Re: Have mini moog - on to sequensers - ?

What I would like to do is be able to build a repeating motif where I can change the note as I layer minimoog improv on top of it It sounds like the ideal scenario would include a sequencer/arpeggio generator Any suggestions on that or other options for my setup? Looking for suggestions on things t...

Re: Have mini moog - o to sequensers - ?

Congratulations on your purchase, the MiniiMoog is a fine instrument. The reissue model has MIDI unlike the original synth and can be sequenced via MIDI with a stand-along hardware sequencer or with a software sequencer on your computer or tablet along with a MIDI interface. The MiniMoog is a monoph...

Re: Ok synth heads, name that synth from Flatliners

The choir sounds like Korg M1.

I wouldn't be surprised is a Fairlight CMI was used. But being 1990, samplers were getting more affordable and more prominent. The Akai S1000 came out about a year prior and pretty much set the standard for samplers in the 90s.

Re: Synthesizers - Where to start

If you are new to synths, I wouldn't jump into the deep end with a powerful synth like the Prophet X. Hang out in the shallow end with a Behringer DeepMind12 until you've mastered the basics of analog synthesis. The DM-12 is loosely modeled after the Roland Juno 106 which has an intuitive workflow a...

Re: Synthesizers that Neon Trees uses

In this live video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxBN5sYJbTA There's a Roland Alpha Juno 2 on the top tier and a Korg MicroKorg on the lower tier. The MicroKog has an arpeggiator and the Juno 2 does not, so you're most likely hearing the MK. Since you mentioned them using same or similar sounds a...

Re: Which is historically more important: The TR-808 or the Linn LM1?

The LM-1 was probably more important in the beginning since it started the shift from unnatural, electronic "home organ" sounding drums to realistic samples of real drums. But at $5k, not many could afford it. Even the $3k LinnDrum and Oberheim DMX was only affordable to professionals. The $1k TR-80...

Yes, you can use an external sequencer (hardware or software) to sequence the MoDX.

Re: Need help creating this sound (I'm Free)

The bass sounds like an electric bass ran through a phase shifter with a slow LFO rate. Just Goggle'd it and the Wiki says bassist is Nathan East, so my bet is it's not a synth.

Lead sounds like one or two oscillators with saw waves with a mostly closed filter (25-50%).

Re: Memorymoog Prices

According to SOLD listings on eBay and Reverb, working MemoryMoogs are selling between $5000 - $8000 USD.

It does not look like the Moog One has affected the sales price of MemMoogs.

Re: What is up with Oberheim

Musician's Friend currently has both OB-6 keyboard and module in stock. I didn't do an extensive search, but did not find anyone selling the Tom Oberheim SEM. Tom's website only mentions the OB-6 synths and nothing about his SEM synths. I would assume he is no longer making them. If you get the chan...

At 0:27, I hear a "super saw" synth stab and an obnoxious vocal sample.

I skipped around in the video you posted and did not hear an alarm sound. Please tell us the time stamp (minute:seconds) that this sound occurs.
