Re: Here is the Roland S-50 Library!

Well, this makes my job so much easier. Thanks :P

I remember hearing the classic fairlight "vox" sound in this video, so supposedly it's hidden away somewhere in the library.

Making Roland S50 samples into a soundfont.

I thought this would be easy using the correct programs. Using Chicken System's Translator program, I converted the S50 disk images into the soundfont format, opened up FL Studio, and tried to use them only to discover that the samples don't loop properly. So I used Vienna to get the original sample...

JX-3P vs Juno 60

Which is more programmable? Can the JX-3P achieve a greater variety of sounds than the Juno 60?

Sound Blaster Pro (YMF262) vst

I've been looking into the soundchip that was used for the old Sound Blaster Pro sound card. I found that the soundchip used to run the soundcard was the YMF262 sound chip. Is there a VST for this sound chip?

Is there a Simmons SDSV vst?

In my latest search result in regarding the sounds of the 80s, I found that the SDSV is one of the first electronic drumsets and was widely used in the 80s by artists such as: Prince, Def Leppard, Duran Duran. I was wondering if there was a vst that emulated the drum brain of the Simmons SDSV?

Phoscyon is so frustrating to use in Sonar. The online manual is not helping at all. How do I get the patterns in the Phoscyon demo to be loaded into the Sonar sequencer? How can I get the pattern to play? Also, the demo is not letting me control the BPM. What's up with that?

Suitable softsynths for TB 303 and TR 909

I'm finding that Rebirth isn't giving me the sounds I need for a good TB 303 and TR 909 emulation. I suppose samples would be the next best thing for the 909, but what about the TB-303? Any suggestions?

I've only been able to find visuals for bank A in the manual. It's factory B I want.

This page has a few audio examples of bank B.

Juno 60: Programming Factory Presets Bank B

I recently got me a Juno 60, and I love it. One thing that bites though is that while there is a manual that shows how you can program in the factory presets (bank A), there is no manual to show how you can program in some of the presets of bank B.

Can anyone help?

I just have to say that after selling softsynths for years (and thusly getting them all for free) I no longer delude myself into thinking that they sound like their analog counterparts. They are easier to program, they are lighter (and usually cheaper, too), but please people, they don't *sound* li...

Yes, but not enough for an adequate evaluation. I really need to spend a good hour or two pushing the each instrument to its limit to see if the other can match the sound. In the brief A-B test that I did, the Jupiter 8V was surprisingly close to the Jupiter 8. I zeroed all of the parameters of bot...

I agree that if I have a "digitial" synth, then I should go with an analog synth.

The sounds I want from a synth is a moog-sounding bass, and powerful strings and pads and effects that are heard like in "These Dreams" by Heart.

The Juno 60 strings sound very fat compared to the JX 3P and Juno 106.

Need help choosing a vintage synth

Hey everyone. I'm thinking of get getting a Juno synth, something that would sound great with my DX7. I've read that the Juno 60 is punchier than the 106, but the 106 strings are far-out. I'm sort of thinking about the D50, because I also want to do some late 80s/early 90s dance-house music in addit...

A good Jupiter 8 sounding synth

Ok, I am wanting to have a synth that do everything a Jupiter 8 can do. First, there is the old Roland Super Jupiter MKS 80. In order to program the synth efficiently, the MPG programing controller is required. It's debatable whether it sounds like the Jupiter 6 or Jupiter 8. The cost of it can go u...

I can't seem to find analog filters for keyboards, just only ones for guitars. What shops carry analog filters for keyboards?
