Re: DSI Prophet 8

I have the module and yes it can do everything the keyboard version can do. Definitely go for the new potentiometer version because the older knobs are c**p and so is the Soundtower editor (for me at least). I don't think you will have problems with aftertouch but I am pretty sure it isn't polyphoni...

The A-90's action was great! I only know that the Fantom action isn't as nice.

The only synths I can think of with balanced outs are the Moog Voyager Rack, Roland Fantom, Access Virus TI Polar, and Kurzweil stuff ..The Jupiter 6 and 8 have XLR balanced outs..

Looking at the vids on YouTube Greg Hawkes' Shak...

Re: Need help with fxpansion guru .....

Did you try "Allow pads to respond to note-offs" under MIDI Options?

Also try clicking the Gate button in the Pad Edit screen on the pads you want to respond to note-offs.

Re: I just bought a NL2x. I'm sooooo disappointed...

To me the best thing about the Nords is how fun and easy they are to program. Too bad I don't care much for their VA sound. I hate the knobs on the DSI stuff.

Re: DI's for Synths

DI and pres have their place in a line-level studio: http://www.thelisteningsessions.com/session4.htm It would have been nice if there were a variety of sources, and not just a drum loop. A "dry" sample would be welcome, but not particularly important. The Listening Sessions are a comparison of out...
