Re: Minimoog Model D modification

I appreciate both your responses to me quarry...that definitely helps clarify the situation. I originally got this Mini from David White up at AnalogKeys in Cambridge, Mass. I've bought several synths from him over the years and all of them worked perfectly, and I'm pretty sure that he told me that ...

Minimoog Model D modification

What's up everybody. I have had a Model D for the past several years and have never tested out the modifications it had when I bought it. (Guess this beast on it's own has been more than adequate for my needs!) I'm assuming that it is some kind of CV Gate mod, but that is unfamiliar territory for me...

sampler/sequencer quandries

What's happening. I posted previously regarding synths with sequencers and was advised about the groovalicious merits of the Korg Emx-1. I could only use its onboard sounds, which I hear are pretty rad, but with some respectable bass synths at my disposal I came to the conclusion that I should get a...

Re: Synths with Sequencers

Thanks for your responses. I guess I was referring to step sequencing, although even after reading about sequencers and using the step sequencer on the Andromeda briefly, I'm not at all really versed in the practice as I am say subtractive synthesis or whatever. The drummer in my band programs beats...

Synths with Sequencers

Hola. Currently I use a Pro One, Wurlitzer, Nord Electro 3, and occasionally a Model D in my live set-up. I'd like to incorporate some sequenced synth action into things and "mechanize" s**t a bit, while obtaining some quality polyphonic sounds as well. I've owned some VA's in the past and really on...

Re: Complementary polysynth

Yeah the Pro One is my work horse. In some ways I like it more than my Model D. Out of all the s**t I've owned over the years it satisfies me and inspires me more than anything else, and I can instantly rip out some cosmic death funk on stage with it. Really has held up well over the past couple of ...

Re: Complementary polysynth

You're right, not trying to waste anybody's time, just like talking s**t with people about synths! Prolly can't go wrong with either so I reckon I'll just have to buy 'em both at some point.

Complementary polysynth

As usual, I find myself lusting for some more synthesized love and I wanted the opinions of the good people on this forum before pulling any triggers. I'm hesistant to post this because I know these things are subjective, but I've spent a considerable amount of time doing "research" on the matter an...

Re: Bass cabs

Thanks for the response man.Yeah, the Ampeg B200r has an open back and double ports. Boys in my band are always bitching about sound bleeding out the back of it, and it sounds like I'm losing oomph because of it, huh? Doesn't seem like the diamond series can really hang so much with the SVT line in ...

Bass cabs

What's happening everybody. As of now I'm running my keys (Pro One, AX-80, Minimoog) and Electro 3 through a 1x15 Ampeg B200r. No surprise, s**t ain't cutting it all in terms of representing bass potential of my synths, though the tone is decent for the Electro with tube treatment. Just wondering, a...

Re: Tube Overdrive on Synths?

Can't get too technical as too what's happenin, but I run the outs of the LPB2ube into my Mackie mixer, and then out from that into a Ampeg B200r 1x15. Sounds f**k great to me. Out of all the set-ups I've had over the years, lugging around big a*s cabinets, leslies, whatever, this is the easiest to ...

Re: Tube Overdrive on Synths?

Can't say enough about the Electro-Harmonix LPB2ube preamp. Use it live on my Wurlitzer electric piano and Pro One. Put some Tungsol 12ax7's in it and I get some really nice crunch on my s**t. Adds some nice scream to the Pro One's filter and makes my Wurly sound like it's being played through Ray C...

Re: microKORG vs. K-Station

Don't know if the issue has already been settled with the gentleman who originated the thread, but my vote would go for the K-station as well. As others have stated, I found it to be a f**k joke trying to to play that damn MK keyboard with my meaty-ass paws, and I didn't particularly enjoy programmi...

Re: Damage Control Womanizer

To answer my own question previously posted, in case anyone checks this out, I have settled upon the Electro-Harmonix LPB2ube preamp to run my s**t live. (s**t being Wurly and Pro One). No need for pricier Womanizer or use of Liquid Blues overdrive anymore either, as the Tungsol 12ax7's I put in the...

Re: my second poly

Not to generate a vs. thread between the Juno and JX, but since both have been mentioned as possible candidates for the gentleman's second poly, I'd say the JX-8p would be a great purchase. Having owned a Juno 6 & 60, and the JX twice, to me there's really no comparison. More versatility, and for my...
