Re: MIDI controllers for piano and synths?

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. I don't really need a midi controller with a hammer action keyboard, but I would not mind having the feel of a piano keyboard. The AKAI you mentioned looks fine, but that's a bit too over-powered for me, I don't need those many knobs and sliders. I will check more item...

MIDI controllers for piano and synths?

Hello, I'm looking for a midi controller that works perfectly with Logic Pro X. I will mainly play piano vsti, but also orchestral sounds and synths. More specifically: -49 keys (37 if the controller is really amazing) -I play piano so, ideally, weighted. If not weighted, I'd like a very good respon...

Re: New song out! 80's Scritti Politti/Madonna/Thompson Twin

Hi, I'm listening through the headphones and I must say that the mix is still wrong, same reasons above: honestly it's painful to my ears. End of the bad news. ;) The most important thing is that the song is very nice and, despite the bad mix, it sounds like a "modern 80s" song. I'm very coriuos to ...

Re: Synthpop montage - 80s Mellow Instrumental

Same impressions as the other time, everything is in the right place, but I think that this new track is even better for me, more inspiring. Nice pictures too.

Re: Track with an Akai Ax60

here's another track I made for the "one underrated synth" contest. Although it's inelegible because I used a delay. http://soundcloud.com/mattplanner/struck-down-by-a-rubber-axe soundcloud page I like this second one, crazy bassline! Everything else is ok but I think that a louder arpeggio would b...

Re: Synthpop 80s Inspired Instrumental Theme

I think that both tracks couldn't be more 80s than what you did. :lol: They could have been the soundtrack of movies such as "Weird science", "The breakfast club", "The wizard", "Karate kid" and so on, I loved that cheesy films. The 2nd one is stucked in my head since 2 days, not bad at all. I thoug...

Re: Sega Megadrive FM anyone?

FM is, in short, a b***h. In long - Its an easy synthesis method to understand but Yamaha's implementation of user interface is absolute garbage. I can fluently program my DX9 now via said front-panel interface but I still find it much easier to program a MegaDrive with a GUI infront of my face on ...

Re: Sega Megadrive FM anyone?

The chip inside the Mega Drive is a 6voice Yamaha 4op OPN2 FM synthesizer - The YM2612. Its the same chip (or similar) to the ones used in the DX21 and the DX100. The DX100/21 can load patches from the YM2612 and vice versa. So almost anything you can do on a 4op DX synth you can do on the MegaDriv...

Re: Sega Megadrive FM anyone?

Nice tracks and very good sounds too. ;)
I didn't know that the chip inside the Mega drive had such huge basses, not to mention the wonderful cutting lead in the second track.

It can be seen a Promars: why would they show a Promars instead of a CS10?

Re: Synth examples, post them here.

I have recorded two Roland Sh-2 demos. Sh2 demo This one is a 6:30 minutes demo: it's just a bass sequence with some random changes. Sh2 Rio This is one is a short excercise, I made it just for fun. I was trying to reproduce a fragment of the 3 famous arpeggios from Duran Duran's "Rio", with and wit...
