Re: Jomox xbase 09 issue.

Tank here as well. Yes you can coax c**p sounds out of it as well as brilliant sounds, but the bottom line is that it is very solid (every jack, port, knob, and button perfect after 2+ years) and in my opinion the class of tight-design feature-laden minimal analog + sample based drum machines. All o...

Re: Jomox xbase 09 issue.

Up goes down

Down goes up
That's a quirk, and switchable in the interface. Build quality on my SE is perfect, and OS is rock solid (2.09). Upgrade if you don't have that version - I am completely satisfied with the experience and find no faults or bugs.

Re: OMNICHORD OM27 rubber pick

If your Omnichord doesn't work just by using your fingers on the touchplate, then I'm afraid it doesn't work at all. You don't need any pick to play it...

Re: The Oakley Sound Systems TM3030 TB clone Review

This is a great read. I have Tony's prototype TM3030 that he put together himself (uses a BA662 amp) and it sounds very close to what you've got. The extended range for the resonance and cutoff are very useful to me and go just beyond what a "normal" 303's expected behavior should be. I never get ti...

I have the 120X and love it. It finds (roughly) the pitch of whatever's feeding it and then synthesizes information in the 20-70Hz range. So if you need some more heft in the low low end, it'll work. This one has unbalanced -10 RCA ins and outs. I have a Henry Matchbox HD line level matcher to inter...

Ben - awesome. This movie has the best sound design of any I've seen in years. The ship's autopilot "AUTO" is created using MacinTalk voice synthesis software. The other "voices" were created using effects like vocoding, ring modulation, formant shifters, etc. just like the old days (THX1138, Star W...

Bit Crushing / Fs Decimating Hardware FX Roundup (a cut&pasty): I have three of these types. Frostwave Alienator, Alesis Bitrman , and Bugbrand BugCrusher '08 . Frostwave I think sounds the best of the bunch, and includes a nice resonant LPF to boot. It does both bit crushing and sample rate freque...

It does both bit crushing and sample rate frequency reduction at the same time. Filter first, crusher first, filter...

I have one and love the heck out of it. Here's me rocking it on my Multimoog: http://share.ovi.com/media/mok.public/mok.10191 I will try soon to get more of a dry/effect demo thing happening so you can get a better idea of what it's doing. Suffice it to say whatever you're using it on in your mix yo...

you've answered your own question fair, but only part of the question. I would think that I did something wrong if my thread got moved. I would think that I offended someone if my thread was locked without an explanation. I guess now I'm not addressing why the rules exist but how the rules are enfo...

wow. I didn't post any other topic but this one, so... I also don't understand the vitriol this causes. Is it way less work to lock a thread than to move it? I get that it supposedly happens way too often and it's a pain to police that, but why the ire? It seems to me that it is not hard to determin...

who locks topics and why?

I understand spam and threads getting out of hand, but why is that Jupiter-8 VCO drift topic in General forum locked? It seems like the problem is far from solved and I (among others probably) would like to add in and also see if the problem can be seen through to a solution. To be more on topic for...

how does that mod sound? I've been thinking about trying it on my micro.. does it noticebly change the sound? I don't really have a point of reference on that - I only have experience with what it sounds like with the modification. If it helps, you can hear a couple of examples of what the synth (M...

thanks for the nods on those demos... between the Multi and my Jupiter-8 I have now (for the briefest time probably) come to a point where I only have GAS for new and neato things, but my vintage GAS is sated. Yes, it is true that there are things about both of those synths that become less reliable...

one thing to note: I plugged my multi into an oscilloscope and found that the waveforms are really perfect. Saw looks like saw, square looks like square, pulse width does exactly what it should, and the hybrid saw/pulse is exactly that. Maybe other synths people have used are less accurate in wavefo...
