Roland gaia arpeggiator

wondering if anyone has figured out how to get basic, useful arpeggios out of this thing? I'm basically trying to get it to sound like the arp on a juno 60. but it doesnt seem to just do basic up, down, up/down with octave range selection.. I've even tried the gaia sh 01 tool.. why do new synth manu...

jx3p chorus

hi, my jx3p chorus has stopped working.. everything else on the synth works fine, the chorus led will light up and it is still controllable from the pg200 but when engaged the chorus just isnt there.. wondering if anyone had any experience in repairing this or ideas on where to start looking, thanks

trying to find the right sampler

Hi, looking for some advice on samplers.. my main use for it is I want to sample sounds from my jd800 so I dont have to drag that beast out to shows anymore. only requirements are that it has a keyboard (no rack units), is relatively light/portable, at least 2 part multi-timbral and the less expensi...

Re: Should I keep the jx-3p?

JX3P is an awesome buy, you'll dig it.. in my experience its hard to replicate its sound on other synths, 2 osc routings, sort of thin but really bassy when you need it to be.. i use it a lot!

Re: Polysix vs Polivoks

he says it has some issues but everything is working, i think its mostly just a little dinged up cosmetically.. i've got access to a really great tech too so i think i could get it worked on if need be. do you think the resale/trade value is that of the polysix?

Polysix vs Polivoks

been offered a trade for my beloved korg polysix.. do you think I should go for it? I've got plenty of 80s analog polys (juno 60, sci p600, jx3p) but no russian duophonics!
