Re: Modulus 002 --- new synth from UK

Can you comment a bit on the sequencer and the animator? From what I've been able to gather, each sequencer line is independent - but I'm not sure to what degree. I assume that they must be at least at the same tempo? And what about the animator? how much can you record, and can the lines be of diff...

Re: Prophet 12 new user review

while I understand the value of demos for people who don't have an instrument, and can't try one themselves, I'm just constantly amazed by how many people issue such strong opinions based solely on online demos.

Re: Korg MS-20 Mini

I received mine today - the result of a fine deal with the inestimable Sir Ruff..... My first reaction is, though I never swear in public, f**k YEAH. Actually, the ms-20 was my first synth. I had no idea what I was doing back then, and so, other than some vague memories of both positive and negative...

Re: VSE - Good trader/seller thread

Picked up Sir Ruff's ms-20, and it was a fine ol' experience. It doesn't hurt that I'm really enjoying the ms-20 mini.

Re: Prophet 12 new user review

PYM (the guy who does all the software for DSI) posted on another site that there is a shortcut to create a basic patch: Latch 1 button + HOLD in the arpeggiator section. He's fond of these kinds of undocumented shortcuts. I see no advantage to 'undocumenting' features that are quite helpful. I jus...

Re: Prophet 12 new user review

So what's not to like? Well, I have a few criticisms so far, but they are minor: ... A minor annoyance was the lack of a "basic patch" from which to start, especially given the reserving of a few slots for things like "LPF test" and "HPF test" It takes but a few seconds to go into the global menu a...

Re: DSI Prophet 12 release date?

Copying patches is actually really, really fast - you can hit "WRITE", turn a soft knob one click, and then keep hitting write, turning one click and overwrite a whole bank in maybe a minute. I have finally had some time to dig in to the synth. It's really, really good. The "oscillator slop" parama...

Re: DSI Prophet 12 release date?

I was joking to some degree about the presets....I suppose that they sounded ok, but I'm generally looking to start from scratch and make very untypical synth sounds. What I'd really like is for all of the slots to be filled by the 'basic patch', but it's not really a big issue because it's very fa...

Re: DSI Prophet 12 release date?

To those who have one.... I tried modulating lfo 1 frequency with lfo 2 at the full modulation amount, and it seemed to me like the range of modulation was very small. Has anyone else tried this? Hoping for user error here...(I tried putting in the modulation several times, and the range still seeme...

Re: DSI Prophet 12 release date?

I'm very impressed with it thus far. It's a great synth for sonic explorations.

I wish that I could wipe out all of the presets quickly. Horrible things.

Re: Archangel Sequencer

AH got a couple units in already and they sold. the rest of their order should be there soon. as far as i know, everyone who ordered one and was waiting on it has theirs now. the spacing is identical to the TKB but the knobs are slightly different, and yes "TKB for the rest of us" was the original ...
