I use my SPL rack units all the time with the Elektrons. The MD gets one or two seperate outs through the SPL Charisma and two mixer out busses go through the SPL Vitalizer MKII - very efficient to change the bass characteristics (soft to tight control + compressor for low frequencies only) + SPL D...

No mention of Monomachine sofar, one of my favourite signal processors because every signal (you can do two mono's processed differently with effect machine or just a thru machine or one stereo freely configurable). The best part is that you get the full synthesis parameters (envelopes, amps, filter...

I think I'm going to completely chicken out and go with the RE-20. :lol: I am a chicken already. Used to mess a quickly deteriorating RE 201 in the past and I'm happy to report the Boss is close to the real deal. Only purists in a live situation would be able to tell the difference. Once the sound ...

Congrats !

6 internal channels + 4 midi channels sequencing NL2x is sonic bliss and don't forget, the Mono likes the Nord on its inputs for processing ...... Swedish sex !

Boss RE-20 does a much better RE201 emulation than the DL4, but it's all it does. I particularly like Line6 own creations which are the Sweep echo and Lo-res delay. I own both pedals and the Echo pro which remains permanently in two of my mixer's aux busses. Haven't been able to check one out yet bu...

At the time of releasing 'Blemish' there were pictures on the Samadhisound site of David and Steve with NL3 keyboard & rack. I observed the same red presence (David playing a NL3 keyboard, but only FM bells type of things during performances, most of the sounds were audio streaming from laptop) duri...

I use CR78 samples in my MD-UW and it's like having the real thing again but without the cheesy rhythms and i can make new sounds from the samples. If i could own one again i would, but it's far too expensive to maintain for a 30 year old machine. But it stands up in it's own right amongst the TR s...

Wally Badarou's 'Echoes', a wonderful display of 'how can synths sound so organic'.

Steve Winwood's 'Night Train' intro.

Anything from New Musik and Japan.

Neucleus 'Automan Dub' from start to finish actually.

i use the returns only in mono Well, that's the problem. AFAIK these units have 4 stereo returns - you should route the outs of your efx processor to various returns and play with their gain levels / pan controls (if available). Experimenting is key here, mute dry signals, pan dry signal slightly l...
