Polyphony Infographics! Exciting!

Hi, everyone. Long time, no see! I thought I'd drop by and harass you with some infographics on polyphony and paraphony... my favorite subjects. I hope you're all doing well. https://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g204/PotatoSaladPocket/paraphonic%20meme3.jpg http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g204/Potat...

The Minimoog's sawtooth isn't perfect!

Re: Have synthesizers Improved in 35 years?

:::pinches bridge of nose::: Synthesizers are for the authorship of sound. With the right amount of sine wave oscillators, envelopes, and amps, you can create any sound. Yes, we've created boatloads of interesting types of sound-generation devices. We've added features. We've improved stability. But...

Re: Synths and You (the collection of opinions)

1) The synth that made you want to play music: I was writing music before I had seen or played a synth, but the one that really inspired me was a picture of the ARP 2600. 2) Your first synth: Roland Juno-106. 3) The synth that has surprised you most: Actually, the Minimoog. For years, I rolled my ey...

Re: Korg Monologue

I have a Monologue right now, and I'm about to release videos about it.

It's tiny, light, and simple.

But it has some features that I feel that are absolutely stellar... it may have my favorite LFO of any analog synthesizer I've ever played.

Re: Your lifelong equipment list

Ah, now I understand why you always say things like this, you're equating DSI and new Moog synths with "new analogue". If you're looking for the sound of vintage analogue that you describe then you should be looking at the HUGE amount of stuff that's available from the new modular companies. The so...

Re: Your lifelong equipment list

Damnnit man. What do you mean? If you listen to recordings of Moog modulars, ARPS, and other instruments from 1971 or so, there is a character that they possess. This character comes about from a number of design and component choices, a lot of electronic limitations, and the ears of the engineers ...

Re: Your lifelong equipment list

I saw some ASR-10 tutorial videos and I'm shocked by how little I actually did with the machine when it was my main (and only) tool. I...sampled....took chunks of audio, warped them, edited them...mangled and massaged and made some great stuffs. I see people doing all sorts of weird sound design st...

Re: Your lifelong equipment list

I wanted to ask Marc what the h**l made him buy an ASR-10? And what did you do with it? You was sampling?????????? You've fallen prey to your own perception, sir! :D In 1991, I bought a brand new EPS-16+ and proceeded to write AND record on it and with it for the next 9 years or so. In about 1998, ...

I think this is it, but it was probably more: Nice list...now how about the list of machines you've PLAYED in the last thirty years (or just the ones you've made vids for in the last five years)? :mrgreen: You know, I don't think that would add a huge amount to the list, really. There isn't much I'...
