Re: Roland S 760 Throw me some info

Roland came out with the DT-100 Digitizer Tablet to use with the S-50 for drawing or editing waveforms. It also works with other S series samplers including the S-760. But to use the DT-100 tablet with other Roland S*** -samplers you need to connect it with the RC-100 remote control or it won't wor...

Re: Roland S 760 Throw me some info

Redmond Cable Co. has made adaptor cables for using Roland samplers with Amiga and Atari monitors for many years and it looks like they may still be available: http://www.redmondcable.com/ Yes but are you sure it has the same connection socket at S760 end of the cable? It has to be DIN 9-pin male a...

Re: Roland S 760 Throw me some info

I have the S-770 with monitor. The editing is as easy as it gets! But be aware! You may need to build your own RGB-cable if it's not included since it make use of those old monitor models made for Amiga, Atari ST computers from the 80's (hard to find). You can use an ordinary composit cable but then...

Re: I really want an early 80's Roland poly. Suggestions?

One of the major flaws on JX10 - the midi sysex - has been resolved by a modification of the sysex code in the assigner board ROM made by Colin Fraser. Check it out:

Re: Dumbest thing you've ever heard someone say about synths

If you don't mind me asking, how did you form that perception or think that way (at that time)? Was it because you didn't like the music from those particular bands? I guess I've always been a little bit conservative when it comes to music taste. At that time I was more into music from the 60's lik...

Re: Dumbest thing you've ever heard someone say about synths

My own statement(s) in the early 80's when I first heard Kraftwerk and Depeche Modes 'Just can't get enough': "Synth music aren't real music. Using synthesizers are like cheatin' or playing a vinylplayer. It's stupid and talentless blip-blop noise. Musician-wannabes." Well, I have hopefully aged wis...

Re: Other 8-bit samplers?

This merits investigation. Does the sampling come with the computer or will this require a crazy epic quest for some obscure piece of hardware? To give you a short and clear answer, you can find an Amiga computer on ebay or on one of the sites that still sells them. Here's a link (or two): http://w...

Cassette portastudio degaussing?

Finally i got my hands on a Tascam portastudio 246! I have a question though about what to use when to demagnetize the tape head. Is it a good idea to use one of those cassette tape format demagnetiser or should i get one used for reel to reel recorders? I would like to know any pro's and con's for ...

Re: Other 8-bit samplers?

One thing that people forget is all samplers for the 80's home computers like Atari, and Amiga.
Most of them where 8-bit samplers like GVP DSS8+. You could graphically edit your samples and change the samplerate with push of a button. You can do stereo or mono samples with them.

Re: pure analogue studio, need advice

VCR 'HI-Hi' recording has nothing to do with the 'analogue tape' sound the OP is after. It uses FM, pretty good quality, but you aren't going to get the sound of analogue tape out of it. Also, try finding a VCR proper metering and level contril, most of them use Automatic Gain Control on the input,...
