Re: Tell me why I don't need the Alesis Ion...

Sir Ruff, did you get it? I sold my Ion last year and I definitely miss its sound. It was great for smooth classic synth sounds, but it absolutely excels at crazy digital choas, as well. I was able to create some of my favorite crashing, hissing and screaming sounds from that synth without any exter...

Re: One is not enough!

I have a Korg EA-1 and an EA-1 MkII. I use them for layering four simple melodies, sort of Mega Man-style. Plus, only one has the Ring Mod, and the other has Cross Mod, so they can sound pretty different when I want them to.

Re: Novation Bass Station Nightmare

dang, that sucks! wish i had some advice, but i'm not extremely technically-minded (see my own posts in "Help!"). it certainly sounds like the problem is stemming from those pots. when you say the guy "stuck in some third party controllers", do you mean that he replaced the pots entirely, directly o...

Re: any experts here on stitching together power supplies?

awesome info there, thanks Graham! the drilling thing is intriguing; i never thought of that. however, i'm not excited about the prospect of possibly ruining several plugs on my way to a winner, so i might just have to bite the bullet and replace the jack in the SE-50. that, on the surface sounds li...

any experts here on stitching together power supplies?

i just bought a Boss SE-50 for twenty bucks. the catch? no power supply. presumably it works, but Boss was extra adorable the day they designed this thing: it has a barrel-type jack on the back, but the center of the thing is enormous, and no amount of hunting around the house could find a suitable ...

Re: New Roland Juno-Di

I doubt this, and only for one main reason, that being competition. If Roland had some highly effective spy mission going on (which would require it's own finances no doubt), and could rest assured that their products would be able to hold down competition in the market for a considerable amount of...

Re: New Roland Juno-Di

As has been noted, each version of the Fantom has fallen essentially into that Access similar mode, where each version had features that the previous did not. i don't have too many problems with the big three in general, but when it comes to Roland and their Fantoms, -- and this is pure speculation...

Re: DSI MoPho

Really, it is cheap enough that everyone, who likes synths with built in sequencers... from what i've read of your posts, and your thoughts on sequencers, i generally tend to agree with you. considering that, and all the past synths/boxes you've used with in-built sequencers, how does this one stac...

silly such-and-suches. my DX200's filter opens and closes in their general direction.

Re: favorite instrument combinations

my Revolution playing identical patterns with my DX200 is a wonderful combo. adds some welcome space and (depending on what i'm playing) epic-ness to a standard 303-style pattern.

i put my face right up on my TV and sucked out the pin from my Wii's a/v cable, after it came loose and broke off inside. not my finest hour, but it did the job.

anyone own a Rolls/RFX MidiBuddy? one teensy, tiny question!

just picked one of these up at a yard sale for two bucks the other day. thought it'd be a useful addition to my studio. it did not include the power adapter, and i'd prefer to make sure of the adapter's polarity before i start randomly plugging stuff in. i know the voltage/amperage, but as usual, th...
