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...

Re: does this sound have a name?

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

Re: does this sound have a name?

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...

Re: Vocal/choir patch

It's most likely a sampler. Probably an Akai or Roland S series (both used S in their model numbers of samplers).

There was a disk from the Roland S-50/550 sound library call Ooze and Oz with choir sounds like that and I could load it into my W-30 which reads S-50/550 sounds.

Re: Help

Any amplified speaker system will work. Most people use powered monitor speakers in their studios. The KRK Rokit 5 monitors are pretty popular since they are typically around $300 for a pair. When I was starting out in the 80s, I used a "boom box" with RCA inputs and later a HiFi system until I'd bu...

Re: 80s synth bass

any suggestions where to go if I wanted to have something similar in ableton or logic? Sorry, I am unfamiliar with software as I only use hardware. As I suggested, an analog or virtual analog synth with 24db/oct. lowpass filter. 2 saw waves, one set at 16', the other at 32'. Filter cutoff set about...

Re: 80s synth bass

That song came out in 2006, not the 80s. The synth bass could be any analog or virtual analog synth with a 24db/oct filter.

Re: So what came from NAMM 2019?

Did you not see all the inexpensive Behringer clones? RD-808, Pro-1, Odyssey, MS-101, VC340 vocoder and a $200 analog mono desktop with sequencer called the Crave which can be polychained. Arturia introduced the MicroFreak: 1-4 voice poly using digital oscillators, analog filter, touch plate "keyboa...
