Re: Future Retro XS

Hey, there's another Amos in the world of analogue? Nifty! Are you going to be at the NAMM show by any chance? I freakin' love my FR XS... I think it's serial # 42 or 24 or so... will have to look. Anyway, I've had it for a while now and it continues to thrill and amaze. I've dialed up some of the s...

I think there's also a bit-crushing frac-format module from the Harvestman.

If it didn't have the Moog logo on it, it would cost $1K No offense but you have no idea what you're talking about. In all fairness, there's no way you could, since this product has just been announced and there aren't a lot of details in print. Here's a detail for you: The Moog Guitar contains ove...

So I wonder who is the market for a specialized $7000 instrument if the big money stars who could easily afford it are getting comps? Moog doesn't comp anybody anything. Ever. You could be the hottest thing in music, and the best you'll get is 20% off list price. The basic philosophy is, if you wan...

yes it's awesome for glitch, you can use these crazy mathematical operators as modulation sources and get hellacious glitch from the microQ rack. Unfortunately it only has like 4 knobs and must be edited from a matrix-stayle arrangement if you want to use the panel to program it... so you're still b...

Now see here; nobody asked for a well-considered answer with any objective validity, so make with the pointless speculation already! :lol:

The Prophet-08 is tiny for a polysynth. Very lightweight (physically, I mean), too.

I'm going to have to say that if you're using Phil's Novachord as a basis for the sound of the Novachord, you're going to have to amend that to "I'd nominate Phil's Novachord," as his has a unique sound. :) . Granted, but at least I've heard Phil's Novachord, as opposed to, say, nominating a popula...

Weighing in at nearly 200 tons, Thaddeus Cahill's Telharmonium is without a doubt the fattest polysynth of all time. End of discussion. ;)

On a more easily-compared note, I'd nominate the Hammond Novachord as a polysynth of clearly superlative fatness.

put the bass on a compressor that has a side-chain input. Feed your kicks to the side-chain input. Adjust the threshold and compression level until the bass sucks back when the kick hits and blooms in between kicks. You'll get thumpy pumpy goodness. Here's me doing that with a simple bassline and ki...

There's nothing like playing with a real drummer. However I personally can't stand the sound of an acoustic kit in my music. I am so happy that I finally found a live drummer to work with, who plays an electronic kit. We take the audio from his Roland drum brain, and run it into the dBlue Glitch VST...
