Re: Star Fleet - Original Television Soundtrack Recording.

I'll have to seek out the French version if Shuki Levy was involved. Other than the UK version, the only other one I've heard was Kyoji Yamamoto's Japanese original! (although I preferred the UK version) Shuki Levy's a bit of a fave of mine for theme tunes, particularly his work on Ulysses 31 (anoth...

Star Fleet - Original Television Soundtrack Recording.

I loved Star Fleet as a kid, and in particular, the music (I believe the same music was used in the US version too) - maybe this is partly why I gravitated towards synths in the 90s, who knows? Anyway, after nearly 30 years, Paul Bliss, who composed and performed the music, was approached to remaste...

Re: Bring back the Vacuum Fluorescent Screens on Synths!

I completely agree - I much prefer those old displays over backlit LCDs any day. The Ensoniq ESQ-1 interface was a delight because of the huge lit up display and surrounding buttons.

Re: REcording a bass guitar

Here's a couple of low-cost things to try, which have worked for me in the past. - Zoom MultiFX. The likes of the 505/505II and the newer B1 and B2 units have amp modelling and you can connect the output to your mixer, or straight into the sound card for recording. Great bang for buck. - a cheap-ish...

The legacy of ValveForce lives on! They don't really need to have it on full display - even Behringer keep them covered up in ther VT-911/999 pedals!

Re: New Vintage : Korg SV-1

I've been impressed by the demos I've heard so far and like the styling of it - reminds me of the Polymoog. More the Nord Electro corner of the market than synths and is a more exciting product to me than a new synth - I reckon I could fit it in my setup.
