Re: Synthesisers: technology vs composition

People that lose touch with new music think it's all going to s**t. Well, just browse through Bandcamp (where most new electronic music is self-released) or download Spotify, pay the monthly fee and explore new artists. There is a boom in music of every degree of complexity. One of the biggest genre...

Re: Novation Circuit Tracks (second gen Circuit) announced

Just reserved one. I'm a huge fan of the originals and this is great update on it! Some of my fave new features: -USB lithium battery is great and elimnates the old brick PSU or 6 "AA" batteries. -MicroSD for tons of samples and packs -Full size midi ports with a thru -Sample directly with an audio ...

Re: Mark Isham the hitcher score end credits

Don't know the clip, but Mark Isham doesn't get mentioned enough. He has a buchla modular he posts jams on instagram with. Really could be anything, and likely isn't a preset.

Fun fact, he also played trumpet for David Sylvian of Japan.

Re: Effects Pedals - Connect To Mixer?

A better option with looper pedals and mixers is something like a Mackie 1202. Having the ability to hit a switch and send a channel to a bus is way better than using the Aux sends with a looper. Use aux sends for other FX. On the 1202 I connect the looper (I use a pigtronix infinity) by sending Alt...

Re: changing sustain pedal polarity

It's not elegant, but I have a yamaha sustain that I simply opened up and reversed the mechanism. It hasn't had an issue since but obviously I can't recommend that unless you are into ghetto hacks.

Re: Korg DW8000 Revival

Did you search the forum. There have been a number of Dw8000 fixes and threads. I'd start there.

Re: Korg Electribe S (ES-1) Firmware and Factory Sounds

Seems that the old electribes have been abandoned by Korg, but there is one dude who seems very knowledgeable about the chip itself. http://electribe.cc/wp/about/ . Currently there is only an OS upgrade for the Er1. Perhaps he will open things up to the ES1.

Re: Ensoniq EPS sampling pitch problem..??

No idea what that "repair shop" is talking about. Granted, I've only had the EPS-16, and ASR. Neither of those have any weird pitch issues. What you sample is what you get. Sample rate has nothing to do with the pitch of the sample, but only effects the quality. I'd first check to be sure your defau...

Check the voltage regulators. They could be fried, which has happened to mine in the past.

Re: Vintage synths, are they really worth it?

I will always say no in today's over saturated market, but I will also point out that there will never be an accurate modern equivalent of the Maxikorg 800dv. Vintage is great for those super rare "unicorn" type synths that fly under the radar. The prices for vintage Roland polysynths is 80% trend a...

Volca Dreams (Volca Beats and Volca Keys) Dark ambient performance

Uploaded a new performance with my favorite minimal combo. 2 cheap behringer pedals and 2 volcas is all you need to create some really evocative music. Check it out!
