Re: Korg MS-20 Mini

It's already been mentioned on this thread, but maybe Korg will manufacture an MS-50 mini down the road to go along withe MS-20 mini. That seems like a good idea. You know that many MS-20 mini owners would shell out $300-400 more to add an accompanying MS-50. God, I would. I LOVED that thing. I wou...

Re: Again: Juno or Polysix?

A single oscillator is not limiting at all if the synth you buy has the ability to do a lot with that single oscillator. Both the CS-50 and the Micromoog come to mind. If the Juno has the sound you want, then you're golden. However, the Juno is not "fat." "Fat" is something that happens with voltag...

To your knowledge, did Harold Foltermeyer use either of those synths for his Beverly Hills Cop score?
He used the Moog 15 for the famous bass line.

Re: What the h**l is going on with Prodigy prices?

I'm very satisfied with the Prodigy. It is limited in an inspiring way, and it is really good at what is does. I haven't played the Micromoog, but I like the bass sounds Thomas Dolby made with it.

Re: NI FM7 or FM8

In addition to all written above, I think it is very cheap. FM8 + a great MIDI controller = A hands on FM synth with real-time hardware parameter tweaking + an infinite amount of presets for the price of a DX-7II (at least in swedish prices) A sexy thing is to be able to tweak the original presets o...

Re: Pro-One

I found the XS had a sort of Roland plasticity to it... the oscillators were very refined and modern sounding to me. Very few synths that I have played can match the kind of balls out girth, especially in the low/mid-range, of the Pro-1 oscillators. The XS can get pretty wild once you add the overd...

Re: The obsession for the Analog

.... I don't want to sound modern. sorry but this was a LOL moment... I am quite certain that (depending somewhat on form) no less than 90% (but probably more like 99%) of music listeners would say that music made with the gear you've listed sounded "modern".

It's exactly what I do as well, and like Stab, I have a pretty good grasp of what I can do with the instruments that have stuck around through the years.

Re: The obsession for the Analog

Most of it comes from wanting to create a vibe out of an old instrument, to make vintage sounds and to get the right feel for music that you only get by playing the original instrument! Most of it is surely placebo though. FM8 is a far better synth than many analogs I've tried. I just get the nostal...
