Small? Yes. But they hardly have the best string sounds. I've heard organs with better strings. Try a module and a midi controller or not so small but not huge a jx 3p. Depends on how real you want it to sound.

Re: Akai Synthstation 49

Acually Akai has made their own app for it. As I understand it this is designed iPod touch and iPhones. Basically any app for these can be controlled with the synthstation. I'm not sure if it works with ipads actually. The videos I've seen were all with iPod touches.

Re: Novation Super Bass Station and/or Nova?

I think they're quite similar. Why not spend that money on something that fills any voids in your collection instead of covering many of the same features again?

Re: What are the best Electro House Synthesizers?

A good place to start would be to find out what these guys are using in their setups and see if there's any one synth they all use. Also are you looking to do software or hardware? I think in terms of hardware an analog modelling synth would probably be the most flexible, like an Alesis Ion.

Re: Chip Tunes Drums?

All good points, Hair. I guess I was just really stuck on Famicom sounds because there's a band called The Depreciation Guild who use them extensively with more conventional instruments and I love the way they work with guitars and and synths without becoming "chip tunes". They're very much dreampop...

Re: Chip Tunes Drums?

TheKeytarist- I tried downloading the program and it doesn't seem to be installing. colmon- I run a Mac, and they don't appear to have a non-Windows version which is too bad as it sounds pretty cool. kaeth- Thanks for the heads up. It appears as though most of these are pretty hard to find due to be...

Re: Chip Tunes Drums?

Hmmm I think I'm leaning more to a hardware route. I was looking around online for a few hours last night to get more information and it's kind of scarce or incomprehensible. (I don't think I'm nerdy enough to quite get it.) So the idea, I'm gathering is that I can use other people's samples (which ...

Chip Tunes Drums?

So I don't really know anything about chip tunes, except that my favourite part is the drums. I'm just wondering how a person gets these drum sounds to use? I know I like the ones from Famicoms, however, I don't even really know where these sounds even are in the systems, if that makes sense. Anyway...

Well I've been convinced and someone has offered me $300 for my EA-1 MkII, is that a good deal for me?

Re: Which Electribe?

Hate smart cards? http://www.vintagesynth.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=28511 If you have the dough, swing for the ESX. If not, the ES-1 is capable, especially if is synced to another drum machine. Nice find, Tallow! Unfortunately, I don't have the means for an ESX, maybe I will upgrade later when/...

Re: Which Electribe?

Thanks for the input and "meatballfulton" I've read the SOS reviews already and the other one one the ER-1 (and incidentally, EA-1). I guess the smartcards kind of put me off the ES-1, and I've not worked with samples before, so I'm a little hesitant. I'm aware the ER-1 sounds nothing like real drum...

Which Electribe?

So I've decided I want to do some live shows, however, the problem is, there's just me. Most of my songs are more indiepop than all that electronic, however, I do love drum machines. I'm wondering if I should go for a ES-1 or an ER-1. I want something I can program the song into and just hit a butto...
