Re: Anyone listen to Testpattern (funky Japanese 80s synths)

Good to know! I could definitely imagine some Juno or another Roland on there for some of those bright open-filter sounds. I'm a big Hosono fan, but reading your post I realized I'd never checked out much of what he was into synth-wise. Will have to do some more reading on that. Also, if Hosono and ...

Anyone listen to Testpattern (funky Japanese 80s synths)?

Just came across some tracks by these guys. Very full and layered synths with crisp production. from '83: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDUXXZ05OyU and '82: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4R3-HAV3fY Haven't looked into it much, but I wonder what they were using back then. Especially that first t...

Re: Any idea how to create this synth sound from a FourTet s

Thanks for the clarification! Experimenting and getting some fun sounds, though still not quite what I'm hearing.

If anyone thinks they can get an approximation of that sound, I'd love to hear it. If not, no worries. I just got to get back to practicing and experimenting more.

Re: Any idea how to create this synth sound from a FourTet s

Thanks for the replies. Yeah, I know Four Tet uses a lot of samples. But even on his recent Morning / Evening release, it's a combination of samples and software synths. I know he's also used hardware synths on other albums, though I forget which ones. Also, I'm not worried about how he made this pa...

Thanks, madtheory. Would love to hear what you come up with for that kind of sound.

Re: Any idea how to create this synth sound from a FourTet s

Thanks for the replies! Much appreciated. Haha, I didn't know flute drops were a thing either. Definitely a lot of flute and wind-like synths out there, but this one sounds different to me. Again, hard for me to put my finger on it, but the wind instrument synth settings haven't gotten me to the sou...

Any idea how to create this synth sound from a FourTet song?

Hi everyone, Just rediscovered this site and am thoroughly enjoying it. I've been trying to improve my synth programming skills these days (just started going through one of the great instructional stickies on here), both with software and hardware, and one way I'm doing it is by trying to imitate s...

Re: Trying to fix my Juno60, please help

Unfortunately I don't know much about electronics. I don't even know what all those things are that you listed. I guess I'll have to find someone who knows more who can take a look at it. Thanks for the ideas, I really appreciate it.

Trying to fix my Juno60, please help

Hi, I had another thread about this but it was old and it seemed like no one was going to respond to it anymore so I'm making a new one after doing some testing with my synth. Basically, my Juno 60 has not been making some annoying sounds that have prevented me from using it for recording for a whil...

Re: noise problems on my juno60

Thanks for the idea, I think a noise gate would work for some things like you said. But I want to be able to record quiet stuff and stuff with slow decays. OK, I just tested every switch on it. I'm listening with headphones but I know the same stuff happens through different amps. Here's what I foun...

Re: noise problems on my juno60

Hmm, if it doesn't annoy you I'm guessing something different is happening with yours. I think this would be annoying to anyone trying to record with it. It's definitely not just the natural noisiness of the juno. I'm not daisy chaining powerstrips or anything like that. I've tried the L, M, and H s...

Re: noise problems on my juno60

Hi, thanks for the ideas. So, I really want to be able to record with this thing. Unfortunately, I'm pretty new to electronics stuff and I'm not sure what to try next. It sounds like some of you guys have ideas about what it could be. What should I do to fix it? I could still post a sound file of th...
