Re: Collecting synths has been a better investment than my 401K?

They still require maintenance though, something stocks don't. Also you don't need to insure stocks, and insurance costs money. If you really want to make your synths an investment then use them to make music, play shows, sell records. :idea: Also makes them tax deductible. Good points. I make a li...

Re: Collecting synths has been a better investment than my 401K?

You make it all sound so easy, which makes me doubt you have ever dealt with an insurance company before. I have all of my gear insured through Clarion; http://www.clarionins.com/ I chose Clarion after they covered a buddy of mine who had his apartment broken into. It did take about a month and a h...

Nice Jams. 'Jus' Gimme Dat Funk' and 'Mercenary' Bass are my two favs.

Re: i dont get something

Instead of just making emulations of older synths, why don't synth manufacturers just make the old synth? I mean couldn't Moog Music just bust out the old Mini blueprints and just make those? So people can get a real Minimoog, which would probably be somewhat cheap, without making anything better? ...

Re: i dont get something

It's my understanding that the components are no longer available to make exact replications of the classics and thus they don't have the same tone. I'm far from scholarly on this subject though so I'm sure someone else can give you a more informed opinion! It should be noted as well that guys like ...

Re: Is there really such a thing as a bad sounding Model D?!

I think it really depends on whether you're making songs or making gear demos really. I like songs better, girls dance to them. I'm down with that except that I can't right a song unless I'm inspired and a virtual mini just ain't gonna do it for me. I do envy the people who are happy with the resul...

Re: Is there really such a thing as a bad sounding Model D?!

Whatever you say, the fact is that i CAN'T get a model D because none are available anywhere, and if they are, they want ridiculous prices for them. "I'll take a Fairlight CMI 3 before a Minimoog any day"..right. I'd love to live in a house over looking the beach in Malibu but they want ridiculous ...

Re: Is there really such a thing as a bad sounding Model D?!

Duplicate, no. Approximate, sure. Bingo! I owned a Phatty TE and I now own a Voyager. Both are great synths but neither one nails the tone of the Model D. Depending on the patch, the differences can range from very subtle to extremely obvious ('extremely obvious' is not always a bad thing either!)....

Re: Is there really such a thing as a bad sounding Model D?!

Yeah, I've been reading up on all the specifics but sadly my little brain grasps very little when it comes to the more technical odds and ins. Here's the quote that inspired this thread; "Bob Moog said that the sound is the same between old and new osc board and seems to prefer the last version…. be...

Is there really such a thing as a bad sounding Model D?!

What's the deal with the 'different' Model D revisions? I know that not all Model D's are created 'equally' but has anyone actually ever played one that sounded 'thin' or 'cold'? I can understand that there would be slight variances but I just can't imagine that there are well maintained mini's that...
