Re: Moost Moog for the Buck

I'd definitely look into the Grandmother (out of context that could sound really weird). The Sub37 is also great if you have the money. Vintage, look out for micromoog or realistic mg-1.

Toraiz AS1

The Pioneer DJ Toraiz-AS1. Seemingly flying under the radar and probably not selling well. It is rarely mentioned. I tested one out a few days ago and was immediately gripped by the raw quality of the sound. The other features really don't matter much to me or my workflow, but the filter and VCOs se...

Re: Which is historically more important: The TR-808 or the Linn LM1?

I think the Linn for sure. Not just sonically, but in the way it could be programmed. The 808 was severely lacking in any kind of realistic drum programming. The better theoretical question could be, "What drum machine today will have the impact of the Linn LM1"?

Re: PolySix worth buying?

Delayed triggers happen with the korg keys of that era (i have a poly61). The fact that some keys were quiet when triggered is more worrying to me, and could be a deeper issue than contacts. Sounds like you made the right choice.

Re: Ultravox

Maybe some Simple Minds. The first 4-5 albums have a lot of good synth and post-punk instrumentation.

Re: Over 1000 Vintage Synthesizers in one room (Swiss Museum of Electronic Music)

The stuff had been hoarded (and neglected) for many years before it ended up in a warehouse, and the state many instruments are in is slightly doubtful. They seem to be too underfunded to keep everything in working shape, and their backlog must be enormous. Yes, it does look nice but it is slightly...

Re: Question re: "jam boxes" e.g. NI Maschine, Novation Circuit etc

I haven't used the Squarp, and ultimately ended up going for an Elektron Octatrack instead because it' just does a lot more. The sequencer is not as powerful as the Squarp, but the sampling capability and drag and drop of samples onto the CF card tipped me that side. Also, I'm all for things using t...

Re: Over 1000 Vintage Synthesizers in one room (Swiss Museum of Electronic Music)

That's absurd! Why does it make you depressed PPG? I'd love to go there and play around someday. Switzerland isn't exactly nearby, but it certainly isn't too far from you! I like "lookmum", he's doing it right if you ask me, regardless of the stimulants.

Re: The 4-op Yamaha DX synths

Deflemask is great if you want to use PC software and is what I've used to directly port music to the console. The YM2612 was actually even more limited than most Yamaha Dx 4-ops. A lot of what gives the Sega Genesis music that particular sound is the journey and limitations you have to go through w...

Re: New synth from Novation

That certainly ticks all the boxes for me. Great design/layout, and really powerful. Price is in a pretty fair range too! I'm pretty sold on this one.

Re: Question re: "jam boxes" e.g. NI Maschine, Novation Circuit etc

Check out these and research the specs and features on youtube. It's really hard to say what you need or want so you probably just need to try one and see. I have no experience with ModX, but I avoid anything that has a touch screen like that because I might as well use a laptop at that point (i hav...

Re: Synthesizers with awesome arpeggiators

The Novation Ultranova has a really crazy arp with a ton of patterns, and great midi sync. It doesn't reset on keypress, but rather listens to clock, so you're always in time when playing new chords.

Re: Bass Station 2 firmware 4.14 AFX mode

Novation is killing it on providing quality to their gear. I'm really happy with the Circuit line, and these updates have kept my Bs2 in heavy rotation for a while now! Can't wait to update and give more detailed thoughts.
