Re: OB-8 vs. Jupiter 6?

I would love to have any of those, as both are definitely classic synths. With the OB you get extra voices (which can be useful) and with the Jupiter you get multimode filters (which is somewhat rare when it comes to polyphonic analog synths). I think any of those would be a nice addition to any set...

Akai MPC500 gets noisy in Record Mode?

Hi I had some time today and decided to try and sample a bit with my Akai MPC500, that I got used some time ago (never tried this feature so far as I didn't have much time, so just sticked to play some sequences with imported samples). But when I tried to do that today, I noticed that as soon as I g...

Re: Novation A-Station advice please

I think the differences in color is to match their current product-line at the time.
When the A-Station came out, they had the Supernovas and Novas, in blue.
Later on they had the KS-series, in silver, so they changed the color to match it.

At least that's what I think I saw written somewhere...

Looking for SSM2044 chips and Kawai SX240 parts

Hi I am looking for a set of SSM2044 chips. I'm also looking of parts for my Kawai SX240. It turns on but the interface just acts weirdly so I'm not sure what can be the problem... but if anyone has experienced the same problems with his/hers SX240, please let me know what parts I might need. The SS...

Re: Roland jx10 (others) display coil data

Can this problem cause the screen to get extremely bright too? My MKS-70 has this problem, all the segments get illuminated and it's just impossible to read anything... I also noticed that the illumination also depends on the amount of segments that are supposed to be on, so if the text that was sup...

Re: Will FM ever be sought after ???

I think you can produce really nice sounds with FM. There are some really good demos on youtube of really nice pads obtained with the DX7. I think a big difference to analogs is the availability, or at least I'd expect many more FM synths to have been produced when comparing with analogs, no? Also, ...

Roland MKS80 - No sound...

Hi I was trying to play with my Roland MKS80 today but unfortunately I can't seem to get any sound. I checked the MIDI Chanel and I am using the correct one and the MIDI message LED blinks when I play, but no sound comes out, either from the phones out or from the unbalanced outputs... Anyone has an...

Re: Trident mk 1 schems..?

What's the concrete problem you have? In mine I can't use the synth section all the time. If I just use the memories it works 100%, but if I switch to manual mode or the 3 piano presets, it doesn't work as it should (seems to just produce a really long filter-sweep). The strange thing is that the de...

Re: Roland Connect - Countdown!

In order to compete with Korg, Roland will have to pair the V-Synth with the Fantom; the resulting Fantom V would be a VERY capable machine. Taking the Fantom G as a starting point and improving what's already there & including the V-Synth engine, will certainly make me reach for my wallet. I feel ...

Re: What's a Teisco 110-F worth these days?

Considering all the features it has and the prices of similarly featured vintage analog monos as well as the good sound it has, it should be worth around 1000 euros. But likely the current range of prices is more around 600-800 euros. I'd say that is an excellent price considering all its features, ...

Re: Turning your JX-3P into a pseudo-Jupiter

Will this be available for a Roland MKS-30 too? I asked Murray, and he said: "I will be looking at making a kit for this once the 3P is finished." This is definitely good news for MKS-30 owners. Speaking of other synthesizers, Murray and I have briefly discussed possible modifications for the MKS-8...

Re: Rack Drum Modules?

I have a Pearl DRUM-X and for electronic percussion sounds I think it is amazing. Fully analog (1 Bass Drum, 1 Snare, 3 Toms), trigger-ins (no MIDI) and individual outputs. It also has 8 programs for you to store your own sounds. There are a couple of videos in youtube of it. Not sure about how much...
