Re: Stupid E-mu Vintage Pro Question

sounds to me like you may be on the wrong midi channel/part? The EMU 2000's are always in "performance" mode and have all 16 channels available to you at all times. I haven't owned one for a while so I can't walk you through it too well - but, check that the channel you are on on the proteus (top le...

Re: an1x questions

the bug with the AN1x scene morph buttons on startup is pretty well documented - check out/search the yahoo group. It apparently only affected the first runs of the AN1x (not sure about the total numbers/percentage of ones made) and was solved soon after with an upgrade of some sort. If you have one...

Re: Three way VA shootout! JP 8080 vs MS2000R vs Novation No

I've owned all 3 and sold all three. I've pretty much owned every VA there is(except for a nord) and the only one I've kept, bought a few times and in multiple forms is the Yamaha AN1X (oh, and the VA in the alesis fusion I like quite a lot). but about these three... JP8000: amazing interface and gr...

Re: Arturia MiniBrute - analog monosynth

Went ahead and pre-ordered it. First new synth I've ever bought in my life. This will probably be my first new synth purchase as well. This is the first time I've ever felt that a synth was worth the price new. Hopefully other companies will take note: it's not impossible to make things that are af...

Re: USE Audio Plugiator?

they sound great (if they sound the same as the other creamware versions - i haven't actually heard the plugiator). but, they are not really editable on their own, probably one of the ugliest pieces of hardware I've ever seen + were poorly marketed. grab one! I probably will in the near future - alo...

Re: roland sh-32 or jp-8080

8080/8000! I really wanted to like the sh32 - i think it it looks great... but, that's about it. The interface is really cramped and somewhat baffling/non-intuitive - as is the synth engine itself (certain things disable other things etc...). The sound was ok - but, wasn't interesting enough for me ...

Re: EMU XTREME LEAD-1

hi, I used to have a bunch of the emu stuff (the xk6 was my first non-casio keyboard!)... and, the xl1 soundset isn't that bad - especially if you are looking for big dancey synths/leads/stabs. You would also get a lot of other bread and butter electronic stuff (basses, pads, sfx) + some pretty good...

Re: 3 for snow..?

personally, I wouldn't do it - keep in mind I'm not a fan of the basic virus sound. the best thing I found about the access stuff is the build quality and design of it - the snow doesn't really show this off with it's small interface (although it is still built well). I find the access and waldorf s...

Re: An1x V Maudio Venom

spend some more time with your an1x! I've had just about every VA (roland jp8000, sh32, korg z1, prophecy, ms2000, microkorg, novation nova, x-station, redsound darkstar - just awful!, alesis micron, fusion, waldorf microq, virus B, virus C - maybe more? I've had too many! no nords though!) and, in ...

Re: What are the keyboards/synth and drum machine is this vi

yeah, I believe justice is mostly plugins, samples and production techniques - minimal hardware.
the big tech walls in their videos and on stage are just for show.

Re: Micro Q vs Virus Rack vs Supernova

hi again, if the difference is only 100 - i'd go for the desktop. The best part of a virus, imo, is the hardware and user interface - it is quite inspiring to fiddle with. as far as the supernova vs. the KS: I'd say they are quite, similar - but, the supernova is capable of so much more subtelty and...

Re: Micro Q vs Virus Rack vs Supernova

I'm not a dance or trance guy - so, keep that in mind, but... I've owned both the microq and a couple of virii (indigo 1 + 2) and the novation nova... I'd say waldorf and access synths are the closest competitors soundwise - they can both do roughly the same thing (harsh digital analog emulation) an...
