sort of MIDI box like an M-Audio Fasttrack.
