Re: Andromeda A6 or Access Virus TI2????

Having both the Andromeda and the Prophet, I suggest you the Prophet08. The Andy is a beast on lush pads but I find the P08 having far more "pressure" with basses and leads. The Andy has real VCO with a "lot of" beating so getting a strong analog sounds it's a bit more complex because you must avoid...

Re: KORG MS-10 US TO EUROPEAN POWER?

I think that a standard 230v-110v drop down converter will do the job. Your MS10 accept 50/60hz so this is not a problem... when you convert 220->110 with a converter with MORE than 6w... that's all. connect the ms10 power plug to your converter... plug the converter to your socket wall. If you want...

Re: Prophet 08 vs Prophet 08PE.

It's easy. Grab the P08.. .play with it. If you don't find any issue with the encoders you're done. If not buy the POT upgrade, it's easy to install and it's not so expensive. I have a MEK with encoders... it drives me mad. Value skip and jump. Used deoxit on the encoders and it worked for 1 month. ...

Re: Mono Evolver KB vs Prophet 08

Thanks for your suggestions... I decided to KEEP my MEK... buy the P08 from my friend (because it's a really a good price) and next year I'll start looking for a 2nd hand polyevolver rack to use in midichain with the MEK.

Re: Mono Evolver KB vs Prophet 08

you have both.... you use them both... you love them both...

that's a great info. Perhaps I need to test the P08 more in depth... side by side with the MEK. I hope to find and enjoy the differences because I really hate to sell synth I loved so much.

Mono Evolver KB vs Prophet 08

I have bought a MEK some months ago and I really like it. Now a friend of mine is selling his Prophet 08 Rack and I would like to buy the thing. It's like new, good price... and nothing is better than buying from a real friend. I know I wrote in a past thread that I liked MEK more than the P08 but n...

Wonderful sounds.The D50 is still a pad king.

Will you sell the sound bank ? My V-Synth XT has a free soundbank slot for it.

Re: Voyager vs 2 slim phattys

I had the same problem: Voyager RME or LP ? I was lucky enough to have them both side by side in a shop so I tried them and compared. They sound different. Well I'm not saying day & night... but different. It seems to me that the LP is slightly more aggressive, while the voyager more creamy and full...

Re: synsyn v andromeda

The only thing i know is that with the 5000€ you need for the new sunsyn you can buy 3 wonderful synths like Andromeda+prophet08 desktop+polyevolver rack. Think about it.

Re: SUNSYN mk2

It's exactly what I'm trying to say. We not have infinite money. We need to save and We like having more than one synth. That's why We doesn't spend 5000€ for ONE synth.

Re: SUNSYN mk2

It seems that some people thinks A, says B and does C. Take a look of the synths owned by who said that the Sunsyn is worth the cash. I take you ( memory cords ) as an example you said you would buy one if you have the cash. Well why didn't you do it instead of buying an Andromeda + OB MX and the MK...

Re: SUNSYN mk2

With 4999€ you can buy brand new combo like: Andromeda (well... not more) + Prophet08 + MoogSmall phatty . Now try to convince me that the Sunsyn is so amazing to choose it instead of a real amazing trio like A6+P08+SP. Let me think.... Well a Prophet 08 + Small phatty and a Vsynth Xt... yes anothe...

Re: SUNSYN mk2

I think we are all going crazy. 4999 € for a 8 voice desktop analog synth (with no so analog LFO). So ... the (ex) 16 voices Alesis Andromeda priced at 2300 € or the Prophet 08 priced 1900€ are only... well toys... they are not expensive enough to be considered "amazing" 16/8 voice analog synths.

Re: Anyone here upgraded DSI EVOLVER KEYBD to the POT versio

I have an earlier MEK. Encoders jumps here and there so I asked DSI. DSI sent me the Deoxit. After Deoxit it works like new... for some months. My last Deoxit cleaning was about 3 months ago. Now some encoder starts again to do weird things... so imho... the solution is to buy the POT upgrade.
