i remember posting a while back about the one i found in the girl's locker room.

I love the thing :). and the arp is fun..for lack of a better understanding of it.

It's got a cv in no? for release or something?

it's like an instant pad machine :)

odd. mines just all black. it's an original. i have all my software still and the original box (i think it's holding some other instrument right now). I love the harspichord and the piano on it. the barking dogs, and the birds and machine guns are great... but the former really are where it shines.....

Actually, this board is a friendly place where people can go to get advice. Comments like this should be kept to yourself. Or better yet, stay off the boards... By the way, to find the used price of something like that, check closed auctions on ebay. Around $450 for the gr300 and $300-350 for the g...

Re: So I found a couple synths

One is actually a keyboard found at a thrift store and its brand name is Miracle. I've tried looking to up but turned up no information. It has only 8 preset sounds, and you can split 2, but the piano actually doesn't sound too bad. Another one I saw at my church in the basement, it's a general ele...

I usually leave the bpm up to my fingers... they used to tap at about 120... they they would tap at 140.... lately they've been tapping 175...it's weird.... because whenever i think about it ...i don't think i'm tapping any faster (tap temp on my es-1).. i usually just tap to sync up with the glitch...

I'd avoid the MC303 like the Black Death, its a stinker and you'll want shut of it again after a month.
i really disliked the mc303 i had for a couple days. It just seemed like easy tasks were complicated to perform. (i prefer my es-1 to it)

They have a lot of bizarre effects from both small and large effects makers.

They also tend to have a nice supply of used boss effects.

they also have their own brand, Audible Disease, which i fully support.
(Audible Disease makes a nice feedback pedal the rupture)

In my opinion a bass distortion is better than a plain guitar distortion for synths. i totally agree. As much as i drool on top of my hyperfuzz... my boss bass overdrive is probably my favorite pedal ...overall between basses, guitars, and synths...the synths get a nice clean (can be adjusted to fu...

I use a Audible Disease RP-1 (rupture)....works well for what i use it for. I'm still not entirely sure what the knob on it does. I tend to use it with an autowah, to give my sounds a little bit more of a edge. I ocasionally use it with my hyper fuzz, and that gives quite a nice bit of distortion. o...
