Re: How can I produce this Minimoog special sound effect?

Yup, flanger. It sounds like an old EHX Electric Mistress

Re: Synth breakdown

To me, it sounds like Chill Wave until that awful trap beat and rap starts.

Re: Computer and app in Paula Abdul's "Cold Hearted" video?

That's a Commodore Amiga 500. No clue to the software.

Button layout on the keyboard he starts the sequence with (probably just for show, since I doubt was able to start sequence from a keyboard key press) is Roland S-50 sampler.

Re: noise identification

Not sure what synth they're using, but any synth with a resonant lowpass filter with LFO (down ramp wave form) & EG modulation will work. Jean-Michel Jarre used EMS Synthi for those types of effects, but those sell for $3k+ these days.

Re: Synth breakdown

I don't know what you mean by "vintage funk". That makes me think of Parliament/Funkadelic, Ohio Players, Headhunters, etc, which that track or sound is obviously not.

Re: Synth breakdown

Since you didn't include a time stamp, I'm assuming you're asking about the chords with the rhythmic filter sweep. It seems more complex than a standard ADSR, so it's either a synth with more than 4stage envelope or synth with ADSR along with a retriggerable LFO. The Matrix 6 fits the bill for the l...

Re: Synth breakdown

We could help you better if you posted a YouTube video along with time stamp(s) of the sound(s) you are looking for. Also, define "cheap". The JX-3P and Matrix 6 are relatively inexpensive synthesizers. Both of these a 6 voice polyphonic analog synthesizers. The JX-3P has that classic "fat" Roland s...

Re: Can you help me ID this synth?

Not a synthesizer. Most likely a sample of a Sarangi

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...
