Re: Arturia - opinions?

Before you commit entirely, consider the ME80 by the folks at Memorymoon. I am very impressed with it, and heartily recommend all three of their offerings.

Re: Arturia - opinions?

Arturia's softsynths are fine emulations of their respective instruments. Their method of copy protection is somewhat questionable, but I suppose that sentiment is as subjective as the softsynths are themselves. My own experience with them is limited to the demos. Solderman nailed it right on the he...

Looks great! I had a Casio MG-510 MIDI controller guitar (same thing, but no onboard synth) I loved it, and it tracked really well.

Is that a floyd rose tremelo on the guitar pictured?

My PC didn't have the easiest time of it either. I'm running an athlon 3000+ at 2.2 Gigs. With 512 megs of RAM (Maybe a gig of RAM would solve the problem.) That aside, the thing is just downright impressive. I've never played a real Jupiter-8 (probably never will), but this synth does have the same...

VA is on its last leg, Um... Because it's getting more accurate in emulating analog circuitry? Because it's getting cheaper? Becaues there's a proven demand? They still have a long way to go in the accuracy department. Not to say that VST's like Prophet-V, CS-80V etc aren't accurate, but some of th...

In my opinion virtual analog has just about run its course. Manufacturers beed to do something to re-kindle interest....more poly, more effects and a couple of other things thrown in is not going to sustain a company in the long run. I think Waldorf have made the right move with their new stromberg...

I agree. If Roland did make a JP-8 MKII, I'd buy it in a second.

I still like to use my 486 and old SPG software. I agree that a C64, older Mac, or an Atari ST is still the ultimate MIDI sequencer. I'm considering the purchase of an Atari ST for my sequencing needs. Just because there is no latency at all.

I've only had the best of luck sending eBay items to buyers in Canada using USPS. I don't know why some people get reluctant to do that, as it is much better then UPS (they don't man-handle the item).

I'd like to say that Heath (hfinn) was exetremely pleasent to deal with, and even though there were shipping complications (completely out of his control, and entirely UPS's fault) He was able to get the insurance for me so I could use that to make the repairs, and everything turned out great, Would...
