Re: Newbie looking at buying E-mu sampler needs help????

Check out http://www.emusonaicd.co.uk And if you must, then get an emu E4xt ultra as others suggested but I can tell you right now that if you have a mac with pcie slots, then the only way to get samples in and out the sampler is by means of the ridiculously expensive scsi card reader to be connecte...

Good EU Music Store to Get an Andromeda

I'd like to get a Andromeda now that there seem to be a new batch floating. So, I'm looking for a reliable store within the EU with good customer service and willing to ship goods outside of its own country if needed. I looked at thomann and digital village, which I have dealt with in the past and t...

Re: New Andromedas are here

You know, the thing I' ve always liked about the A6 is what Bitexion said, a few minds going nuts with the pure intent of making something outstanding.

I like my nord G2X but I just can't get the warmth I need.

Re: New Andromedas are here

Man, I might pull the trigger this time. I miss not having an analog polysynth and the Andy could be the ticket. I don't like the tone of the prophet--be it 08 or 5--and the polyevolver is just 4 voices. Dave Smith is a nice guy but his synths don't float my boat. He's clever with marketing and such...

The G2 (mine's a G2X) is actually the centerpiece for creating sounds. I wish it were at least 6-part multitimbral but huppo is right in a sense. If you are the tweakhead type than the G2 is perfect but if you are more of a twist-knobs-and-move-on maybe the G2 is not your cup of tea. I wouldn't get ...

JS, I would opt for the G2 keyboard as you can save all the knob assignments with the patch and then tweak away. But if budget doesn't allow it, the G2 engine w/ expansion is still a fine choice. The amazing thing about the G2 is that you can use it as a synth or as an FX box if you want. So, that's...

maindeglorie - congrats on getting the XTk. All those knobs just make it more fun to tweak sounds. I'll never sold my XT. The appealing side of the Stromberg is the interface, extra outs, and the optional analog filter bank. We'll see if it will all come to life. I guess it would still be possible t...

The MED, MEK, PER, PEK all share the same architecture so it is more a matter of re-packaging which may take some time to do but it's not like making a product from scratch. As for the linndrum, check the Dave Smith's interview on sonicstate.com, he's saying it'll be ready by the end of this year. J...

they cant even get thier collective s**t together on Blofeld, so if I were U I wouldnt hold my breath here. I don't understand that statement you made. No other company has been able to release so much synth power in such a package for that price so far. The Blofeld has some OS quirks but if you ch...

Nah, it was pretty funny.

Much better than the clavia site. That's actually the lame one. Watch out, Waldorf is back. 8)

I can't wait to see both the Solaris and the Stromberg come to light. Both monster synths on paper but the final judge will be personal taste. It seems a Stromberg with the analog-filter option will be roughly as exspensive as the Solaris, so comparing the two is gonna be the acid test as for 'warmt...

The Synthex uses CEM ICs for the VCF and I believe a 6502 microprocessor.

Maybe a used TC Fireworx? It usually goes for about $500-600
