Ensoniq Mirage question

The other day my friend told me there is a way to get sounds for your ensoniq mirage from the web and transfer them by MIDI instead of messing with disks. Does anyone have any more info on this and where to go?

Re: Current Recording Artists Who Use Classic Synths

Stereolab has definately always been a Moog band, I think they own every Moog ever made. They used to always tour with the vintage moogs, vox and farfisa organs, and an EMS synthi A, but the last few tours are with the new stuff like the voyager, lp and nord for the organ and ep sounds. Pretty sure ...

Roland VP-330 vs. Korg VC-10

Has anyone played both vocoders and been able to compare sound? Obviously the VP330 seems like a better buy because you get the awesome string and choir vocal sounds but based on the vocoder functions alone, which do you think sounds better and gives you more range of sound?

Thinking about getting a MC 500

Are these pretty simple to learn how to use? I am wanting to use it for live performances. I'm also a bit confused on how it works... its a four track recorder and there are two midi out ports. So say you have two synths hooked up and a one track going to the first synth, second track going to the s...

Oberheim Systemizer

Has anyone ever heard of or used one of these? I'm trying to figure out if it will work with my prophet 600 and allow me to split patches on it. Feel free to share any info you have on it

Re: Other 8-bit samplers?

I've owned both the Emulator II and Mirage and I actually prefer the Mirage. It's a whole lot easier to find disks for, way cheaper, and way more portable. I also don't think the Mirage is that difficult to edit...you can find the parameter card sheet online and yer good to go :arrow:

Arp Solus trouble with release

I have an Arp Solus... everything works perfect on it except for the release slider. When you move the slider it doesnt affect the sound at all it just acts as if its all the way up all the time. This also causes the notes not to retrigger. I've taken it apart multiple times trying to look for somet...
