Re: Grant for equipment

What flexibility and expandability do you mean? A Mac Pro is worth it if you're planning on using a UAD card or a PCI express soundcard but if you're using a 003 then you're much better off with an imac. The top spec ones these days are really powerful, even my 18 month old one is powerful enough t...

Re: Grant for equipment

i've had a G5 tower on craigslist asking $600 & can't find a taker. I'd rather avoid the old Power PC architecture since I don't believe everything is continuing to support it. Besides I am only permitted to use the money for items sold through appropriate retailers and I doubt many will stock refu...

Re: Grant for equipment

I was under the impression the ZED series was more for recording use. You're probably thinking of the Zed R16 , which has firewire and is indeed suited to recording. The Zed 24 only offers stereo recording via USB and sports 24 channels, 16 of which have microphone pre-amps. The 16:2 Mix Wizard doe...

Re: Grant for equipment

are you using the PA for a live performance scenario? if so, cut down on the price of that, take it back & don't risk windows 7... it'll be a mistake. Yeah, I intend to use the PA for live performances - although I may use the tops for band rehearsals as vocal monitors as well. Just to give you mor...

Re: Grant for equipment

Congrats! Is this grant for personal use, or some sort of non profity thing? Thanks! It's for both non-profit and profit, least that's the plan. I'm hoping to be working alongside schools and if that becomes a reality then I won't be charging. With any luck I'll be using it for a voluntary project ...

Grant for equipment

A couple of months ago I applied for a grant for some equipment and much to my surprise have been successful. Since then I've put together of a list of the stuff I intend to use the money for. It will be used primarily for four things: A new computer Near-field monitors PA system and live gear Bass ...

Re: Minimoog vs Alesis ION - new member :)

That must have been what irked me about the ION when I had it. Even with the filter fully open it still doesn't have the high-end sizzle that the Mini has in spades.

Re: The Alesis Andromeda is DEAD

Why blame Numark? It just seems that shortly after Numark acquired Alesis they stopped both developing new synths and supporting their current releases. In fact now that they the own Akai too they've just rehashed the Micron/ION engine for the Miniak. With the Micron still in production would a rac...

I'm pretty sure the LP's LFO is digitally-generated. It is then brought into the analogue domain so it can interact with the signal path. This is probably one of the reasons the range is rather generous.

Re: Can you tell what synth this is?

I'll go with the JX-8P as well, but it'll probably be software. :lol:

Sounds great whatever it is.

Re: V Synth Question

The results do vary a lot in my experience and aren't always predictable. I'd generally just try a few to see which one sounds best in any given situation.

Not much help I know, but that's how it is for me.

Re: Roland SH01

He waited for the Gaia and is *paying* the difference? Ouch. Could he not get an appraisal showing the higher value of the 101? The difference is only about £60 so it's not a lot really. Given the choice I'd also pony up the extra for a Gaia since I think it's the better synth, although truth be to...

Re: Roland SH01

His grey SH-101 that he had bought from a local music store in back in the '80s. It's a real shame but as far as I know it went off to the scrap heap. We tried our best to save it, but the insurance company wasn't having any of that. It was either a new synth or nothing. :| Originally it was going t...
