Re: Moog Voyager old school , cutoff acting as pitch

Yes, if the filter is self resonating, then it will generate a sine wave at the current cutoff frequency. So, adjusting cutoff will change the pitch. Try this: turn off ALL the oscillators. If you still get a tone, then it's the filter in self-resonance. Turn down the resonance knob. If nothing chan...

Re: Moog Voyager old school , cutoff acting as pitch

Are you saying that adjusting filter cutoff knob causes the pitch to change? That would be a pretty good trick since the OS doesn't have any kind of digital parameter control.

Re: A nice website for gear addicts

I went to the last page and saw some actual keyboardists. Lousy search mechanism, since anyone who plays keys as well as any other instrument shows up the list. There is no concept of "show me keyboardists who are not guitarists, bassists or drummers" for example :?

Off topic: It would be impossible for the moderators and site admin to determine whether or not people replying in HELP! are in fact expert enough to give reliable advice. For better or worse, when people volunteer advice you always get what you pay for.

Re: DX7 dual voice piano/pad

The original DX7 has 6 operators, so using an algorithm that with two carriers would allow creating layered sounds, such as a piano + pad. I'm no FM expert, so that's all I can tell you.

The DX7-II is bitimbral, so doing layers is simple.

It could be something as simple as the switch has failed. You bought this used?

Re: Help identifying grandfather's piece of equipment?

Very few real synths with built-in speakers. Roland did a couple based on the Juno 106 and Alpha Juno 2, Casio did the bizarre CZ-230. Do you mean it was made in the Northeastern US? Moog, ARP, EML, New England Digital (Synclavier) were located there but I can't recall anything that sounds like what...

Re: SH101 Help

You can't get MIDI out of the SH-101 with what you have. Your Kenton is what is called a MIDI-to-CV converter. In other words, it only converts MIDI to CV. It is not a CV-to-MIDI converter! CV to MIDI is a really difficult problem, because while MIDI has the idea of fixed pitch (a C1 is always a C1,...

Re: Synthesisers: technology vs composition

The obsessive need for pitch perfect sequencers with randomizers, euclidean generation, probability, etc. might point to this. We may be in an era where new gear is created in an echo chamber with user feedback driving the ship rather than a singular designers vision. The trend towards random music...

I stick to the point that there's a strong (to say the least) tendency to go for the obvious, facile solution in most modern electronic music.
Well, most of it is just pop music.
