Re: Best workstation for live gigs?

I use a Roland Fantom X6 and a friend of mine that's in a Pink Floyd tribute band uses Roland Fantom FA06 & X6.

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.

Re: What Synth(s)/Gear Was Used or How Can I duplicate?

By the mid 90s, drum machines were losing favor to samplers. If you look at photos of studios from that era, you'll see a rack full of Akai, Emu or Roland samplers. At that time, for the most part, the sounds that came drum machines were all you got, but many drum machines has slots to accept PCM RO...
