Re: Chemical Brothers "We Are The Night" intro sound

thanks for your reply futureworlder. i'm going to visit a friend who owns a macbeth m5n this weekend. it has quite possibly the widest oscillators that i'm aware of (wider than a 2600) and spring reverb. he also runs it through a tube orange amp. i'll bring some microphones and see what i can come u...

Metasonix f**k f**k

With a name like that, I can't wait to find out what this thing is. There's speculation that it is some kind of mixer or amp head, similar to the Muff Wiggler.

don't mind at all. i think the pro-one is a fair comparison. same for the eml 101 and many other vintage semi-mods. the m5, vostok and s1 are kind of out of it's league (in my opinion) but if money's not an issue they are all extremely flexible and sound great. the red square is probably the only no...

wow, very awesome advice from all. thank you. i read what shagghie had to say about the xs/s1 mkii and couldn't believe it. for me, i see the macbeth and s1 as "maybe if i were a filthy rich pop star would i own one" synths. in fact that's what shifted my interest. i knew the demos were bad a*s, but...

Korg MS-20 Vs. Future Retro XS

I don't visit the forums as often as I'd like, but I haven't seen much of a debate between these two. So forgive me if it has already been thoroughly discussed elsewhere. I have always wanted a MS-20. I played a friend's once and have been hooked ever since. I would probably sell all my other synths...

I was going to start a new thread but thought it fits this one. I do most of my sequencing on a Roland MC-4 or trig outs from various X0X boxes. I love the MC-4 and all, but it gets very tedious. I'm looking for something a bit more immediate. I really like the Oberkorn Mk3 but read that it needs so...
