this is great! I'm here at work listening to Loverboy! I got to see them Summer of 1982 at Day On The Green in Oakland, Ca. (That's how old I am!!)I always liked them and they put on a great show! Their synth sounds were a big part of their appeal to me. Nice to know what he was playing. :D Uh oh, ...

i balked for while for the same reason: wait, you want me to pay at least as much and possibly more for the CONTROLLEr than i paid for the SYNTH?! but let me tell you, it's worth getting over that way of thinking...b/c for the combined price of the two you get a synth that excels in so many ways th...

I bought my QY-8 (the silly Nintendo one) from goja It was old B stock I guess. After sitting for umpteen years the battery contact string for the positive side was rusted. It crumbled after putting batteries in it. It works fine with an AC adapter. Some of the sounds are pretty good. It's a pain to...

Re: I've re-entered the vintage realm... a TX802!

I now have a vintage synth again! I snagged this beauty on eBay. It's a mint condition Yamaha TX802 FM tone generator, like it just rolled out of the Yamaha plant 20 years ago... http://www.patzcatz.com/keyboards/dsc02830.jpg http://www.patzcatz.com/keyboards/dsc02831.jpg The warranty card shows it...

"If it sounds good, it is good." I don't remember who said that, but my dad has that quote on the wall of his studio in the form of a small cut-out piece of a magazine or newspaper. It makes sense. It just has to sound good. Easy and fun programmability would be nice too though. :) Your dad has a s...

Electribes- cool little boxes that can be had for $100 - $200. ESQ-1- only get one if it works correctly, they can be had for $150 - $200. Akai AX's - $250 - $300 Alpha Junos are going for really cheap right now and I'm not sure why. I saw an Aj2 for $175 BIN and one with some issues ( a few dead k...

Re: The best synth for a complete begginer? ;0

I'm a begginer. I want to buy a synth. I'm just wondering, which one would be the best. A synth that you know, is not complicated or anything and I would have fun with it as well as giving me the chance to learn a thing or two about synths. Any suggestions at all? P.S. I have no price ranges, I can...

Re: Roland JV-90 stuck in never never land

I'm fairly technical, but with this board I feel like I'm on the junior varsity (JV). If you made it past that horrible pun, read on. I found this board on Craigslist and the knucklehead had it in some sort of edit mode so I couldn't even get a sound out of it when I tested it at first. Finally aft...

I love my Alpha-Juno 2.. it's my main synth.. the little brother must be great aswell.. for that price it's a real deal.. ;) Is there any difference between the two other than the # of keys and aftertouch / velocity.
