Ah.  Synth rock might not be too bad to start with.  For me, I hear the
acoustic guitar in there quite a lot, although that might be a bias.
There's a 'natural' aspect to it.  Organic synth rock.  o-synth rock.

Thanks for the comments !

I guess the 80s is a natural tendency since I haven't heard much of that
synthwave material that seems to gain some traction.

I still use stock sounds that I modify slightly.  I've started to learn
about how sounds are made so I'm building slowly a knowledge that will
at least be useful to tweak sounds appropriately.  Creating high quality
sounds takes certainly some amount of time.  I'd rather be making music
instead.  I appreciate a lot all the people that spend this time doing
so.  Sometimes I make a parallel with real instruments, eg. I play
guitar, form sounds, but I'm certainly not building any.  Maybe this
also applies to synthesizers and sound patches.
