Re: Is a Yamaha Tyros a synthesizer?

Analog Synthesizer. Digital Synthesizer. Synthesized Sound Player. Some keyboards allow to play synthesized sounds while not being synthesizers.

Re: Roland JX3P and PWM

Weird statement by "Automatic Gainsay", if it is the real Marc Doty, sure he worked at Moog at the time, but still.

Re: Just received a Korg Sigma for free!!

Congratulations. Although it does have limitations the Sigma can still produce some awesome sounds, especially when using the 'Ring Mod'. I wouldn't part with mine ever.

Re: Waldorf Quantum - new 8 voice hybrid poly

Re: Analogue Additive Synthesizer

I have a poly800 and it is basically an organ with envelopes and a filter. Take those away and it is no different than the Conn organ in the living room.
