Re: Winter NAMM 2010

I swear, outside of atomizer, just about every single new feature to the TI has essentially been Access trying to turn the darn thing into a generic V. Emphasis on "generic", because continually the features tend to not go as indepth as Roland work did.
So yep.....looks like they've done it again.

Re: what is the best synthesizer from the 2000's (2000-2010) ?

The modern day digital ubber modulars (i.e. Kyma) are truly in a league all their own at this point. So leaving such moder modular systems out of the picture. Roland V-Synth GT would get my vote. I'd have to place the Alesis Andromeda in honorable mention however, and though to a lesser degree, woul...

Re: inverted vcf keyboard tracking?

The FR-777 in a way is capable of this. When in CV "Warp" modulation is set, higher notes cause a lower filter cutoff, however some modulation from the OSC B is also introduced. Further, this feature only corresponds to what notes are being triggered by the sequencer (doesn't have an effect when man...

Re: Is Roland V Synth same as SH-201?

Yeah you need to use the HQ waveforms for high frequency stuff, the normal ones for basses. It kind of suggests that with the normal ones having sub-oscs but the HQ ones not. I wouldn't necessarily say that suggestion is accurate at all. First, I hesitate to say that all or even most basses require...

Re: Is Roland V Synth same as SH-201?

One thing to keep in mind is amongst the additional VA osc on the V (and lacking from the 201) are the "HQ" osc.
Essentially non-aliasing waveforms (granted they can still be pushed into such via FM, but that's to be expected).

Re: Is Roland V Synth same as SH-201?

The SH-201 is the same engine, but slimmed down significantly (and this is with all things keeping to a VA form). A TON of envelopes and LFOs are lost on the 201 as well as dual filter (never mind quad filter setups) capability. A good amount of waveforms are lost (again, this is in keeping to thing...

Re: A test of the depth Arturia Origin

Taking a look at this, I couldn't help but notice that an incorrect statement is made fairly early on. That being that of the "big 3" only 1 (Korg) continued on dealing with anything VA. Roland also continued, all be it they arguably simply fused it with other things. Hence, if wanted to use any of ...

Re: Yamaha are not really making any synths anymore

The EX5 was post SY99, and really combined a variety of methods.
First synth I know of that really combined VA and Sample based engines in a singular architecture as well. (all be it in limited form)

Re: How have Arturia Origin sales been?

Furthering Stab Frenzy's point about RA Moog Minis versus Moog Music minis, I'd like to point out that no one thinks a Nord Lead, Nord Lead 2, or Nord Lead 3 sound alike. I assume- for the most part- that the grit and dirt of the original compared to its followers is all made up bullshit, but for s...

Re: Bass

Na the results were actually interesting to tell you the truth. Not when there's no audio. Wavefiles say more than words ;). http://www.rhythmsourcemusic.com/artist/23/23BassDemo.mp3 Squeezed out a quick recording. Did two bits. I already noted how the basic routing scheme was, and there's nothing ...

Re: Bass

Na the results were actually interesting to tell you the truth. Why post on here? Can't say it's a programming method I've heard used much, and it yielded some interesting results. The relevant portion of the post was a different approach in method with a loose outline of what was done so that other...
