Re: Synthesizers with awesome arpeggiators

I think I cut and pasted that entire SOS thread into a word document somewhere - must look for it. I did that because (Bill Marshall?) the creator of the Zyklus got chatting to Stephen Kay over that thread where they were considering how what you'd get if you passed Zyklus realtime sequences into t...

Buying upgrade Eproms - is this seller OK?

I wonder if anyone has bought Eproms from this ebay seller? I've bought a number of stitches, keys, fader caps form them and find them very reliable over all, but am aware that often buying upgrade Eproms can lead to more trouble that it's worth. This seller has dozens of them, and at least a dozen ...

Re: Synthesizers with awesome arpeggiators

That's funny, I thought we had discussed it before! Episodic memory- totally unreliable :lol: They usually go for around €300. I believe there was some connection between the developer of the Cyclone and the Zyklus. The guy told the whole story on the Sound on Sound forum many years ago, but that g...

Re: Synthesizers with awesome arpeggiators

Brilliant!

Lots of interesting ideas arising - inadvertently !

Never even heard of the Oberheim Cyclone before - but when Googled it - there's one on sale right now on the the Spheremusic auction to end next Saturday!

Excellent thread!

Re: Synthesizers with awesome arpeggiators

Hmm, reading your description again, I think the Cyclone can do this. I might actually sit down with the manual again. That thing is a bear to program, worse than an Ensoniq Mirage. Currently my box is a Drummer, not a Cyclone. Give me some time :lol: If you mean the Bass-Bot TT-303 - I downloaded ...

Re: Looking for Casiotone CT202 Manual

This was the closest I found, but it seems all his manuals are offline (probably when Dropbox changed all their links) - might be worth telling him and he can fix it... https://generror.wordpress.com/2010/07/04/casio-keyboard-manuals/ No 202, but 102, and 201 are there... Thanks a million for looki...

Re: Looking for Casiotone CT202 Manual

Not a single Casio 202 manual to be found on the Web. It's almost worth it - to have found a search term that provides no web links whatsoever! :-). I've just found the 'end' of the Web!

Re: Synthesizers with awesome arpeggiators

That sounds really cool. I know you like this aspect of things - it's the quirky aspect to it that it's not supposed to do that make it really good. It's a CASIO - but I kid you not - put through an excellent reverb and it can sound like a PPG. No exaggerating!. It was just a clever little instrume...

Re: Synthesizers with awesome arpeggiators

Casiotone 1000P - an amazing arpeggiator / sequencer and to my knowledge, utterly unique to this day. You type in digits between 0 and 9 - up to 256 steps. Then, whatever pattern you hold down on the keyboard, it plays those notes back in the 'digit entered' order. The powerful aspect to it - it alw...

Re: Yo! Whats up with Behringer Synths not being featured on the site????

Maybe I'm biased because I own the Model D , Neutron , K-2 , Pro-1 , Wasp , MS-1, Odyssey , Crave and TD-3 but Behringer's synths are DOPE and I don't understand why this site don't have a Behringer section. What's up with that? What are you talking about - you'll find they've ALL been discussed ov...

Looking for Casiotone CT202 Manual

I wonder if anyone has a Casiotone CT-202 Instructional Manual you could scan / photocopy for me? I'd pay fot the service. Bought one of those little beauty recently - it really is a lovely keyboard (my first ever keyboard as a Casiotone 1000P which I still have and still love too), so have a soft s...

Korg Legacy M1 containing Korg Symphony Module programs?

Hi On this web site a person by the name of M. Dodd wrote a review of the Korg Symphony Module (see link below). In the review the reviewer claims that the programs of the Symphony Module are contained in Korg Legacy's M1 emulation. However the Legacy M1 documentation does not indicate this - and I ...

Re: Here are disk images for Emulator 1, Fairlight and Emax

Excuse my ignorance - but what are you offering to download?

and are they usable to non owners of those instruments (specifically are they the original sample libraries for those instruments :-) ) ?
