Re: great SH-101-driven tracks

Skanfrom's albums sound like they're almost entirely sh 101, with occasional tr 606. Great stuff.

Re: TR-707 vs TR-626

To echo what Z said, as a standalone drum machine the tr-707 has better features and specs, but as a tr-style midi controller the 626 is more useful. The accent is more versatile and can give drum patterns more expression, and it can send midi in pattern, step-record or tap-record mode, so you can b...

Re: MC-202 question

This was kinda answered, but just to clarify, the 202 can't loop it's two channels independently from one another. They can be programmed to be different lengths, sure. But if one channel's sequence is shorter than the other and you set the 202 to play in a loop ("cycle" mode), the shorter sequence ...

Re: noise problems on my juno60

I can't add any information but I wanted to chime in and say that i experience the exact same symptoms with my Juno 6, a faint ringing sound that is always present. using different cables/mixers/amps has no effect, it's always there, at headphone output as well. it's quiet enough that i often don't ...

Re: Arp Axxe questions

I didn't know what those were for either, so I googled it: "ARP Axxe has a trigger circuit separate from the gate circuit to provide multiple note envelope triggering."

Re: Arp Axxe questions

The Axxe has a good low-end, sounds deep and warm, but the Sh-101 is a bit tighter sounding, in terms of the envelopes. For bass sequences and such, I would go with the 101, but they're both good. Also the 101 has it's own sequencer so that's a big plus. The Axxe responds to normal 1v/octave cv like...

Re: Amplifying synths for recording and/or reamping

I'm doing something similar to what I think Piron is describing, playing a synth sound through your studio monitor speaker and putting a mic on that. it seems to round off the harsh edges of the sound, and you can adjust the mic position to get different frequency response. simply passing the sound ...

I also record to 8 track reel to reel. Usually start with a drum submix to two tracks and bassline to another track, then overdub parts individually. Usually EQ/compress/Effect synths on front-end and print it all on tape, then final mixdown is just EQ and levels. I like the results. haven't combine...

I was in a Goblin cover band for a short time. We had two keyboard players to cover all the synth parts! The Tenebre theme was my favorite song to play.

I read a quote from Simonetti (maybe from this forum) that they used Minimoog, TR-808, Drumtraks, Jupiter 8 and Mellotron on Tenebre.

I'd like to throw in: The Beach Boys - Friends Really smooth, dry sound, wonderful clarity, so warm and intimate. also great stereo mix (the first record they designed for stereo) Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms maybe this is more from a production standpoint. lots of very dated 80's sounds, but it'...

Love this drum machine. the interface, which is full of multi-function buttons and makes constant use of the 'shift' key, takes a little getting used to. You can assign each of the thirty sounds a specific MIDI note number and MIDI channel, so it makes real a handy drum sequencer hooked up to a samp...

Dropped my SU10 in a river. Later used the "I'm dying" sound it made as the basis for a track. Repeatedly pounded my Yamaha PSR-something keyboard with my fists when it started malfunctioning, and suddenly the tone got kinda warped sounding and the keyboard was auto-arpeggiating. Quickly tape record...

Replies: 10

mks50 receives CCs, and overall has a better MIDI spec than the alpha junos, so I would go that route if you want the most control over sequencing. programming from the front panel is done with up/down parameter keys, not much fun. I've heard people who use the alpha dial on the juno don't mind it s...

Yeah, it worked, and was totally as easy as I expected it to be. I am running 3.02 so I guess that's why. the 32 manual only covers the earlier OS, it doesn't mention this function at all.

thanks for the quick responses :D
